Family photos are priceless treasures that deserve being showcased in frames worthy of the memories. Today’s contemporary, chic and fantastically fun frames are making statements all their own — while enhancing the photos they hold. Whether your customers desire an antiqued, whitewashed frame in muted colors with a subtle design, or a brightly colored frame with festive polka dots and ribbon embellishments, they’ll find Feel Good Frames, Posh Pics, Smile for the Birdie and Ribbit-Ribbit are the pièce de résistance in frames.
“I’m bored,” is a common complaint heard in most households with children. What the kiddos are really saying is, “I want something new to do!” Kids crave activities that engage their fertile imaginations. When young children are given the gift of reading, they have “other worlds” to explore for the rest of their lives. The Giggle Guide® has found some fantastic children’s literature and accessories to help beat the boredom and make reading a pleasure. A well-rounded young reader’s corner in your store keeps families returning for additional page turners. You can even start a book club to reward and motivate kids to read more!

But this year, what makes this month twice as special for us is that we will also be celebrating the launch of No Slippy Hair Clippy’s brand new look!
We’ve been working really hard on our grand website makeover lately. And with just a few finishing touches here and there, we’re excited to show it to you soon!
Last week, we wrote about a lovely review of No Slippy Hair Clippy from mom-and-dad bloggers Chad and Gena of Our Journey Through Parenthood. In their review, the doting parents wrote about little Taryn wearing her new No Slippy Hair Clippys.
We finally got Chad and Gena’s permission to share with you photos of dear Taryn! If you’d like to see the entry itself, you may visit their blog here!

The store is fun, funky, wild, original and a celebration of all things that are hipper, cooler, trendier, edgier and as unique as children’s individual personalities and creative outlooks.
I’ve always thought bangs are cute. So I had my hair cut to have bangs on them. Then it turns out my forehead doesn’t think they’re so cute after all.
