Mother’s Day is the second most popular gift-giving day of the year! Fashion, coffee shop, and antique shop gifts and gift cards are among the most favorite Mother’s Day gifts women receive. The other three things high on that favorite list are cards, flowers, and going out to eat at a restaurant.
“Give it some thought,” one young wife said she told her husband when he told her she’s hard to buy for. “It doesn’t take much – a card, some flowers, and take me out to eat, and I’m happy,” she said.
Make Mother’s Day meaningful for someone. Know someone whose mother doesn’t live near or a mother whose children live afar? Take her to one of the antique shops in the high desert. Browsing the vendor shops can bring back wonderful memories.
There are several nice antique and gift shops to consider such as Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures and Antique Station out in Oro Grande and The Desert Cottage on Bear Valley Road in Hesperia.
Carriage House Antiques is having a spring sale Saturday, May 10th, 9:00 AM-6:00 PM. Take a pleasant stroll through the vendors’ shops while listening to the special music by Quiet Fire. Fun, food, giveaways and great prices are part of this antique shop’s spring sale day.
Mother’s Day can be filled with mixed emotions. It’s a day to honor our mothers. If you know someone feeling down, missing a mother, grandmother, aunt, child or other loved one, perhaps you can be that one to bring some cheer by going with them to an antique shop for tea and a cookie.
A smile, a thoughtful word, a card, or flowers will be appreciated. Make it a special day.
