DE-Feet Breast Cancer Run/Walk 2014, Sunday, May 18th, Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Tanger Outlets, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Fundraising at the Delaware Beaches

dscn9729

Location, location, location….Tanger Outlets….open so early on Sunday a.m.?  Seaside Outlet Drive in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware was so crowded.  It was an event that is so dear to many residents and visitors.  Racing or walking for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.  In its 5th year, it brought record crowds.  The host?  Tanger Outlets.

dscn9732

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition …”It is the only organization in the state of Delaware focused solely on breast health issues as they afflict the women and men who live here.”  To know more about this organization, please visit http://www.debreastcancer.org.

dscn9736

DE-feet Breast Cancer 5K Run? Walk is an event for all ages.  Participants can choose to take part in a timed 5K Run, a 5K Walk, or a 1-Mile Fun Walk.  It is held rain or shine.  Some came in teams and others just hugged as they considered themselves survivors!

dscn9734

All proceeds benefit the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s programs that increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms, and provide support and resources to men and women in our local community who are newly diagnosed or facing recurrence of breast cancer.

They were ready….the music was getting all in attendance pumped.

dscn9746

Then I saw the object flying over my head; don’t think a lot of people noticed….a drone, handled by a gentlemen who was volunteering for the event.  Up to the minute images would be captured.

dscn9743

dscn9744

The food tent was getting ready for a huge post race party with beer and wine garden, and a coffee bar.

dscn9737

dscn9738

DE-Feet Breast Cancer Run/Walk will be back next year.  The Delaware Beaches is a great place to fundraise….it is a destination!

Have a great day!

Love It When My Dentists Send Me Flowers!! Maplewood Dental Associates, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn8575

My dentists sent me flowers and they are gorgeous!!  Don’t you get them from your dentists, as well?

Well, my relationship with my dentists go way back.  It does help too that for the past few years it happens that my regularly scheduled appointments fall just a few days before my birthday.  And no, I don’t do it on purpose.  I usually go all out and announce my special date to the everyone in the office.  I think a budget has been set up for my flowers.

Except this year it was one of those birthdays you don’t want to broadcast.  It was a big one…..nevertheless Renee, Steve, Bruce, and the whole staff of Maplewood Dental Associates sent me such beautiful flowers.  When you open my front door this is what you see.

dscn8578

I love going to the dentist.  That’s right.  I feel totally comfortable.  I can even fall asleep.  No fear like the majority of other people that just the thought of going to the dentist send chills through them.  My father was a dentist so that probably helped too.

I can fully recommend Maplewood Dental Associates because they have always been so professional with my dental care all these years.  They did also take care of my late husband, John, as well.

Maplewood is located at 18913 John J. Williams Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  Tel. 302-645-6671.  Website?  http://www.rehobothbeachsmiles.com You can also find them on Facebook.

If you decide to make an appt. and become a patient…..don’t take it for granted that you will be getting flowers. Just be happy that you found someone that will take care of your beautiful smile.

Thanks Maplewood Dental, you deserved to be my post.

Rare Disease Day, February 28, 2014, Awareness-Raising Event, Internationally, Nationally..CARE-Join Together for Better Care

dscn8102

First time I heard about this was just today…Did you know about it?  We hear so much about any other days but this one is probably so important to those jumping hoops to continue with their healthcare.  My heart goes out to them.

Rare Disease is also known as Orphan Disease and is any disease that affects a small percentage of the population.

The Day was first launched in Europe in 2008 and in 2013 over 70 countries participated in raising awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about the impact on patients’ lives these rare diseases cause.  Every day is a struggle.

To read more about it, please visit http://www.rarediseaseday.org.

Have a nice day!!

dscn8164dscn8209

Another person’s “garbage” may be another person’s “gold”.  That’s what’s been happening at Delmarva Furniture Consignment.  This consignment shop opened on December 26, 2013 and already a 3,000 sq.ft addition is in place.  That’s how popular it has been.  It is located at 11212 Trussum Pond Rd., Laurel, DE 19956.  It is really next to Johnny Janosik’s Distribution Center on Rt. 13.  From Rehoboth Beach just take Rt. 24 through Millsboro, cross Rt. 113 and continue to Rt. 13.  Turn left and you will see shortly on the left hand side of the road.  Tel. 855-875-7292.

