Once again it’s been an extremely busy Friday morning around here. There’s been a line to the door all day, and the lovely ladies pictured above have been hopping around. Somehow, wearing a cute dress makes it easier to smile at each of you, and to appreciate the nonstop pace. If you’re new to our store, we celebrate Dress-Up Friday. I know, the rest of you go casual on Friday, but we’re casual everyday, so we go fancy on Friday.
All of our customers are always complimentary on Friday, and it’s fun on this side of the counter too. Did you know that if you wear the wrong cute shoes, your heel can get stuck in the anti-fatigue mats? You go to take a step, and you’re caught in a rubber trap that doesn’t let loose without serious effort. Laughing at our missteps is fun for all of us, and our friendships are one of the reasons that we all enjoy working together. I might be rather biased, but I think we have the best employees anywhere!
Okay you all, we’ve got a fall giveaway for you. We’ve been extremely busy over here and I thought that this would be a good way to say thanks. You are the reason that we are in business–and besides, giveaways are just plain fun!
I put together a goodie basket this morning, and it’s displayed on the front counter if you would like to check it out. For those of you who can’t make it in, it contains: a green houndstooth ceramic travel mug, an Apricot Pineapple Tangerine Jam from Earth and Vine in Loomis, Lemon-Lavender shortbread from the McTavish company, a Cranberry Blood Orange Fair Trade Tea, two Organic Chocolates, and a pound of our Kona Extra Fancy. How does that sound?
In order to win the basket, you need to leave a comment on this blog post, or come on in and fill out an entry form. We’ll leave the contest open until next Monday–check back for a winner then. You can also check our facebook page for more information.
Edited:: The winner is Susan Otto! We added all the blog post comment entries to those that were filled out at the store, and drew her name out of the box. Thanks so much for all of your kind comments: we’ll have another giveaway to celebrate our wonderful customers soon, so keep an eye on our facebook page. –HF
This week we have a coffee for all of you dark roast lovers. You tend to get short shrift around here, since our dark roasts don’t change each week. In fact, I think that some of you early morning regulars would panic if we changed our number one or our number six: it was bad enough when we moved the pump pots three feet to the left. If your morning ritual is a strong, hot cup of our inkiest brew, you don’t want to see something else in its place.
