Do you need a reason to shop at Madison Lane?

We know you can't buy everything on your list from MLI, but you might be surprised at what you can find for those special gifts you are buying this year.  In addition to our store, remember to visit your other locally owned shops.  Visit the website for The 3/50 Project  and see exactly why it means so much to your local economy!  

I found the following piece from the 3/50 Project blog.  Thanks Cinda Baxter for posting it.  Wish I could have found the actual footage from the show---it really was funny listening to Seth Meyers!

Two big box classics from SNL

From the “Weekend News” segment on Saturday Night Live, November 5, 2011:
“Macy’s announced this week that its flagship store in Manhattan will undergo a $400 million renonvation that will create the world’s largest women’s shoe department, featuring more than 300,000 pairs of shoes, and—as always—one cashier.”
“Several department stores have announced that on Black Friday—the day after Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season—they will open their stores at midnight because nothing puts people in the giving spirit like enduring a long, stressful holiday with their family, hopping in the car half drunk in the middle of the night, and battling an angry mob over a tennis bracelet.”
On behalf of the mom and pop businesses everywhere, thank you, Seth Meyers. Big time.

Sounds like another good reason to shop at Madison Lane.

If you're busy during the week, Monday - Thursday, see us on Saturdays, 11:00 - 3:00Parking is convenient!  Please browse or ask Pam and Amber for the best gift selections!

It's that time of year . . .already! Christmas 2011

Here's a  peak into our Christmas for this year.  You might have noticed we are behind on blogging, but the unpacking, pricing, arranging and clean-up involved with Christmas decor is always more involved than we think it will be!!

We are featuring white and silver this year, along with some unique garland and icy picks.  If you look closely you'll see the chandelier style ornaments hanging above the chest.  You will still find some traditional gold ornaments, but not the typical shapes. 

Not to be forgotten are the seasonal Trapp candles.  We also have two of their room sprays in stock.  Ask about the free gift with purchase when you come in.  There are several new fragrances this year from Trapp---more decisions to make!

Our Holiday hours start this weekend---Saturdays from 11:00 til 3:00, and our usual days of Monday thru Thursday from 11:00 til 5:30.
