Happy Thanksgiving and prepping for shopping

Celebrate with Gratitude

We first want to say how thankful we are for each and every person who has stepped into our store of collections! George – the ‘collector of collections’ – loves sharing his many finds and all the stories that go with them. We wish everyone a Thanksgiving filled with peace, love, and gratitude for all that we have. Remember, it’s not about quantity, but quality. Well, except for George – the collector! (chuckle)

It’s been George’s tradition to decorate the weekend following Thanksgiving. But this year, the hundreds of dolls he acquired meant that he had to move a lot of things around ASAP!!! So the windows are decorated a couple of days early – yes, thanks, Barbara. And Christmas can be spotted throughout the store.

So stopping by Bahoukas might just be worth your while. The dolls in the window are beautiful. The hundreds in our store – well, come see them. Check out the braid on this Barbie! WOW!

You won’t believe the dolls and doll furniture available. From tiny porcelain dolls to 2 ft + Barbies, baby dolls, and American Girl Dolls are just a few of the many waiting for someone to give them some love. Seriously, stop by and pick one (please). They are priced for the collector and to purchase for a special child in your life. Definitely something for everyone.

Add to this a wonderful selection of furnishings and accessories for your dolls that include well-made high chairs, table, rocking cradles, cribs, chairs, and more. Seriously this is one special collection.

Take a Break for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

On this special day of the year, Americans celebrate:

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgivingcelebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.  from History.com

Here, at Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum, we want to first wish each and every one of you a heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving. We also want to remind you to take a moment to truly be thankful for all that you have… love, family, friends, food and shelter. At the same time, take a moment to reach out to another who may not be as fortunate.

Most of all, take time to breathe: breathe in the wonderful aromas of the season, breathe and smile for those you share it with, breathe and let go of all that feels like a burden, breathe… relax … give thanks.