All the photos on this post were taken on Saturday, February 22nd.  So as you can imagine items don’t stay long in consigment stores.  Selling your items with Delmarva Furniture Consignment is very easy.  You can do everything from the comfort of your home, just like my friend, Paula, did.  I just jumped in her truck to check it out.  So glad I did in order to pass on the info.

dscn8207dscn8203

To consign all you have to do is visit their website above mentioned, then click on “Sell Your Furniture”.  Fill out the consignment request form and attach your photos.  Sending them the photos will make the process so much easier.  At times these stores get too much of one item so they might tell you to wait until what’s in the store sells.  They will give you a 120 day consignment contract with 50/50 terms.

dscn8187dscn8188

You might choose to bring your items for their approval.  This is done by appointment only.  They can preview products on Thursdays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

dscn8170

dscn8200

Paula had done it all through their website.  Upon arrival we sat with Diane.  She is so friendly and will set the initial price with your approval and input.

dscn8204

The photos show how good the furniture looks.  They accept home decor items, area rugs, pool tables, game tables, exercise equipment, antique, mid-century modern items and all should be gently used, in good shape, stain and oder free, without animal hair, rips and tears.  They also need to have all major hardware, functional parts and frames.  They will dust but they are not in the business of refinishing your items.

dscn8190

dscn8199

They do not accept cribs, lamps without shades, or water beds.

dscn8186

dscn8178

Delmarva Furniture Consingnment offers pick-up for a fee.  The fee is not paid until your merchandise is sold.  It will come out of your consingnment commission check.  This fee is not charged if your items do not sell. They can pick up one piece or a room full.  For info on their coverage map, please visit http://www.delmarvaconsignment.com.

dscn8174dscn8193

After 30 days, the item will be 15% off initial selling price, after 60 days, 40% off and after 90 days, 50% off initial selling price.  Should your items not sell during the 120 days contract, they will call and ask you to pick up your merchandise.  Items that are not picked up within 7 days will be sold at no commission or donated to charity.

dscn8206

dscn8211

For example, on my photo I am showing the cutest accent chair.  The starting price was $175 as of this week-end.  On March 22nd it will be reduced to $148.75.  On April 21st the next price reduction will be $105.00 and the last reduction on this piece will take place of May 21st with a final price of $87.50.  What a deal!!

NEST, Historic Berlin, Maryland, Home Decor, Accessories, Furniture, Gifts, Shop Small, Shop Local, Berlin’s 2nd Friday Art Stroll, December 13th, Worcester County

dscn6703

For me, shopping small and local has always been something that I have enjoyed.  I have plenty of friends that love going “mall” shopping….not for me.  I like that up close and personal kind of service.  Which brings me to NEST, located at 11 South Main Street in Historic Berlin, Maryland.  Tel. 410-629-1030.

Driving to Berlin from Rehoboth Beach, takes about half hour.  No big deal, it is the Second Season so there is no traffic.  Strolling a historic town, checking what’s new during the holidays is pretty nice, so Jody and I did just that.

I think Petey is really the Mayor of Historic Berlin.  He is such a hard working little dog.  I have featured him before and once again here he is…..greeting the customers and making sure that Dee gets up and gives us that personal attention we were looking for.  Now, you tell me…where would you find something like this in a “mall”?  You gotta love it!!

dscn6700

Dee has been quilting.  Her remnants have become quilts.  The reverse of the quilts is soft and warm.

dscn6701

dscn6695

Dee calls her handmade handbags Boppyowl.  She offers 2 sizes and they are made with beautiful rich fabrics, lined with contrasting colors.

dscn6692dscn6693

NEST is an eclectic and funky shop.  Every time you shop, there are surprises; local artwork, jewelry, home accessories.  At this time of the year the shop is fully stock.  Berlin’s 2nd Friday Art Stroll will be on Friday, 12/14, so make sure you make NEST one of your stops.

dscn6698

dscn6699

NEST carries unwined candles from Unwined Candle Co., located in Sykesville, Maryland….from recycled wine bottles.

dscn6696

NEST opens year-round.  Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Sunday from 12 until 4 p.m.  You can find NEST on Facebook, as well.

