The Shop and the Greenhouse are Permanently Closed.

We are working on downsizing…a wide variety of items. I’ll be posting ways to find us on eBay, Etsy, Letgo, and Various Facebook local area Yard Sale sites.

I do post on the Facebook page at “Antiques at Morgan Lane” and “Morgan Lane Enterprises – the Shops at Morgan Lane”.  Also, general postings on the page for “Organic Greenhouse at Morgan Lane”.

The “Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm” Facebook page and my Facebook page “Georgia Denman” are also active and ways to find us.  We still have many Morgan Horses, several trained and/or started, to finish yourself or by your trainer.

Visit us online…

But, please remember that the Shops are Permanently Closed.

Hello,

The daffodils are starting to poke their leaves and buds up through the ground.  Other Spring bulbs are starting to put out fresh foliage, and soon we will have blooms around the farm.

It is time to come visit and see what is going on in the Shop, on the farm, and in the organic greenhouse.

Either for yourself, or for a Valentine gift, or other gift, we carry the complete line of Jim Long Herb books, with most available all the time. 
Jim has been growing and studying Herbs for years; and has several interesting books, that range from $4.95 to $19.95.

An especially fun gift for Valentine’s Day or a Winter doldrums treat are Jim’s dream pillows and his books about them, how to make them, and love potions. 

Dream Pillows and Love Potions Subtitle: Dream Pillows, Aphrodisiacs, Love Potions, and Other Herbal Delights. (6) We have the books on sale for $3.95 each.

         If making your own pillows, Mr. Long cautions NOT to use potpourri or “fragrance” oils.  These are made using petrochemicals with additives.  He recommends use of “essential oils” made from steam or alcohol extraction from the actual herb or flower plant.

          Dream Pillows in Stock in the Shop: (2 Restful) (2 Romantic) (1 Creativity) (1 Pleasant) $8.95 @

Description by Mr. Long: Aromatherapy for your dreams.  Ready to use. No preservatives, oils or artificial fragrances; only pure natural herbs and flowers. 

Directions by Mr. Long: Remove from package and place inside bedroom pillow pillowcase.  Results should be noticeable in one to two nights. Will last for a year or more. Use for ten days and then remove, and store in a plastic bag, for ten days.  Works for most people. Fun and easy to use. Discontinue if allergic to plants or flowers or if sneeze when using. 

You can also visit and order from Mr. Long’s website: www.LongCreekHerbs.com If you do, tell them that Georgia from Morgan Lane sent you.

We also have gift certificates, and interesting glassware, plants, and tourist and foodie brochures for ideas for quick day trips.

The seedlings are starting to pop up in the greenhouse. Everything is raised organically.  Come visit. Stay a few minutes or a few hours.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Repurpose. Antiques are the ultimate in recycling.

Find a replacement for an old treasure. Create a new memory.

You are welcome to visit from 10:00am until 4:00pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Stay tuned for more ideas to get a burst of Spring, or a quick pick-me up for a grey day.

We had a lot of wind and storm damage last week.  No one, people or critters, were seriously injured. But the skylight panels in the roof of the Annex were broken, and multiple trusses were seriously cracked.  Fortunately we had taken some of the items out for the Estate Sale in September, but Antique magazines were ruined by water damage; and some other items as well.

The roof on the Antique Shop held up better.  That was probably because we had the building tied together well with rough cut cross-beams.  There was still some damage there also, at the roof and windows.

For those of you who have been here, the shade area with picnic table, friends’ rose, specialty honeysuckle and another special multi-blooming rose was completely knocked down.  The heavy support columns were broken off at the ground. The plants will probably make it…with heavy pruning back.  There was more damage at the greenhouse shade area; and to the old barn, and other out-buildings.

So, we have been pulling more items out of the Annex in preparation for the construction repair team to replace the bad trusses and roof.

Some things are a loss to the weather.  Others made it through just fine.  “We” had lots of stacks of interesting old magazines and journals on various topics.  I had also started to set aside books for a ‘used book’ store.  Most of those were not damaged.  We also had a section of old bottles, and some old cookware.  Caitrin got a lesson on Dromedary Dixie lidded loaf pans while we were moving items. Plus some camping equipment and various shelves and stands were in there.

We will be having a major book sale soon.  Watch for the notice on my blog and via Facebook and ads.  Some books will be “flea market/yard sale priced”; some will be “used book prices”; and some will be “rare book” priced. 

We will be bringing MANY boxes of books, out of storage, and over to the Shop from John’s and my parents’ Estates too.  Some are very old, and rare.  It is interesting to see what titles have been popular over the decades.  Somewhere, we also have old military service magazines from the Second World War Era.  We are hoping to find those and get them offered “For Sale”.

We will be donating some things; and others will be going to auctions, or ebay.  It is good because it is making me “clean house”; clearing out items I just keep hanging on to for someday. Once the Annex is rebuilt, we will bring more items out of storage for sale, and hopefully establish a ‘used book’ section, for adults and children, as part of the Shops. 

We are also working on Gift packages for the holidays, hostess presents, and Gift Certificates.

We’ll keep you posted.

This week is the U S Route 411 Yard Sale. Several people have already set up their tables along the highway. Friends of ours, the Hardens, who sell fancy glass like Fenton and cast iron items, such as Griswold and Wagner, have tables set up at the RV park near the corner of 163 (the Bowater Road). We will have some items with them.
We will also have a SALE in the Antique Shop to go along with the Yard Sale nearby. We are about 3 miles off of Route 411.

We are also having the FINAL WEEK of our Autumn Plant Sale at the greenhouse. We have houseplants, hanging baskets, shrubs, culinary herbs and pepper plants on sale.

All items in the Antique Shop will be ON SALE.

We have some really nice glass and china items, which would be unique, unusual accents for home décor. Some really special lighters are in the shop. We’ll have some new to the Shop vintage  jewelry from ancestors’ jewelry boxes this week too!

You can see many of our available items at the Shop’s Gallery on www.ImagesnMemories.com, Elizabeth’s photography site; and from the link tab on our Home Page.

We will be happy to answer questions about height, width, maker’s marks, etc. Email: DenmanFam@aol.com
Pacifica products: Perfumes, candle, soaps and body butters: will be on sale at 10% off. We have autumn scents, tropicals, florals, and herbs, long-lasting for women and men. The candles are clean burning and all natural.

There are also Fall Festivals in Benton and Etowah this weekend, which are both near to our farm.  Also, there is an Open Horse Show in Englewood, on Route 411, which we are also supporting.  We have a block on the Appalachian Quilt Trail, and there is a quilt show as part of the Benton Festival, and the Polk County News has a new quilt block on the Trail.  We have lots of informative brochures available for local food sources, and sight-seeing in East Tennessee. 

Besides the over-all SALE, we will also have DAILY SPECIALS. Keep checking. I promise I will write more about what is in the Shop.

Antiques are a special, exciting way to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose.
