Merry Christmas from The Plum Tree

I would like to take this time to Thank all of you... our loyal customers for another great year at the Plum Tree. To all of you that have greeted and accepted me as part of the Plum Tree after seeing Dawn and Marti all the years before, I appreciate your kindness.

I have really enjoyed each and every one of your visits and getting to know you better like a dear friend.

After the New Year, as some of you know there will be a few changes to the interior of the store starting with a fresh paint job, a great little garden area for those nifty little vintage treasures just in time for spring and much more. Please come see the changes as they transpire.

In the mean time, I would like to send my warmest wishes to each of you and your families for Christmas.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday!

11 Days ~ Countdown to Christmas

~Number Please ~

It has been said that the little cottage that houses The Plum Tree is at least 100 years old. The picture below was taken between 1914 and 1922 when it was the McDonough telephone office. The photo shows the operator "Kate Fisher" sitting in front of her switchboard which is now the main room of The Plum Tree.

The windows in the front looks out to the sidewalk and the front door is just to the right. The only evidence that the switchboard was there are pipes in the ceiling which the lines ran through.

This is Whitey, or so that is what we call him. He came to live at The Plum Tree a month or so ago, very thin and dirty. We fed him, talked to him and cared for him until he trusted us. He will let us pet him now, and is very loving although he does like to nip you for no reason. He really is a nice little fellow, was once probably someones pet since he does like humans, he has also be neutered so how he ended up with us we can only guess. Whitey has the most amazing sky blue eyes (can you see them)?

We are currently running a great end of the year sale on almost every item in the store. Savings from 10% to 30% can be found on everything from Christmas decor to furniture.
Hope you enjoy the photos below.

We have a huge amount of crocheted items, linens and lace.

Beautiful note cards perfect for those Christmas gift thank yous

Beautiful china cabinet ~ very roomy

We have a large selection of garden statuary perfect for that special gardener in your life.
Have you ever forced paper whites for the holidays? They are so simple since the bulbs will grow in no more then a few pebbles in the bottom of a container of your choice. Mine are just starting to bud and will last well through Christmas.
This is just the best pair of antique chairs which have been painted a satin black. There are a total of four available.

This small antique table is perfect to fit behind a small sofa or in an entry way.
Child's desk with drawer and pull out writing top.
