       In five words ...We Have The Best Customers !!! Thanks for coming out to support us Friday and Saturday for the Soles4Souls charity event. Over 200 pair of shoes were collected and we are so very thankful. Can you imagine the look on someones face as they receive those shoes ? To help another human being is simply the best and what this time of year is all about to me. The best part about giving a gift for me is to see that persons reaction-I just LOVE that ! I wish I could see all 200.
   Thanks to Tarryn Feldman for jumping out there and being proactive for a great cause and organizing this event. She is young-she is a mover and shaker-she is going to make a great impact on this world in a wonderful way in her long life ! If you ever need an organizer or a sharp young lady to work with you let me know-she is FAB !

   Now let me share a little of our weekend in pictures.

Wendy Semple (massage therapist) and Cindy Smith (Executive Consultant for Rodan and Fields Dermatologists)
what wonderful ladies with great hearts and incredible energy

... a little bit of this and that

The handsome young man comes at a high price...hehe  just what you would expect a mom to say !

Glad we could be a part !
We will be accepting shoes through the end of the month at the stores if you would like to donate to Soles4Souls.
Happiest of Holidays to you and yours !

Tis the Season-Three French Hens Style

We kicked off the holiday season with our Open House on November 6th and then placed the cherry atop the proverbial Christmas cupcake with CHRISTMAS in the VILLAGE the two days following Thanksgiving ! Once again we were so blessed to have Santa Claus and his Elf to join us on Friday to greet the small and not so small alike. Everyone had the chance to tell the man in red all of there holiday wishes-even a few confessions of not being so nice. It was a fun filled two days of good food and even better fellowship with the greatest customers two gals could ever dream of. Here is a small peak at our spirit of Christmas-enjoy !

Guess who?

You guessed right...Santa and his helper elf  !  OR...My great business partner Debbie's husband as Santa and my husband as his Elf. Thanks so much to our guys for being such good sports and making our event so very special for all. It really is amazing how jolly we all become around guys in red and green suits-just look at Debbie and myself !

Our fabulous dealer Mary of OuiR22 explaining to Santa how she has been naughty and plans to remain that way--Santa has something special just for big girls like her-gonna have to get that Elf to tell me about that !

The front desk @Three French Hens being overseen by Robin Wilkes-a great dealer and even better friend,always helping out when needed and so passionate about our business-we are lucky! Have to be sure that Santa knows she has been a very good girl !!!

  Amy had her list too....

Tell us what you think about our Fish Net Tree???

May your holiday season be bright and filled with cherished memories-family and love !
( and some fun junkin-come see us soon )
   Merry Christmas
 Stacey and Debbie

I am back !!!

   Sometimes we have huge success junkin and others we just have to settle on smaller but still oh so cute discoveries. That is what I would call todays haul. For Debbie and I to go out "shopping" and return with only one truck full lets just say that is a light shopping day for us. BUT--we still had a blast as we always do-lusting over rusty stuff that we have to ask "what is it" and visiting with good friends that also have the same disease that we do. :>)
    Here is a little peak at our day.........

Ok--so please overlook my fashion fo-pa...
  that is me (Stacey) on the left cold and wet ! A white short jacket was all that I had in the truck and you know a girl has to do what a girl has to do. In the middle is one of our dear friends, Tawnya Norton. Tawnya has a booth in Three French Hens and also has an adorable little shop in Brentwood Tennessee called Cest Moi'. Go and visit her blog at She has a wonderful eye at buying new gift and blending it splendidly with vintage treasures. That is my fabulous partner Debbie on the far right. I guess it could be a full blown blizzard or hurricane and we would all still be out there weathering the elements if we thought there was a cute treasure/ piece of junk to be bought ! We always have a great time together and today was no different !
  I know -I know-you are probably thinking...get to the finds!

Here comes one of our favorite dealers-now wouldn't you just go nuts if you saw a truck loaded like that coming your way-oh my goodness I am getting excited all over again just looking at the pictures !

And here is yet another ! Andy is not only a dealer we love to buy from but also a great man-just a fine guy we are lucky to call a friend !

What a great set of lockers....tell Debbie to let me know WHY DIDN"T WE BUY THESE?!?!

Had to have this sweet little table-great size !

Shabby windows, legs and metal carts are always a must-they fly out of the stores.

Now will I explain you having --well I think I will refrain from saying that-she's a funny girl !

What has she spotted now? Better not be anymore....well you know !

