Sophie’s Super Savings Club!

Those of you who were members of the ‘Frequent Shoppers Club’ in the old store; your cards have been carried over.  With one small exception.  At the end of each year, cards with only ONE purchase on them will be discarded.  I was just getting too many ‘onsies’ filling up my file box.

Those of you who are new to the store, here’s the scoop:

To join Sophie’s Super Savings Club, just ask at the counter with your next purchase.  I will fill out a card for you with your name on it.  I keep the cards and track your purchase amounts, so you don’t have to to anything except shop and earn points!

The point system awards you points per dollars spent.  ALL regular priced purchases earn points.  (Already discounted purchases do not earn points, because you are already getting a discount on them.)

When you have reached 100 points, you can redeem your points for a 10% discount on your entire regular priced purchase.  (not on just one item, but your ENTIRE purchase!)  OR . . . .

You can let your points accumulate to 200, for a 20% discount.  OR  . . . . .

You can let your points accumulate to 300, for a 30% discount!

Once you have redeemed a discount, those points are subtracted from your card and you start working on your next discount.   How easy is that?!?!?!

BIRTHDAY BONUS FOR SAVINGS CLUB MEMBERS:

Have me jot down the month and day of your birthday on your Savings Club Card, and you will get a 20% discount on your entire regular priced purchase for your birthday . . . AND double points on your card!  Remember, you usually don’t earn points on discounted purchases, so this is a great opportunity to rack up some points for a bigger discount later!

Now I know that your birthday can be a busy time, so if you can’t get in during your birthday week, you can still use your birthday discount another time.  Since I make a notation on your shoppers card when you do use your birthday discount, I’ll know if you have or haven’t yet used it already, SO you can pretty much use it ANY time, as long as it’s just once a year!

HAPPY SHOPPING & HAPPY SAVING!!!

Vintage glass Christmas balls

Love the look of them, but hate to use them on my trees because they break so easily!  Here’s what I did with a bunch of them I got at a recent estate sale, using inexpensive glass jars purchased at the craft store:

Sophie’s favorite color Christmas tree PART III

CHRISTMAS 2007

One turquoise tree just wasn’t enough for Sophie!  Here’s the second one!

Closer view of the topper:

I couldn’t find giant turquoise ornaments, so I painted them myself!

Jars and bowls full of more ornaments under the tree:

Are you inspired yet?!?!?!

Sophie’s favorite Christmas color PART II

CHRISTMAS 2007

Sophie’s favorite color Christmas tree!

CHRISTMAS 2007

Sophie just LOVES this metallic lime green Christmas tree with turquoise and aqua ornaments!

The blue and green garlands set the tome for the color theme of the tree.  They would look great draped across a mantle or swagged across a window too!

Closer look at some of the ornaments:  (are those turquoise feather ball ornaments FABULOUS or what?!?!)

The painted cutout wood words and glitter stars add varying textures to the tree:

A blue tin star on the top and a BIG glittery twisty vine thingy up the center of the tree.  I really like adding ‘one big thing’ to the front and center of trees for more interest.

Mistletoe Princess doll:

A basket full of pretty beaded ornaments:

A few gift items nestled under the tree. 

A lime green bottle brush tree:  (I SO love the way lime green plays off the varying shades of turquoise!)

Giant sized green ball ornaments and pale aqua tin stars:
