Black Friday Sale & Holiday Hours

This year we are going to try something a little different for Black Friday. We are going to be highlighting certain items for our Black Friday Sale and giving a deeper discount. The plan is to offer the same sales on the same items both in-store and online. However, we're still trying to figure out how to implement some aspects of what we want to do on the website. Worst case scenario, we will make manual adjustments to your checkout total when we fulfill your order and your card will be charged less than indicated at checkout. We plan on sending out another Newsletter next week (probably on Wednesday) to let you know exactly what the sales will be.

We will be spending time out of state with family during the week leading up to Thanksgiving so that we will be back to man the store for Black Friday. However, the store will be open in our absence. Here's what Little Padded Seats' store hours will be next week:

Tuesday10am - 6pm (Normal Hours)
Wednesday10am - 4pm
ThursdayClosed for Thanksgiving

Beginning Black Friday, we will be open for extended Holiday Hours.

Tuesday10am - 8pm
Wednesday10am - 8pm
Thursday10am - 8pm
Friday10am - 8pm
Saturday10am - 8pm

This is our first Christmas season in a storefront, so depending on how things play out this schedule might change.

Holiday Open Houses & Wreath Auction

Valley Junction will hold three Holiday Open House events this Christmas season. These will be November 19th, December 3rd and December 10th. Come see the streets lit up with over 150,000 lights, enjoy carolers strolling the streets, let the little ones visit with Santa and Mrs. Clause, and take a free horse drawn carriage ride with the family. Merchants will be open until 9:00pm during these events.

This year, the merchants' association is partnering with Hospice of Central Iowa and raising money through a wreath auction. Merchants have decorated wreaths which will be on display beginning November 19th. A few wreaths will be chosen to be in a live auction during the last Holiday Open House on December 10th. The rest will be in a silent auction also ending on December 10th. Bid sheets will be in the stores with the wreaths.

1st Annual Green Gifts Fair was a success!

We would like to say 'Thank You' to everyone who attended the First Annual Green Gifts Fair last weekend. You helped make this event a success!

We saw many local vendors with great green gifts! We bought a few ourselves! This event was very well attended. The organizers are already talking about doubling the amount of space available for next year's event!
