Herma’s Christmas Message


Dear Customers and Friends,

Christmastime and the New Year always make me reflect on my life and all the blessings that surround me. My family includes all loved ones who have drifted in and out of my life and I am thankful for each and every one.

It is awe-inspiring to consider the ripple affect of emotions and behaviors that each person make one to the other. I always hope that I have a positive affect on those I come in contact with whether it be through the beauty created within the store or perhaps through a hug or a smile.

I may not know some of you as well as I would like, but I hope that I have created something within the store that you may love and appreciate.

I have always been inspired by Walt Disney’s “When You Wish Upon a Star”. This song invites us to wish upon a star and to believe in dreams coming true.

It happened for me with my store, which lets face it, sits in the middle of a cornfield. And yet here I am 22 years after I began, still striving to create beauty and a magical atmosphere.

I started my company with a wish (and a lot of hard work). I also have friends and frequent customers that have supported Harry and I through the years. I am truly in earnest when I thank you for this.

This Christmas we wish you happiness and the ability to dream. Let us wish this year for a dream I truly believe is possible during these dark days, a dream that peace around the world is achievable. Most of all I wish you love, for that is what is most important.

On behalf of Harry and I,

Merry Christmas to all and best wishes in the New Year.
