A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS . . .

Over on our Facebook page, we are highlighting some of our favorite products we sell in the shop.  Everyone who works here has their own favs — and the first two that we’ve posted are 1803 CANDLES and CAMILLE BECKMAN hand, body and bath products.  Both of these brands are a success in our shop – so we know you like them too!

1803 CANDLES® is Vicki’s favorite — no wonder why.  These soy candles and wax melts have great fragrance blends that reach out to everyone who loves scented candles.  With names like Grandma’s Kitchen, Roasted Expresso, Old Dough Bowl (say that fast 5 times!), Shoo Fly Pie and lots more, there is definitely a scent for every nose!

Rochelle’s fav pick is Camille Beckman and we carry a nice variety of their product in our best selling fragrances.  Our top seller is the Glycerine Hand Therapy — this is not just your everyday hand lotion!  Winter weather takes its toll on our skin – and the hand therapy really helps to keep hands soft, smooth and healthy.  In the summer when you work outside in the garden, you will use their intense hand therapy – Shield and Restore, to protect and ‘restore’ your hands to a soft pre-workout condition.  Here’s a few photos from the shop:

Countdown to Autumn

In just a bit over two weeks autumn will officially be here!  Does anyone else wonder what happened to summer – those long hazy days of summers of our youth?  I’m realizing that I mention how fast time is going by an awfully lot the last couple years.  My body is slowing down so I don’t understand why the days are doing just the opposite!

Anyway, fall is on the way and we wanted to show you some bits of what we’ve been busy with in the store.  It’s almost unanimous that fall is our favorite time to decorate – not necessarily with ghosts, witches, bats and the things of Halloween.  But with the colors, pumpkins, florals, scarecrows, cooler weather and fallish scents of harvest.  When you stop by here, these are some of this things you can expect to see:
