Fall Sale Events

September 26 - October 10
Here comes September and here comes the semi-annual Sale. Starting on September 26 we'll be offering discounts on almost everything in the store. The standard is 20% off the regular price.
We've also been marking down a lot of merchandise to clear the way for new things coming in.

Just to make things more interesting and fun, we'll also be having a Wild Tree Tasting on Oct 3rd. That's a Saturday and as of this writing we're planning on 10 -2:00 PM. If you've never tried the Wild Tree products, you're in for a treat (literally).

I'm still working on other sale events - some give-aways, drawings, hopefully some artists.

If you're interested in being on The Gables mail list (either postal or email), contact me at We send out a postcard twice a year, but would like to send out some email updates 4 to 6 times a year. You can also sign up to 'follow' this blog (see box in right hand column) and will receive notice when there's a new posting.

Augustfest 2009 - Update

Another August, another Augustfest. Honestly, it gets better every year. The caliber of the artists and exhibitors just gets better. The quilt show was excellent and the hotdogs lived up to my memories. It rained hard all night and into the morning of the big day (exhibitors were setting up their tents in the rain). We held off putting up the Gables' tent until things dried out a little (kind of hard for anything to dry in that humidity). The crowds came out as the morning cleared up. It's so much fun to have that many people coming through the store. And we have the added bonus of being right next door to all the food and exhibitors.
Thanks to everyone who came out for Augustfest. It was a hot, humid day but a lot of fun.

Augustfest - August 8th

Look for our tent on the front lawn this coming Saturday, August 8th. I'm busy organizing and slashing prices on all sorts of merchandise. Most all of it is brand new. The day starts at 9 and the sale goes until 3.
There are a few clearance sales in the store. Yankee Candle products officially go on sale starting on Saturday at 25% off. We're also selling a lot of summer silk flowers at clearance prices.

This is a big day in downtown Wautoma. There's food, exhibitors, music, and lots and lots of traffic (for Wautoma).
We look forward to the corn roast every year. Not to mention the amazing hot dogs! The quilt show is another highlight - and the exhibitors in the big tent are fun too.
