party and raffle news

valentines is clearly not just for lovers, it seems it's for everyone, as it should be. between the snow and the cold, peeps just wanna have some fun. so the party was a huge success, with almost all bubbly and chocolate gone by the end and lots of gifts and treats snatched up. this party goes down as the funnest one we have ever had at o'suz. i have to admit with all that was going on in town i had the feeling in my gut that only a few people would come, boy was i wrong. thank you to everyone for making it a memory for us at the shop. here are some pics and then on to raffle news:

so we have been collecting names for our mystery raffle since first thing friday morning and plan to draw names this evening, feb 14, and post and call the winners tomorrow around 11. just to mix it up we plan draw 14 names, all 14 of whom will win a one time 20 dollar shopping trip in to o'suz. this way, there will be lots a happy people and we can feel we are spreading the love around. stay tuned for us to post the winners tomorrow morn!!!

welcoming 2010 and prepping for sale

so as we settle into 2010 and reflect on 2009 (a little), it is safe for us to say that we were happy to turn the page. o'suz loves change and a new year always holds great possibilies. we hope to have a website soon and an an online shop as well, but in the mean time it is business as usual and that is OK!

as always, our sale is just around the bend. the plan, as of now, is to have it all out by this monday, january 4rth, at opening. there is a fair amount: lots of books and tons and tons of cards and kids stuff comes to mind, as i type from home on this uber windy day. it is safe to say though, that it will be as juicy as always cuz once i get going, i usually get wild hairs and throw some serious merch in for good measure. aaron will be there monday to sell it up and i will be there tuesday working for our lovely jessica who is in italia teaching for 3 weeks!!!
* miss you jessa, says red

come see us if u can,
here's to goodtimes in 2010.

weather weather weather

...seems to be the topic of chat on the streets as of last thursday really. what's truly blowing my mind is how many days until redford turns 2 (3) and we usher in the christmas of 2o09 (4). december has literally flown by in and amidst many snowflakes. just a quick reminder that we are here, the store is full and juicy with even more new goods arriving almost daily.

we also got a wild hair and are making a 4 tiered sale section that u just can't miss, of scratch and dents, last ofs, and the 2 for 1 has been broken up as well. all of these goodies, still worthy of giftyness will be living at the front of the store until the new year rings in so come on by and snatch up some fun stocking stuffers or that special pressie you have just not found yet. we will happily wrap it all and do our best to send you out our door smiling. fyi, we may stay open later this week so give us a call 979-7467 if you'd like to swing in later then our normal 6pm closing time and we will stay, just for you...and you...and you!

p.s. be safe and don't forget the parking garages when circling for a spot to park. some spots are clear downtown but not as many as i would hope to see considering how important this week is to all the downtown retailers and restaurants. if you love downtown, try to pop down and: grab a coffee at mudhouse, some staples at the market street market, some vino or bubby from robert at market street wine shop, a vintage gifty at the consignment house, some lovely treasure from eg or elosie, some kids shoes at boutique boutique and or a gem at angelo for that special someone. hope to see you!!
