From now through December 19 we will be collecting your donations of new women’s bathrobes, pajamas, and slippers — all to benefit women served by Lazarus House Ministries. We started this donation tradition in 2007 when we first opened our store in North Andover. We wanted to do something special for the holidays and during conversations with Lazarus House staff we learned that moms staying with their children at Lazarus House shelters during December worry most about how they are going to provide their kids with holiday presents. We want to provide these moms with something nice too. The “wish list” includes new warm bathrobes, nightgowns or pajamas, and slippers of all sizes. Donations can be dropped at our Andover store during store hours. (Mon-Sat 10-5, Thurs evenings til 7, or Sunday 12 to 5). We will have a kickoff reception on Thursday as part of the Downtown Holiday Stroll. Join us for refreshments, promotions, and a benefit raffle. We will donate all raffle proceeds to Lazarus House to help with last minute holiday gifts for its clients.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!!
HERE COMES THE SUN! It’s SUMMER. We are trotting out brighter colors, garden items, and jewelry that will make you want to grab a sunhat and sit outside. We can’t wait to share our fabulous new finds with you. HOORAY!
Here’s one of the more unusual new offerings at our stores: A Spoonk mat!
Huh? It may look scary, kinda like a bed of nails, but it works. The Spoonk acupressure massage mat is an innovative wellness tool. It resembles a yoga mat, but has over 6,000 plastic spike pressure points which stimulate nerve endings to increase circulation. Based on shiatsu massage principles, the Spoonk helps relieve muscle tension and pain, boosts energy levels, and provides a sense of calm and relaxation that markedly improves sleep. Not kidding. At first it may be daunting to lie down on the Spoonk, but once you do, your body relaxes so much you just might drift off to sleep. Dr. Oz loves it. Oprah loves it. We love it. Spoonks come in a number of fun organic cotton colors. $60.
