2012 Retiring Product List

Just wanted to quickly post the Retiring List. It includes the Close To My Heart products that are “Going… going… and in some cases, already GONE" in order to make room for our all new Autumn/Winter products.

You can order any of these items via My Online Shopping Cart. You can also connect with me personally by email/phone. Whichever way you choose to order, be sure do it before August 1, because after that date, these products will no longer be available.
