Sad News from Nashville...

On Monday night, March 21, 2022, Wishful Thinking experienced a devastating fire in our shop. The contents and the building have been damaged or destroyed. The neighboring shop was also damaged.

Fortunately, no one was in the shop at the time and no one was hurt.  The nearby fire department, which is made up of volunteers, was at the fire department doing some maintenance. Had they not been there at the time, it would have been another 10 minutes before they would have arrived at the scene. The fire started on our porch; the fire inspector believes it was a discarded cigarette.

We want to keep you posted on our progress as we figure out our next steps.

Things we have done so far:

* We took down all our products from our online store since they were either destroyed or have smoke damage.

* In the next few days, we will begin to add new product to the online store as new goodies arrive at Marlene's home. We will not send you anything damaged in the fire!

* That being said, sometime in the future we will hold a Fire Sale for all the salvageable items. If you have been in our shop before, you'll remember that we had 2 rooms. The south room where we had our demo table, was heavily damaged by fire. The north room, where we had our cash register, experienced smoke and some water damage. We will keep you posted on a date and place once we figure that out.

* We are in the process of looking for a new home in Nashville. This is a bit of a challenge since retail space is limited and most available spaces are smaller than we'd like.

* We will continue to host our ATC swap! For those of you who've sent in their March ATCs, don't fret. I usually take them home to sort and distribute after hours. And we are so happy to note that our ATC collection at the shop survived the fire! You'll soon be able to view our 15+ year collection of our little masterpieces once again!

* Our July Used Stamp Sale is on hold for now.

* We don't have phone service at the shop, so please e-mail us at  You can mail us still as well since we have a PO Box.

Thank you to everyone for your kind support and much welcomed prayers!

New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...

We'll be posting new stuff sometime soon online! 

Get 'em While They're Hot - Fire Sale! 

While cleaning out the shop from the fire, we boxed up items that we felt were salvageable for resale.  While most of our merchandise and all of our furniture and fixtures were destroyed, some items that were stored in drawers or tucked between other items or packaged in sealed plastic bags survived the fire.  We will be setting up a small booth at the corner of Van Buren Street and Pittman House Lane (next to the Wise Woman Shoppe) May 20-22 for our Get 'em While They're Hot Fire Sale.  This is the same complex our shop was located, just on the other end of Pittman House Lane.  So, stop on over Friday and Saturday between 11-6 and on Sunday between 11-5 to find some amazing bargains!  Everything has been marked down at least 50% off.  This is a cash only sale with a no-return policy.  Please stop by and say "Hello" and see what treasures you can find!

We Finally Have Online Shopping!

Yup, I have stepped into the 21st century and have set up an online store for you! I'm quite excited about our new look with our website and having the ability to offer online shopping.

Click on the "Shop" tab on our homepage.  Browse our online shop often as we're constantly adding new products in each of our categories. We obviously can't put everything in our physical store online, so call or email us if you're looking for something specific or if you need a larger quantity of an item listed online. We'd love to hear your feedback as well!
