Before we close the shop later today for the next four days for the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to share with you the details of our Holiday Open House.
This year, we'll be celebrating the holiday season at SSYC on Saturday, December 6 from 10-4. We'd love for you to come visit and shop, come nosh on some treats and leave with a gift from us to you. But the really fun part is this year's contests. If you wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater (hand knit or not) you'll be entered in a contest that we'll vote on the SSYC Ravelry Group (the sweater with the most number of LOVES will win a $50 gift certificate). Or, simply wear any hand knit project that you are proud of and we will photo and show them off on the blog. And then one of those will be randomly chosen to win a $25 gift certificate.
Our Holiday Open House is a fun way to see you all and celebrate this time of year. I do hope that many of you can make it and the weather is kind to all that want to make the drive.
On another note, we will be closing today through Monday. I've decided to make family a priority this Thanksgiving, and I think the SSYC team is grateful for a few days off to celebrate this time of year with those close to us. I do hope that this doesn't deter anyone from shopping online with us during this busy shopping weekend, but orders won't start shipping until this Monday, December 1st. I have received disappointed e-mails and calls about being closed this Saturday. I know it's a big shopping weekend in the US, and it is "small business Saturday" and all, and I hate to disappoint anyone who wants to support us.... but, well, we really just want to spend time with our loved ones. And I do hope that you'll still shop online with us and will come to shop in person on another weekend. Because we are VERY VERY thankful for you. Happy Thanksgiving!
