Before we turn over a new year’s leaf, it’s fun to take a short stroll down memory lane. Here is some of the best (or at least the most memorable) moments from 2014:
Let it snow: Not one blizzard – but two – this month. So much that Snow’s had to close on the 3rd and the 22nd!
Fall in love (with great coffee): This month, we began our continuing love affair with java’s best. Capresso, Nespresso… several promotional offers and in-store demos followed throughout the year. Did you get your brew on?
Designer on Duty kickoff: Spring wasn’t necessarily in the air, but the excitement about renewing our home decor certainly was. Visiting experts Madeleine Bickert, Susan Pike and Lori Mead were on hand to guide customers through their interior design projects. Stay tuned for our expanded designer program in 2015!
Train fun: Many of our local families love coming to Snow’s during April school vacation. The kids never tire of our interactive train display, and the parents love to take advantage of the diversion and get a little shopping done.
Coastal cravings: May marks the time of year when lots of our customers come back to the Cape to begin opening their homes for the season. They were delighted to find lots of new coastal decor, from mermaid-themed accents to local pottery.
Sandbox reinvented: Beach mode or not, families loved one of the best games of the year – Sands Alive! A fun, “un-technologied” activities for busy hands of all ages… even on rainy days.
Tax-free deals: Massachusetts approved another state tax-free weekend on the 16th and 17th of this month, giving residents a chance to get some great savings on higher ticket items. We’ll have to wait and see in the Commonwealth does it again for 2015, but if they do – there’s no better time to invest in something big, such as outdoor furniture. In 2014, our customers saved the 6.25% tax on top of our already discounted prices.
Women’s wear: This fall, Snow’s introduced an expanded line of women’s fashion, with lots of universal appeal.
Green and serene: Benjamin Moore announced their Color of the Year: Guilford Green. A beautiful, calming shade of green with endless color combinations.
The holiday season is here: Snow’s holiday shop (including the annual holiday train display) is in full swing. We hope you had a chance to share some holiday spirit with us.
Good cheer, and giving back: We has many special events in the store this month, including free knife sharpening, wine tastings, book signings, a visit from our local school choir, and of course, visits from Santa, Mrs. Claus and Frosty.
One of our most special memories in December was sharing the 13th annual Giving Tree gifts with the Housing Assistance Corporation of Cape Cod. Our community really came together, donating many generous items to our neighbors in need.
Thank you, for being a part of it all. Looking forward to a memorable 2015!
