Who are you thankful for?

Who are you thankful for?

Whether it’s someone close to you, someone in our community, or someone who’s life bumped into yours once upon a time and truly made your day--we want to hear about it.

As the holiday season approaches we realize that too often stress and noise--‘to do’ lists and expectations cast a shadow on what we all wish this spirited season to represent: sharing time with family and friends, showing one another our love and appreciation, and giving back to our personal sphere as well as our community.

During November and December of this year we invite you to take a moment to think about someone you are thankful for. Write a little bit about this person--what makes them stand out to you--and include your contact information as well as any contact info you may have for said person.
Email it to us at or drop it off at the shop at 204 S 3rd st W, next door to Bernice’s Bakery.

We will be posting bits from these writings anonymously on our blog at

On Saturday, December 18th, we will choose 3 pieces that plucked our heartstrings and give away a $100 gift certificate for each person being thanked, as well as a steezy product bundle for each of the writers.
