Yes I was open today from 1-5pm. The drawing for the $50 Cottage Panache gift card continues through December 22nd. For every $25.00 you spend (not including tax) you will put a copy of your receipt with your name and phone number into the shell box on the counter so that I can draw at the end of the day and notify you immediatley so you can come and get it on the 23rd if you like! That way you can either spend it or even give it as a gift to another.
And as always Cottage Panache Gift Cards are available in any increment that you desire.
My hours next week will be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 10am to 5:30pm.
The store will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Sunday! Wow I have never had three days off in a row for a long time. I haven't even decorated at home yet. In my childhood days when we lived on the farm in Michigan we had grew Christmas Trees on the farm and we would go out and choose and cut down our own tree and trim it (yes literally trim it) and then decorate it. We would go to bed after we spent a little while laying beneath the tree staring up at it in all it's glory until we would start to dose off and were scurried off to bed. Those were the days!
I still have so much to do to get the house ready. I am hoping that next year I can afford an employee so that I can get the house ready earlier - but for now it looks like it will be Christmas eve again - which is okay and what I am used to. After all the kids can't peak at their gifts if I don't have them out and under the tree yet - right?!
I will leave you with some more Christmas Candy to eye in the meantime!
Did I mention that all of the Christmas Candy is on sale?!
