It's July and beginning to feel sort of like Summer!
There is a lot going on this month with new additions to our online store, our annual Anniversary Sale and the introduction of our Birthday Club.
Recently added to our online store are some new categories - "For You", which is clothing, jewelry and personal items, and "Seattle" which will have - you guessed it - items featuring our beautiful city!
Check out the other categories as well for new additions like the tea towels under "Kitchen" and the Zents fragrance and body care line under "Bath & Body"
Our 26th Anniversary Sale begins Saturday July 14! Join us on Saturday for refreshments, additional discounts (pop a balloon to save even more on your purchase!) and receive a party favor from Zents (with purchase & while suplies last)
Join our new Birthday Club during the Sale and be entered to win! And don't worry - you just need to tell us the Month of your birth, not the Year!
