DEBBEE THIBAULT’S COLLECTIBLES

Debbee Thibault announced her retirement on December 31, 2013.  We have carried Debbee’s American Collectibles right from the beginning back in 1997.  She became a friend to us immediately.  Her precious creations will become more and more collectible with time.  We have a small handful of her pieces still available, but are selling very quickly.  Please give Sharon a call at 925-485-1577, if you would like to add one of Debbee’s creations to your collection.  Sharon will answer your questions regarding these wonderful pieces and their availability.

DISNEY PIN TRADING NIGHT AT AMERICAN HARVEST

You probably already know that Sharon and I love Disneyland.  We having been trading pins at the park for several years now.  We also sell Disney trading pins at our shop in Pleasanton, CA.  Last Friday night we hosted a pin trading event.  We also had a drawing for some nice Disney pins.  It was really fun to see our customers trade their pins with other customers and with us as well.  What we liked the most though was that families came together to trade pins.  It was a multi-generational event!

Here are just a few pictures of those that attended this great event.

CARS LAND IN CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE

Have you been to the new and improved California Adventure yet? Why are you waiting? Sharon and I were there shortly after Cars Land made its debut back in July 2012. CA Adventure is awesome! Don’t delay, get yourself over there now!

Here’s the main entrance to Cars Land…stop by and get your picture taken in front of the billboard.

Looking down the street toward Radiator Springs.

Second entrance into Cars Land.

Everyone LOVES the racers…be prepared for a very long wait.

Here’s a picture of Sharon “driving” our race car.  Our friends Bonnie and Roger are “back seat drivers”.  I’m riding shot gun!  That’s right….we won our race!

The Disney characters in CA Adventure are dressed in 1930’s attire.  Here’s Mickey walking a pretty little girl across the street.

Minnie can be found as a flight attendant in Condor Flats!

The Red Car Trolley on Buena Vista Street.

Many of the signs in Cars Land are a little quirky.

While waiting in line for the racers, you walk through a few buildings with nice signs, gas pumps and oil bottles.  The R&S represents Radiator Springs, but I think that it really stands for Rodger and Sharon.

My friend, Roger, thought these flowers were great.  They are made from tail lights.

This is one of my favorite photos….Sharon dazzling the local CA Adventure officer on Buena Vista Street.

You really need to get over to CA Adventure right now!  Don;t forget to see Cars Land at night with the great neon lights!  I’ll post pictures of the lights another time.  Honestly, my photos of the neon lights are only okay…you need to see it in person!
