Incentive Thank You Basket

While an order is not required, many of you are very regular in placing orders and I sincerely thank you for that. I appreciate all orders, big or small. It goes a long way in helping offset the cost of putting on these events. I appreciate you and I want to continue to see all you regularly. To help you help me, I am establishing a “Thank You Basket” that you can choose items from when you place an order at the Clubhouse Party. I would love it if you could help me. For a $30 order you can pick one item from the basket, $60, 2 items and $90 or more, 3 items.

Bring a new friend to me and receive a special gift!Bringing a friend is another way to earn a trip to the “Thank You Basket!” Bring 1 friend, pick 1 item, 2 friends, pick 2 and 3 or more, 3 items.

Adhesives are available for purchase at the event.
