We have the best customers here at Retro Rosie’s and Cobweb’s Unique Finds. Really. 99% of our regulars are super-sweet. The other 1%….well, let’s just say that it isn’t the 1% you want to aspire to! We know our customers are generous, helping, caring, and giving, and we, and Rosie, appreciate all of you!
To kick off the new year, we’ve started collecting loose change for charities. The plan was to support a new charity each month. January’s choice was Selah Freedom House. Sadly, we’ve only raised about $2 for them. So we’re going to continue the love into February. Selah Freedom House is here in Sarasota, providing safe homes, counseling, and rehabilitation to victims of human trafficking. Don’t think it’s much of an issue here? Manatee County police recently busted a prostitution and trafficking ring that involved 43 people. Florida is the number three state in the US for human trafficking, due in parts to both to the illegal sex trade and forced labor in agriculture. Help us make a difference in February in the lives of our most vulnerable citizens!
There’s other goodness coming up in February, and another kind of loving…Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a gift for your sweetie, stop in and see what we’ve got. Jewelry never goes amiss, and at Rosie’s you can pick out something unique with quality craftsmanship without breaking the bank. We’ll have earrings at buy one, get one half off, and 20% off necklaces, brooches, and bracelets. Ladies, if you’re looking for something with a little spice for your spouse, we’ll have 25% off all lingerie through Valentine’s Day.
Nancy will have all red and pink lovelies 20% off, whether it’s pottery, textiles, aprons, furniture, or garden goods.
