Holiday Soiree coming up this Saturday at Pomegranate

We're spending the week putting up lights and digging out our little firepit/hand warmer, stocking up on mulling spices and cider (not to mention vodka, pomegranate juice and all sorts of libations and treats), flipping the store around to accommodate all the new arrivals (I'm still covered with popcorn and price tags and bits of ribbon), and making sure we have enough gift bags and ribbon to make all your presents look great. Yep, it's almost here: our annual Holiday Open House and Soiree (and day of giving back). Come join us this Saturday, December 4, for treats, fun, great local shopping, door prizes, and Robert's infamous Pometinis. Open House begins at 11am; cocktail soiree from 5-7:30.

It's also our big day to give back to the community: 10% of the day's revenues always go to a local charity. This year, our recipient is Family Access Network (FAN), for all the great work they do in connecting families to needed resources, and keeping kids in school. That last bit is near and dear to my heart. So, we hope you come shop, and mingle, and have a treat and a cocktail if you wish. We have all kinds of wonderful new items arriving daily for the open house, and are putting together some fun door prizes. Oh, and you get a gift of a darling christmas votive with purchase of $20 or more (pictured above). The shop is magical at night with all our twinkly lights (and perhaps some snow?); if you've never seen it after dark, you're in for a treat.

Hope to see you Saturday. Time to have fun, celebrate, and shop for a cause!

Refresh your tired eyes with Eye Candy {best new stocking stuffer, too}

Don't know about you, but this climate seems to make my eyes tired and dry and puffy all the time. Yech. Or maybe it's because my night owl tendencies make me stay up until the wee hours, working or reading or zooming the internet. To help us tired girls (and guys), here's the neatest new product we just brought in (such brainy entrepreneurs out there!): eye candy gel pads. Stick 'em in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes, then apply to closed eyes for an instant refresher. Reduces puffiness, cools and soothes, helps with headaches, too. Sure beats messy cucumber slices.

These are definitely going home with me. One set for the fridge; one set for my travel bag. These will be great for travel, as a matter of fact. I seem to always have a little reaction to new sheets/pillows when we stay at a hotel (maybe has to do with laundry products?). Maybe it's air conditioning, or dry air on planes. Whatever: my eyes are always puffy in the morning. Stick the eye candy pads in your ice bucket (or fridge, as long as you don't trip the mini-bar electronics!), and have a little spa moment.

It's a great girlfriend gift, stocking stuffer, addition to a nice little collection of french soaps and lotions...

Oh, and thanks to the girls at Eye Candy, we have a sweet package of spa goodies (with eye candy, of course) to give away as a door prize during our upcoming Open House & Soirée event this coming Saturday! More news soon.

We all need more toys: open today for your shopping pleasure

Here's Mollie, the award-winning Pomegranate shop dog (and our sweetest girl ever) at home with just a few of her toys (her latest fave is the fat hedgehog from Bend Pet Express). She'll be at the shop today with us from 11-4. Until Christmas, we're open on Sundays, too: come shop, enjoy some hot spiced cider and cookies (or a mimosa!), let us wrap all your gifts for you (no charge), and see what's new. See you there!
