Back to Business

Jamie is doing much better, and is actually back to work- that is dedication!! Our hours are back to the normal 10-6 M-F and 10-4 on Saturday. Thank you for all of your calls and emails wishing her a speedy recovery, I think it did the trick. For those of you following her IVF process, she will try again in June once her body has had time to fully recover from all of the trauma.
Yesterday, we went to market, where we purchase merchandise for the store. We found quite a few new items and are really excited about getting them in. Here are a few pictures of new stuff we picked up (see the last picture, I mean "picked up" literally!!)
These are drawer knobs...sooo cute!
Finally got to test drive the new double stroller from Easy Walker, it will arrive in our store next week, along with the new Sky single (adjustable handle bar...yeah!!!).
Our most unique purchase...retro sofas for kids fashioned off the classics: mustang, corvette and camaro back seats.
Because we went on the last day of market, some of the vendors actually let you take home some of their merchandise. I fell in love with these sofas and had to get one for my son. So this is a picture of me trying to carry this 100 lb box with a sofa in it at least a mile through the showroom and out to the parking lot. Needless to say, today...I can't lift my arms!

Change in Hours, temporarily

Just a quick update on Jamie...She is still in the hospital (for those of you who don't know, she had some complications due to her IVF procedure last week, which quickly turned into severe heart problems) so POPIN hours will be shortened until further notice. We will close at 5pm during the week. She is expected to make a full recovery but they are going to keep her a few more days for monitoring. She is having another procedure to drain fluid today and hopefully that will be the last time. She finally got a few hours of sleep last night (thank heavens for medication) so she was feeling a little better this morning. Please keep her in your prayers ( along with Brian, her hubby). Thank you everyone for your support and well wishes, I have been passing them along to her and she is so grateful!

MITI & Big Bellys

We had another great Make it/Take it. We made kitchen towels but more importantly we learned how to hand embroider. Once again, Heather's pink lemonade cupcakes were divine! (She is making some yummy chocolate ones for Preston's Birthday next much better than store bought)
We also got in new Big Belly Banks yesterday. Kids love putting change in these and watching it go all the way down to the "belly". Makes a great Birthday presents!
For those of you who will be in the Jacksonville area on Saturday April 7th, make sure to stop by and pull an egg out of the basket for special discounts off your entire purchase. We hope you all have a wonderfully blessed and safe holiday weekend. Happy Easter!
