St. Marys Food Bank Auction!

Auction Item benefitting St. Mary's Food BankWe wanted to let all our friends know about a great cause we are supporting, and one that needs your help as well! We were recently approached by a friend and representative of a local branch of St. Mary's Food Bank. She informed of us that St. Mary's Food Bank more than ever needs donations to support the growing number of individuals and families in need of assistance.

We just happened to have this amazing 18-light chandelier that has never been hung - and we want to auction it off to all of you - 100% of proceeds going directly to St. Mary's!

This chandelier retails for $2000. We will start our bidding at $500.

Bidding will begin Monday, 11 and end Saturday at 5:30pm on May 16.

You may call us, email us or stop by the store with your bids. The blog will be updated daily with the latest bid high. Bids must go in $25 increments.

The winner will be expected to pay their bid in full within a week of the auction's end. If they do not, the chandelier will go to the next in line. Winner may write a check directly to St. Mary's or to The Willows and drop the check off at The Willows.

Do something beautiful for your home while helping other homes in need.

Can't bid in the auction, but want to know how you can help? Visit St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance for more information on ways you can volunteer and donate.

The Willows would like to thank all of you who have participated so far in our food drive. All of the food that has been dropped off has been donated, and we will continue to take food through-out the summer. Remember, bring in 10 items and get $10 off our FEED the children reversible handbags!

Jewel Ya for The Willows

Our dear Julia of Jewel Ya jewelry really collaborated with us this Mother's Day - we are excited to show you what happens when local women business owners really put their heads together.

We give you - The Mom Card! Jewel Ya designed necklaces exclusively for these special cards that hold not only the necklace - but a special message for mom! Here are just a couple samples of the many that we have made!

We also designed the "Graduate" card for all those graduating soon! We are so proud of our graduates, and we hope you are too! Show them with these inspirational quotes and a necklace that will remind them forever.

A Toast to Mom

In honor of Mother's Day coming up May 10th, we thought it appropriate to give a toast to mom's everywhere - a black toast that is! Introducing our newly restocked Black Toast collection of dishware by Bridgewater. With sayings like "so saucy" and "but even domestic goddesses and kitchen queens have to do the washing up sometimes" these are sure to win mom's heart on Mother's Day!

Even better - cook mom a special meal and have it prepared in her new special dishes! Fresh flowers in a Bridgewater pitcher are always nice too!

Ok, we'll say it - the economy is not the greatest right now. All of us are sick of talking about it (my favorite is Jaimee Rose's way of skirting the issue..."rhymes with depression"), and all of us are just weathering the storm while visions of home remodels and shopping sprees dance in our heads.

We thought we would bring some spring cheer to all of you by letting you know that we are proudly moving forward with in-home design consultations that will renew your homes and spirits without breaking your wallet! For a standard fee, we are happy to sit down with you in your home and discuss what little changes (a re-upholstery, a re-arranging, or even a few added touches) you can do to renew your home and give it that extra, well, Willows feel!

Some of the services we provide include:

-custom bedding and pillow design

-home staging and room redesign (furniture rental NOT provided)
-outdoor furniture/pillows/cushions/drapery/planters
-upholstery, slipcovers, draperies, rugs, and monogramming -accessory and table-setting placement -and much, much more!

Please call us with your specific request!
(Please note that all pictures represents the design esthetic of The Willows, and are not actual pictures of clients' homes. To view client portfolio, please stop by the store. )

Initial design consultations can determine your needs, and establish what further appointments, if any, are necessary. Please call us or stop by the store for more information!
