Small Business Saturday; EXPO SHOW Update

Here at rhubarb reign, we LOVE all our retail customers -- boutique owners from five states who not only keep us in business, but never cease to dazzle us with their individual creative vision. How can you not love a wonderful shop, carefully edited, full to the brim with eye candy and excellent ideas?

We heartily endorse Small Business Saturday, coming up this weekend. Remember as you are planning your holiday shopping to get out and support all your wonderful local businesses!

These photos were taken over the weekend as we restocked SoBo Style, in Columbus, Ohio. Katie has worked her holiday magic all over the store. One of my favorite twists is that so many of the holiday goodies can be used way beyond the Christmas season. Just one example -- Katie already sold an entire window-full of garland to a bride-to-be, who is saving it to use for her June wedding. A little multi-purposing never hurts any one's budget! After the wedding, the newlyweds will be able to use the garland again and again. What a great idea.


This week, Joe and I are getting ready for the season opener of the DuPage Expo Show, coming up this weekend in St. Charles, Illinois. We have LOTS of surprises in store, so please check back later in the week for details. Remember to print out this page and bring it along for HALF-OFF your regular admission, courtesy of Zurko Promotions.

Over the weekend, we also restocked at Midland -- click our Facebook link to take a peek! Tomorrow, I am headed to fluff our space at Mishawaka Antiques (another great small business -- hint, hint!) New stuff was posted Friday on our etsy store, too. Whew! Happy Thanksgiving -- and happy holiday shopping! xo
