That’s right! Mark your calendar right now to stop at TLC Vintage Collection Friday, November 21 from 10 am to 9 pm! This is our participation in Annie Sloan’s world-wide project by stockists. We have chosen the
Children’s Cancer Connection
of Des Moines as the charity we will work with, giving them 50 percent of the day’s revenues. Plus 100 percent of your purchases of the Children’s designed holiday cards will go to the connection. And that is not all! There is a

Silent Auction & Grand Prize Drawing for
$385 Value Basket of
Annie Sloan Products!!
Your name will be entered into the drawing if you either 1) donate a piece of d├ęcor or furniture painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan for the silent auction or 2) write a check on the 21st made out to the Children’s Cancer Connection for $30 or more!

Apply with a finger, brush or by making a glaze by adding a few drops of mineral spirits to a small quantity of gilding wax.
