From now through the first week of December we are happy to be hosting a needlepoint trunk show from "Keep Your Pants On" designs. They specialize in University and team themed designs for the sports fan in your family. We have tons of different teams from all across the country that we don't usually have in the shop so now would be the best chance to look for a stylish new belt or terrific ornament for the tree. But you don't have to be into sports to find something in this trunk show. There are also great pillows with funny and clever sayings on them. Dog collars for the canine lovers out there. Also all month that the trunk show is here all "Keep Your Pants On" designs are 15%+ percent off.
