New Banners....

I hope you made it through the blizzard safely and have dug yourself out. I don't know about you, but I am starting to have cabin fever. Don't get me wrong, I loooooove snow days, but on day 3, I'm ready for the boys to head back to school. My mom took over at the store this week so I could be home with them, so I will be there all next week so she can have a little vacation. Thats just one of the perks of having a business partner.
I wanted to show you some banners that are on there way to us as I type. I am hoping for their arrival tomorow. I only ordered six so don't hesistate if you like one. You know the saying, "You snoooze you loose."
I think they are so different than anything I've seen before. I try really hard to find things like that for you, so you can have unique items in your home!

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the Christmas season!

Remember, we are open Sundays 12-4 thru Christmas only.

It appears that a blizzard is coming!
We have been very blessed so far this season with warm temps, and that has been awesome, BUT, I am soooooo excited for this storm!

Will it or won't it???? That is the guestion.
We have been known to be closed during winter storms as I live out of town and DON'T drive in really bad weather, and my mom doesn't venture out at all when it's slick. I would encourage you to call us at 319-653-5303 during these times before you come out to see us, as we might not be there. This doesn't happen very often, but it does happen.
They are even talking about possible power outages, so I hope you are stocked up on candles! If not, I know where you can get some!
Remember our hours are:
Tues, Wed, and Friday 10-6
Thurs 10-7
Sat 10-3
Sunday (through Christmas only) 12-4
