Sippican's Christmas Roundup 2014
I'm very grateful to a lot of people for a lot of things. Life is hard, I guess, but so many people are kind to me on a regular basis that I've decided that the world is a pleasant place filled with nice people. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Some of the nicer people I could mention are readers here, and they support my sons' efforts via the PayPal tipjar, and you should think about laying some lucre on them this Christmas season. 32 Degrees North has old skool decorations, ornaments, cards, and gifts, the kind we adore here at the Cottage. Every year like clockwork they send my children Advent Calendars, which brings a big smile to their faces and a wistful tear to my eye. They've got Easter stuff, too, which is like Christmas with sightly less snow shoveling, so I like it even better. Go there now, there's no time to waste: 32 Degrees North.
Our friend Nora Gardner sells lovely dresses that make the guys go hubba hubba on Wall Street without stepping over the demure/brazen hussy line once. Nora's a bright young lady, and she's better looking than the pretty models she's got showing off her dresses, which doesn't seem fair, really. Her stuff is made right here in New York City.

Now for a bit of a ticklish topic. I've gone out of business. Sippican Cottage Furniture and Fastique are no more. I've sold furniture on the Internet for ten years now, which I'm pretty sure is longer than the Internet has existed, but it's dead, Jim. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that's ever purchased anything from me in the past. Many of the people that read this blog are former customers, and I am profoundly grateful for your friendship and patronage.
I have four tables left over, including one Evangeline Table. If you check up at the logo at the top of the blog, they're listed on the navigation bar. Sorry about the pictures; they actually look a lot better than that. You can purchase the tables using your existing Amazon accounts to check out, using a buy now button at the bottom of the page. Shipping is free anywhere in the US, but when they're gone that's it. Many thanks, and Merry Christmas.
