Small Business Saturday is Coming!

We're willing to bet that you probably know what Black Friday is, and maybe you've participated in Cyber Monday too.  Holiday shopping has moved up to a whole new level, and it just seems to get crazier and crazier every year!  Most of the giant corporations are trying everything they can to get you in the door and spending all your cash on all the goodies they have on super duper price break.  For us shoppers, this is great, right?

But you know what?  There are tons and tons of small local businesses in your neighborhood who offer some fantastic, unique, thoughtful gifts that can't be found in any big-box department store.  Cordially Invited is one of those!

November 26th is the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday - the day that folks just like you come out to support their local small businesses.  This is a now-annual event that was started by American Express, and if you visit their Facebook page, register your AmEx card, and make a minimum purchase at a small business of $25, they'll give you a $25 statement credit.  That's a pretty good deal, don't you think?  Not only that, but if you make a $50 purchase at Cordially Invited between 11/26-12/23 AND check in to the shop on Facebook while you're here, you'll get an additional $25 credit!

So after you've given thanks on Thursday and maneuvered through the crowds on Black Friday, will you come to Cordially Invited on Saturday?  We'll be offering some great discounts for our loyal customers from 10:00 - 7:00.

Thanks for supporting us and Small Business Saturday!  See you soon!

Calling All Bakers!

It's hard to believe, but the holiday baking season is upon us!  And just in time, Cordially Invited is excited to offer a new cookbook called Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has A Story:

This is no ordinary dessert cookbook - it's over three hundred pages full of recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, and candy that each offer a piece of history from those who created them.  They're treasured family recipes compiled from across the country, preserved from butter-smudged recipe cards and cookbooks, with bits of entertaining narratives throughout the entire book.

Not only is this a fabulous book that you'll reach for not just during the holidays but all year-round, but you're invited to join us for a book signing by the Sugar Mommas themselves - Sugar, Sugar's authors Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero!  They'll be at the shop to meet you and sign copies of the book this Saturday, November 19th, from 2:00-4:00.

You must purchase the book at Cordially Invited to have it signed.  Call or stop by to reserve your copy today! But if you happened to pick it up elsewhere and want to get it signed - we wont turn you away..stop in!!

Want to learn more about the Sugar Mommas and their new book?  They're on Twitter, Facebook, and have their own website too.

Come in to Cordially Invited this Saturday, pick up a copy of Sugar, Sugar, and get to know these fabulous ladies!  See you then!
