Spring Cleaning~Martha to the Recsue!

I need to start spring cleaning! Where do I start? I did not want to think too hard, so who better to ask for assistance than Martha Stewart? As always she came through with a three page down and dirty spring cleaning list of where to get started and other cool tips! I know, who really wants to do spring cleaning anyway? NO ONE or maybe just my lazy self! This is actually something I deferred for over 10 years of spring seasons past. However, I moved into a new place in October, I now have a little organization in my life and the job does not feel like eating a large barbequed (time to clean the grill also) dinosaur with a small spoon. My new life of yearly spring cleaning begins in 2010 and never to end (I know it rhymes, which is nerdy, but I cannot help myself :) !)

Brighton! Need We Say More!

YES! Both Ivy Ridge locations have been approved as new Brighton Jewelry locations. This is a huge honor because Brighton has been become very particular about approving new accounts. We completed a huge application as well as photographs of each shop and were thrilled to be approved. We will now begin the process of receiving the 8 feet display for the North Wilkesboro shop as well as inventory. After that location is complete and Brighton in place, we will begin to work on our Elkin location. If you would like to be the first to know when Brighton arrives, just give us a call at the shop and we will take your information and call everyone when it hits the door!

Finally a Fashionable Pool & Beach Cover Up!

How about a azula to go with your saress?!

Now that question sounds goofy, but they are a great combination if you understand what they are! Azulas go perfect with our saresses (beach cover-ups). A azula is a nylon waterproof circle you place on the side of a pool to protect your $80 to $200 bathsuit from snagging while sitting. $14.99 retail in cool colors including zebra and a pink flip flop design.
