holiday shopping shindig!

hello, friends! 

we hope you're having a lovely autumn and looking forward to thanksgiving! here at the shop we are gearing up for a shopping shindig to kick off the holiday season. here are the details:

when: wednesday, november 18
time: 4:00 - 7:30

please note that we will be closing at 1:00 that wednesday to set up all the goodies!

goodies, you say? let me tell you about some goodies. there will be a number of 2-4-1 steals, where you can snag two for the price of one. (who doesn't love a one for you, one for me approach to holiday shopping?!) we will also have a juicy selection of items that will be specially priced for this event only. 

a few things to remember:
  • these steals and deals will only be available during this event. 
  • due to how crazy busy this event usually is, we are unable to do any gift wrapping during the party.
  • we are unable to split 2-4-1 deals between customers at the counter. 
  • as with any sale items, all sales are final. no exchanges.
we can't wait to see you, and happy fall!

p.s. in case you haven't been on 4th street recently, we are excited to have the pie chest, milli joe, and hedge as our new neighbors across the street!

mama's day celebration, may 3!

 it goes without saying (but we're sayin' it anyway) that we love our moms around here.

we also love all the moms that shop here and all the grannies, too. we especially love new moms and moms to be. does that cover it? oh, AND all the future mamas who are stashing goodies for their future fams! so....we want to celebrate all of you!

on thursday, may 3rd from 5-8 we will open our doors to all moms, grannies, mamas to be and yes, those of you who might just want to treat the moms you love.

*there will be juicy 2-4-1 goodies that we have been hoarding just for this occasion, on both sides of the shop.
*we will also have an extra special drawing for all moms who attend.
*in addition, we will extend 10% off your purchase (not including any 2-4-1 you may find yourself nabbing)!!
*want a sneak peek of some of the goodies?

*and there will be bubbly, one can't forget the bubbly!

so please come and celebrate moms everywhere!
spoil yourself or a mom you know and love.

p.s. see that sweet face at the top of the page? those cute pursed lips belong to ezra, baby extraordinaire of our own aaron! ezra made his debut on april 4, and as you can see, he is absolutely scrumptious! we can't wait to watch redford showing ezra the ropes in the few years...

not to be missed

hey, have you heard?
we're all grown up and having a baby!

you may have noticed all of our baby and kids goodies
have slowly disappeared over the past few weeks.
after much hard work they are now reunited
and happily settled in the adjoining space at 110 fourth street n.e.
we're so excited that the existing shop gets to grow up a bit
and that we can let all things cute run wild right next door!

to celebrate our new addition,
we're having a little soiree with bubbly and sweet deals.
come see us:

thursday, october 6
6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
114 AND 110 fourth street n.e.

everything in 114 fourth street will be 10% off, and even better,
everything in 110 will be 20% off! not only that,
but we're pulling out all of our children's two-for-one merchandise just for this event,
so you can stock up on birthday and holiday gifts for all the little ones in your life now!
(stay tuned, of course, for news of our annual 2-4-1 party in november!)

p.s. fun giveaway treats for the first 20 peeps
through the door!
come see us!
