cut becomes decorative -

Lots of mark-downs including Smoking Lily tunics and skirts and Little Houses clothing.

See you Saturday.

the Burl in the news!

We've been thrilled with the awesome media coverage our little pop up venture has generated. One of them disclosed an (unknown to us) marital swap that set tongues a wagging, very likely accounting for that line up at the door the next day.

Shameless self promoters that we are, here are links to a recent Yukon News article and a CBC TV piece in case you missed them. (What, you don't get NorthBeat in Vladivostok?) Thanks Tara and Roxanne for helping get the word out.
