Crazy Days are here again!!!...




I remember Crazy Days downtown fondly and vividly from my childhood. It was a tradition. A must, on our summer to-do list. We would make sure to get downtown bright and early to find the best things, stop at Mary Anna's bakery for some doughnuts, and shop until we were starving for lunch. We'd usually pop down and eat at Olde` Town Cafe, where I would always eat my favorite grilled cheese and Tatar tots. The rest of the afternoon, we would spend browsing and shopping through downtown. Crazy Days was an EVENT!

That was a long time ago. I won't say how long, because a girl must never reveal her age... Things have changed a bit downtown since then. Mary Anna's bakery, is now First Burger, and Olde` Town Cafe is now Clemenza's, but for us, Crazy Days is still an EVENT!

We start working on getting our Crazy Days merchandise all ready for our sale weeks in advance. It gives us a chance to part with things that just didn't sell during the regular seasons. It also gives you a chance to make some of our lemons your lemonade! Because let me tell you, at 20-90% off, you can't beat the prices on what we've got!

This year just may be, our biggest and craziest sale of all, as I've been feeling quite ruthless with the older merchandise, ready to start fresh and bring in new!

So, tell your friends... invite your girlfriends downtown for the day, and make your own new tradition... grab a cup of coffee, and some breakfast at one of the great restaurants, and come SHOP!!! It will be an EVENT I PROMISE!

Hope to See you this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, for CRAZY DAYS!
