Mothers’ Day is coming quickly – this Sunday, May 12 is the day to celebrate all moms, grandmoms, daughters, aunts, sisters, cousins and friends who have stood in for our mom when we really needed her. While we know everyday should be Mom’s day . . . it is great to have one day apart to show how much we care.
It often does not take alot of money to bring a smile to a Mom’s face – a handmade card with a simple sentiment that says how much you are cared for. Many of us Moms have collected shoeboxes full of those loving greetings over the years.
There is also something satisfying about finding the perfect gift for that special woman in our lives. We have brought in many gift items that could be that perfect find you’ve been looking for. Many of you have told us this is your favorite store . . . so come in and check out the many choices we have that will bring that smile to Her face.
From now thru Sunday, we are offering a gift with purchase. With the purchase of $35.00 of Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy or other Camille products, you will receive a free purse size Glycering Hand Therapy. We will gift bag your purchase – beautiful and ready to go.
Most folks we talk with have a hard time with the fact that we’ve already finished the first 4 months of this year 2013. When you work in retail, the time goes especially fast, mostly because you are always thinking ahead — up to six months or more. It is a constant balance for us to look for new product that you all will love (like our lighted stretched canvas prints that we have trouble keeping in stock!); buying just the right amount of that product – not too much but not too little; and keeping everyone’s favorite items in stock.
For example, we sell lots of curtains and braided jute rugs from several companies and it is nearly impossible to keep all the different styles and sizes in-store at all times. We restock almost weekly for our most popular items, but we also accept many special orders. Fortunately, most of the time, we can order curtains and rugs from our suppliers and have those items within a short amount of time. We can also ship, or drop ship curtains, rugs, quilted bedding and other soft items if you don’t live nearby.
Our newest new-for-us product comes from Camille Beckman. We’ve handled their card inserts for quite some time – a bit of lotion in a foil packet inside a small folder that easily slips into a card. It makes that card you are mailing just a little more special. After a bit of research and reading lots of customer reviews, we decided that our customers would really enjoy Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy. We recently brought in 3 of the company’s most popular fragrances (Camille, French Vanilla, Tuscan Honey) in a variety of items. In addition, we still have the card inserts and purse size Hand Therapy fragrances. If you want to check out the huge variety of items and fragrances the company has developed, look here.
Mothers’ Day is coming quickly and we are stocked up on many gifts all those women in your life will love . . . music boxes, Willow Tree, gourmet coffees, embroidered lace, candles, wax melts and wax melters, nightlights, battery operated candles and lanterns, soaps & lotions, gift certificates and lots more. We can help you make up a gift bag or basket with several goodies.

Too much time has passed since we last posted on this site. The snow and cold weather finally stopped and we’ve had more spring-like temps and rain. We jumped from a late Easter to Mothers’ Day two weeks later. In a gift shop, that covers alot of items in and out of the store in a short amount of time. We don’t usually have Easter and Mothers’ Day cards out at the same time . . . this year we did!
We’ve had many new items come and go in the last couple weeks. Our lighted florals like these mini pink roses have been a big hit with everyone . . .
New Willow Tree® pieces are on our shelves ready for you to pick out a gift for Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, Sisters and others.
We are giving away a straw tote with accessories (umbrella, tote, watch charm and manicure set) for Mothers’ Day. Check out the tote in our display window in the mall next to Verizon. Sign up in the store thru Saturday, May 7.
Our biggest project this spring was working on a commercial that is airing all this month on our local Comcast Hallmark Channel and Food Network. If you are not able to see this on cable . . . hopefully you can view it right here!
That was alot of fun. The morning Brad came to video the store, we were busy, and our customers enjoyed participating in our project! Of course there is much more in our store — we just hit the highlights — 30 seconds is not much time!
Give us some feedback on the commercial. Have you seen it on TV? If we decide to do it again, any suggestions? Post a reply to share your thoughts.
To multiply your joy, count your blessings.
