Seda France Candles

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

We love the smell of spring (it's really coming)! Stock up on our new travel candle tins.
A perfect match-up is our new matches housed in a decorative box.
Go ahead leave the box out, your ready to strike a flame and they're cute to boot!
Scents available: Japanese Quince, French Tulip & Hyacinth.


Taking a moment to think of the families that have lost their loved ones at Virginia Tech.

Here's what flew at our spring open house: nests, egg soaps from France, candy, palm crosses, crown of thorns, sheep, Seda France candles, Gianna Rose petite egg soaps, religious postcards, & the classic SALTWATER SANDALS.

Customers our excited to find these hard to find sandals for girls & boys. We have been special ordering adult sizes too.

Thanks to our customer Peg Mennings who traveled to Italy for vacation and picked up a hard to find Italian stapler for us. We sold out of these and the company wasn't importing them anymore. They have a darling small brass colored staple, perfect for our creative projects. I know this has to be one of Peg's more memorable moments in Europe. (right, Peg?) They had to motion with their hands like they were stapling to get the vendor to understand. Sure enough he jumped into his cargo truck and brought one out. Bravo for Peg!

Darcy & I are working on marketing for the exciting Amy Butler event in June. Her new patterns have been a hit.
We were excited to see in Country Living May 2007, their "Notions section" and wouldn't you know it we had one already "going on" in our store. See our previous posts.

We now have one of the new Rosanna collections, colored polka dots on different serving pieces....creamer & sugar, teacups w/saucers, beverage pitcher & teapot perfect for that special gathering. A few of our favorite things!

Darcy's creative display! We had a good response to window. Amy Butler's fabric is suspended from the ceiling and our "bust" is adorned in the Morning Glory pattern. Libeco Home's striped bags from Belgium add a fun twist.

Happy Easter! He is Risen!

French Carnival pots are dressed for spring & summer!
