Store Locator Map up to date!!

Did you know that we have a store locator map on our new web site?!!  We are all really excited about this.  In fact this is something we have wanted on our site for many many years.  Now customers can find the stores that carry our products with the simple point and click of the mouse.  This Google Maps technology is pretty awesome.  You can view our map by navigating from our website to the Store Locator tab or you can follow this handy link:  Practical Design Store Locator.

Or if technology is failing you try to cut and past one of these into your browser.

Heading to the Gift Show

So, the start of every year involves the frantic preparations for the January Gift Show.  Somehow I never feel prepared enough.  That being said my friend just pointed out that I always pull it off so I should just stop getting crazy.  We have done the buying, dye tested all the fabrics, cut and sewn samples, started working on the catalogue pages for our exciting new product and if a lot of moons align we may just get the new web site live!  Wow there has been a lot going on here this month.  I am excited to see you all at the show and can’t wait to introduce our new product.  Come out and say Hi!



Off to Toronto

I’m leaving today for the One of a Kind Show in Toronto. Tomorrow I start setting up for opening day Thurs Nov 26. Visit me in Booth F13. Check out our gift basket give-a-way and our new product “Feline Fortunes”, catnip filled fortune cookies.

One of a Kind Show

I am busy prepping for the next One of a Kind Show which takes a lot of time.  So does the rest of my life.  Do I have a life?  Well I have been running a company for 18 years.  I am a single parent.  I am caregiver to my father who had a stroke a while back and is not quite 100% anymore.  (In spite of that he is still near the top of my most important people list)  I have no idea how I am going to fit in writing a blog.  Nor do I have any idea what I might write about but here I am.  For now this is it.  Lets just say it will improve as I learn.
