October Newsletter

Okay, we women of the sensible shoes aren't known for our ability to stay up late so we've decided to do some serious, mid-day partying this month. Check it out...

First Friday Game Day Friday, October 2nd 10am-7pm
As part of Pearl Street's ongoing "First Friday" celebrations, we're hosting a full day of party games WITH PRIZES! (furniture, jewelry, pottery, candles, gift certificates)
So rock out at Topo Ranch, get your nails did for free at 10-20 then come on down and flex your skill, luck and general silliness at Joyful.

Munchkin Masquerade Thursday, October 29th 2pm-5pm
Candy! Candy! Candy! If you're going to the Halloween party on the mall, stop at Joyful on your way there and grab a treat. If you're not, come in anyway and save our refinishing team from sugar-induced coma.

A couple of new fun things:

Steel blue dresser $449 SOLD
Matching nightstand $189 SOLD

Light grey-blue dresser $499 SOLD

Mod orange desk with brushed nickel pulls $299 SOLD

Drop-leaf table also in "geranium" orange $329 SOLD

Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." And then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on people’s doors and go, "Trick or treat." "No thank you."
