Trunk Show Update and Giveback #4

Lots of excitment in the air this past weekend!  The hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping is definitely in the air.  And, thanks to the beautiful weather and our customers, the store enjoyed lots of activity and record breaking sales for the December show! We recieved many visits from old friends and made some wonderful new ones!  Thanks to you, things just keep getting better and better all the time!

On Saturday, we were honored to have Deidra Roe of Dee Dee Style join us for a trunk show. She’s an absolute doll and her creations are nothing short of amazing! Customers no doubt loved her jewelry because on Saturday evening Deidra shared that she had her best selling day ever! Thank you for making her feel so welcome. But, with creations like this, the selling part is easy!  She's so amazingly talented....

Daphne dropped by on Saturday to bring more pillows and purses, and took all of these photos, thank you Daphne! Many of the items sold the same day, look how pretty and you'll understand why!




How fortunate we are to be surrounded by such talent!  Each of these talented ladies sell online, you can shop with Dee Dee Style here, and with Daphne Nicole here.  Be sure to check them out!

Now, on to other exciting things...it's time for Giveback #4, a large Sitting Santos Doll.



I just love these and have one sitting on the mantle at 5th Place. The lucky winner is going to love this beauty!

Leave a comment and you are entered once, pop over to our Facebook page and leave another comment and earn a second entry to win!

Good luck!

UPDATE:  Entries for this giveback are closed.  Winner is Becky C, Buckets of Burlap.
