Open Late! Fourth Street Market! Special of the Week!

That's right!  The Paper Pickle is open late EVERY Wednesday this summer to coincide with the Fourth Street Market.  Store hours are 10am-8pm!  Market Hours are 4pm-8pm.  We are now in the second week of the market and I am so excited.  Why?  Well.....rumour has it that an amazing up and coming baker will be on the scene!  I bet you can guess who I am talking about!

Allow me to (re)introduce Homebaked Kitchen Company!  Homebaked Kitchen Company will be at The Fourth Street Market tomorrow!

And here is a photo of the proud entrepreneur in her certified kitchen!  Homebaked Kitchen Company is located in Jen Aitken's home.  Jen is my youngest sister!  You can find her contact information on facebook.  Like her page!  Just click this link to lead you to her page and more information!

To tell you the truth, I am not quite sure what Jen is whipping up for The Market.  All I know is that EVERYTHING I have ever tasted of Jen's has been unbelievable!  Now, you may say I am just a wee bit biased but really....I have never tasted such delicious cakes, cookies, cupcakes, tarts, etc.  Above is a pretty little cupcake.  Each and every ingredient is measured to perfection and is sure to please.

Homebaked Kitchen company will have her product offering cards and business cards tomorrow!  Gift certificates will also be available for any last minute teacher gifts!  I gave all our teachers gift certificates for 1 dozen cupcakes which they could redeem whenever they needed something a little special.

One Week Special

Well it has been a little while....but I think a little special is in order!

This week ONLY, ALL Smash Books are BUY 1, GET 1 50% off!  You all know how I feel about this product!  I have never given any product as much air time as these babies!  Pick one up for a teacher, a graduation gift, heck, how about one for yourself!  The Pickle has THE best selection!  

While on a roll, let's have another little special.....ALL 6x6 pads are BUY 1, GET 1 50% off for ONE WEEK ONLY!  Again, our selection is fabulous!!  I counted one day and we had over 30 different styles available!

BUSY, BUSY at The Pickle!

Is anyone else feeling busy right now?  If you don't see me on here regularly, you should just assume BIG things are happening!  Wow.  It has been one week since my last blog post but holy, I have so much to tell you guys!

Facebook - You've Got to Join
So last Friday, I posted this photo on The Paper Pickle Company's Facebook Page.  Did you see it?  Did you know this what our shipping and receiving department looked like on a gorgeous Friday night? 

Well, if you didn't, you are missing out!  Sometimes I post little photos and special facebook only sales on there because it is just too quick and easy!    Here is the link to our page (CLICK HERE).  Sign up today and NEVER miss out again!!

SO Many New Products to List!

Ok.  I really don't think you will find another paper craft store in Chatham who carries THIS many new products!  We are constantly bringing in stock!  Why?!?!?  Ummmmm.....because I am obsessed with beautiful and fun paper products!  Have you noticed?  

So these are the Ranger Dylusion sprays.  This is the first time we have ever carried this product.  I fell in love when a long time friend and customer, Caroline, came in with samples of her cards using the dylusion sprays and Memory Box BBQ die.  It is seriously awesome!  You can see it in the store for yourself.

Use these babies with masks, templates, on their own, etc.  Two FULL ounces in 18 different colours for $5.50.  So much fun!

This is just one of the many new items now at THE PICKLE!

 Signage is COMPLETE!

 Oh guys....I am so thrilled to have my signage complete at the new store!  It is SO adorable!  Why don't you come on by and check it out?!?

Fourth Street Market - TONIGHT!

So EVERY Wednesday from June 19 - August 28th, you can count on The Paper Pickle being open late!  The Fourth Street Market is happening and we don't want to miss out on the fun!  Come in and see all the excitement for yourself!!
