Know what else is "music to our ears"? Having new customers walk in saying a friend recommended our store! WOW!! We are very appreciative of the talk about town, about our store and all we offer.

On another note (haha) did you happen to catch the Consignment article in the Marin IJ? Stephanie was quoted, how fun!


No Sour Notes Here:

We love when people ask for something and we have it! Don't be afraid to ask, we just might have what you're looking for. If we don't have it but think it may come in, we'll ask you to leave your name and number on our Wish List so we can contact you.

Winter is coming (after this strange "summer" passes!) and we are asking for Rain, Snow gear. We are stocking racks with sweaters, jackets, cords, long sleeves but of course we still have clothing appropriate for these last warm days such as sun dresses, shorts, tees, swimsuits.

Ahhhhh Friday!

What a great week it was!

We established a relationship with Canal Community Alliance and now more of the local community will be receiving donations through our store (from YOU!). It's exciting to find homes for all the items brought to us for donation or those which go to donation because we can't accept them.

August Sales are off to a great start:
* 25% off all girls' dresses (Ralph Lauren, Gap, Gymboree, Hanna Andersson, etc)
* 10% off strollers (Peg Perego, Graco, Baby Jogger, BOB, etc) and backpack carriers (Kelty, REI, etc)
* Maternity & Nursing - buy 2 get 3rd half off

The Back to School Sale wrapped up nicely! We will continue to maintain a Sale Rack in the store; items to be rotated frequently. Cooler weather jackets and clothing are being accepted (see Accepting This Week) and are coming onto the racks.

Check out the current Pacific Sun newspaper and find our ad for 10% off purchase!! Now that's the way to end the week ;-)
