I know right now some of you think I don’t know how to spell the given name for the appendage at the back end of my body. Yes, I know that’s a tail. This week I’m talking about different tales. Also, I want to make sure you know about our upcoming Gift Shop Sale. It’s a biggie. Everything in the gift shop (with the exclusion of gift baskets and wine) will be 15% off on Saturday, November 1 from 10 to 5 and Sunday, November 2 from 12 to 5. Start your holiday shopping early, stock up, and get a specialty, most-likely hand-crafted gift for a great price. There is a tale that there might be white stuff falling from the sky this weekend. Come in, warm your heart and hands with some spiced wine and get into the spirit.
While you are thinking about holiday gift giving, don’t forget we can also custom label your wine. While this is not on sale, if you are in shopping, it’s the perfect time to check out the book of available labels or you can always send your own digital image to be put on a bottle. Want more info?

Tales, I’m getting on with the tales now. First I want to say “Thank you” to everyone who came out to support our Max the MINI/Verhext event this past weekend. I’m going to share some photos below that tell the tale of the weekend. Let’s just say the weather could not have been better. A convertible in the rain would have been no fun. You did it. Each of you who visited and brought gifts helped to change the lives of homeless families in our community. You filled the car, but not only that; you donated $180 in cash from your change. $180 may not sound like a lot of money but it is a significant number to the Family Promise organization, it represents the 180-degree change that people make in their lives and also is the amount of money needed to help a family of four for one week. If you have been touched by the organization and want more info, please go to: http://familypromisecarboncounty.com/home/. This week, as I am posting this blog, two families are moving into their own homes because of kind-hearted people like you. This will open space for two more families to be assisted and helped. Thank you to MINI of Allentown, to Bill, Rich, Mary, Lauren, and the rest of their staff and clients who thought this would be fun and pitched in. Thanks to every one of you, my readers, for bringing donations and encouraging others to come too. Thanks to Alex for taking these beautiful photos that show what a great weekend we had. As we head into November, the month focused on giving thanks, I am so thankful for you.
Until next time…
