Fall Show Hotel Reservations

Hello Three Speckled Hens fans! While summer is still all around us, it is already time to look ahead to October for booking a hotel for the next Three Speckled Hens show. If you are traveling to our show, we recommend reserving your room several weeks in advance as Paso Robles is a popular destination filled with wineries, beaches and great antique stores! For a full list of lodging options, visit our website.

Hen Special: If you book at The Oaks Hotel or the Marriott Courtyard, be sure to mention the Three Speckled Hens Antique Show in order to receive one of our favorite things - a discount! Note that you must book at least 6 weeks prior to the show (one month from today) in order to receive the special rate.

We can't wait to see you in October!

Three Speckled Hens are Going Green!

Hello all! It is officially summer and we hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! The good things on the top of Hens’ summer lists are: the beach, summer fruit and veggies, music and wine in our small town park and tons of great estate and garage sales! Can’t have too much of any of that!

On the other hand, living on the central coast of California has made us very aware of the drought that is enveloping a great deal of the west. Trees are dying and water sources are drying up. It has been a real wake up call for all of us. We need to cut back our use of natural resources and take advantage of the wonderful tools that have been developed that can help replace them.

In this vein, the Three Speckled Hens have decided that starting in 2016, we will stop mailing out our twice-yearly printed postcards advertising our show. Instead we will be moving online and sending out a “Save The Date” email reminder to all of you who have signed up to be part of our email list. This will cut back tremendously on printed material, mail delivery and maybe save a few trees and decrease energy use.

If you are not already on our email list, join today to ensure that you receive access to our show reminders, blog posts, Early Bird ticket discount code, and more. To sign up, simply go to our website and click the “Join Our Email List” button on the top left corner of the homepage. We promise you will not be inundated with emails - just the important ones like when tickets go on sale for our next show! To our dealers and shop keepers, at this time we will continue to print our smaller rack cards for your customers as we haven’t figured out the right “green solution” to get around that yet. Anybody have any ideas? We are all ears!

We hope you enjoy a fabulous summer and remember to mark your calendars now for our spectacular fall show on Oct 3 & 4, 2015.
