Staff Pick Friday: Brenda

Here we go for round 2 of Staff Pick Friday! Today I will introduce you to the backbone of the store, Brenda, our store manager. Whether it’s to lend an ear {or a hug} when you’re having a bad day, or being that all-star manager that is meeting everyone’s needs and desires, our in-store Mom is anything but uncool and dated!  She’s got a knack for selecting the perfect card for any occasion, as she is the face behind our amazing selection of greeting cards. Read on to find out what a few of her favourite store picks are!

{$13.95 each}

Eeboo, out of NYC, offers timeless and traditional illustrations in their children’s product. I really appreciate their Tell Me A Story flashcards. These award winning story cards are suitable for ages 3 and up and encourage vocabulary and creative language development through interactive stories that either the child shares with the adult, or the other way around! 100% original artwork, no licensed Hello Kitty here!

{$5.50 – $9.50 each}

Canadian made for our favourite canine friends! We have our own dog barkery in the shop with all natural baked goodies that look like they’re made for humans! Truffles, hotdogs, and hamburgers with fetch fries and cookies decorated for Halloween and birthdays are sure to make any dog owner/lover smile. They have even passed the Cali taste test… she loved them!

{although these cards are blank, they are accompanied by very subtle and sweet sayings on the back of every single one of them… as they are shown above, too cute!}

My absolute favourite new card line out of NYC is called Screetch Owl Design. Can a person be obsessed with a card line?? {Yes Brenda, only you!} These quirky, original illustrations are printed on 100% recycled paper and are left blank for your own personal message. They are suitable for any occasion when you want to send a note to someone. Who wouldn’t want to receive a card in the mail… much better than a bill! Long live the handwritten note!

That’s our Brenda in a nutshell! Like anything you see above? Grab some breakfast this weekend at Urban Diner and come for a stroll {be sure to bundle up with scarves and mitties.. we’ve hit winter Edmonton!}.
