I said yesterday that I would spend most of today working on new items that have been announced. And by mid-afternoon, I haven’t spent a second on them. Instead, I have spent most of the day taking pictures – editing pictures – posting pictures – and building and loading a page on our site to show off everything that will be happening during the Marco’s Fall Spectacular in our store in Dayton from September 26 thru October 2. It’s a week of specials and make & takes and classes and such, topped off by a trunk sale and sidewalk sale in our parking lot on Sunday, October 2.
And as I worked on them, I was impressed by how talented our people are. So I decided to share their work with you – if you live near here, some of these creations might just tempt you to pay a visit to our store in a couple of weeks. And if you don’t, I still think you’ll be impressed as well – and you might even pick up a few ideas.
Here is a sampling – and if you click on this link, you can see a lot more . . .
A lot of these are Free Make & Takes presented by our store regulars – others are part of classes being held during the week. One of these was actually created by – gasp! – a man. And every one of them has something that you can’t get from a Hallmark card – the uniqueness and love that only comes from something handmade.
The page on our site dedicated to the Fall Spectacular isn’t finished yet – more projects will be added as the samples are completed. But I invite you to take a few minutes to look through them – and to stop back later in the month to see what else might inspire you.
