Thank you so much to all who have ordered! Bringing you a show update and a final reminder that THE LAST DAY TO ORDER FOR THIS SHOW AND HELP THE NICU FAMILIES IS MONDAY, 12/16/13. If you order by 12/18/13, you will still get your items in time for Christmas!
The items are truly beautiful and being the bargain-shopping aficionado I am, I can’t get over these Dot Dollars–basically if you spend $50 now, you get $25 to spend in January, so it’s like getting half of your money back. The real kicker? This is even good on gift card orders, so it’s like getting $75 to spend for only $50. Love it!
I have small ginormous attraction to Stella and Dot. It’s actually problematic because when I see the stuff, my heart starts to quicken and I may drool a bit. The gorgeousness is just that overwhelming.
In general I am not a fan of “parties”; any pressurized buying situation can be uneasy, but when the lovely and kind Valerie came to me and asked if there was a way we could team up together to help out a local charity for the holidays, this sounded cool. This may be one of the times having social media reach could be a nifty thing?
So we took the pressure out and set up an online trunk show (read: browse at your leisure and please honor the Mom of the Year classiness by staying in your pajamas while you shop) to benefit a cause that is near and dear to my heart.
Very dear friends of ours had their daughter in the NICU of a local hospital just two short years ago, and through their experience, we learned all too well what a difficult and taxing time this is for the whole family. Our friends are such neat people that they set up The Families of Chester County Hospital NICU fund. They wow me. You can read more of their story, see some pictures, and hear about the creative fundraising efforts they have already done HERE. While their daughter was in the NICU, they discovered how valuable help with practical things, like gas, babysitting for other children in the family, meals, and clothing for premies. This fund works to assist these families in a hands-on way by providing gas and grocery gift cards.
How can you help? Just click on this link and buy a piece or two (or a bunch!) of jewelry for someone on your list this year. Or treat yourself to a sparkly accessory for that holiday party and feel like a princess! It’s all beautiful, and it all helps families in need, as Valerie is sending a portion of all sales from this show to the NICU fund.
There are all kinds of specials going on to help you ace out your holiday shopping on the cheap. Check out some of the ads below, like the monthly specials (for every order over $50, purchase up to one OF EACH of the featured items for half off) and the Stock-Up Sale (buy any two items in that boutique and get the third half off).
Another bonus to ordering? Valerie is giving away a light bracelet (see beside) to one person who places an order through this show (chosen at random after show closes). While I am happy for you all to have a chance to win this, I’m also, quite honestly, very jealous, as I think it is a really fantastic bracelet. You can just order away; I’ll get over it.
I know you are probably “invited” to a million of these kind of shows/parties this time of year, but if you need to snag a gift, please pop by and grab something! Valerie is being so generous with the percentage of sales she donates, and I would love to be able to send a sweet check to The Families of Chester County Hospital NICU for the holidays. This time of year, it is especially hard to have your little one in the hospital instead of home with you, and how wonderful to be able to let these families know that they are thought of and cared for.
Thanks so much, friends, and happy shopping!
