Morning, everybody!

Thanks to everyone who turned out for the First Friday 1/2 Price Sale on August 7! The next one will be September 4th so mark your calendars.

I hope everyone's ready for back to school- I always find the first week absolutely exhausting. It takes a few days to get back into the routine of early bedtimes and 6 AM wake-ups.

Here at N2N we've been busy busy busy putting out great fall fashions- come on in to get the jump on cool weather wear.

What's on sale this week?

Let's do the Wild Card Sale. 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!

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 great 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, August 6th. Check next week's newsletter to see what the next buy-for-cash department will be.

Just call me Buttercup Elfdancer

I love name generators, those fun little programs where you put in your name and it gives you a new name.

You can get a
pirate name (mine's Jelly Legs Anita), fairytale name (that's how I became Buttercup Elfdancer), or a very British name (I'm Chelsea Gladstone.) The pen name generator dubbed me Cassandra Pennyfeather.

You can also get a
wolf name, vampire name, dragon name and superhero name.

Smoke on the Mountain

The year is 1938. It’s Saturday night in Mount Pleasant, NC, and the Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders Family to provide an upliftin’ evening of singin’ and witnessin’. The audience is invited to pull up a pew and join in the rollicking good time. More than two dozen songs, many of them vintage pop hymns, and hilarious stories from the more or less devout Sanders provide a richly entertaining evening that has audiences clapping, singing, laughing, and cheering.
Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for seniors age 60 and older, students and children. Call the Georgia Mountain Center at 770-534-8420 for tickets and more information.
