Next to Newsletter, Wednesday, January 16, 2013

After a several-month hiatus, the Next to Newsletter has resumed publication.
It's so good to be back!

The Coke Lady's Coming!

Great news! Many of you know about the Coke Lady (so nicknamed because of her employer.) She brings gorgeous plus size fashions and size 9-9.5-10 shoes.
She's bringing us a car load of magnificent name brand fashions next Saturday, night. They'll be tagged and ready to go by the time we open on Sunday the 20th. Stop by then to get some wonderful Coke Lady bargains!

Refresher Course

You name it, we'd like to have it. Clean out everybody's closet and come on over. We especially need children's clothes. Also, shoes are a hot seller 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. 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 attention 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!

While they were home for the holidays, Molly and Rachel (aka The Resale Sisters) put together a jingle telling you all about N2N buying- click here to hear it!

Latest Columns!

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.

My latest column was published on December 28th. Click here to read "What if someone had taken his keys?"

 It's the story of losing my mother to a drunken driver.

Arthur's column ran on January 12th. Click here to read " Know your error messages, real and phony." Click here to go to his blog to read past columns.

Bargain Books
With the new semester beginning, here's a great resource for all you college students...and parents of college students: is a price comparison engine for textbooks, books, DVDs, games, music and school supplies. Unlike normal textbook stores, Bigwords doesn't sell a thing. They scour all of the best stores, compare prices, and show you where to buy your books to save the most money. On average, they save customers $225.
Instead of finding one price for one item at a time, Bigwords takes all of your items, runs every combination of those items at every store, automatically calculates coupons, promotions, and shipping, and shows you the best possible combination of stores to save you the most money.

Extra Savings

When you place an online order, there’s always that little coupon code box towards the end, beckoning you to enter a promotional code or gift certificate number to reduce your total. You know the box I’m talking about, right? Do you ever leave it blank? If you do, then you’re paying too much.

Click here to see how to make sure you never leave that box blank again, along with some tips to maximize your online coupon usage.

Video Contest

The Drug Free Coalition of Hall County has announced  the second annual Faceit Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Video Contest. It's open to middle and high school aged kids in Gainesville/ Hall County. All they do is create a video to show why their peers  should live drug-free. It's then uploaded to YouTube and the voting begins. There are lots of great prizes! For more details go to
