I love parties and especially when there are even more toys and treats around for me! The Annual Holiday Pet Supply Sale is coming up Dec 16th - 20th and I will be on duty along with Stanley to make sure the toys and USA treats are abundant. If you don't have a pet or aren't a "Grandpaw", there's still plenty for you. We will have door prizes, popcorn and cookies, get your picture with the Gorilla contest and lots of specials throughout the store, not just in the pet department. The lotion station will also be up and running on the 19th and 20th, so you can make your own custom scented lotion for yourself or to give as gifts. We will have teas for tasting on the 20th so you can sample a few of our loose leaf teas while you browse. Want to do homemade gifts but feel like you are too late to get things done? Nonsense, I've seen many a gift made on the 24th around our household, you've got tons of time with our help. Okay, so you may not be able to make that super duper hand knitted Christmas sweater without devoting every waking minute to it but you can get started on that in January for next year. How about making some wonderful unique soaps, lotions or lip balms? Something they can use year round, don't have to dust and would be buying anyhow. Most everybody showers or takes a bath at some point in their life so make the world a cleaner, greener place by using our all natural bases to create a special gift for that special person on your list. Of course, I will have to get Stanley out of his rocking chair and away from his EdenPure Heater for a while to work, which if you have been here lately you know it may be a hard task so I better get to work myself and go prod him. Hope to see you this coming week!
