Good morning everyone! A little reflective bit to share today ... and a selected variety of really nice little deals to ponder about.
I've been in the store, on my own, every day this past week because many of you out there are continuing to support us during this current reality we are all experiencing. I have spoken and communicated with many customers via email and on the phone about inquiries and purchases and as a small business owner - I cannot express how grateful I am that you are still watching our website and following through with a purchase or two ... or three. The thoughtful words and a simple "I've been thinking about how difficult this all must be for you" said out loud, is in fact, a blessing to hear. As crazy as that sounds, I am touched by the concern of you.
A wonderful customer called from Woodbridge yesterday and purchased 16 beautiful table top items from us - sight unseen. I was so excited and she was so grateful.
I was very relieved today to speak to one of the residents that lives above our store. She told me that they were being so well taken care of. The staff were sanitizing the hallways and frequented areas and that there are helpers onboard to grocery shop for them. We have been so worried.
Our staff have all been temporarily laid off and we miss them and their comradery but we know this is for the best. We understand the gravity.
Mr. Singing Lady and I have a good majority of family in Italy as I'm sure that many of you are keeping in touch with family and friends all over the world. We are keeping the world close to us and all of you, our customers and consignors, in our thoughts as well.
We continue to have some new arrivals daily as we did hold some merchandise back going into this.
I will be in the store Friday morning from 10am through to 3pm if something here grabs your attention. We are tucking all these purchases away for when we have the all clear for your visit to pick them up. I am flying solo once again - so be gentle on me :-)
Please leave us a voicemail if you are interested in something you see online. Better yet, send us an email and we'll get back to you very quickly.
To entertain you a little more this morning - enjoy the little Vlog feature of me in the store, in the dark - talking and sharing as Mr. Singing Lady asked me questions.

We thank you in advance for your shopping purchases - every single thing that finds a new home will in turn, help cover fixed costs of running two large retail spaces.
Be well but most importantly stay well!

It's official! Our new "Encore" reward card is a hit. Since we introduced it many of you have taken advantage of that additional 10% savings. When you spend $100 (pre-HST), receive an Encore card that you can redeem for an additional 10% off your next purchase. There is no registration required and you can even give it to a friend or family member. No muss, no fuss!
Every day, we get new arrivals — fabulous finds you won't find anywhere else. Here is a small sampling of the new arrivals from the last week but there are many more in the store. We currently have over 6,000 items in the store and it keeps changing all the time. Our motto is, "If you snooze, you lose!". If you see something you like, you had better snatch it up quick because there is a good chance it won't be there the next time you visit.
