Inclement weather reminder

With snow in the air here in Colorado, I thought that I would let you know that if we DO get a lot snow or ice, I might not be able to get to the store. We live a ways from the main roads that get plowed, and sometimes it’s just too treacherous for me to drive. I live a ways from the store and my weather might be a lot different than the weather in town. I always try to make it in, but there are those days that the roads are just not safe for me to drive that distance.

If the weather is ‘iffy’ feel free to call the store to see if I am open before you make a trip out. The number at the store is 303-665-1767, and if I don't answer, please leave me a message as I may be with a customer and unable to answer. I will return your call if I am in the store.
Thanks for your understanding.

Goal setting for 2009 atThe Speckled Goose

I am working on my goals and creating ideas for the coming year and I would like to know what you, customers of The Speckled Goose, would like to see in the store this next year.

Are you looking for more cottage decor, more western style decor, more primitive decor, more lodge decor, or a more neutral decor. Are you looking for an outlet to purchase more linens? Are you looking for more girlie items? handbags, jewelry, scarves, or more bath and body? Are you looking for more paper crafts? Scrapbook pages ready to add photos, photo calendars? complete photo albums and all you do is add photos?

Please try to be specific also, as in, stitcheries, more handpainted items, more dolls, more furniture, etc.

And for taking your time to let me know what you would like to see in The Speckled Goose, I will give each and every one of you that respond, a $10.00 FREE gift certificate to The Speckled Goose as my way of saying Thank You.

Please email me your thoughts to: and mention 2009 goals in the subject line. You can either pick up your gift certificate at the store, or I will mail to you. Your choice.

The gift certificate will be redeemable either in person at the store or on-line at:

Again, Thank you for participating and helping me set goals for the store for next year.

I hope all of you have a very Happy Holiday Season, and Merry Christmas. I appreciate all of the support / business you have given me and The Speckled Goose during this last year. I have been truly blessed meeting each and every one of you.

I will be taking a few days off after Christmas to spend some much needed time with my boys. Both Mark, and John have been very supportive of mom working long hours.
