Rebecca's News December 2017
Dear Lovely Community,
The season is upon us with bustle and cheer. We heartily wish you Happy, Healthy Holidays and a Fabulous New Year!
Some months ago, we installed our newest employee, "Chippy the Chip Reader". Now, our first born, "Reggie" the checkout register, has a new sibling, "Tilly" the till. That's right, our brick and mortar store now has two registers! We know the holidays can be very busy and we aspire to make your Rebecca's checkout experience as easy and fluid as possible.
You'll see a change in our Holiday Gift Bags this year. I'm happy to announce that we've moved from organza bags to cotton and burlap. This feels more in line with our style and mission. I love the look and feel of this new packaging and hope you delight in them as well.
