Next to Newsletter- Monday, April 8, 2013

The First Friday Sale was a big success...and you know what that means! There's plenty of room- and hangers- for new inventory. So...if you happen to be in closet-cleaning mode, feel free to throw a few bags of your summer goodies in the car and bring them by N2N.

After all, there's no better time than now to have a pocket full of store credit! Click here to let the Resale Sisters tell you all about it.

So load up the car (or truck or minivan) and come on over to N2N. Our buying hours are Monday- Thursday, 10 am to 4 pm or call us at 770-534-9070 to make other arrangements.

What's on sale?

We've just had a big markdown! Here's the 411:
30% OFF WHITE tags
75% OFF PINK tags

There's a whole new sidewalk rack. It's all 75% OFF, all spring/summer items!
Come see!


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 Computer Care column was published on March 22nd. Click here to read "Windows still rules, but there are other alternatives."

I've taken a break from my column for a few weeks. A strain of norovirus spread through the family and, well, nobody wants to read about that. I'll be back on April 12th with a column about tipping. If you've ever worked as a server, I'd love to hear about the best and worst gratuities you ever me at
In the meantime, here's an oldie that's one of my favorites: "Warning: Hamsters won't enable you to fly."

Tying up loose ends

Scarves- any size, any shape- are hotter than ever this season. Rachel sent me this video for ideas on how to tie them. Thanks, Rach!

Old jeans, new uses

I'm a long-time fan of repurposing. Apparently, so too is Heidi Klum (whoda thunk it?) Click here to see her slide show on repurposing old jeans.

Parent Power!

It's April 18th from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM in the student center and it's free.


Since our daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, we've been trying to get the word out about the symptoms. They can be subtle at first and, of course, the sooner it's diagnosed, the better. Please take a look at the warning signs, just so you'll know...

Wise Words

“It always amazes me to look at the little, wrinkled brown seeds and think of the rainbows in 'em," said Captain Jim. "When I ponder on them seeds I don't find it nowise hard to believe that we've got souls that'll live in other worlds. You couldn't hardly believe there was life in them tiny things, some no bigger than grains of dust, let alone colour and scent, if you hadn't seen the miracle, could you?”

Weekly this 'n' that

A few weeks ago, N2N's Facebook friends had an opportunity to print a coupon good for a day of half price shopping. You don't want to miss out on deals like that so click here to go to our fan page and click "like" to join up.

Remember to bring in your plastic grocery bags to recycle and register to win a $25.00 store credit. April's winner was Sherrie Duke. Thanks, Sherrie!

Get a $5.00 store credit any time you bring us a new shopper. It's easy. Just bring in your friends who've never tried N2N shopping. When they check out at the register, we'll give YOU a $5.00 credit to use on your next visit.

Let's work to get the word out: friends don't let friends shop retail!

...and remember Senior Discount Day- each Monday, everyone 55 and over gets 30% off their cash purchases.
