- Beautiful lightweight scarves. These are great for summer and at $14.00 each they offer great value. They come in a variety of patterns and colors.

Well I've been back from the Gift and Tableware Show held in Toronto for several weeks now but haven't had time to update my blog until now. The show was great, very inspiring. I loved seeing all of the new color trends for 2010 such as Blues, Greens, Greys and Purples. With an emphasis on going "green" more natural tones such as Beige and Mocha Brown are also coming back into play. I did several new product orders for spring and summer and even a couple for Christmas. Below is a sample of some of the new products recently arrived at the store:
Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
