Lovely new Spring Trollbeads collection!

We are seriously in love with our new Trollbeads spring collection. Here, we have a picture of a bracelet that was created using these beads. Honestly, we all fell in love with the new butterfly bead, which is light and airy--and can be worn on your bracelet or on a necklace.

Hello there!

Can you believe that spring is around the corner? And are you excited about the longer sunny days? We are, too...and we also want to remind you that Easter is early this year. To help with your Easter planning, we have stocked our shelves with Jelly Belly beans and chocolate bunnies.

Trollbeads Idea

Here's an idea for wearing your Trollbeads! Take two Trollbeads necklace chains and a bracelet, and put beads on (using stoppers to place them where you want them). Attach the three chains together with different decorative clasps. This is what it may look like when you put it all together:

Here is how it looks like on a real person.

Thursday, April 26, 2012

We have some exciting things coming up! On May 3-5, we have our Trollbeads event, and we will have several promotional offers. These include: Buy a decorative clasp, get a Trollbeads Bracelet free! Get a $25 gift certificate with your Trollbeads purchase of $125 or more! We have some other fun things planned...so keep watching the blog for more news!

Q) Are you a franchise operation?
A) Although Hallmark stores are nationally recognized as a brand, the stores (excepting corporate stores) are independently owned. What this means is that each and every Hallmark store is going to be unique. While a certain amount of footage is dedicated to Hallmark products, such as greeting cards or gift wrap, the remaining products are selected by the owners of the store. This is why if you are looking for a specific product that you saw at one particular store, it may not be carried by a different Hallmark store.

As a result, what you see at Vale Edge Florist & Hallmark is unique. Few Hallmark stores have Trollbeads, Chamilia, Miche Bag, and even tuxedo rental! These are just a few of the items that truly make our store a unique shopping experience. Know that if you shop at our store, you are supporting a local merchant and its employees. We are not corporate-owned nor are we a franchise. Our philosophy is that we need to support our Ravenna community by shopping locally. In this way, the community will thrive.

Q) Is the Hallmark Gold Crown Rewards card a credit card?
A) No. The Hallmark Gold Crown Rewards card is a loyalty card, offered to you free of charge. Each time you make a purchase at our store, whether it is in our Hallmark gift division or in our floral division, you have the opportunity to earn rewards points. Hallmark will periodically send you gift certificates based upon the amount you have spent within a certain period of time. In addition, as a member of the Hallmark Gold Crown Rewards program, you will also receive special offers, such as member-only promotions for special gifts, invitations to special events, and a birthday coupon.

Q) You're just a florist, right?
A) Our store originally started as a florist, but over the past decade, also became a Hallmark Gold Crown Store.

Q) Where are you located?
A) We are located at 247 S. Chestnut Street in Ravenna, near the Courthouse.

Q) When are your hours?
A) We are open Monday-Friday from 9 AM - 7 PM; Saturdays from 9 AM - 5 PM; and Sundays from 11 AM - 4 PM

Just a few gift ideas

The holidays are around the corner, and we'd like to share a few gift ideas over the next month or two. And of course, if you need us to help find the perfect gift for that special person, just let us know.

This is one of many Hallmark Keepsake ornaments that is available.

This particular ornament, 100 Years of Helping You Say It All, tells the story of Hallmark. Here are a few interesting facts about this ornament:

The train at the bottom represents the arrival of J. Hall in Kansas City. The houses surrounding the tree are replicas of the Nostalgic Homes ornament series. The ornaments on the tree are from the Twelve Days of Christmas series.

And the little sculpted base? If you look carefully, you'll see that there is a shoebox with cards in it. When Hallmark started selling cards, the cards were sold door-to-door in shoeboxes. As the cards became more popular, they were sold in stores and were displayed under glass countertops. Customers would let the sales clerk know which cards he or she wanted. This is where the phrase, "counter cards" comes from.

Did you also know that before wrapping paper was used, gifts were wrapped in tissue paper? One day, a customer came to a Hallmark store, but they had run out of tissue paper, so Mr. Hall used envelope lining paper to wrap the gift that the customer purchased. Thus, gift wrap was born.
