Serve Austin Sunday (Nov 29th)

It's that time again, a month with a fifth Sunday. Our church, Austin New Church, will not be having a morning service this Sunday, November 29th. Instead we will be serving and loving our city at six different projects. Roger and I will be joining our community group to continue the renovation of the Soli Deo Gloria building so we can better serve the poor and marginalized of East Austin from 3-5pm (4th/Pedernales). This project is full but if you would like to join another project you can see the others at the church website by clicking on Restore Austin then Serve Austin Sunday or read a post from our church's blog about Serve Austin Sunday. Both locations have instructions for how to sign up for a project. Thanks!

Holiday Bazaars, Fairs and Open Houses

I have been invited to quite a few holiday open houses, bazaars and fairs this holiday season. Some Saturdays I have two to choose from. I really like setting up a table and displaying a custom J. Hilburn shirt and one of our Luxury Blend Cashmere sweaters because so far I have been the only vendor with products and holiday gift ideas for men. Our gift cards for a custom shirt are so popular with the ladies perusing these bazaars because their shopping for a birthday or Christmas gift for their husband, boyfriend, father, etc is done. The gift cards never expire and they all think it's such a cool gift to give a gentleman. Plus I can give them the $20 new customer discount on the gift card which ends November 15th. I will be at a holiday open house tomorrow night from 4pm-9pm with six other vendors of great products and hand made items for everyone on your shopping list. There will be special offers, yummy snacks and a free gift just for attending. Bring a friend and shop in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Click on the link below for more information. If you have a holiday event coming up in your neighborhood or at your child's school, please let me know. ~Holly
