Well it's that time of the year......November 1st marks the start of the official Holiday Shopping also marks Sweet Potato Awareness Month....and really, who doesn't love sweet potatoes? Especially at Thanksgiving! So it's time to get ready for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and don't forget, Cyber Monday (my personal fav!). Of course we will have special SALES for ALL 3 “holidays”, I use that term lightly! ;) In the meantime, take a moment to reflect on these fun facts in November 1st history… 1512, Michelangelo’s just-completed paintings on the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel were publicly unveiled...

Well September was a busy month. So sorry I skipped! Moved lots of things to clearance and added a ton of new items. Of course, much more to come. Gearing up for the holiday season.

All of these items are on sale right now 30-60% off, you can find ALL of them in the clearance section! Much love to all! Debbie <3

Accordingly, the name “ruby” comes from rubeus, the Latin word for red. In ancient Sanskrit, ruby translated to ratnaraj, which meant “king of precious stones.” These fiery gems have been treasured throughout history for their vitality.
