What Are You Doing Labor Day Week-End?

So, here's how my store, Country Roads, celebrates Labor Day week-end! We first have to put up with the Orange International Street Faire. The streets in Old Towne Orange are closed from Thursday before midnight through Sunday at midnight. What happens, total chaos! The non-profits sell food and ALCOHOL! Then you throw in some bands, such as the Greek band that plays all day outside our front door while the "happy" people dance in the street, and its hotter than hell and some people are so drunk they stumble, they fall, and some throw up! It just makes for a dandy week-end! It is like working in a carnival environment, totally crazy! But have no fear, because on Labor Day Monday, the 7th, from 10am - 5pm Country Roads is having a HUGE, one day sale:"I SURVIVED THE ORANGE INTERNATIONAL STREET FAIRE SALE". Just like magic, the Street Faire and the chaos it brings with it is gone and we have this great sale. Our vendors are offering some great percentages off some really great merchandise, including holiday stuff as well. For example, Johnnye Merle Gardens is having 20% off on all plants. There is plenty of free parking, the sidewalks have been hosed down and cleaned of everything that was unpleasantly left on them! I hope you can stop by, it is an awesome sale and worth the trip to see us!! Also, not too far away from us, you can stop in and visit Rogers Gardens down in Corona del Mar. Starting today, they have their awesome Halloween displays open for the public to see. They decorate over the top, believe me. Their talents are amazing. We are always anxious to go as the past few years they have purchased stuff from Country Roads for these displays. It's always fun to see what they have done with the treasures they picked up at our store. For those of you in Northern CA, if you are in the area, please stop by the Alameda Flea Market on Sunday the 6th. Tim & Lisa, our newer amazingly talented Country Roads dealers, are taking my son Bryce with them to sell here. Stop by and get a "feel & peek" into what Country Roads is really like. Be sure to tell them I said "hi"!I can guarantee you, you will love what Tim, Lisa, and Bryce have for sale! I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day week-end, and manage to find the time to stop by for our big sale!! See you then!!
