Christmas Open House

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Sara Vallo, who is now helping us out at the shop....she's the best!
Welcome Sara!
Our new Christmas hours are Monday - Friday 10-5 & Saturday 10-4 Sunday closed

We were closed 4 days to prepare for this Christmas Open House. We were happy we accomplished little details, as with some open houses we don't always get around to doing. Details, details....make an event!
We had a ball with this theme and loved hanging "soft pretzels" in a few of our displays, I'm thinking about hanging some from my own chandelier at home, for a party!
Thanks to all of our customers that came to our "Woodland Christmas Party"
We had a ball!

Kara & Darcy,

Your shop looks absolutely dreamy! Like the perfect woodland wonderland. Can't wait to lavish in all the details in person. My husband and I plan to visit the shop very soon. I can't wait! :)
