We have already received annual pieces in from Lilliput Lane and Precious Moments. Now the first Cherished Teddies dated piece has arrived.
Debbi – Joyful Are Christmas Gifts and Holiday Wishes – is the 2014 dated figurine. This cute bear has lots of detail, right down to a Christmas tree patch on her sweater as she sits atop a Christmas present. Retailing at $44.95 Canadian we expect she will go quickly as dated pieces seem to do.
Welcome to October – month of delivery cutoff dates for Christmas parcels.
It’s hard to believe but according to Canada Post today, October 1st 2014, is the last day to send parcels by way of surface mail for guaranteed Christmas delivery to Australia, New Zealand and Africa.
Other overseas deadlines come throughout the month of October – the 10th for the Middle East, 20th for Asia, the Caribbean, plus Central and South America, the 27th for Europe.
Air mail dates range from November 24th to December 5th. These dates also apply to Christmas greeting cards posted overseas.
To the United States surface parcels need to be sent by December 8th, cards by December 12th. In Canada December 11th is the cutoff date for parcels, December 18th for cards.
Plan ahead to save!
As leaves are changing colours, filling our world with beautiful scenery even as the temperature dips into cooler numbers, an array of milk chocolate novelties are being prepared for the fall season.
Solid milk chocolate leaves are first on the list. Priced by weight they make a nice addition to a box of assorted chocolate or can be used by themselves as a table favour.
Three dimensional apples and pumpkins are another option for table favours or just a fun treat. Also several chocolate on a stick options are ready for fall, some that fit Thanksgiving or Halloween specifically. Choose between turkeys, pumpkins, owls, ghosts and cats. There is also a larger size decorated jack-o-lantern on a stick, with candy eyes and nose.
While chocolate options are popular the biggest draw for many customers at this time of year is the return of pumpkin pie fudge. Don’t miss out on this once a year treat, only available to the end of October.
Arlis – Our Friendship Will Never Melt – is the next arrival in the Christmas Cherished Teddies for 2014. Dressed in her light blue snowsuit this little girl is enjoying some winter fun building a happy snowman. She retails at $47.95, but quantities are limited.
At last the long awaited pumpkin pie fudge has made its way into our showcase. Whether you want just a taste or much larger quantity we are ready to help. Need some shipped? No problem, we are used to sending it all over the place.
Pumpkin pie fudge will be the feature through the end of September and through October.
