Goodbye, Sara and Kelly!

Two of our college students went back to school this week. Kelly is a senior at Johnson Bible College near Knoxville, Tennessee, and Sara is an entering freshman at Va Tech. We are really going to miss them this fall, but both ladies promise that they will return to help out during vacation periods whenever they can. We wish both of them good luck in their academic careers!
Meanwhile say hello to Emberley and Debbie starting next week. Emberley is a junior at Stuarts Draft High School, and Debbie is returning to retail after an absence of three years. You may have seen her at the Liz Claiborne outlet shop a while ago. We welcome both ladies to the world of Hallmark!


When I was little, I remember singing a song called Halloween. It went like this:
Halloween, Halloween,
Oh, what funny things are seen.
Witches hats, cold black cats,
Broomstick riders, mice and rats!
Well, we left out the mice and rats, but Halloween is coming on strong at Wright's Hallmark. Our Halloween cards are out. Check out the new cards that contain candy treats! We have some wonderful decorative items to be seen. Come in and see our screen cats! They are a real hoot. We have a selection that can hang on a door or wall and some that stand. I'm trying to decide which one I want this year. Yankee candles in Apple Cider and Purrchouly also make a statement in the fall line-up. Get yours soon. Spider rings and earrings from Dept. 56 and Two's Company will help you feel wickedly fashionable. The rings are especially fun! So come on in and take a tour of our store.

It's beginning to look a little like fall at the Wright's Hallmark. Harvest, Candied Apple, and MacIntosh Yankee candles bring that crisp-air feeling into the store. A new tumbler of Autumn Wreath with a special lid is a members only special of $16.99 instead of the regular $21.99. The new Cheerful Giver cnadles have been a hit so far. Many are in pumpkin-shaped glass containers to add that special decorative touch. As the summer sales wind down, more fall and Halloween merchandise will find its way onto the shelves!

New Webkinz on Order

We have ordered the following Webkinz which should arrive sometime during September: Eagle, Floppy Pig, Chipmunk, Bullnosed Dolphin, and Sheep. Cats and Bats for Halloween hopefully will arrive then, too.


Fred is doing just great! In fact, he will be home soon. Surgeons removed a wedge of his lung along with some lymph nodes. He appears to be cancer-free! Thanks for your prayers, care, and concerns.

Ten Bears Purses

We received a new supply of Ten Bears purses in fall colors last Friday. Many new styles and four new colors are available at reasonable prices. One of the best things about this company is the fast turnaround once an order is made. If you see something you like, we can get the style and color you need very quickly!

Prayers Requested for Our Friend Fred

We have a friend that could use a lot of prayers this Thursday as he is going into surgery to remove a tumor and some lymph nodes. Please pray for our friend Fred and his family. It would mean a lot for him to know that so many people out there are pulling for a successful surgery and recovery.
