Weekly Newsletter Volume 70 | November 23, 2020
Greetings!
Happy Thanksgiving week! I know things will look different this year, but we are storytellers, and I'm sure our scrapbooks will still look amazing.

Due to the new measures put out by SCC Office of Public Health, we will be canceling our Holiday Boutique this year.

We are closed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week to observe Thanksgiving and get prepared for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday! But our online shop is open! See below for sale details!
Creative Escape: Early Access We have a new private Facebook group for our store community. Click here to join the group. Here are 3 things that will be happening in the group:
  • A place to share creations and product tips with others.
  • Facebook online Steals Sales and Flash Sales
  • Access to Classes and Kits before others

Starbucks: The Starbucks in our strip mall has closed. It's a bummer, but we do have a Keurig machine for your use :)
We are closely monitoring the information being distributed by the Santa Clara County Office of Public Health. We will promptly take action as the situation calls for it.
