Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

     Wanted to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.  Also want to thank everyone for an amazing 2018, even with having to close the store temporarily we have grown tremendously.  The beginning of 2019 is going to be slammed, we have the Manatee County Fair coming up mid Jan, Carlisle Crop coming up the end of Jan, Stampfest in Feb & Shop Hop in March.  Also on that note lots of new stuff has come in & more will be arriving. 

Below is a listing with detail of what is coming up:

 Shop Hop 

    I am selling bags now!!!  New this year if you purchase your bag before Jan 19 you will be entered in to win a $25.00 gift card. Please see info below to purchase.   There are 7 stores in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas from  to St. Pete and Springhill to Englewood that participate. The shop hopper’s job is to visit every store any time from March 15th to March 23rd. In order to do this, you will first need your bag which will include your passport, beads, and album. These can be purchased with Nancy at Lady Bugs and will be available for pick-up at a future date.

Once the Shop Hop begins, you will need to visit each store. At each store, you will need to spend a minimum of $5.00 in order to receive your stamp in your passport. With participation in the Shop Hop, you will receive a 10% discount at every store, a stamp in your passport, a tag for your beads, and a 6×6 scrapbook page for your album. Every store will also have make ‘n takes for you, there will be different make ‘n takes on different days at different stores and all you need is a passport to participate! We encourage everyone to hit every store on the hop but even if you cannot, you should still purchase a tote and go to the stores you can, there is lots of fun waiting for you. Each store will have a great photo op as well so we encourage everyone to dress up and have fun with it.

Once your passport is filled with all the store’s stamps, you turn it in to any of the participating stores to be entered in the drawing. The grand prize winners (randomly drawn from all the completed passports) wins a $50 (2) or a $25 (4) gift certificate from ALL the participating stores. Plus there will be other prizes and a prize from the store you turned your passport in to, there will be lots of chances to win.

The Shop Hop is so much fun for everyone and we hope you will all participate, give Nancy a call (941) 580 8936 if you have any questions or would like to purchase your bag.  New this year if you purchase your bag before Jan 19 you will be entered in to win a $25.00 gift card.  Since the store is still under construction please  send a check to 27450 SR 64 E, Myakka City FL or call Nancy & provide your CC info to hold your bag.  If you send a check please provide your phone # so I can confirm I received your check.  This year you will be able to carry your bags with you & you can enter to win a prize for best bag.
