Make a Wish
One of our Customers and Meetup Members is very active in the Make-A-Wish local chapter and she has asked us to help this holiday season.
The local chapter of Make-A-Wish is doing a holiday toy drive. They are collecting presents for wish children for their annual holiday party. Here's where we come in- they have a hard time getting gifts for children ages 12-18. Everyone wants to buy little kid toys. Laura thought some of our wonderfully talented crafters could make up some clip boards, stationary, gift cards, mini scrapbooks etc, that would be a good gift for teenage girls. They need to be ready and dropped off at our store by November 29th. Laura will pick them up for their party. You can e-mail Laura at: and go visit:
Well check out our website for all the new product we got in. I can give you a little sample.
Check back often we will be posting our November Challenge and more info on our next SALE on November 24th.
See you on the meetup.......
