Although small geographically, New Hampshire is fertile ground for the architects, designers and builders working here. Our annual Design Awards celebrate and recognize this talented community.
Treasures Antiques, Collectables & MORE will be the place to be on the weekend of May 6 & 7, as preparations for their annual Kitty Angels Fundraiser and adoption days are heating up. This event, their 23rd, continues to grow and will run both days from 9AM to 5PM rain or shine. Treasures is located at 106 Ponemah Road in Amherst, NH.
Kitty Angels, Inc., a no-kill cat shelter, has been the beneficiary of these awesome events at Treasures, not only gaining much needed funds but getting quite a number of the countless felines in their care, adopted into loving “forever homes.” Kitty Angels, Inc. itself, is made up of only unpaid volunteers and is dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned cats, furnishing them with treatment for injuries or other health issues and then placing them into these “forever homes” with compatible owners. They are a non-profit, charitable corporation where all donations are fully tax-deductible and every penny of every donation is used in the caring of cats. (View their website at: www.kittyangels.org).
The 2016 event had over 100 amazing vendors who filled the grounds surrounding Treasures in an entertaining crafts, flea market, yard sale and county-fair type atmosphere complete with live entertainment. Members of the Amherst Animal Hospital will be on hand to answer questions about cats or any other animal. ‘The New England Brethren of Pirates,’ a reenactment and improve troupe, will be back, entertaining guests as characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, selling hand-made and pirate themed wares and playing fun, pirate themed games with children. Musical Entertainment will be provided by the band, “Back to the Garden” and local folk music icon, Derek Fimbel
Nevajans’ Farm will set up a petting zoo, suitable for all ages.
In addition to those “attractions” other vendors should include Cindia Jackson’s Fine Air-Roasted Coffee, Sillie Puffs, Royal Towne Fudge, Jake’s Ice Cream and Joni’s Cannolis, along with several other natural product food vendors. Moreover, other skilled artisans and crafters and businesses that will include Luv Me Knots Blankets and Toys, Damsel in Defense, with others being added.
Along with the various “yard sale” items, you were guaranteed to uncover a bargain for yourself, your pet, your home, or your garden sanctuary including pet supplies, jewelry, honey, jams, syrups, candles, soap, florals, sports, clothing, minerals, fossils, crystals and much, much more.
We will run an electrifying raffle, of numerous and diverse prizes featured throughout the fundraising weekend and into the month of June. The raffle has always been a successful draw in raising added funds for this event. All prizes are generously donated by local and national businesses.
This annual fundraising event for “Kitty Angels, Inc.” is the “pet” charity of Treasures’ owners, Rick & Sherry Tobin. To date, their fundraising efforts have far exceeded $70,000.
If you’d like to make a donation through Treasures, but can’t come to the event that weekend, you may send a check or money order to Kitty Angels and just note Treasures in the subject line. The address can be found on our website. If you can’t make a monetary donation at this time, but would like to help, material donations will be happily accepted, such as postage stamps, cat food (both dry and canned), kitty litter (non-scoopable preferred, but any litter is good litter), medical supplies, bedding (clean towels, blankets, quilts, clean denim and corduroy, quilted bedspreads), carriers, cleaning supplies including bleach, laundry detergent and paper towels, photocopy paper, cat toys and cat furniture as well as trash bags. You don’t have to wait for this event to drop off any donations for ‘Kitty Angels.’ You can do that by making an appointment in advance with the owners, any time the store is open, which is 10AM to 5PM daily. Special thanks go to Clark & Leighton, P.C. Dentistry, who were kind enough to donate their land to help us out for this event.
This popular and much sought after annual fundraising event will not only benefit the kitties, but will provide you with fun, bargains, food, ideas and knowledge. You PAWSITIVELY have to attend. Hopefully, you can adopt a new, life-long, forever-friend as well.
There is still space available if you are interested in being a vendor for the event? A flat donation fee of $30.00 is all you need for an outdoor space, and will cover both of the days! Contact Sherry at (603) 672-2535. Visit the website at www.TreasuresNH.com.
