As seen in

We regularly read magazines and peruse catalogs to see if any of the products we carry are featured in them. Recently we've come across a number of catalogs that carry the lovely dainty flutes & glasses that we recently carried. And they all have a way bigger price tag on them than we do.

But we just came across a catalog the other day that takes the cake in over-the-top pricing. I will not tell you who it is, but I will show you a snapshot from their website.

Do you recognize those decanters? We currently have the White Wine decanter on display here at the shop (we sold the Red Wine). Now do you see the price this website has for it? That's right you read it correctly, $94. Guess how much we're selling it for .... $29!

Now ours doesn't come in a fancy wooden crate like the one above does, if you buy it here, we will wrap it a nice Joli bag with pretty tissue and ribbon. And we won't charge you for that. And ours is $29 not $94 (plus shipping).

Just another reason to shop locally, right?


 PS Our Semi-Annual Sale is almost over. Stop in this week to save 20-75%!

Easy Entertaining Tips

Are you entertaining a lot this month? Here are some quick and easy suggestions that we've found work beautifully ...

1. Pick up a couple bottles of wine, a brick of cream cheese, crackers, and ginger cookies at the grocery store.

2. Stop at Joli and pick up some of the Bella Cucina Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto and one of the Sweet Key Lime, Blood Orange, or Lemon Spreads (50% off right now). Don't forget some paper plates and festive napkins.

3. Pour the Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto over cream cheese, and serve with crackers.

4. Serve the ginger cookies with one of the Sweet Spreads.

5. Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit down, and relax with your friends!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?!

Wondrous Wednesday

We shopgirls are pretty busy. With one of us being a full-time Mama plus Shopgirl and the other one being a Nana and Shopgirl, we're pretty much never available to visit our favorite shops during business hours. And gettting our hair done ... you should see the juggling act it takes to fit that in!

So as we were heading up to Pennsylvania recently for a last-minute/emergency visit, we started discussing how we feel bad for the many others in the same boat as us. How do they get their shopping done? Especially at this time of year?

And that's how we came up with Wondrous Wednesday. We're going to stay open until 7:00 tonight to give all of you busy ladies (and men) a chance to shop your favorite (c'mon, you know we're at least in your top 10 .... right??) local shop without being in a rush.

Leave the kids at home (properly supervised, of course), and head on over. Have a glass of wine. Try some delicious goodies from Dr. Pete's. Let us show you around the shop and help you out with your gift-giving needs. We've got a variety of gifts in a variety of price ranges. Plus, we've got a number of items on sale ... up to 75% off! How can you pass that up?

And if you can't leave the kids at home, bring 'em! We'll keep them entertained so you can look around.

If ya'll like this, we'll keep it going for the next few weeks. So please stop by tonight. We hate to drink alone ;)

The Cutest Chef Ever

A couple months ago, I met the gorgeous Miss Grace. She was a delight (and so were mom and grandmother). She flitted through the shop admiring all of our trinkets, and then she saw something she had to have. One of our fabulous vintage-inspired children's aprons. Her grandmother kindly purchased it for her, and I (not so tactfully) asked Miss Grace's mom if she'd mind sending us a couple pictures of Grace and the apron in action.

She did, and I've gotta say, she's the cutest chef ever (and I have a pretty cute chef of my own. Well, two if you count my husband).

Tell, me, is she not perfect??

Thanks, Miss Grace, for letting us share your pictures (and a big thanks to Mommy)!

Have a great weekend, ya'll!

Hey ya'll. Yes, we're still here. We shopgirls have been super busy, and have tons of new merchandise, which we hope to share with you here on the blog soon. But in the meantime, I thought I'd share this awesome time-lapse video that The Digitel did of Habersham's Second Annual Harvest Festival (which was terrific, by the way) ...

Enjoy it, and check back soon for new merchandise features (I promise)!
