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.


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.


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.



All of their consignment merchandise is photographed and put on their website, therefore, allowing you to browse from the comfort of your home.  If you see something that catches your attention, just give them a call at 855-875-7292.



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.


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.



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



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


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.



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!!


So, now that I have given you the tools for easier bargain hunting from your home, you will be able to find that special one of a kind item…the one that you have been looking for all along.

Say it isn’t so…another season is coming to an end for the Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market.  Tuesday, 10/23, is the last of the 2012 season.  But, not so fast…a Holiday Market; not to be missed, is around the corner.  It will be on Saturday, November 24th from Noon until 3:00 p.m., at Grove Park, behind the Rehoboth Beach Visitor’s Center.


The Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market is a great way to support our local farmers.  Residents and visitors alike have been attending the market on Tuesdays throughout the summer.  Some visitors come in bikes; others drive…and plenty of visitors just walk with shopping bags in hand.  Website?

Tuesday promises to be another gorgeous day in Rehoboth Beach.  Just like it was last week.  The white tents will be up again and you will find fall veggies and plenty more!!


Some of the vendors are restaurants and bake shops, as well.

For example.  Meet Yolanda.  She will probably be there tomorrow too.


She is the owner of Mariachi Restaurant, located at 14 Wilmington Ave.  Website?  You can find them on Facebook and Twitter, as well.



Mariachi is known for its Spanish and Mexican cuisine.  Last week Yolanda had Papusas.  These are handmade stuffed corn tortillas, which originated in Salvador but are also well known in Honduras.


She also had veggies and rice and beans and plantains.


I have to tell you that, I think it was at the beginning of the summer when we visited Mariachi.  Upon mentioning that my husband had to eat gluten free, the chef came out to talk to us. He was very knowledgeable and directed us to the right dishes.  We much appreciated this gesture.

Masitas de Puerco – Cuban style morsels of pork marinated in a criolla sauce and roasted Sevilla’s bitter oranges.


A Lomo Saltado – Sauteed strips of prime sirloin with fresh tomatoes, cilantro, red onions and green peppers on a special Peruvian sauce.


I am sure Debbie, from Cake Break, will be there too!!  She is located at 7 South First Street in downtown Rehoboth Beach.  Website?  You can find them on Facebook as CakeBreakRehoboth and on Twitter as CakeBreakRB.


Cake Break is a gourmet cupcake company.  Their facility is peanut free.  They also have gluten free and vegan cupcakes.  I was telling Debbie that I love the density of her cupcakes.  I don’t want to bite into air.  They are excellent.


I am sure that she will have an assortment of them, just like she did last week, when I ate 2 of them; The Salty Dawg on the left had yellow cake with caramel frosting.  The Chocolate Overload on the right had chocolate chip cupcake dunked in ganache, filled and topped with chocolate icing and chocolate shavings.


New from Cake Break!  They are shipping gluten free products.


Greenbranch Organic Farm, located in Salisbury, Maryland, had the prettiest radishes.  This farm is already taking orders for Thanksgiving Turkeys.  Their turkeys are raised on their farm where they have access to grass, clover, bugs and sunshine!!  Tel. 443-736-7779.  Website?



Soooo…if you are in Downtown Rehoboth Beach on Tuesday, remember the market is open from Noon until 3 p.m.  Have a good one!!

Ocean City, Maryland, Event, Ward World Championship, Wildfowl Carving Competition and Art Festival 4/23/10-4/25/10



If there is an event that really sets Spring in our beaches is the Wildfowl Carving Competition and Art Festival.   This is the 40th anniversary for this premier wildfowl carving competition for the most prestigious awards in wildfowl art.

Visitors from all over the world will enjoy the judging, auctions, seminars and demonstrations.  Children activities are included.  There will be about 100 exhibitor booths and supplies for this art craft. 

The venue will be the Ocean City Convention Center located on 4001 Coastal Hwy. in Ocean City, Maryland.  Tel. 410-742-4988.  Friday 10 to 5 p.m., Saturday, 9 to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 to 4 p.m.  There will be an admission fee.

The carved bird decoy is the only truly American folk art.  Decoys have been an aid to hunters and were devised by the American Indian.  They are floating lures that ride at anchor.  The shorebird was called a “stickup” because they were mounted on sticks and set in the ground at the shore.

Of all the folk arts none is more strikingly American than the decoy.  It is definitely, indigineous to this country, popular in use and  created out of native woods.

Europe learned about decoys from America.

Two of our Eastern Shore most renowned carvers of their times were the Ward Brothers, Stephen and Lemuel of Chrisfield, Maryland.  They created waterfowl decoys and decorative bird carvings that established and maintained a unique standard of realism and artistic impression.

The Ward Brothers made hunting decoys until about the 1950’s.  Then the introduction of plastics surfaced and they switched to the production of miniature and life-sized decorative birds.

The Ward Museum is located at 909 South Schumaker Drive, Salisbury, Maryland, 21804.  Tel 410-742-4988.  Website is   This museum is dedicated to exibiting, collecting and promoting wildfowl art, and interpreting their significance through educational programs and publications.  They preserve the legacy of the Ward Brothers.

Please check their website because they hold events and exhibits year-round.

When my kids were young, they had a teacher that instilled in them the love for birds.  Her name was Mrs. Bunting.  My kids and anyone that was fortunate to be in her class would walk around with a bird book.  I have pictures of going to the Ward Museum to enjoy everything they offered.  I even have a picture of my oldest son holding a real Screech Owl; I don’t think he would want the picture published; sorry, I will leave it in the album.


Talk to you later….Have a good one!!  It is gorgeous outside.
