February is well under way, and we have heard that
Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early spring as he did not see his
shadow on Groundhog Day (February 2). Of course, we will have to wait
to see the outcome of his prediction! In the meantime, we hope everyone
is staying cozy and safe as we look forward to the coming of Spring.
Here at the Shop we've received some welcome snow flurries and
wonderful new items coming in for the new season...and of course
we've been very busy preparing for our ANNUAL SALE! We welcome you to
join the fun: swing on by or visit us online to
see what's new!
