July 2009

It has been quite a while since the last post here at Lodge News. May flew by in a blur, I have no idea what happened to June and July is almost toast. Time really does go by faster and faster it seems.

The store has been struggling this last year ( as many small shops are) and sad to say, we still are just barely hanging on. We are having to look long and hard at what will be the fate of the store in this economy. Right now we are plugging away trying to make it work - a wing and a prayer as I like to say. Thanks to everyone for your continued support by making purchases and telling your friends about us.

The "Shop The Top Hop" went well with a slight increase of both shoppers and sales over last year. Thanks to everyone who participated! I thought the gift baskets this year were wonderful! The big winners this year were:

$50 GC - Geri Reimer from Trenary
$25 GC - Cheryl Kemmer from Escanaba
$25 GC - Helen Peterson from Wetmore

Here's the list of winners from the individual shops:

Fabric Patch - Jean Trudgeon, Ewen
Glenna's - Cyndi Couchene, Iron River
Donna Laine, Marquette
Brambleberry - Ruth Robinson, Bergland
Portage - Sally Koskinen, Baraga

Country Garden - Pat Gruber, Marquette

Pine Street - julie Morehouse, Baraga
Ben's - Teresa Ross, Escanaba.

Congratulations to all the winners and I apologize for not getting this out sooner.

I have had many, MANY requests for jewelry classes, but it seems that I never have enough time to put together something that would be fun to do! I am working on finding a fun project, so please don't give up! I have done a couple of birthday parties this last month and it is always so fun working with the kids! They make some crazy cool stuff.

Have a great summer!
