Card Swap Deadline: December 3rd

Just a reminder to our 2022 Holiday Card Swap participants, please drop off your five cards before 5pm this coming Saturday, December 3rd. We’ve got a record number of twenty-one swappers this year, and based on the three or four early-bird drop-offs we’ve seen so far, the cards are more clever and beautiful than ever. By the way, if you make an optional 6th card, we’ll be proud to display it in the store for everyone to see and admire!

PS: The cards in the photo above feature Prima Marketing’s Candy Cane Lane collection, now available in-store.
