More Santa photos from Pufferbellies

I can’t stop! We’re having such a great time with our Santa visits this year, and I have a couple more sweet photographs to share. You have two more chances to see Santa at Pufferbellies before Christmas — this Friday, December 18 from 6PM to 8PM, and Sunday, December 20 from 1PM to 3PM. The Pufferbellies Santa experience is getting rave reviews from parents — there’s no waiting in line, no high-pressure photographer, just a gentle, relaxed visit with the man in red. Hope you can make it!

Must be Santa, must be Santa …

Yep, that’s right. Santa Claus will be making three more visits to Pufferbellies Toys & Books in downtown Staunton, Virginia between now and Christmas:

Sunday, December 13 (that’s today!) — 1PM – 3PM
Friday, December 18 — 6PM – 8PM
Sunday, December 20 — 1PM – 3PM

See you soon!

Santa Claus is coming to Pufferbellies

We’re so excited. For the first time ever, Santa Claus himself will be visiting Pufferbellies in downtown Staunton, Virginia, this December! Santa will be here on the following dates:

Sunday, December 6 — 1PM – 3PM
Friday, December 11 — 6PM – 8PM
Sunday, December 13 — 1PM – 3PM
Friday, December 18 — 6PM – 8PM
Sunday, December 20 — 1PM – 3PM

Our goal is to make this a relaxed, low-pressure time with Santa. Santa will visit with children one at a time in our book department, and parents are welcome to bring their own cameras to record the moment. Please note that there might be a wait to see Santa depending upon how many children arrive. We will assign everyone who wants to visit Santa their own number, and call them when it’s time. No standing in line, and plenty of opportunities to shop and play while you wait. All the children who visit with Santa will get a special treat from Pufferbellies, too.

We’re thrilled to welcome Santa to our store this year, and we can’t wait to see you here, too.

Game Night schedule

So, hey! We had great fun at Game Night last Friday. Erin S. and Emily taught us all how to play Backseat Drawing Jr., a fantastic family game that’s featured in our holiday catalog (watch your mailbox this week — the catalog is on the way).

We’ll be hosting our next Game Night on Friday, November 6th, from 6PM to 8PM. It’ll be pretty rollicking, since Erin S. is planning to feature Capture the Gag, one of her very favorite active games. The November Game Night will be the last one for 2009, though — in December, Pufferbellies will be playing host to a very special guest on Friday evenings. A little hint: our special guest will be flying in from way up north via an unconventional mode of transportation. Stay tuned for more details.
