this Sunday 22nd December

11am - 4pm
this is happening at our house in North Providence, RI.
park along the street - we live in an old white farmhouse with
a white picket fence along the street. please park along the
fence on the street and either come in the front door or
the side door down our driveway. please respect our
neighbors and don't block any driveways or cars in.
when using GPS etc. be sure to include N. Providence in
your search, as there are two # 437 Angell Roads on our road
and you want the N. Prov one and NOT the Lincoln one.
since closing our final retail location in 2017 we've been
busy building up an extensive inventory of records, vintage and
antique goods. we're very much still at it, but we miss seeing
our customers in person, so we've decided to open up our
home for one day only - this Sunday 22nd December.
we appreciate your support for all these years.
and just like the old days at our shop, this event is
sponsored by our friends at Narragansett Beer so you
can have a tallboy and shop at the same time! we'll also
have snacks and other refreshements.
and we'll also have our piano and an acoustic guitar
available for anyone wanting to play a holiday song or two!
we started What Cheer in 1998 with a booth at the now
defunct legendary This & That Shoppe on Wickenden Street
and saved all our profits to open our own retail shop, which we
did the following year in November 1999 in a small Hobbit Hole
of a space in Wayland Square (now paved over and a bank)
until losing that space after nearly 14 years. we then relocated
to the corner of Angell and Thayer Street but closed there due to
landlord / lease issues. while it was sad to leave retail behind,
the timing was right -- retail traffic on Thayer (and elsewhere)
had slowed, and at the same time costs had risen, so we
turned to the internet to keep our business alive. both of us
have also have had serious health issues since closing the shop
so having the tie and flexibility to work from home
has been a savior to us.
for this event we'll have our entire online inventory
of records, CDs, tapes and other music items available for
perusal and purchase -- at 21% OFF this Sunday only! we'll also
have several 'greatest hits' from our retail shop days there and
on sale, including our huge selection of Christmas / Holiday
records, CDs and cassettes, cards & decorations.
we'll also have a stash of Edward Gorey prints,
trading cards, vintage clothing & accessories,
magazines, postcards, trading cards, etc.
and What Cheer's own Jennifer Daltry recently
created 31 original illustrations / drawings as part of
something called 'Inktober' where artists around the
world all worked to create a drawing a way for
a month. she'll have them all available for
just $100 each this weekend.
Jennifer's Inktober pieces can all be seen here
and if you'd like to purchase any of the unsold pieces
but aren't local they can be shipped anywhere
in the world with shipping charges added.
artwork by Jennifer Daltry will not be part of the sale.
cash preferred, but credit cards will also be accepted
