Just wanted to give you a heads-up that since the month has changed, so has our Shop Sundays for a Cause donation recipient. This month it’s the Family Resource and Referral Center. These folks do great work for kids, families, and childcare providers here in our community, and if you shop at Puferbellies on a Sunday in January, 10% of the amount you spend will go straight to them.
It’s been a quiet week at Lake Pufferbellies … well, you know what I mean. It’s been peaceful and relaxing and we’ve been cleaning, organizing, and getting ready for a wonderful 2008. We do have some cool things in the works — I’m in the midst of wrapping up the details on the Warren H. Drumheller Memorial Book Drive. All the custom bookplates are printed, and I hope to have the books delivered to the librarians this week. I’ll also post some photos and a final tally of books here when the task is complete.
Susan is working with local photographer Lori Taibl on a project called “Picture Yourself at Pufferbellies.” Would you like your photo to appear in a Pufferbellies ad or window display? I’ll announce details here soon!
And, of course, all the new toy catalogs are rolling in. I am planning a few notable improvements to our inventory, including MORE PLAYMOBIL by popular demand. I will be heading up to Toy Fair in New York next February to check out all the new stuff in person, too.
