LET THE FUN BEGIN....

What fun you ask....why the Sleigh Ride thru Zionsville and Hereford of course !!! Coming this weekend December 4, 5 and 6th, three other stores join us with a pretend Sleigh Ride Event...(if you knew how many times I have been asked what do we do if we don't have snow???) Yikes.....I am embarrassed to explain it is ALL PRETEND !! However, this is our fourth annual Sleigh Ride Event where we hand out flyers with a printed sleigh - each store must be visited and your "sleigh" stamped - when all 4 stamps are had you leave the sleigh in whatever store is your last visited to go into a big old pot for a drawing to win one of 6 gift certificates - $100., $50. and four $25. certificates. If you win you can choose any one of the stores to spend your gift in !! Each store does something special - Friday and Sunday we will have special treats - Christmas cookies, soup and dips BUT on Saturday Mr. Elf Tony will don his "Santa's cap" and prepare "Hot Pockets" for everyone!
Hot Pockets"An olde English tradition of keeping your hands warm while Christmas shopping in the early 1800's. In merry olde England street vendors would sell "potatoes", well baked, to passing shoppers - shouting "hot pockets"~~~Customers would purchase the potatoes placing them in their pockets thus keeping their hands warm while they shopped..
Of course our "potatoes" will come with all the trimmings - sour cream, chives, cheese and lots of butter !! Tony will have the Popcorn machine popping away and Hot Cocoa with marshmellows, if you so desire, will be at the ready!
This is a fun weekend of partying - Miss Holly Wintertree will be joining us...I must take a picture when she arrives.....
The picture is of Mr. Elf Tony last year.....this year we are moving him to the front porch where we will have more room (since we still have that big old feed bin for sale on the back porch)... I even have a new "velvet" Santa hat for him...shhhhh it is a surprise!
Oh and I have to tell you!!! ...my store mannequin got her "wings".....I am so happy for her..!!!
