Kiss the Hog

Well kids it was -20* when I left home for a trip to St. James this morning. It had warmed to -4* by the time that I returned home. I need some global warming!

Christmas is here and everything is good, even for the hogs.

Merry Christmas to all and to all kiss a hog.

Christmas Sale on the Tundra

We had our December sale at Gypsy Lea's last weekend. The shop looked great. Gypsy wanted to recognize Christmas, but not overdo Christmas. I think a great balance was achieved. Sales on the first Thursday of the sale were fantastic. We had our best single day ever, with people lining up before the opening. I think our customers are starting to "get" the idea of an occasional sale. We are selling one of a kind items and once they are sold we are not going to pull another dozen identical pieces from the warehouse, like they do at Macy's. It was become important for many of our customers to get there early.

This is my favorite hog.

We opened our new Boutique
last month.
