We are having a major sale at the store . Many stationery items are reduced as well as a large display of picture frames. Some wedding albums, memory books, and guest books can be found at reduced prices. There are some Christmas boxed cards as well as Product Red boxed stationery. Many 2005, 2006, and 2007 Keepsake ornaments are 50% off.

Lang Calendars Arrive

Our Lang 12 month wall calendars are here, also. We ordered two sizes this year since so many customers said they could not accommodate the larger wall calendar. Come in early for the best selection. Prices range from $12.95 to $18.50.

Fantastic Weekend!

Ornament Premiere was absolutely fantastic! The response to the 2008 holiday line was so much more than we ever anticipated thanks to our wonderful customers in the Augusta, Rockingham, and Nelson counties, Waynesboro, Staunton, and Stuarts Draft areas. We even had collectors stop in from Fluvanna County and the last customer of the weekend was from Kentucky! WOW!!! The most popular ornaments were Cool Decade, Snow Buddies, and the new series Snowman Family Trims the Tree. Let us know your favorites!

Five Days Until Premiere!

It is only five days until Ornament Premiere and we are ready! The wall looks fantastic, and there are so many cute ornaments. One of my favorites this year is the Sweet Little Soldier so check him out! Others to look for are A Present for Pooh-Tigger is all wrapped up in holiday green- and Nutcracker Claus-a new series ornament. Look closely at Window Shopping and see the beads of sweat on Mickey's head! Bringing Home the Tree shows Micky and Pluto in a car, but like every dog I know, Pluto has his head out the window. There are many limited quantity ornaments just for the weekend and a special ball ornament that is absolutely beautiful also in limited quantities. There is something for everybody, so come on out to the Town center and see us beginning at 9:00 A.M.

Around the Town Center

McAlister's Deli is scheduled to open on July 14!. We are so excited to finally have an eatery on site. The menu looks great, and we all look forward to having a meal at McAlister's!
The new high rise next to us (well, almost next to us) is going to be Books-A -Million. This, too, will be a wonderful asset to the Town Center. There are two smaller retail spaces between them and us. As of this writing, we do not know what will go in those smaller spaces.
Ross is now hiring and plan to open its doors for business on July 17.
WOW! We really are growing! Stay tuned for more info from the Center!
