This Week at Mon Ami

Greetings!  It is a beeeeeeuuuuuutiful day here in Florence!  We’ve got a busy week here in Mon Ami Land ahead of us.  We continue to bring in some lovely pieces here at the shop from a local estate, and the team is working hard to prepare for our upcoming sale this Friday & Saturday.  Here’s a little more info for you …

Estate Sale this Friday & Saturday (2/27-28).  This is a complete liquidation of the contents of both the home and garage.  As I mentioned last week, this sale is conducted on behalf of Bill and Virginia Butt who many of you will recognize as long-time supporters of our local events center.  Virginia is also an accomplished artist.  Both have moved to Elderberry Square care center and it is our privilege to handle the disposition of their home.  You’ll find a plethora of lovely things here – furniture & antiques, art/painting/needlwork supplies (including a sweet little French portable easel that makes me wish I could paint!), lots and lots of household goods and kitchen appliances, a garage full of tools, clothing, and many of Virginia’s original paintings (as well as one of local artist Bernie Herr).  I’ve posted a few pictures on my website and will send out a full picture album on Wednesday.
Upcoming Sale:  Hot on the heels of this weekend’s sale is another FABULOUS sale on 3/6 and 3/7 in Florentine Estates.  Stay tuned!

Upcoming Estate Sales
February 27 & 28 … my team will be conducting a “downsizing” estate sale on behalf of Bill & Virginia Butz the last weekend of this month.   Bill and Virginia have been long time customers of Mon Ami and familiar faces to everyone as ushers at the FEC.  They have moved to Elderberry Square.  We are busy pricing the items in their lovely home on 10th street and will have a house and garage full of furniture, tools, art supplies, and household goods for you to choose from.
March 6 & 7 … the first weekend of March, we’ll be in Florentine Estates showcasing a beautiful home full of lovely furnishings, including a baby grand piano!  
I’ll have more info to follow on both of these sales and will let you know when pictures are up for your viewing.

Greetings on a wet & windy coastal morning! I bought a couple of flats of pansies yesterday, thinking I’d pop them in the ground today for a hint of spring …. well, that’s not gonna happen!

Valentine’s Day High Tea:  Our 1pm seating is full, but we still have a few tables available at the 11am seating.  Diane has prepared a spectacular menu for this coming Saturday’s special event and we’re looking forward to a wonderful tea!  You can make your reservation by calling Mon Ami at 541-997-9234.
Estate Liquidation:  THIS FRIDAY 9-3 at the Mon Ami Annex  (two doors down from Mon Ami).  We’re moving the last items from estates in Florentine, Coast Village, and Greentrees and will be opening on Friday for a one day sale.  Lots of tools, kitchen & household goods, depression glass, dressers, odds & ends.  We’ll also have some of the antique pieces moved into Mon Ami, including Persian rugs, European tapestries, a large collection of cast iron trivets, some vintage fur coats, and a plethora of interesting “stuff”.  I’ll be sending out a web album Wednesday or Thursday.

Greetings to all on this beautiful Monday morning!  It has been spectacular here on the Oregon Coast this last couple of days and if this morning’s lovely sunrise is any indication, today will be another gorgeous day!

Upcoming Events:
2/14 – our seventeenth (wow!) annual Valentine High Tea on Saturday, February 14, is open for reservations.  We have seatings at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  Diane is keeping the menu a secret, but if you’ve ever attended one of our specialty teas, you KNOW it will be fabulous!
Mon Ami Annex Sale – I’ll have the Annex (just 2 doors down from Mon Ami) open both Wednesday and Friday of this week.  We’re moving in furniture and household goods from estates in both Florentine and Greentrees.  Starting in February, the Annex will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (and Saturday’s when the spirit moves me).

We welcome a NEW face to the Mon Ami Team!  Miss Marin James joins us as a part-time assistant in the cafe and has already hit the ground running!  I have known Marin since she was a toddler living in the apartment over our shop and she would sneak down the stairs to get a free cookie when no one was looking. (Yikes, that was a loooooong time ago!) So if you notice a new face behind the counter, that’s Marin – please introduce yourself to her!
As always thank you for your friendship and continued patronage of our cozy little shop! Hope you have a lovely week!

Greetings – it’s a beautiful day in Florence! We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the sun stays shining for another day or two at least, as we have an Experience Oregon tour bus coming tomorrow for high tea. They’re planning to visit all the shops in Old Town as well and its always more fun for folks if its not pouring down rain!

Estate Sale Update: Our massive warehouse estate liquidation in Eugene has been rescheduled for the first weekend in April. There’s far more there to organize and price than we originally anticipated and it’s going to take us quite a bit longer than planned to set up. We just discovered 3 additional storage units there of antiques, lighting, and beautiful furniture used to stage custom built homes! I’ll keep you pasted as we get closer.

Valentine High Tea: Is it that time again already???!!! Yes, we’ll be hosting our annual Valentine Tea this year … on Valentine’s Day!!! We’ll offer two seatings at 11:00 and 1:00, Saturday, February 14. Get your reservations early!
