Next to Newsletter- Monday, October 10, 2011

Thanks so much for all of you who made our First Friday Sale one of the most successful ever! 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?

Let's do the Wild card sale- pick a card to see where your 30% discount is!


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

Arthur's latest was published on October 1st. Click here to read "Tune up your computer to make it run like new again"

My latest column was published September 30th. Click here to read "Bookstore as day care? Read on."

Teach your children well
It's never too early to teach your tweens and teens about thrifty shopping. Have them clean out their closets, bring their stuff in to N2N for store credit (don't bring it for them- they need to see the process) and then turn them loose in the shop with a store credit all their own.

I love that "light bulb" moment when a young person realizes they can get awesome name brand apparel for what feels like FREE!

We do store credit buying on a walk-in basis Monday-Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Call 770-534-9070 for more details.


The North Hall High School Hollow Horse Players will present "A SHAYNA MAIDEL", this year's one-act play competition piece, on October 20, 22 (at 7:30 pm) and 23 (at 3 pm). Tickets are $5.00.

Rose Weiss emigrated to America as a child with her father, Mordechai. Stricken with scarlet fever, older sister Lusia stayed behind in Poland with Mama, planning to follow later. Now, it's 1946 and Rose is a young woman living in Manhattan when she learns that Lusia has been liberated from a concentration camp and is coming to New York. After a fifteen-year separation, the two women are almost like strangers and must struggle to reconnect.

"A Shayna Maidel" (meaning "a pretty girl" in Yiddish) is a powerful, poignant, and emotionally charged tale of sustenance and hope, and the belief that from a broken and bitter past, a better future may be born.
Riverside Military Academy presents their fall musical: THE FANTASTICKS.

Filled with whimsy and magic, this must-see musical tells the tale of two young lovebirds from neighboring families who steal glances and keep their romance a secret from their feuding fathers. Little do the kids know that their dads are actually good friends who’ve hatched a plan—with the help of a mystical band of a traveling players—to get the pair down the aisle. Honored with a Tony Award, The Fantasticks appears in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest-running musical.

The show has the following performance dates and times in the Sandy Beaver Center auditorium on the RMA campus: Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday, October 19, 20 & 22 at 7:30 p.m.

There is no charge for admission for any of the performances. This is a family-friendly production.

Making Book

    Rachel came home from the Mule Camp Market talking about a journal she saw that was made using the covers of an old book. I was intrigued so I looked around on the Internet and found this tutorial for making your own journal.

Family Fun!
