Oshkosh Police K-9's Fundraiser

Saturday November 2nd, we will be hosting the Oshkosh Police's K-9's, both dogs will be here from 6p-8p during Gallery Walk.

Caramel Crisp will donate all food proceeds to the K-9's.  Make sure to stop in and have supper and grab some goodies for the road.  The K-9 program is a donor funded program and a vital part of the safety of our community.

 

Corporate Gifts!

 Now is the time to start thinking about corporate gifts. We have a variety to choose from, do you want cookies, we can platter, box or put them in a gift tin.  How about popcorn, we can put it in a holiday tin and ship it almost anywhere.  We also have these stunning gift baskets, they are really a "wow" gift.  You can put almost anything in them, pricing starts at $25.  Stop in and place your holiday order today!

New longer hours!

Hours of operation is always a challenge for any small business, you want to be open long enough for your customers to be able to get to you, but need to close at a time as to not be throwing money out the window in payroll.  It is always a struggle.  Recently we made the decision to make our closing time more uniform, and we now close at 7:30pm six nights a week, the gift shop is also open until 7:30pm during the week.  We hope these longer hours will help make downtown a shopping friendly destination.  I hope you make a point to come visit downtown Oshkosh!

Inspirational Gifts

With the expansion of the gift shop, we are able to also expand into a few more varieties of gifts we did not carry before.  Our newest catagory we have added is Christian and Inspirational Gifts.  This area is new so it will take a while to grow as we continue our search for the gifts that are the quality of what we carry.  However we do already have a small selection of First Communion, Baptism and Confirmation gifts available.  We will be working vigirously on buying for this area as we continue our search for high quality gifts.

The Luck of the Irish!

Now heading into March we are looking at Yummy treats to take us  to St Patrick's day!  Green, Hmmmm...How about double chocolate mint Cupcakes, Key Lime cupcakes and of course Pistachio cupcakes :)  

As for cookies, we will need to bring out the Shamrock sugar cookies, Pistachio & Cranberry Cookies and of course Green Peanut Blossoms to name a few.

Unfortunately at this time I am struggling with St Patrick's Day decor, hopefully by next year I will find a cute supplier that meets my expectations.  We do have adorable Easter decorations, and since Easter is so early this year stop in and get ready for Easter!

January....

Ahhh, 2013, how I am excited to see you arrive, so much to look forward to this year!  

With Christmas behind us, our first Christmas with the newly expanded gift shop too...we are now in the process of making a room filled with Christmas year round!  Since opening the gift shop back in May, we have not had a lot of opportunity to get too creative with displays, mostly just working on getting the gift shop set up...now with January here, life slows down a little allowing us time to do some much needed problem solving!  So, first...Year round Christmas area :)

Let us know if there is anything we don't ahve that you would like us to carry and we will see what we can do!

HoHoHo!

Ah, my favorite time of the year, so many people out and about everyone is always so chipper and looking forward to the holiday's...all the fun treats that come with the holidays too!

Tis' the Season

With Halloween over everything goes into Christmas mode, unfortunately retailers overlook Thankgiving.  I can share that the only reason we overlook Thanksgiving in decorating as it takes us from Halloween to Thanksgiving to get Christmas decorations done!  I wish Santa would borrow me some of those magic elves!
