After Christmas Recovery!

Man, we're STILL recovering from our Day After Christmas Sale - which, if you listen to those who were standing in line, was awesome, and very close to how Country Pickin's used to be the day after - we take that to be quite the compliment!
If you didn't make it in (or even if you did!), we've still got some great stuff left! We ordered far more product this year with the intent of getting it online. Since that process took a little longer than we anticipated, we've got some really fantastic stuff left, even now. Come in to the store right away to snag some great deals!
Speaking of online, Chris finally had the moments he needed to release the next batch of products - Colonial Tin lamps, lighting, bulbs, and more! So be sure to check out the online storefront, too - there's a lot of stuff there that you can't get in the store at the moment (and it may or may not stay that way!).

Christmas Sale & Hours Information!

Today is the first day of our pre-Christmas sale, and if you're not here - well, you're missing out! Come in this week for the following sales discounts before Christmas, and don't miss out on whatever (if anything which, as we look around the store, we're thinking will be very little!) is left after Christmas!

Merry Christmas, from all of us here at The Weed Patch!

Welcome Back, Weed Patch!

As it turns out, shortly after my post about the store having no power, the store power came back on (thanks, Grahame, for calling to tell us!). Interestingly enough, we recently switched over to a different server for the website, and it has taken some time to get that up and running. I BELIEVE we're now good to go, but that's definitely said with some crossed fingers.
Anyway, this is the last week before Christmas - and our Christmas stuff continues to shrink daily. Come on in for those last minute gifts, or just for some time out and about. If you're still without power, then come in and get warm and have some fun!

What a Season!

Between fantastic fun at the store, insane weather, an ultrasound that showed us a healthy baby BOY! (WOOHOO!), and now no power at the store, this Christmas Season has been crazy!
That's right - there's currently no power at The Weed Patch yet. It's 9am on Saturday December 16th as I write this, and we're hoping & praying for power sometime today - but we were hoping & praying for power sometime yesterday, too. The local utility crews are working as hard as they can, and right now we're just thankful that there was no damage to the store or the back patio in all this wind.
We'll keep you updated here, for those of you that are checking the site for information. Unfortunately, with no power comes no phone at the store, so we're really hoping that people aren't driving all the way out for The Village today.
We're also in the process of moving our website to a new, more stable server. As soon as that migration is complete we'll be updating the shopping cart software to create a more smooth checkout experience. We'll also be adding some really fantastic features, and - oh - close to 150 more products. This product update will include lamps, candle accessories, chandeliers, wax warmers, and more ... we're very excited! The next batch of products we'll be adding, following this batch, should be our Victorian Heart Quilted Throws, as well as many other Victorian Heart products - bedspreads, quilts, shams, pillow cases... keep your eyes here for more updates!
