Hoppy Easter from The Dandelion Patch!

Easter is just days away and the store is a beautiful color pallet of pastel chicks and fuzzy bunnies.

Hurry and fill up that Easter basket full of goodies from The Patch! Easter beaded braclets are some of the staff favs, although the bunny bath gel and little chic-a-dee necklaces are perfect for the lil' princess in your house (at least they are for mine!).

Balls, frogs and chocolate bars, anyone?

As you know, dry winter weather can be harsh on those lips. One of Oprah's favorite products (as well as ours) are these snazzy lip balms. Not only are they a bright spot in winter, the bright colors make it easy to find them in your bag or purse!

Want to know the secret to a happily married life? We believe this chocolate bar tells the truth! Who says 50/50 is equal? It's a perfect gag gift for that anniversary or Valentine's Day joke.

Aren't these the cutest? The only thing they're missing is the words that we all think when we see them in the store: "please take me home!" So, come in and do so! Adoptions available daily!
