For Hostesses & the Ones Who Appreciate Them

As I sit typing this blog post, it's 8:46 AM on a Wednesday morning, eight days before Thanksgiving. The snow is falling crisply and quick outside the shop windows onto the cold Ohio street. At home in the evenings after the shop closes, we've been cleaning and gathering our recipes for the big meal next week. Mmm...I can almost smell that warm, buttery, sage-y turkey now.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite Holidays: a full day dedicated to nothing more than gratitude for the grace that has been extended to us, and, well, to eating as a way to celebrate that grace.

To sweeten your preparations and lighten your load, we are kicking off our Holiday Hostess Sale this Friday the 21st, both in store...

and for the first time ever, online!!!

Beginning this Friday the 21st, online shoppers will enjoy the same sale as will our local customers. Select hostess gifts, serving pieces, and gourmet items featured in our Online Boutique will be 15% OFF through Thursday the 27th. Simply enter promo code MERCI {all caps, please} at time of checkout to receive the discount on qualifying items. Each item that's on sale online will be flagged as a Holiday Hostess Sale item, so those items should be easy to spot.

Please note that throughout the sale, all orders will ship within one to two business days by UPS Ground. For some of you, that might mean that UPS won't make it to your door before Turkey Day, but please note that all of the items we're featuring online are apropos for Christmas and other Holiday gifts.

If you're an online shopper and have any questions about our Holiday Hostess Sale, please call the shop at 330.492.2500 or e-mail us at helpdesk@theblissful.com.

Merci and we hope to see you in the shop over the weekend. We'll be serving light nibbles and sips to give you a taste of some of our gourmet fare.

Please note that the brick-and-mortar shop will close at 3 PM Wednesday the 26th and remain closed through Thanksgiving Day.
