Thank You!

We'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who came out and shopped small this weekend!  Once again we were blown away by your support - what a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season!  We truly appreciate each and every person who comes to The Picket Fence.  It's because of you that we get to do something we love, so thank you.

And thank you to everyone who donated food for Food for Others!  We appreciate you helping us pay it forward and make a difference in the community.  Congratulations to Janet R - winner of the $50 gift certificate!

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and that we'll see you in the store soon!

Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is back!  After hitting the big-box stores for Black Friday bargains, we hope you will join us in supporting the small businesses in our community on Saturday, November 24.  Now in its third year, Small Business Saturday was started to help promote local businesses on retail's biggest weekend.  We encourage you to make a point to visit your favorite local shops and restaurants this weekend - not only will you be supporting a small business, you'll also be helping your community.

Of course, we'd be thrilled to have you celebrate Small Business Saturday with us at The Picket Fence!  We were blown away by the support you showed us last year, so this year we decided we'd like to pay it forward and help the community.  We've teamed up with a local food bank to help area families in need this holiday season.  We will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for Food for Others all day on Saturday.  And as a way of saying thank you for helping us support such a wonderful organization, every person who brings a donation will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate for our store!

Just a reminder that we will be closed on Thursday in honor of Thanksgiving.  We wish you all a wonderful holiday and hope that you'll be "shopping small" this Saturday!

Frasier Fir

We admit it's a little early to be talking holidays, but there's really no need to wait until the holiday season to enjoy the wonderful fragrance of Frasier Fir.  And once we saw the beautiful new packaging, we just knew we had to show it off!  It's still the same great fragrance people have come to love - just packaged with a fresh new design.  We love the cheery red and white plaid on the special seasonal collection, as well as the crisp, modern take on the pine boughs that decorate the rest of the products.  We're well stocked with candles, diffusers and more, but given the popularity of this fragrance we're willing to bet we won't be for long!  Stop by soon to see the updated collection for yourself!

Fall Is In The Air

The past few days have definitely put us in the mood for fall.  Beautiful, sunny days and crisp, cool nights are a welcome change after the heat of summer.  Here at the store we're decked out for Autumn with leaves and berries and pumpkins galore!  We love the warm, rich colors that accompany fall and how they help make your home a little more cozy.  Need to fresh batch of fall potpourri?  A new wreath for the front door?  A few more pumpkins (you can never have too many!)?  Whatever you are looking for, we have a wide array of fall merchandise to help you welcome the season.

Celebrating 4 Years

The Picket Fence is turning 4!  That's right, it's our birthday and we want you to help us celebrate.  The past four years have flown by - it seems like just yesterday we were opening our doors for the very first time.  We've learned a lot, made some great new friends and had so much fun bringing unique gifts and home decor items to Burke.  As we celebrate 4 years in business, we'd like to take the opportunity to thank all our wonderful customers who have supported us over the years.  We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you!

We hope you can join the celebration this weekend September 7-9.  Enjoy some goodies, register to win a door prize a day and start Fall off right with 15% off everything in the store!!  It's a great time to grab that piece you've had your eye on or start stocking up for the holidays (they're coming fast!). 

We're looking forward to celebrating with you!!

Summer Fun

We're sure you've heard it before and will probably hear it again - that usual mid-summer complaint of  "I'm bored!"  Sure, the pool is fun, but only when the sun is shining.  Maybe you're planning a summer getaway and need some distractions for the car/plane ride.  Or maybe you just want to unplug all the electronics for a while.  We've got some great ideas for keeping kids entertained this summer.  Check out these great new arrivals -

Kids can create their own masterpieces using these eco-friendly art supplies.  They are all made in the US using dyes made from all natural fruit, plant and vegetable extracts.  So let the kids paint, draw and sculpt the day away!

Of course, you'll need somewhere to display these new works of art.  Handcrafted in Arkansas, these wooden "Look What I Did" boards are the perfect way for kids to show off their handiwork.

 Taking a road trip?  Our new car bingo game is a great way to keep kids entertained on the road.  The fabric-covered board is magnetic, so no need to worry about little pieces falling all over the car.  The magnets come in a handy pouch to keep them contained.

We love eeBoo for their fun, colorful games and activities.  These smaller versions are great for traveling and their popular Sidewalk Games has lots of ideas to keep kids entertained outside.

These play scenes have always been a customer favorite.  Perfect for trips, each board comes with reusable decals in a variety of themes.  Kids can put their imagination to use creating scene after scene.

With a similar concept, these magnetic design sets come in a handy tin for easy transport and storage.

Keep track of all those summer adventures in one of our kid's travel journals.  Part diary, part activity book, these journals are a great way to for kids to remember all their summer fun!

At The Beach

It's the time of year when we all dream of packing up and heading off to the beach.  Who doesn't want to spend a few days relaxing by the ocean and soaking up some sun?  Even if such a trip isn't in the plans for you this summer, we have lots of great merchandise to help bring a little piece of the beach to you!  So sit back, relax and listen to those waves rolling in...




Don't forget the sunscreen!
