Our 1st Pet Fair was a huge success and looks like a natural to be held again next year! We had ponies, a miniature horse, a beautiful Arabian mare, some precious little yellow ducklings, a fun clown and of course, DOGS! The greyhounds were a huge hit with everyone and evCheck Spellingen the little white rats found admirers in the crowd! The Buffalo Pugs and Small Breed Rescue Organization found a home for one of their foundlings during the event! Yea!

The Emporium has acquired two new vendors as a result of the fair and we want to welcome Suz Colombo and her wonderful photography and Kellye Egan with her very clever dog and cat accessories. The bake sale ...OMG...the wonderful goodies that filled 4 large tables and raised money for the Cracker Box Palace were, without a doubt, the most irresistible and highly caloric treats of all...there went my good intentions and diet! Browse among the pictures and enjoy the sense of fun that we had. If you missed it this year, mark your calendar for next!

For further information or application to be a vendor (for free) at this event, call Doris Britt (585)323-1727 The proceeds from this show will be donated to the Cracker Box Palace, a non-profit organization which rescues and cares for animals in need. Donations gladly accepted.

Frequent Shoppers Reward Program

Starting on Monday, June 1st through September 30th, 2009 the L.W.Emporium will be holding our annual Frequent Shoppers Reward Program. It works like this: come in to the L.W.Emporium anytime between June 1st & Sept. 30th; fill out a card at the welcome desk with your name, address, phone number & email, if you have one; then every time you make a purchase, your card will receive a stamp...1 stamp for every $10 you spend. Once you earn 10 stamps, you will receive a $10 gift certificate. But that's not all! There is no limit to the number of stamps or gift certificates you can accumulate. And if you bring a friend with you who fills out a card, you will get an extra stamp...and if you bring in your postcard (if you are on the mailing list) you will get another extra stamp. If you are not on the mailing list, just mention that you saw it on the blog.

The L.W.Emporium has run this program for the last several years & it's been a smashing success. So come on in & fill out a card. It's a great way to get some lovely things for free. These days 'free' sounds especially good. All gift certificates must be redeemed by Nov. 1, 2009.
