|Red is our favorite color for February!|
alentine's Day is this month, and what a nice holiday it is! In the dark and cold of the winter is this heart-warming day filled with warm reds and pinks, flowers and lace. A hint of spring as the days almost imperceptibly begin to lengthen. A day set aside specifically to express love, friendship and admiration.
Whatever your style of expression, we want to help! Of course we have a great selection of jewelry, beautiful cards and freshly made candy, but we also have just the perfect gift for that not-so-traditional recipient: luxurious scarves, pretty bowls, functional yet beautiful wood spoons and salad tongs - the list goes on and on. And for the guys, we have a few ideas, too - amazing knives from France and our Southwest, tie tacks, treats, finely finished wood boxes. We even have some Tintin mugs appropriate for the holiday!
Come in and see, and fall in love with something! Scattered throughout the store look for our new "gifts to go", a selection of items in a box, beautifully presented, ready to go!
Whatever your selection, we'll be happy to deck it out in a gift box and ribbons fit for your festivities!
Watch this space for info on our events throughout the year - our Anniversary Sale in July, specials, and trunk shows, especially our Kristin Ford Trunk Show in late Oct. or early November. Dates will be announced as they are determined!
And don't forget we are open
every evening until 8 p.m.,
Monday through Saturday,
from 11 to 5 on Sundays.
