The notecard sets are adorable--each has 12 cards (6 each of 2 designs) and 13 envelopes. They're packaged in a recycled box with no acetate--easy to recycle when you're done with them.

You know how your skin gets in the winter? The cracking hands and feet, dry lips, the flaky bits on the tip of your nose. . . okay, I'll stop now. You get the picture. This Organic Soothing Stick is great for all those severely dry places, and it's paraben-free. It's a great portable size--fits easily in your pocket, purse, or diaper bag.
I have testers out, some come by and try these products--you won't be disappointed!

The fingerless mittens have multiplied over the Summer--come check out the new colors and styles! There are ones with thumbs now too! These were my go-to gloves all year last year. For indoors or out, these rock! Great for wearing while crafting or computing--any winter activity that makes your digits chilly.

I have been a fan of Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops since I got them to pass out on Halloween last year, so this year (at the suggestion of a friend) I got big bags of them to sell, so you, too can pass out the world's best candy on a stick! I also have single ones for sale if you just want to try them. Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops are made with no high fructose corn syrup and they are:
- Gluten Free
- Cerified Organic
- 100% Naturally Flavored
THANKS (that's a big thanks) to everyone who came out for Oktoberfest! It was the biggest and best one yet--I've gotten great feedback from everybody who came out. The organizers did a great job this year!

It starts today! Berwyn's 9th annual Oktoberfest will be bigger and better than ever this year! They've added crafters and vendors on Grove by Stanley Avenue, tons more stuff for the kids, and new this year: Dogtoberfest! Of course there will be the carnival, two stages of music, and tons of food. Oh yeah, and it wouldn't be Oktoberfest without beer, would it?
Two bands I have to plug (because they're local and I sell their CDs) are The Boogers--on the kids' stage twice on Saturday, and Hurricane Gumbo at 5 on the Main Stage on Saturday. Yes, Hurricane Gumbo is my husband Jon's band, and they are so much fun for people of all ages! Click on the title of this post for the official website of this awesome event.
We'll be open late--until the last shopper goes home. I'll be sampling 3 flavors of the dip mixes: Heavenly Horseradish, Loaded Potato, and the very spicy Habanero and Green Chile. I hope you can come out and enjoy the great weather and all the fun stuff the Oktoberfest Committee has provided. As always, Oktoberfest is free of charge!

There was an old TV (soon to be rendered obsolete by the high definition changeover June 12th, and it doesn't work anyhow). I think my tinkering husband thought that maybe he could fix it. Well, he didn't, so we went online and found out that Best Buy will recycle old televisions. So we threw it in the van.
Also there was an old computer desk that we never liked and hardly used. Threw that in the van, too. We took that to Goodwill. The attendant there saw the TV and said they aren't taking those, but we told him we were taking it to Best Buy and that he should refer people there if they try to donate one. They're within a mile of each other, so I think it wouldn't be a problem for people. We also had a bunch of spent batteries, which Best Buy also took.
Other things we found we listed on Freecycle.com, or gave in response to posts on there. I have found that people will take almost anything you post on that site. That's how I get rid of all my shipping boxes for the store. There's always somebody moving! Later Sunday evening a lady from a local veteran's group called to see if we had any clothing to donate--that they were going to be in our neighborhood today. So there's a bag of clothes on our porch right now. It feels good to get rid of stuff that you're not using! And I'm hoping that there's a karmic payback for not holding on to my "just in case" crap. If I ever need anything, I will post it on Freecycle under wanted.

I've got Mother's Day cards (even ones from the dog and the cat), new candles, new jewelry, and all the regular stuff too. I've gotten in all sizes of the Berwyner T-shirts, as well, so come on over and get something for Mom (or yourself)!
Here are a couple of the new candles I just made this morning:

For all pet owners, these window stickers are vital. Every fireman who has come into my store says that these are noticed immediately and are very helpful to them for knowing to look for your pets in case the unthinkable happens. This is the one product that I sell that I hope never gets used.

I only sent it to the local folks, but if you're out of town and would like a copy, just leave a comment, and I'll send it out to you (also leave your email address if I don't have it already). I'm working on the website and hoping to have a shopping cart feature and products soon. If you see something here on the blog (or in an email) and would like to order it, you can--just call me and we'll work it out. 708-484-7899
