The Cotton Company Weekly E-News!
It's hard to believe that we're half way through May and Summer is upon us. But the news keeps coming here at the The Cotton Company and our vendors are working hard to keep new products, home decor, and gifts ideas on the shelves.
This Friday, join us from 5:30-8pm for a Ladies Night Sparkling Spa Experience.
We will enjoy product demo's by The Carolina Bee Company and you can learn how this local business is making these all natural soaps, body balms and candles.
Then, extend the Spa Experience by visiting Suds N More for a sample of their handcrafted sugar scrub and lotions. Some of these soaps we literally can't keep on the shelf!
Finish it off by swinging by Jinja Fair Trade to browse handmade jewelry and get some tips on how to use lightweight scarfs to enhance your wardrobe this summer.
We will have door prizes and local vendors in the house along with sparkling beverages and snacks that ladies love!
This week our Featured Vendor is Baker's Southern Traditions
Their NC grown peanuts are so good! And, they offer more than just nuts. Great gift ideas for any time of year, but especially for Father's Day.
You know you'll win over your Daddy-O with a pack of chocolate covered peanuts, or some yummy peanut brittle. But if you want the Better Bites (chocolate-caramel nut bites) you'd better come quick because I'm destroying that stock for my personal gain!
If you don't like peanuts or just want an alternative to a snack food you can also find a wide variety or jams, salsas, and hot sauces. Everything here is Made in NC!
If you're like me at all, you're already planning your Memorial Day Weekend Cookout!
In just a few weeks we'll be firing up the grill and Lord willing sitting outside soaking up some all natural Vitamin D! This brings me to our staff pick of the week which for the summer may turnout to be my personal shopping list!
This is a duo pick b/c I can't separate my desire for these items which can all be found at the Chiq Boutique!
First, I am dreaming about the pool I will have one day and I'm always on the prowl for a new friend with a backyard full of water! Any sun lover needs this itsa towel - and it is perfect for a graduation gift (which you should be picking up this week!)
It's a beach bag, and towel in one - with a handy carrying strap and pockets to keep your goodies off the sand! They come in a variety of great colors - embroidery not included.
Second, to enhance your Memorial Day Holiday BBQ action grab an embellished serving tray and a couple of these super cute - super functional "Red Neck Wine Glasses."
This Mason Jar glassware comes in a remarkable variety of sizes good for wine (of course) or a cold beer, or grab the jumbo size for a truly southern serving of Sweet Tea!
Okay, now that I'm done with my personal shopping rant be sure to keep an eye out for this new vendor, details and photos coming soon, they are loading in today!
Be sure to come in and check out our Father's Day Gift Guides starting June 1st! If you had a chance to browse the store with our Mother's Day guide you know it was helpful so, coming soon - your guide for finding Man Themed Gifts inside The Cotton Company.
Here's a little taste of what's to come:
Find GOVINO drink ware and Whisky Stones at Everett Lobban Interiors
Get your favorite sports team hats and flip flops at Southern Sass
Or, grab this plaque to express your true feelings...
And, not to harp on the way to a man's heart but rest assured these Wind & Willow dip mixes found at Tuscan Rose will keep him full and happy!
If you find something great that's not on our Gift Guide tell us about it!
We always respect quality feedback.
That's all for now, thanks for reading!
