the eleventh hour

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

We get it – not everyone can be Martha Stewart, checking off that gift list in mid-October with the perfect find for everyone from your uncle’s mother’s sister-in-law and their dog {and cat}. Without the winter holidays looming large on your calendar, getting down to the nitty gritty and standing in line at the stores can feel like an irksome task, one that is better saved for December 24th with other similarly-panicked consumers.

And since we’re guilty of the same crime {we’re still trying to figure out what to get that stupid cat}, we wanted to take some pain out of that last minute mad dash to the Christmas tree with some extended holiday hours. We’re open today Sunday, December 23rd from 12 PM to 5 PM and Christmas Eve, Monday December 24th from 10 AM to 5 PM to help you get all of those last minute {or, maybe every present} for anyone and everyone on your gift giving list. To boot, we have complimentary gift wrapping on every purchase and a sympathetic smile, because, well, we’ll probably be wrapping a few of our own gifts at the same time, too.

samples, samples everywhere

Thanks again to everyone who came out to our sample sale last weekend – what a whirlwind of a Saturday! If you didn’t make it out {or you just want to shop some more V&I deals} please do join us this weekend, 12/15 and 12/16, for the final weekend of our sale! We will be adding more styles that will all be up to 50% off! That means two presents for yourself for every one you find for someone else {or is our math wrong}?

To boot, we’ll also be hosting a Maison Bouche chocolate tasting this Saturday, 12/15! All purchases from our favorite Oakland-based chocolatier will be 10% off and we have stocked up on all of her signature holiday creations. Trust us when we say that her milk chocolate Mint Candy Cane bar makes up for the hassle of finding a parking space in downtown Berkeley {and, coincidentally, you can finish the whole bar in the time is takes you to walk back to said car read: it’s up and down delicious}.

See you there!
