Thank You!

We'd like to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by and shopped with us for Small Business Saturday!  You all are the reason we get to do what we love and we appreciate each and every one of you.  We were so touched by the number of people who made a point to stop by to support us - thank you for helping us kick off the holidays on such a good note!

Speaking of the holidays, check out our newest line that arrived just in time for all that holiday entertaining.  Kitchen Papers are an easy way to dress up your table without a lot of fuss - no ironing required!  These paper placemats, tray liners and note pads make entertaining a breeze and are available in a variety of patterns to suit every style.  They make wonderful hostess gifts and would be perfect for those chefs on your holiday list!

Small Business Saturday

Between braving the crowds on Black Friday and scouring the internet on Cyber Monday, show your support for local businesses on the second annual Small Business Saturday.  Make Saturday, November 26 a day to "shop small" and visit small businesses in your community (like us!).  We hope you can stop by to enjoy some cider and treats while browsing our latest holiday arrivals - and don't forget our complimentary gift-wrapping service to help make gift-giving even easier!  Not only do small businesses often offer items that are different than the big box stores, but shopping small has a tremendous impact on the local economy.  So pick some of your favorite local spots and pledge to "shop small" on Small Business Saturday!

Fair Trade Holiday

We were so excited when we discovered this line at market in January.  (Yes, we really do start shopping for the holidays in January!)  Not only are the products unique and handmade, they are also produced and distributed through fair trade.  Not familiar with fair trade?  Basically a fair trade company is one who works with artisans in developing countries providing fair wages and a safe working environment.  This allows the artisans to use their skills to create unique products while earning a sustainable income to support themselves and their families.

These fun stockings, pillows and ornaments caught our eye at market and we couldn't wait to share them with you.  We're sure you'll love the bright colors and whimsical designs as much as we do!

And just a reminder that we're celebrating the holiday season this weekend at our Holiday Open House!  Join us today through Sunday for goodies, gifts and giveaways while shopping our latest holiday arrivals.  Hope to see you soon!
