We are so excited to announce that Santa Claus himself is going to be stopping in at The Cordial Cricket on Saturday, December 5th from 12:00 to 5:00. This will be a perfect opportunity to bring your little ones, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends to visit with Santa. Each child will have the opportunity to visit with Santa and receive a special treat! While they tell him what they would like this year for Christmas, you can take as many pictures as you would like! We will have cookies and drinks for the kids to share with Santa too!
This is a wonderful FREE opportunity for any children in the community to participate in and we are so looking forward to having them come to our store to visit with Santa! Please click here and RSVP to let us know if you will be bringing your children to our store to visit with Santa to help us plan for refreshments, etc. You do not need to make an appointment or have a reservation, so please come either way, but if you can let us know ahead that would be great!
"Katie Lemon Designs started with just a sketch on a yellow sticky note.
My name is Katie Lemon and the start of my line of clutches all began with an idea I had in my head that I would sketch over and over, thinking of different color combinations, fabrics, etc. Never sewing a day in my life I recruited the help of a co-worker and my mother who taught me my valuable first sewing lessons and made my little sketch come to life. Since then I’ve spent countless hours sewing and scouring fabric and antique stores looking for the perfect fabrics and accessories to make that perfect clutch. I started this line about 3 months ago and love every minute of it. I am also currently working on new shapes and designs and can’t wait to get to debut them in the near future." ~ Katie Lemon

Did you miss our big birthday bash? Shame on you, however, all of the patient folks who waited in line for their SWAG bags early that morning appreciate you missing it so they could get their bag. Well, you will soon have another opportunity to get in on the SWAG bags and get yours at our annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, October 17th from 10:00 - 6:00. We will have SWAG bags for the first 60 customers to arrive, FULL of more FREE merchandise, specials & coupons. All holiday cards and merchandise will be on sale. We'll have a sidewalk sale with discounts up to 60% off. We will be serving a beautiful holiday themed cake from It's A Piece of Cake too!
You can also start the giving season off right by helping others and save some money on your shopping at the same time! Bring in a donation at our Holiday Open House for the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother program (new toys, books, non-perishable food, or monetary donations) and you will receive 20% off your entire purchase that day, (excludes invitations & may not combined with any other sale) but that means whatever you want at 20% off regular price!!! We will continue to accept donations for the Christmas Mother throughout the season and offer other discounts when you bring in a donation, but we won't offer 20% off again, just at the Holiday Open House.
So, get here early to get your bag of goodies, bring a donation for the Christmas Mother, have some cake, pick out your holiday cards at a discount and start your holiday shopping off right! See you there!

We are pleased to introduce yet another line of custom products and gifts to our customers. hen and barley press was borne of a love of stationery and everything it represents--giving, inviting and gathering people together. Jenny Morgan and Carolyn Streett, the two moms who founded the company, think there is nothing better than a simple gift, a good party, or a great dinner. As moms with 6 boys between them, they get it, though--keeping up with your busy modern life while keeping your style and sanity intact is no easy feat! Their philosophy is that everyone is happier when you keep it simple and go ahead and give, invite and gather more, even when the gift wrap is not quite right, or the house isn't perfect, or the to-do list seems never-ending.
And so, hen and barley press products are conceived to help you do just that. Whether it's cute gift labels to spruce up whatever gift wrap happens to be lurking in the closet, or a chic wine bag to dress up the bottle of wine you grab while heading out the door to a dinner, or a fabulous invitation for the time you decide to get organized and really throw a party, or some stylish personalized notesheets that keep your shopping lists looking good, hen and barley press means products for giving, inviting and gathering more with ease and style.
Come by to see their products on display in our store. Everything from custom return address labels, to custom wine bags, note pads, luggage tags and much more!
