It's Party Time

Last week we brought over boxes and boxes of merchandise from storage for our Curtsylicious Sidewalk Sale. Being held June 19th - 22nd, we've sub-titled it our "Learning Curve Sale". We've been in business a little over 2 years now, during that time span we've learned what our customers like. Some of the sale items were mistakes, some things we paid too much for, some we're just tired of looking at. Whatever...all I know is that I've priced boxes of items at bargin prices! I can't walk through the back room as it's so crowded, but I'm going on vacation on Monday, so I guess I can stand it for another couple of days. Our generous landlord has actually agreed to let us hold the sale inside the one remaining vacant store space in this building, and we're pretty psyched about that. Don't worry they'll be signs showing the way!

Remember when you were little and the excitement you felt when you were invited to some one's birthday party? Even more fun were the games you got to play and the little prizes that were handed out. Our friends at Eeboo have updated the traditional Pin the Tail on the Donkey Game. Now it's Pin the Parrot on the Pirate and Pin the Fairy on the Flower. Both games come with a cloth blindfold and instead of pins, they use removable stickers.

A wonderful prize for the winner of the game would be a set of the Respect the Earth Flash Cards. They help kids learn simple ways to be kind to our planet with tips such as "Turn off the lights" and "Don't leave plastic on the beach". I think it's so cool that we're conscious enough about the problems facing the earth that we're raising a whole generation to be aware of the challenges out there and what they can do to help.