Merry Christmas!!

Good Earth Market Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Fresh Produce, Baked Goods, Gluten Free, Vegan, Organic, Gem Java Coffee Bar Open 7 a.m. – Noon!! Events, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

dscn5916

From time to time I would stop by Good Earth Market in Clarksville, Delaware.  When writing a post I would always say that it was about 4 miles west of Bethany Beach.  I am happy to say now that Good Earth Market Rehoboth Beach is pretty much around the corner from my house.  The new market opened this summer to great expectations from the community.  It has not disappointed.  It is fully stocked.  Location?  38131 Terrace Rd., Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, 19971.  Tel. 302-226-3276  On Facebook, find it under Good Earth Market Rehoboth Beach.

dscn5921

The owners are Susan and David Ryan.  They can be found mostly at the Clarksville Market.  In Rehoboth Beach, Annette is their Manager.  Good Earth Market is bringing to the community healthy foods.  Our health is something not to be compromised.  Eating well is part of the solution to many health problems.

dscn5915

And for all of you locals, the location is on the Forgotten Mile; that stretch of Highway 1 (Coastal Highway) between Bayard Ave. Traffic Light in Dewey and the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal Bridge.  Now you know…

dscn5938

Gem Java Coffee Bar inside the Market opens at 7 a.m. until Noon.  At present, coffee and fresh muffins are served.  The menu might be expanding later on.  There are plenty of tables and chairs, besides the bar, to sit and gather with friends.  It can sit about 25 people.  Have it in mind if you need to have a meeting or just a fun gathering.  Annette is the Manager and you can call her at 302-226-3276.

The sign of a good Manager is the knowledge of his or her products offered.  Annette was great and it was so nice meeting her.  She was enthusiastic about the Market and gave me a tour showing that this Market is a must stop shop in Rehoboth Beach when looking for fresh, healthy, gluten free, vegan goods and home and wellness products, as well.

dscn5918

Gluten Free!! For years I have kept a gluten free kitchen in my home.  The shops at the Delaware Beaches have all been pretty good in keeping up with a demand for gluten free products.  Good Earth Market in Rehoboth Beach has so many products.  If you are looking for gluten free, please stop by.

A freezer is always filled to capacity.

dscn5935dscn5936

That was just the frozen foods…throughout the store you will find many other products like flours, cereals, chips, sauces, etc. etc. that will make cooking gluten free so much easier.

dscn5940

Paleo Bread is an allergy friendly bread that, at times, is hard to get.  It is gluten free, grain free, and low calorie, as well.  They have it in the frozen section at Good Earth, but if you want to know more about it, please visit http://www.paleobread.com.

dscn5929

Frozen meats…turkey, bison, etc. free of any chemicals and dyes.

dscn5928

The Birch Tree Cafe is the only 100% gluten free restaurant in Southern Delaware.  It is located at the Clarksville location, but on a daily basis salads, breads and other great foods come to the Rehoboth Beach.  You just have to stop by and check it out, or request a favortie…they’ll bring it to you.

dscn5933

Raw Cheese is also hard to find….ask Annette; they have it.

dscn5934

Jams and Coconut Sugars!!

dscn5924

dscn5922

The Iced Coffee on this photo, has been a hit, flying out of the store as soon as it gets in.

dscn5932

Wellness for body, mind, and soul!!

dscn5920

And, plenty of products have a story behind it.  Driftwood Candles.  These candles are made my a woman that years ago became a young widow.  The first time you light your candle, it may extinguish itself before it reaches the wax…this is normal.  Just re-light until you get a steady burn!!

dscn5923
