Weekend at Nana's Attic Blog is CLOSED !

Farewell from Weekends at Nana's Attic
2014 ...brings a sad note to this blog...Shara and Dev have decided to close the store.
Times are hard for folks selling  crafts, antiques and art in our store and small businesses here in California are being hit the hardest.
It has been fun having the blog here for you to read and visit. And  being linked to Sandra of Babycakes Doodles & Designs has been a honor.

Happy New Year to All and God Bless !

Growing Pains And (potential) Stardom

Hello, my friends! 

Long time no blog! Just a quick note to update some changes happening at Nana's! Change is the nature of any business, especially in today's capricious economy. The good news is this: we are going to be open MORE! Woo Hoo! 

New Hours! 

Beginning June 20 we will be open EVERY weekend! Thursday thru Saturday we will be open 10am-5pm, and Sunday's Noon-4pm. 

The most frequently asked question we kept hearing was "Why are you only open ONE weekend a month?" Mom and I had designed our concept around a few other crafty businesses that have limited openings and huge followings. There was just one thing missing....the huge following! While community support and excitement greet us at every turn, we were just having a hard time drawing in the crowds to the store itself. To eliminate confusion and gain some momentum, we are listening to the folks who have been gracious enough to come to the store to check us out and shop...we're gonna be thee a bit more! 

A star is born?

Mom and I are thrilled to announce we will be on local channel 31 tomorrow morning to do a segment for Goodday Sacramento's weekend edition. Alan Sanchez will be out to chat with us about the business and will feature us sometime during the 8am hour! I have to thank my dear friend Rhonda Martinez for hooking us up. I am designing my "marketing strategies" (oooohhh, I sound SO legit!) to include LOTS of social media, like Facebook & Pinterest....I never in a MILLION years dreamt we'd be featured on TV. SCORE one for the Nana's team! So check us out bright and early tomorrow morning! 

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Dad's Day to the important fathers and father figures out there! Take a moment to thank him for all he does, whether he be your dad, your grandfather, an uncle, or anyone who has realy stepped up to the plate for you. I am lucky to have the absolute BESTEST dad in the world, however, jus' sayin'.... ♥

Vendor Meeting

We are hosting our very first vendor information meeting on Tuesday, June 20 at 6pm at the store. All current vendors and possible additions are welcome to come check us out. We will be discussing hours, fees, spaces, etc etc etc....looking forward to seeing everyone! We have at least three new vendors as of today, and I hope to add more to the fam bam Tuesday! That means more WOW, more FABULOUS, and more SHOPPING! 

Stay Tuned....

We are planning an exciting series of classes, events and all around fun at Weekends At Nana's Attic. Keep checking back to the blog, or visit our Facebook page.

Nana's Debut Weekend

We have survived opening night! It came and went so quickly, as most happy occasions seem to do. Mom and I want to thank each and every one of our first-night customers....our friends, family and our wonderful shoppers! It truly was a magical night. Here are a few snapshots from our evening.....more to come! A special thanks to Sandra for taking all of these pictures. These memories will last a lifetime. 

Smooches...Shara xoxo

So I think I am finally beginning to understand the term "opening night jitters." Our big night is only a little over a week away and we still have much to do! I am excited/nervous/excited/ get the idea! 

Mom and I are still getting our own items created to add to our place, we are busily creating and tweaking our displays, and we are still welcoming crafters! We recently welcomed Anabelle Cerdas-Chi of Tuanis Craft into Nana's. She is a fabulously talented weaver who creates the most UH-Mazing things on a loom and by hand. Her hand-crafted purses, rugs, scarves, wraps, tunics (and so many more beautiful items!) are coming to OUR STORE! Oh. Em. GEE. This lady has TALENT! 

In addition to the exciting first stages of the new store, we have also been invited to co-host a fundraiser for American Heart Association Heart Walk and American Cancer Society - Relay for Life! "Hearts of Moms" is going to be a dazzling event showcasing some of the area's finest talent for a women's shopping night. Benefiting Team Kailani (aka Kiki), a team created by my dear friend Mercy Stewart to support her daughter's struggles with heart disease, this event isn't to be missed. This evening is open to moms, daughters, grandmas, aunts, cousins, girlfriends...not just a "moms night out" kids are invited, too! There will be food and beverages, raffles and of course SHOPPING! Tickets are available for only a $5 donation!!! 

Here is a little information about the event and about darling Kiki: 
I will be down at the store tomorrow and hope to add some new pictures to share our progress. Thank you to all of you who are tracking our progress and as anxious for opening weekend as we are! Smooches ~Shara
