What a great birthday weekend for Whimsy, our little Frog on a Limb. We got to meet lots of new guests Friday and Saturday who came in to take advantage of our gift to our customers, 10 percent off the entire store. In total, folks saved nearly $200 last weekend and we hope they all come back for more.

Speaking of more, be sure to visit us this Friday and Saturday during Monument Merchants’ Christmas Open House November 1-2 from 10am to 6pm and “Buy for the Black Forest!” Along with 15 more vendors in town we’ll be collecting donations, ornaments and tree trimmings to go to Black Forest Fire victims in time for Christmas. We’re really happy to be a part of this as those who have followed us for a while will know, we sponsored a benefit in September  earning $1000 for Tri-Lakes Cares to go to Black Forest Fire victims assistance.

Contrary to the beliefs of many HUMBUGS out there, insurance does not cover everything, so while you are preparing for the holidays at our Christmas Open House, spread some joy to fire victims for their first Christmas after this summer’s catastrophe.

To prove it, we are offering 10 percent off your entire purchase if you buy an ornament for victims of the Black Forest Fire. Choose from Jessica’s hand painted slate or spoon ornies, full size Christmas slates, frosted Santa’s, and many other textile and repurposed ornaments and decorations. Just pick the ornie or decoration of your choice, put it in the collection box and say “I’m buying for the Black Forest,” to get 10 percent off your entire purchase.

Take advantage of this deal to pick up some old fashioned Christmas decorations for your family too. Last year Jessica painted feverishly right up to a week before Christmas, but the only way to be sure you will get your custom slate or ornament in time for Christmas is to get your order in before Thanksgiving. You still have time, but why not pick Jessica’s brain for ideas this weekend before the mad rush? If you decide on something special, just pay for your order in full this weekend and “Buy for the Black Forest” to get 10 percent off.

Jessica also has a number of her hand painted Christmas slates and ornies already on the trees to choose from, and she’ll paint a name and  year on

Do some Christmas preparation shopping this Friday and Saturday, November 1-2 from 10am to 6pm at Frog on a Limb Primitives during Monument Merchants’ Christmas Open House and “Buy for the Black Forest” to do something nice this Christmas for a family dealing with loss.
