25% Off

Hey everybody! I am having a booth wide 25% off at Grannie's Attic. Ready to move out the old and get ready to refurnish with some different stuff. I'm getting tired of seeing the same old things in there. So if you have been eyeballing anything and wishing, now is the time to come on in and buy. Most cassettes will be 75 cents. An antique table and chairs will be $150.00. Just the chairs are worth more than that!

There are persimmon wood golf clubs, lots of knick knacks, pictures, iron crosses, wire baskets, etc. The wire baskets are new, not used, and would make really cute Christmas presents. So that is my sales pitch. Let's see if it works!

The Market Place

Here are some pictures from the new flea market which has opened in Monticello. It is located beside Queen City Furniture at the intersection of Hwy 425 and Hwy 278. There are still booths open for rent so if you have ever thought of getting into this business, now is the time.

I am excited about the direction our town is taking with all the flea market type businesses and resale shops. I will try and name the ones I can think of and if I miss one, I do apologize. There is Grannie's Attic, The Market Place, Discount Furniture houses one, Pam's store on the square (can't remember the name right now), Kay's Nest, Thrifty Chic, and Twice As Nice. And there is also the one in the old bus depot on Gaines. I hope all these shops will draw business for us from all around. More sales mean more sales tax for our city!


Things in life sometimes change more quickly than we would like. Mom moved in with me on August 31st. So far we are making it fine together. We have help during the day while I am at work and then we spend time together at night. I am so thankful for the opportunity to spend this last bit of time with her before she progresses to the later stages of her Alzheimer's. She has been a good mother and I hope I can repay her just a bit in the next few weeks or months.
Looking at the following pictures you can see how difficult it is for her at my house (LOL):
