Next to Newsletter- Monday, May 25

The thrill of shopping without the guilt!

Well, my tentative entry into the brave new world of blogging seemed to go well- at least no one complained about it. I also blogged a couple of Hot Flashes.

Starting next week, instead of receiving the usual email newsletter, you'll receive a short note with a link to click to go to the newsletter blog. I think this will be an improvement in a number of ways.

First, sometimes pictures or links don't travel well from one ISP to another. This way, all of the images and links will show up on everyone's screen.

Second, it will be easier for moi- I send out the newsletter in batches, so that's about 20 emails each week. This way, I won't have that long wait as pictures load in each outgoing email. Quick and easy- that's a winner in my book.

Plus, it's interactive- feel free to leave comments, suggest other links and just let everyone know how and what you're doing...

So, please bookmark this
site and feel free to visit often. I'll be adding Hot Flashes and other items of interest during the week.

What's On Sale?

Let's do the Wild Card Sale again. Pick a card to find out where your 30% off discount is. It could be pants and shorts, shoes and bags, infant wear, dresses and sets, even storewide...who knows? And we believe in do-overs. If you don't like your first card, feel free to draw again!

There's CA$H in your closet!

Since the economy began it's precipitous nosedive, N2N has been doing all of it's buying in exchange for credit in the shop. That move has kept us solvent and in business while so many other shops have folded.

Now, we've decided to stick our toes back into the cash buying waters...each week, we'll be doing cash buying for one area in the shop that really needs inventory. This week, it's SCRUBS.

Here's how it works... bring your scrubs that are in perfect condition. We'll buy them for cash. You can bring in other clothing and accessories as well- we'll buy them for credit as usual. Please pack your scrubs separately and let us know that you have cash items when you come in. Buying hours are the same: Monday thru Thursday 10AM to 4PM and other times by prior arrangement.

We'll be buying scrubs for cash all week- through Thursday, May 28th. Check next week's newsletter to see what the next buy-for-cash department will be.

Stop the presses! New columns!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Gainesville Times. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

His latest was published on May 23. Click here to read Arthur's piece on downloading a free trial of Windows 7.

Computer Camp

If you’re still scrambling to come up with ideas for occupying the kids this summer, you might want to check out these
free Apple Summer Workshops for kids 8-12. Apple Stores across the country will be providing kids with computers, digital cameras, and camcorders to help them create and produce digital masterpieces, such as slideshows, movies, and songs. They have a Camp Permission Statement with some additional fine print, but it sounds like a pretty cool activity to me. Click here to find the closest Apple store.

Golf Tournament

The Gainesville Evening Optimist Club is sponsoring it's annual Youth Golf Tournament this Thursday, May 28th. It's at Chicopee Woods Golf Course, with an 8 AM tee time. It's for boys and girls ages 10-18. Winners receive trophies and advance to the next tournament. State winners compete for scholarships at a tournament in Florida later this summer. Email me ( ) for details and a registration form or you can pick up a form at Chicopee Wood's Pro Shop.

The Holly Children's Theater in Dahlonega is now registering for camps for ages 3 to 17. From performance camps to dance camps to writing camps, there's something for everyone!

ofit educational program with a full time education director, several assistant directors, teachers, interns, and volunteers.
