Trollbeads are unique, artisan-designed beads that represent many facets of life. Each trollbead has a story unto itself. By arranging your favorite trollbeads on a bracelet or necklace, you can tell a story with each new bead you add.

The One Gift Campaign

I wanted to wish you Happy Holidays from me and from everyone at The Dandelion Patch.

This year, we've been heavily involved in trying to encourage our customers to shop at small businesses. It's good for you, it's good for the community, and it's good for us. With the holiday season here, we're asking you look over your list of the 20 or 30 gifts you're going to buy this year (from family to friends to co-workers) and purchase just one of those gifts from The Dandelion Patch. We're asking for just one gift, and we're asking you to imagine the impact you can make - and thanks of course to those of you who started shopping early.

From December 7th through December 12th, we're offering 20% off everything storewide*, in all four of our locations (Vienna, Reston, Georgetown, Leesburg). On top of that, American Express is also running a small business promotion for the first time ever. Until the end of the year, they're giving $25 back to cardholders who shop at small stores during the holidays. The Dandelion Patch is one of those stores. By shopping with us, and using your American Express card, you'll get $25 back on your statement at the end of the month.

As a small business owner, I was also interviewed by Network Solutions as one of the small business champions. You can view the interview here.

Enjoy the holidays, the time spent with family and friends, and the gift-giving process. And here's wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

Warmest regards,
