Three French Hens and The Roost closed Sunday April 2nd

     Today is a day of mourning of one of our dear friends and dealers BARBARA WELLS.
     Both Three French Hens and The Roost will be closed to honor our very special friend.
       She brightened our lives with her contagious smile-her abounding energy and her positive attitude.
She and her husband Dan, both in their 70s were ALWAYS the first out to volunteer their time helping to do anything needed to make our stores the best they could be. As two of the first dealers to secure space when we first opened our doors they were always lending a helping hand. I can hear Barbara saying now-"that is what God would want me to do and I am not taking any money for it either"! She was one of God's most beautiful treasures -no question about that. We have countless memories that we will treasure forever. The concrete one that will remain in the store is a sign Barbara had hanging in their booth that reads..."This is not a museum-this junk is for sale". The chuckles that has brought to so many customers will continue to do so as long as we are open. It is a priceless reminder that we will treasure of our sweet Barbara and her sense of humor and life. She was truly one of a kind. Barbara loved life-adored her daughter Renee and her grand kittys and her husband Dan-he was simply everything to her. Their love for each other was so visible is was contagious. Barbara was a people person, a riot to be around. She loved her yard -it was impecable ! And did I mention she was probably 90 lbs soaking wet ! She made us much younger girls look like we were sitting still with her energy and get it done attitude. I know I personally am a much better person because Barbara Wells is my friend and I had the blessing of knowing and loving her .
     Please extend prayers to her husband Dan and her daughter Renee as their hearts heal until the reunite again .
