Small Business Saturday is today!

Join us on Saturday, November 24th
and celebrate all the wonderful creative local businesses in our community!

We are so fortunate that Charlottesville has such an abundance of artisans and  
unique and creative beautiful shops, galleries, vineyards, restaurants and specialty stores! 
All of them make up that wonderful spice that makes Charlottesville and its spectacular scenery 
even more special and enjoyable.

On Small Business Saturday, it is your chance to show those people who have chosen to share their unique vision of beauty how much they mean to you. They spruce up and invigorate your neighborhoods, create local jobs, and their local tax dollars are spent on your community - and so much more. Shop local this Saturday and celebrate!

Pooch Cards are coming

You might know by now that we LOVE well-made artisinal wares -- and how much we love animals! That's why we're SUPER excited to bring you POOCHCARDS this November!

"Dogs are arguably the most social creatures on earth, after all they befriended mankind and remain our most loyal followers. I created these cards for my dogs to be able to send greetings to their dog friends and today they have expanded to include people, who are just tired of ‘human holidays’ and are looking for something new to celebrate. Each card comes with a cheerful ribbon and memo on the reverse side for a special greeting, coordinating  mailing label with paper lined envelope and an embossed adhesive seal for closure." Bridget de Socio

(See, Titus is not the only canine who likes to send cards to his friends!)

Holiday Framing -- are you ready?

It's here, it's here: the season to decorate your world (and your dog...) with sparkles and glitter and ribbons and bows... and to go out and go shopping for gifts! 
I like to use the motto "one for you... one for me..." myself. I love it!

It's also time to think of special holiday framing. Every year I come up with a ridiculous list of great ideas, half of which I have to save for the next gift giving occasion because I always run out of time.

I guess what I am saying is: The sooner you bring your ideas in, the more time we can spend pondering great designs and frames for them... and the better the selection will be!
 And we all know: Santa does not like to be rushed when it comes to creating really beautiful things. 

If you have a wishlist of special order jewelry items from KiraKira or WHITLEY Designs, it is the perfect time to order those items as well and see them in person or show them off at all of your holiday gatherings!
