Gypsy Lea's Does Zonta Christmas House

We are going to have a special sale at Gypsy Lea's this weekend. We are breaking our 4 days per month rule and having a special 2 day sale related to Gypsy Lea's participating as a decorator in the Zonta Christmas House.

Zonta Club is a charitable organization. They sponsor an annual decorated Christmas House as a fund raiser. They procure the use of a large house, get local businesses to decorate a room in Christmas finery and then sell tickets to tour the house.

Gypsy Lea's participated as a room decorator in 2008 and is going to do a room again this year. The open house is next Friday and Saturday. Kris, Kate and Gypsy are going to haul everything to the house on Friday morning and will have the room all spiffed up in time for the 3:00 PM opening.

Last year was our first Zonta Christmas House and we really didn't know exactly what to expect. We found out that we might be able to couple up our participation in the project with sales at the shop if we are open at the same time. So we are going to be open 3:00-10:00 on Friday and 9:00-6:00 on Saturday.

Kris and Gypsy, with significant help from Pete J. and Kate, will take responsibility for the set up and break down at the House. I will limit my participation to working the counter at the store during the two days of the sale. A business has to keep its eyes open for an opportunity and we are all hoping that the Zonta House exposure will open our shop to new customers who will be back for our regular sale dates.

Oh - I bet you do WONDERFULLY with your special sale! What kind of goodies are you hauling in for it? I love the holiday homes! I like it that the Zonta Club supports so many other programs! Are you going to sweet talk one of the crew to take pictures of the Christmas House room? I can't wait to see!
