May does not disappoint the senses. You don’t have to look very far, not only to see, but to smell the beauty that May flowers produce. Even a hillside filled with dandelions is enough to lighten up your day. Take a minute to unwind on a calm evening and listen for the buzzing of the bumble bees in the nearest flower garden. Spring is a refreshing time filled with new life and long overdue outdoor time. Emerald, the gemstone for the month of May, certainly follows suit. (more…)
On Black Friday, Goodman’s will be offering a limited supply of “doorbuster” gemstone-stud earrings for only $25. Plus, as a gift from us, the first one hundred customers that make a new-merchandise purchase of $495 or more will receive a jewelry travel roll. Of course, Black Friday is just one day. Let’s talk about the good things to come after that.
Among the things we love about being a small business in Madison are the meaningful connections we can build with the rest of the community. There’s a sense of family to it all. We are always looking for ways to nurture this family, particularly through charities that make Madison more livable for more people. So, as the “season of steals and deals” begins, we want to offer good things that go a little deeper than mere discounts. Starting on Black Friday and extending through the end of December, we will be donating a percentage of sales from our Sarah’s Hope Jewelry line to Gio’s Garden. Each Sarah’s Hope purchase will essentially turn into three gifts.
A gift to make your special someone smile. Sarah’s Hope is a gorgeous line of sterling silver and E’Sperene® stones set in sophisticated and versatile designs. Many of the bracelets, pendants, and rings offer interchangeable stones or can be reversed for even more versatility. We find that people who buy one piece tend to come back later for others. And they do so knowing that their purchase support, educate, and empower women around the world….
A gift to women working to stand on their own two feet. With proceeds from its sales, Sarah’s Hope Jewelry funds microloans and small business development programs for women in the USA and around the world. So your purchase can really make an impact. Imagine helping a struggling mother somewhere transition into a successful entrepreneur, all while you help a family right here in Madison….
A gift to struggling families of special needs children. Gio’s Garden works to strengthen families that have children with special needs (birth through 6 years). One way they do that is by providing respite care. This is not just a place to drop off the child so mom or dad can refresh. It’s a comfy haven of learning, nurturing, and love, where kids get individualized care that makes them feel good about being there. Gio’s Garden is striving now to grow into a one-stop special services delivery organization for children with special needs and their families.
A good gift becomes a great gift when it helps someone in need. Stop by between now and December, and find something beautiful for someone you love, that will do something beautiful for someone else!