You choose your adjective-I adore this old bread metal stand. This will be fabulous holding linens in the store but a person could use this piece for so many different things, a laundry room, studio holding ones supplies, a childs room for toys etc etc- Oh am I a happy girl !!!
That is just a sneak peak-saved several of the best that are now in the stores. You will just have to come and see for yourself.
Speaking of coming out -I suggest FRIDAY -NOVEMBER 26th.
That begins CHRISTMAS in the VILLAGE in the historic district of Nolensville Tennessee. All of the merchants will be serving refreshments-having store specials and you will most likely spot Ole Saint Nick visiting around the village. Bring the family-bring your camera-bring an appetite and cash /card would be handy too as there will be treasures you will not be able to live without.
At Three French Hens and The Roost we will have a free gift to give to the first 20 customers in each store on Friday. You will also find additional sales on both Friday and Saturday. Mention you read this blog and receive and additional 10% off any one item. Santa Claus and his handy helper The Elf will be visiting The Roost On Friday from 11-4. Bring your own camera and avoid those long mall lines-having your precious children visit Santa. We will have a sweet back drop set up for pictures. Our customers LOVED it last year. It is a wonderful season in our quaint little town-may we invite you and your family and friends to come and enjoy CHRISTMAS in the VILLAGE

Want to come along ?

  My business partner Debbie and I are heading out to buy from some of our favorite dealers at the flea market so I thought it might be fun to give you a sneak peak and take you along so here goes......
Be sure and come back in a few hours because not only will you get the first look at what is coming in to Three French Hens and The Roost I will also be posting all about our Black Friday specials and Christmas in the Village in Nolensville that begins on Friday ! Stay tuned.........

What are you most THANKFUL for in this season of Thanksgiving???

Thanksgiving has taken on a much deeper meaning for me in the last 19 months. I never dreamed of being a small business owner much less the owner of TWO business'. God has a path for each and every person, I firmly believe this. When we let go and allow God to lead us the magic of our destiny is an amazing adventure.
    Twenty eight years ago as I graduated from high school my destiny was set- I was a licensed hairstylist and that is what I would be as I grew up ! was for a while--then would follow a stint in retail, merchandising, teaching , management, motherhood and many other opportunities along lifes road. Soemthing I have come to realize, they all had one common denominator-CREATIVITY !
   That is what I am most thankful for ! God has given me a gift of the ability to create and I am so humbled and thankful not only for the gift but also for the ability to express that I have it. It has taken me 28 years to do so and to be comfortable in saying so. During this season of Thanksgiving celebrate who you are and the gifts that are within. My life is so very blessed having a family that supports me 100% in my business and having a business partner that is also my bff and incredibly creative and talented herself. Life has aligned itself so perfectly and this girl could not be more thankful and appreciative.
   Enjoy a little of THREE FRENCH HENS celebrating the season of Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends !

What makes your heart flutter?

One of the greatest joys of owning two antique and gift stores is the treasure hunt ! When pursuing the hunt you never know how things are going to go. I find myself thinking back to when I was a little girl fishing with my dad. One thing that has always been the same since I was born - I love to talk-love to communicate. My dad would often have to say--shhhhh Stacey-be quiet and patient and the catch will come to you. Sometimes we caught allot and sometimes we caught few but we almost ALWAYS caught something. Treasure hunting is so the same. The curiousity always builds such excitement within me-will I find lots or will I find few??? Oh my gosh has this last week and a half been THE BIG CATCH! It has been a blast ! From a couple of great estate sales to an auction that simply left me squealing I have so remembered how fun it was to be that little girl that came home with a stringer full of a big catch...I just love my life-my dad would be proud even though I still can't be quiet ! :>)
The cream of this current crop is a gorgeous set of French Empire bedroom furniture ! (even though I must admit my secret-the old fish stringer loaded with old rusty keys made my heart flutter the very most )
So do share...what are your favorite finds of late-what makes your heart flutter?
Come out to the Hen House and Roost and check out the recent finds-you will not be disappointed !

Visions of the beach cottage......

 A girl can dream.....

         If you listen close
 you can hear those waves
                   crashing into the shore              
Do you smell the salt in the air?

I see the sunset of fiery hues...

                                                                                                   tastes of fresh seafood-simplicity of family together with no schedule

                                                                                                        flicker of fun memories

relaxing in beach cottage bliss

                                                                         CHEERS to the memories-
 trips do not always have to be literal-
 hope you enjoyed it as much as I did !
