We announced our Eat, Poop, Love sweepstakes winner on our facebook page.
Congratulations to Christina from Victoria who won our $250 prize package! Christina is expecting a baby shortly so she said the boon feeding gear, bummi's cloth diapers and Raspberry Kids gift card would come in real handy.
We are also getting close to the end of our Raspberry Kids puts the GIVE in GIVEaway campaign which closes on November 30th, 2010. One lucky Raspberry Patch newsletter subscriber or Facebook fan will win a prize package valued at a minimum of $1000. We have recently selected the local charity who will be the recipient of the second $1000 prize package and we are thrilled to be donating lots of goodies to Crabtree Corner. Crabtree Corner Family Resource Centre provides programs and services for families who need them the most. Crabtree Corner helps women and their families improve the quality of their lives and we are so pleased to be able to contribute in a meaningful way to this wonderful cause.
OK, so this month's installment of local love isn't exactly local, however, they are readily accessible online and are definitely worthy of our love.
I've "met" fellow mompreneur, Grace Sanchez McCall through various online media and have to say I think she does a great job of procuring groovy clothes for boys and retails them in her online store: www.tykethreads.com
Between now and December 31st, 2010, enjoy 15% off at Tyke Threads using the code: RKIDSMMX

this month's ootmob
What the heck is an OOTMOB you ask? It stands for "Out Of The Mouth of Babes".Each month we will feature a cute quote, question or quip from one of our Raspberry Patch newsletter subscribers. Please email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we feature your OOTMOB, you will receive a $25 Raspberry Kids gift card.
This month's winning OOTMOB: "Where do babies come from?"
My 13 month old son was whining the other day and so my 3 year old daughter turned to me and said ...
"Oh, where did we find him (rolling her eyes)? Maybe we need to return him to Superstore!"
Enjoy your $25 Raspberry Kids gift card Danielle! Keep your ootmobs coming! We get a kick out of each and everyone of them.
shipping cut-offs, private shopping events & warehouse hours
For those of you that live afar, in order to guaranty your shipment arrives before Christmas, Canada Post has advised us that your orders must be placed by December 8th for the United States and by as early as December 11th in Canada! In some cases, that leaves less than two weeks if you plan to order and have your package shipped.
For you folks that live in or around Vancouver, we are pleased to offer several alternatives including:
1. Private Shopping Events: Designed for small groups, please contact us for available dates and times and to learn about our hostess and guest benefits. Please note we have limited Private Shopping Event slots still available.
2. Shop by appointment: Please contact us if you would like to shop by appointment during our regular business hours which are Monday to Friday from approximately 09:30 to 5:00.
3. Warehouse Weekends: Leading up to the holidays, we will be open on the following days ...
In December: 11, 12, 18 & 19 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
This past weekend, we took our kids to the North Pole and our kids had so much fun. I couldn't help but think of the similarities of Santa's workshop and the Raspberry Kids warehouse and the Elves and our Raspberry Kids team.
We are absolutely caught up in the spirit of the holidays and we look forward to assisting you with your gift giving needs.
As you would expect, it is a busy time of year and we are nearing the point of being unable to replenish stock in time for Christmas so we urge you to shop early for best selection. Obviously, I've got a bit of an inside track when it comes to shopping for the little ones in our lives but I still had a ball picking out some stocking stuffers and pressies I know our kids will love. Let the magic begin!
Thank you for reading and have a fresh, healthy & fun day. Today
and every day.
