My Grandmother Minnie Jane

So as promised here is a picture of my grandmother Minnie Jane..which my antique store is named after. She was really a farm lady. Raised 9 kids and actually traveled from Missouri out to Washington State a few times with all these 9 kids. Can you imagine doing that with some in diapers.No pampers then. One of her sons was killed in WW11 which was a huge tragedy. So my grandmother always lived on a farm and my dad was a farmer also. Yes I was raised on a farm and it was wonderful. But that is another story.Grandma was a short lady and her hair was black and long. Which she always wore in a bun. Oh so much to tell about her. She was very patient with us kids.She taught sunday school and we were her pupils. This picture was taken in the Methodist Church which I grew up in and married in.
A little bit about the antique store.We are doing great but being tied down to every saturday is not to wonderful especially since were both retired and hearing about our friends traveling somewhere. So hope you all enjoy looking at the picture of my grandmother Minnie Jane. Sally

Potting Bench!

Isnt this the most fantastic Potting Bench youve ever seen...It would look so cool on my patio but it is either going in Minnie Jane's shop or to Country Nesters show this June. Mr. Minnie Jane built it with an old window and he has promised me one for our patio. I think it would be great to use it for buffet for Bar-b-q's besides using it to pot plants. So if you are ever in Richland Washington stop in at Minnie Jane's. Sally (granddaughter to Minnie Jane)

Minnie Jane's Antique Store!

After many years of renting a space and doing shows my better half and I opened Minnie Jane's Antique Store.It has been a fun experience and alot of work. We are both retired and we decided there is nothing more that we would like to do but hunt for treasures. So what do you do with all the fun things we find? You cant become a hoarder so we had to do something with all the stuff we find..so this is it. Beside us is the most fantastic Vintage clothes shop. And antique malls around us. Oh forgot Minnie Jane's was my grandmothers name. I always love the name and her also. Someday I will post a pick of her to show you all. Well if you are ever in Richland Washington stop in..We are located in the uptown shopping mall in the breezeway. Open in the afternoon on thur,fri,& sat. Stop by...Sally
