1st Anniversary

To celebrate the end of our first year in business, we are featuring our coffee beverages and will have mocha's, latte's and hot chocolate at HALF PRICE. We will have free regular coffee (for in shoppe customers). Plus we have fresh, home baked orange scones, nanaimo bars, date bars and magic bars to go with your coffee or hot chocolate.

Our soups of the day are chili and homemade chicken noodle with dumplings. You can choose a bread bowl or cheese panini to go with that.

Most Christmas related items will be 50% off. A few Christmas items have special discounted prices marked.

Cure the cabin fever blues, by stopping in, sign up for door prizes and check out some new spring merchandise. Once you've made your selection of non sale items to purchase, you will be able to pick a paper with a percent off marked on it. (of course, no peeking). Discounts will be from 10 to 25% off.

1st Anniversary

This weekend (specifically Saturday) we will celebrate our one year anniversary of the Corner Shoppe. It was about a year ago that we had our "official grand opening" even though our first day of business (if you can call it that) was in November.

This weekend we will offer chili and homemade chicken noodle soup with dumplings with a toasted cheese sandwich or bread bowl.

We also have a new line of teas in the following flavors: Cherry Berry Twist Herbal Tea, Chai Black Tea, Wild Raspberry Rose Herbal Tea, Lemon Green Tea, Peppermint Herbal Tea, and Sweet Orange Black Tea.

More to follow about tomorrow's specials....

January Events

Although we are already into January, I am finally getting the months events posted.

Senior citizen day is this Friday, January 7th.
January 12th is knitting & stitching day from 10 to noon. Last Saturday Lanny took me to the Stagecoach Yarn shop in Manchester (where I had received 2 gift certificates for Christmas) and I had my first brief lesson in "casting on " stitches. I learned I was "all thumbs" when it comes to that task!!

The last Friday of the month, the 28th, is frugal Friday, where customers age 59 and under get a 10% discount on merchandise.

Last but not least, on January 22nd we will have a ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! I can't believe we have been open for business over one year (actually opened the day after Thanksgiving, 2009). We will have special prices on our latte's, mocha's and specialty coffees, plus door prizes and other in shoppe specials.

We go to market on January 10th, so prepare for some new things and new looks at the shoppe.
