HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

         Hope you are having fun celebrating our country's independence today. We are so lucky to live where we are free to make our own life choices - one of which is where we choose to shop.

                         We want you to shop at Feathers and Twigs!  Not only is this a thrifty choice  - you will also be helping planet earth by recycling homegoods.

          All of our inventory has been "previously loved", but still has lots of great years of use left.

Why buy new when old is so much better?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

         Jamie Townsend will get to shop for free this month! She is the lucky winner of our drawing for a $25 gift certificate.

                You can be lucky, too - just register to win every time you come in!

Also, every Thursday in July you can get 10% off everything in the store!
