A Wonderful Time Was Had By All!

SUZANNA'S is Raleigh's place for treasure hunters to find retro and vintage, a place for friends to meet and a place to kick back and have fun.
Last evening was one of those times. The grand opening banner ribbon was up and the scissors were decorated for the 'ribbon'-cutting celebration. The treasures were in place to be found by the throng of people who came to find their heart's desires. We were treated to wine and hor d'oeuvres, the weather was gorgeous - it could not have been a better evening for the official grand opening of the new section of SuzAnna's!

The proud proprietoresses in their darling vintage aprons that could be bought right off them.

Pink Love

I passed up this silver teapot lamp...what was I thinking?! hmmm, wonder if it's still sitting in the cozy corner display? I may go back for it. It was a bargain!

The vintage hankies and aprons where hung with care

This lovely little victorian chair was finished with a beautiful pastoral upholstery.

The lovely owners of SuzAnna's - Anna and Suzanne ready to cut the 'ribbon'...........

...........and the opening is now official!

Some of the treasurer hunters and well-wishers.

Among those enjoying the evening's events: Vicki (who secretly reads our blogs!:)... isn't she cute in that vintage hat?... VANESSA, myself and MARY. Check out Vanessa and Mary's blogs for more about our evening at Suzanna's.

This is part of Sam's Country Porch and Garden next to Suzanna's - beautiful flowers, plants, veggies, old tools, and old rustic furniture.

Yes! A wonderful time was had by all!
