FASHION and The CITY - September 5

You are invited to THE premier event of the year!  

Fashion and The City is happening on Thursday, September 5th from 6-11pm.  The night begins with a fashion show at The Capitol Theatre followed by the most incredible block parties downtown Chatham has EVER seen!  And you know what's SO cool...all events are FREE!

Last year I attended and could not believe that in it's first year in Chatham, the event drew more than 8,000-10,000 people all to the downtown core!  The night was filled with visiting, shopping, eating, sampling, photo booths and more!  I was NEVER more proud to call Chatham my home!

The Chatham Daily News writes:  More than 40 Vendors to Participate

Click the link to see what the local newspaper is saying about this incredible event!

The Pickle - A Fashionable Destination
I am thrilled to have The Paper Pickle Company participate in this year's event!  Why, The Paper Pickle is certainly a trend setter when it comes to being the first to bring the latest the paper crafting industry has to offer so it only made sense to get involved!!

The Pickle - What to Expect
Why visit The Paper Pickle on Thursday, September 5th?  Well there are so many reasons!  I think I can share a few of our plans but leave it to us to keep you guessing!
  • We have paired up with Dekoko's to bring you only THE hippest street party

  • Live Entertainment by Ladies Lounge
  • Make and Takes
  • NEW product reveals!
  • Goodie Bags (more details to follow!)
  • Draws
Now you know I hate to tell you guys what to do BUT I must say that you HAVE to attend this event! Seriously, I know it is a busy week with back to school, etc. but this is truly ONE event that is not to be missed!  I PROMISE you will not be disappointed!

Beginning to feel a lot LIKE....

For those of you on facebook, you would have seen this picture of our mobile shipping and receiving department.  Last night it happened to be in my kitchen as it was a little too cool to work outside in our airy space!  Also, I was TOO excited to wait until today to rip into the boxes!  I was SO excited that I HAD to dust off my sombrero and celebrate the arrival in a festive style!  ha.

What exciting times at the store!  Everything, I mean EVERYTHING is NEW!!  


So we all know that every little thing he TIM does is magic, right?  Well his new distress glitter is just that....magic!  I would SO use this stuff like fairy dust and cast spells if I could!  Ha.  I mean even the little bottle makes me happy by just LOOKING at it!  Check out the display that was at CHA showing all 24 FABULOUS colours!

Here is a video of the man himself, explaining why you NEED his glitter!

Lakeside by Pebbles

This may in fact be THE cutest summer line I have ever seen!  Anyone who has gone away to the lake for summer holidays NEEDS this paper and the embellishments!  I brought in the 6x6 pad ($6.50), fun chipboard pieces ($4.50), stickers ($3.25) and the 12x12 collection pack ($21.99).
Love this packaging SO much!  Just like a chip bag!!  ha.
Here is a better look at the chipboard pieces that come in the adorable CHIPS bag!  $4.50

Ideology - Rub-Ons
Again....pure perfection for our main man, Tim!  $4.50.

Spellbinders - M-Bossabilities
I absolutely love this new A2 size folder from Spellbinders.  For $7.99 you get two designs on one space saving folders!

Justrite - More Stamps!
A great religious stamp set from Justrite!  $17.95.

Wednesday Fourth Street Market - TONIGHT!
The market is on TONIGHT from 4-8pm.  You HAVE to go and grab only THE freshest produce from my friend Henry, fresh baked goodies from my sister, Jen, healthy, and delicious salads from my niece, Emily and from all my other relatives!!  HA!  No seriously, we are not all related!  But there are some incredible finds at the market that you MUST stop in to see for yourself!  

Market night means we are open late tonight....THE PICKLE is open from 10am-8pm today!

Happy Holidays!

Last week felt like Christmas as all the new product magically appeared at the store.  You may want to read last Friday's post just in case you missed it.  I posted pictures of most of the new product!  But there was just so much, I couldn't get it all in one post. Here is a little more for you!  Feast your eyes on this...

Authentique - Tradition Collection

I absolutely love this line!  Each 12x12 paper is double sided ($0.99) and has a nice smooth finish. Check out those stockings and ornaments!  Anyone getting any ideas for their Christmas cards?!?

JustRite - Stamp Sets

I think this set would look great with the papers above. I also have plans for making some simple tags with this set ($27.95).

Penny Black - Baby!
For those of you not quite ready for Christmas, have a look at this adorable stamp set ($17.50).

Party Time!  Paper Straws!

We have an amazing selection of the party favourite....paper straws!  These straws come in packs of 15 for $2.50!  They are food-safe, biodegradable and perfect for any party or craft!  We have over a dozen colours available for purchase. I cannot wait to use them for Coulters birthday this weekend. Can you believe my baby is 5?!??

Fourth Street Market - Open Late
The market is happening on Fourth street tonight from 4-8pm. Shop the market and The Pickle!  We are open from 10am-8pm today!!!

You all know I am such a sucker for natural, wood embellishments. Here are the latest....small uniform hearts ($4.50). Perfect for wedding invitations, baby shower invites or ANY card or layout!

Embossing Folders
It was time to bring in a few new embossing folders!  Here are four new designs from Sizzix ($11.99 for two A2 sized folders).

And here is Spellbinders latest 3D M-Bossability design...simply stunning!  Could this be my Christmas card this year?!?!?
