Gifts are a SNAP at Enchanted Gardens

Without spoiling the surprise, I won’t tell you the name of the person for which I was looking for a gift. I’ll just say I stopped by Enchanted Garden in Shreveport with no idea of what I wanted to buy. That Deb Cockrell is one savvy lady. Deb owns Enchanted Garden and is one of the sweetest southern ladies you’d want to meet. She asked me a few questions and in a snap had a suggestion – Gingersnap Jewelery. Apparently this is the new rage with the gals and I’m too old or not cool enough to know.

Ginger Snaps are interchangeable and fun charms that you snap in and out of a variety of jewelry and accessories. They have bracelets, necklaces, rings, shoes, purses and probably more that I didn’t see. There is a limited selection of collegiate snaps for those who want to sport their favorite team. The best part about Gingersnaps is that they are so affordable.

While I was in the store, there were at least three people who came in just for Gingersnaps. So you better head on over and get yours! 

Gifts are a snap at Enchanted Garden, so shop local and keep up online with them:

Maurices is a must!

MauricesMaurices, a new fashion store, has arrived in Bossier City. Store manager, Candace Slack was on-hand to share the story of Maurices at a Bossier Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting on Thursday, October 20. Maurices has 744 stores in 44 states and is committed to high standards for fashion, value and great customer service. Candace made it clear that Maurices is community oriented and strives to make a difference in the local area.

Maurices My favorite thing about Maurices is the selection of sizes. They have sizes 0-24. How many of you bigger girls get frustrated when all of the bigger sizes look like maw-maw clothes? I know I sure do. But not at Maurices. The styles are oh so cute. The photo at right is one of the plus size fashions. Didn’t I tell you? C-U-T-E! Maurices states on their website that their styles are inspired by the girl in everyone, in every size.

MauricesOne thing that I found interesting after talking to the Assistant Manager was that while you are shopping in the store, the clothes are always grouped in what’s called 4-ways. (see photo at left) The idea is that when you stand in the middle of four 4-ways, you can pull from any one of the four racks and they will coordinate with each other. This is helpful for anyone who is fashion challenged. (like me!) Although the clothing is targeted for the twenty-something crowd, I promise – most women will be able to find something that they like. Along with clothing, you will find jewelry, shoes and accessories. For the grand opening, Maurices is having a buy one item, get the second item at 50% off. What a great deal!

MauricesMauricesMauricesMaurices is located at 2765 Beene Blvd in the Stirling Shopping Center in Bossier City. Three doors down from Target. They are opened Monday – Saturday 10 am – 9 pm and Sunday 12 pm – 6 pm. Stop by and tell them you read my blog.

See ya around Bossier,
