New Sale Items

Over the July 4th holiday, the mall is having sidewalk sales . . . July 4 thru 7!  This will be a great time to pick up some bargains throughout the mall.  We will be participating with tables out front as well as items inside the store!  Make sure you come by and check us out!  Remember, every purchase you make is recorded on your loyalty card we have on file.  If you have not joined out loyalty ‘frequent buyer’ program, you can sign up the next time you come by.

This week, we have sale prices on our remaining product from Fischer&Wieser.  We will no longer be stocking these great tasting marinades and jams – so you benefit from our clearance pricing!  Look here for more information about the Texas based company.  Our favorites have been the roasted berry and chipolte sauces – great as a marinade and even better with cream cheese on crackers!

Finding treasures

This weekend we are having winter sidewalk sales in the mall.  We have finished inventory, and now are cleaning and reorganizing areas in the store.  We are decluttering!  We’ve found things that we didn’t even remember that we still had!  Kinda like when you clean out a closet and you find treasures way in the back that you’ve forgotten about!  Well, our treasures are going on our sale table – so maybe they will become your treasures, or possibly a great gift for a special someone that you know!

We have purchased things from many companies that are no longer around, and companies who no longer manufacture what we use to buy.  Either way, we may have 1 or 2 products left (in great condition, mind you) that we just cannot find a spot for them to fit in.  Those are the kinds of things you will find on our sale table.

We have some curtain and rug patterns that have been discontinued.  We cannot order any more of the same items to match – so we price them down and put them on our sale table.

We have some things that may be slightly damaged or might have been samples . . . you’ll find those on our sale table.

And then, there are some cute, cute, cute (at least we thought they were) things we brought in for Christmas that did not sell very well.  Or we may have bought too many of those really, really cute things, and didn’t sell all of them (it happens).  Anyway – they will be on our sale table!

Whatever you find on our sale table – from mailbox covers, to door mats, or candles, or dog collars, or Christmas car charms – might be that perfect treasure you need, or will need to pass on to someone else! 

Take time this weekend to stop by and see what we have at great sale prices!  Help us move things out, so we have room to move new product in!  The tables get set up Friday morning, and come down Monday night.  And while you are here, check out how we are rearranging the store — we think you’ll like the changes!

Even as we are finishing counting inventory, packing away some Christmas product, and ordering in new product for this spring . . . we are getting ready to participate in the mall’s sidewalk sales this weekend 13th-16th!  Just like a yard sale, this gives us a chance to clear away some things on our shelves to make room for totally new product.  Nothing wrong with the things we will have on our sale tables — might be a discontinued item, the last of a group of items, or some over-stock items.  Stop by and check out the goodies we will have out.

In the meantime . . . we’ve just gotten in an order of glittered prints!  If you saw them before Christmas, you probably fell in love with the glittered look of the winter-time prints!  This order will most likely be the last of the season because in another 4 – 5 weeks, we will be putting out spring merchandise.

Timer tealight candles are on their way along with lanterns and other items from Hearthside Collection.  Check back here to see other new items coming in!

Ready for the Big Bang

Most of us are getting ready for a really big July Fourth weekend celebration — get-togethers with friends and family, community celebrations, fireworks and of course . . . picnics and lots of food!  If you need a quick dip, we have some great mixes.  We have the ever popular veggie, dill and jalepeno dips . . . garlic spread mix, lemon blueberry mix, fiesta nacho cheese mix, salsa mix (two kinds) and so many more.  What’s great about these mixes — all the dry ingredients are in the package — all you need to add is mayo, cream cheese, sour cream or other on-hand ingredients.  Easy!  And you can even use the low fat varieties if you want.  AND Country Creations no bake chocolate or lemon cheesecake is yummy beyond belief!

Many of our mixes have additional recipes that turn a simple dish into a gourmet delight.  Stop by this weekend to sample Bacon Cheese and Onion dip (just add mayo and sour cream) and sweet Chocolate Covered Cherry Dip.  If you like it and buy a mix we are sampling, we will take $1.00 off the price.  If you missed the last post, we are participating in the Mall’s Sidewalk Sales this weekend.  Stop by thru Monday and check it all out!

Have a happy and safe July 4th!

Store sales

It’s that time of year again.  We have sale priced some merchandise to make room for new items that will be arriving in the next months.  Besides our ‘sale cupboard’ where we have discontinued product all the time . . . we have 3 major sales over the next couple weeks!

1.  We are participating in the Mall’s Sidewalk Sales over the July 4 holiday weekend.  Check our tables out front for all sorts of things under $10.00.  Pick up a list at the register to see what other merchandise we will have on sale inside the store.

2.  While they last, our 34ounce Cheerful Giver Papa size single wick jar candles are $9.00 off the regular price of $23.99.  These candles — your favorite scents include Juicy Apple, Aunt Kooks Apple Cider, Lilac Blossom, Gourmet Sugar Cookie, and many more — are now being made with two wicks for an even better burn.  Our in stock supply of single wick jars are reduced so there is no confusion.  At $14.99 these candles will not be on the shelves very long.  And while you are picking up a couple sale jars, check out some of the new scents we’ve gotten in — Luscious Current, Harvest Orchards, Spiced Pear Cider, and Woodland Fig — they all smell delicious!

3.  We have 2012 Calendars in stock now!  And, they are on sale @ 15% off the regular price!  Why do we do this every year?  We have calendars from 3 different companys – Lang, Legacy, and new this year – Crossroads.  Many of you have a particular calendar, a particular style or particular artist that you like.  Right now, we have the best selection of dated 2012 calendars that we will have for the rest of this year.  Now is your best chance to get the calendar that you love to have in your home or office.

This Friday begins Sidewalk Sales at the mall, which continue thru the weekend.   Sidewalk sales are wonderful if you are a customer — you can usually find great product at really great pricesSidewalk sales are wonderful if you are a store — it gives you a chance to clear out some great product at really great prices!!  It’s a win-win situation. 

As seasons change, we pack some things away with the intent of  bringing them out at the next appropriate season.  Sometimes that happens and sometimes the things just start to collect.  At home, when that happens, we have a yard sale!  Sometimes we even get our neighbors and friends together for a bigger community yard sale.  Lots of great stuff at really great prices !  When this happens at the mall — we have  sidewalk sales!   So if you’re in the neighborhood this weekend thru Monday, stop by and check out all the goodies.  You may find some needful things, or a great gift for an upcoming birthday or even something to tuck away for next Christmas!

When you come by, don’t stop at the tables out front without coming in to check out our regular sale cupboard, some great soy candles that have been marked down, and Park Designs discontinued product which has been sale priced.  Help us to make room on our shelves for new product already coming in!
