Mid Summer greetings!

This summer seems to be going by so quickly and August is going to be just as full as July has been. We are a little late this month as there were a lot of preparations to get the van ready for the Bancroft Gemboree last weekend

Brent and Carrie will be leaving early next week for Parrsboro and the Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show August 18-20.  They always look forward to being in the Maritimes and will enjoy seeing any of you if you are in the area. There will be new merchandise at the show but if you have any specific requests, try to let us know in the next few days so that we can make sure it gets in the van.

One of us read an interesting book recently about the development of the Vera Bradley line of merchandise in the United States. The author made one statement that really made us notice: sell yourself first. This goes hand in hand with the comment that people make judgements about you in less than 5 seconds when meeting you for the first time and then it takes a long time to change that opinion. We translate that into: “a unique piece of jewellery can make you stand out in a crowd”. We hope that gives you inspiration to try something exciting and beautiful just for you. We all deserve to give ourselves presents from time to time.

We all wish you the very best for the month of August!


Meredith, Irina, Brent and Carrie
