Style it up with a scarf!

I have been on the scarf bandwagon for a couple of years now, and I am so glad that they continue to come out with bright and bold patterns season after season! I always get asked about how in the heck you are supposed to wear scarves, and technically there are TONS of different ways […]

They like me…they really like me!!

We won…thanks to our loyal customers! In the most recent volume of Sync’s “Best of the Metro” issue we won for Best Gift Store. We know we have the BEST customers on earth, but we don’t know why we are sometimes overlooked on these polls. Is it because we are so big and have been […]

13 Billion ways to say I Love You

I just read this morning that American’s are expected to spend $13-$14 billion dollars on Valentine’s Day this year. All I can say is WOW!
