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.

Valentine’s Day has come and gone for another year; and St. Patrick’s Day is up to bat as the next “colorful” holiday.

Yes, Washington’s Birthday is still in the mix.  But other than red for Cherry pie, his birthday is not too colorful.  There is a antique/vintage red hat in the “Harriet’s Hats” collection that is decorated with cherries.  Come try it on, and have Elizabeth take your picture, your camera or hers.  You don’t even have to be a member of a ‘Red Hat Club’ to pose in this beauty.  The hat is available for: $35.00

Back to “Thinking Green”: We have a very lovely set of  Green Colonial Homestead China.  Utilizing antique and vintage dishware saves money on buying a set of dishes, and gives some “heritage” feeling to the dinner table.  Antique and vintage sets of dishes are routinely priced considerably less than comparable sets of new.

We also have some really nice pieces of green pottery planters.  You can, naturally, put a green plant in your planter…we have lots of organically raised plants in the greenhouse on site. Or, the planters can be usefully repurposed as desk organizers, or bedroom dresser or bathroom organizers.

Between now and St. Patrick’s Day, anything predominantly green in color will be 25% off in the Shop.

I have some REALLY BIG boxes of dishware to finish sorting through this month.  John and Michael brought the remainder of a storage unit of my family things back to the farm.  I have about a box a day to go through for awhile! Look for new items being brought in to the Shop. 

Also, if you’ve been waiting to buy something that you’ve seen in the Shop, don’t wait.  Someone was very disappointed last week that some pieces were sold.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Repurpose.

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.

Harriet loved to collect things.

She had all sorts of kitchen utensils, pots and pans spanning many generations of all sides of the family.

Cabinets full of lovely cut glass sparkled under the dining room chandelier.

While kitchen and dining paraphernalia was a great joy to her, her favorite thing was clothes. She really would have loved to be a clothing designer. One whole room of her huge Victorian house was dedicated to sewing and various needlework materials. Since she loved to collect things, she kept clothes.

She not only kept her clothes, she kept those of others. She had many outfits from the 1940s. She had her own clothes. She kept several gift outfits from Barbara, her sister in law. Her mother in law, Etta, downsized and later passed on, and among the items that Harriet brought home probably included hats. Her husband Westen’s aunt, Lorene, also downsized and later passed on, and among the items that Harriet brought home probably included some hats. Her mother, Mary, lived with her and Westen. When Mary passed, Harriet kept many of her mother’s things, including clothes, and probably included hats. There were also a few men’s hats found for the collection.

Even some hat boxes.

And hat pins.

Of course, there were also gloves and pocketbooks, compacts and jewelry. But those are another story.

In all, there appear to be approximately forty-seven hats, and some boxes. We, a son and daughter in law, three grand-daughters, three great-grand-daughters, a grandson, and other family appreciate the hats. But we cannot possibly utilize them all.

So, Harriet’s hats are in our family antique shop.  Some have already been sold.  Some are marked with their size. Some are one size fits (mostly) all.  Caitrin has cataloged them. Elizabeth has photographed them. And they are for sale.  We will have some in our ebay store soon at fixed prices, and also for bid.  In the meantime, we will be putting up a gallery of the hats. SOON. 

They are in the shop, as well as some gloves, hat pins, and purses.

I’ve been asked to do some ladies club shows with the hats.  We may do a few. But we are more likely to keep them in the shop for visitors.  Perhaps we’ll do a book.  We can definitely do an article!  And at the moment, they are a pleasant reminder of days gone by, when everyone wore hats to complete their outfits, for church, and visiting, and luncheons. Memories are precious.  We may even find photos that match the hats.  We have noted photos that matched some of the purses! We’ll keep you posted.
