Just arrived at Barnhills, travel pillows for kids. These pillows are great for kids (of all ages) for traveling to cover that seat belt and make sleeping easier. They come in a variety of patterns – sure to please even the pickiest of children.
The Gerry Anderson Production of the Thunderbirds series by Joan Marie Verda makes great reading for that young son or daughter who dreams of action and adventure or of becoming an astronaut.
The Thunderbird series: Countdown to Action, Action Alert and Deadly Danger would make a great Christmas presents! All 3 books are now available at Barnhills in Winston-Salem. We also have gift wrapping and Christmas cards available.
The decorating divas of Barnhills have been at it again. We have moved almost EVERYTHING in the store. Come see what we have done because it may not stay that way for long. We are after all The Decorating Divas of Barnhills.
Something I learned very quickly on the road to entrepreneurship is that just about the time you’ve put all of the pieces into place, you find out there was a permit for piece placing and now you have to start all over.
Permits? We don’ need no stinkin’ permits!!
Okay, we do, but why does it have to be such a long road? The building inspector was at the store this morning when I arrived at 8:45. The ramp isn’t done yet and we need to have a welder out to finish the metal hand rails. It was a damp day in the beautiful South and no welder in their right mind would think of throwing out an arc in that weather. So, no approval means no permit means we can’t open yet.
Thankfully, the ad that promised we would be open started running on tv today. The ultimate joke’s on me! So, we’re shooting for Wednesday, March 31 as our opening date.
Otherwise, I will be such an April Fool.
But, the store is beautiful and ready to go. At least everything except the wines which we can’t stock until we get our permit. Which we can’t have until after the building permit. Which we can’t have until after the ramp is finished.
So how is May looking? You guys busy then? Maybe I can have the doors open by then.
Until then, browse through the rooms electronically.

Come visit me on Wednesday. I hope.
The forlorn wine room. Waiting for lovely bottles to fill it.
2/25/10 The kitchen is just ugly. The floor is bad and it needs a make over!
3/29/10 Now it is SO pretty with it’s new floor and it smells of Casanova’s fudge and coffee. Yum. Come have a cup with me.
We’re going to have Angelina’s teas in there too!
