The thrill of shopping without the guilt!

Good morning, everybody!

Thanks so much to all of you who made our First Friday sale such a success!
Now that we have some extra space on the racks, we're hard at work stocking lots more winter inventory. There'll be plenty to choose from so come on by!

What's on Sale?

Monday-Tuesday: 30% OFF Skirts (this is especially for you, Elaine!)
Wednesday-Thursday: 30
% OFF Ladies
' Tops
Friday-Saturday-Sunday: 30% OFF Infantwea
r 0-24 months


You name it, we'd like to have it. Clean out everybody's closet and come on over. We especially need children's winter clothes. Also, shoes are a hot sell er and I don't need to tell you...we can never have too many shoes.

Here's a refresher on our buying program:

Do the first cut for us. Don't bring anything with problems...spots, stains, smelly, know the drill.

We do our store credit buying Monday thru Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm. You don't need an appointment but our buying is on a first come, first served basis so you may have to wait a few minutes (Hint: we have TWO buyers here on Monday and Wednesday so if you're pressed for time, those days are your best bet)

As a rule, we don't buy on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There's often only one employee in the shop and it's impossible to give our customers the atte
ntion they deserve if we're up front buying. Thanks for understanding.

We want to buy your clothes. If your schedule prevents you from coming in during normal buying hours, just give me a call (my cell is 770-539-1911) and we'll work out a time.

Dog Days

Meet Jake Glazer. This little bundle of Aussie/Border Collie/who-knows-what joy came to us from the new Hall County Animal Shelter on Barber Road. It's an adventure for all of us since we've never had a puppy before. With any luck, he'll have us trained soon.

If you're thinking of getting a pet, please consider a adopting a shelter pet. Both the Hall County Shelter and the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia have a wonderful selection of cats and dogs in every size and description.

It's Hanukkah!

Hanukkah is the most widely celebrated American Jewish holiday , possibly because it is a fun, child-centered occasion. It is celebrated with excellent food, an exchange of gifts, and the lighting of beautiful menorahs (special Hanukkah candelabras) filled with brightly colored candles. Unlike some of the other Jewish holidays, which require intense spiritual reflection or elaborate preparation, it is easy to celebrate.

It commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after its desecra
tion by foreign forces. The celebration also reaffirms the continuing struggle to live by God's commandments and to lead Jewish lives. Hanukkah begins every year on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of "Kislev." This year, the 25th of Kislev corresp
onds to the evening of December 11th, 2009.

Traditionally, food prepared in oil- latkes (potato pancakes) and jelly donuts- are served.

You don't have to be Jewish to love latkes. Click here for a great primer on latke making. Click here to see my favorite recipe.

Visit the North Pole celebrates the holidays with dozens of activities for children and families. A child-safe, award-winning holiday site, promotes a traditional look at Santa’s Secret Village at the North Pole, but with high-tech, creative features to keep children and adults entertained—all for free.

The site opens with a panoramic view of Santa’s Secret Village, the fanciful home of Santa, his elves, and reindeer. Visitors click on different ‘buildings’ to enter, leading to a variety of activities or stories. Buildings include Santa’s Mailro om, Santa’s Workshop, Elf Clubhouse, Santa’s Reindeer Barn, Santa’s Den, Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, Northpole Weather Station, Elf Pal Academy, and Toy Shop.

It's heartwarming to see how many people step up to help others during this season of giving. We get lots of folks in shopping for needy families. May I make a suggestion? Why not give a N2N gift certificate as part of your Angel Tree gift?

We'll be glad to convert some of your store credit into a gift certificate or sell you a credit to use as part of your Christmas giving. You'll know the re
