There are plenty of changes due this year while shopping when new bagging laws take effect. Hawaii has already banned plastic bags, as well as many cities in California, New York and Texas, and even many countries such as India, Germany, Japan and Australia. Plastic bags are such a convenience when we shop, but unfortunately they are destructive to the environment. Just driving down any street you are sure to see at least one littering the road or decorating a tree.

Throughout the ages, some symbols keep recurring and also keep their original intended meaning. One of those is the heart.
In traditional art and folklore, the heart symbol seems to have always been drawn as a stylized shape. The fact that it is called a heart is somewhat controversial, since it only vaguely resembles the human heart. The question is often asked "Why isn't the heart symbol depicted by the actual shape of the human heart organ?"

The snows have come, and they will be with us for a while. While this may have a negative impact on bricks and mortar stores in parts of the country that have snow, it offers a great opportunity to all shop owners. Many shoppers increase their browsing and shopping on line during these times when it is cold and the weather outside is frightful, and that can make for some delightful sales opportunities.

Lockets have been around for centuries, a vessel to hold a precious keepsake or memento. The Victorian Era, however, more than any period brought lockets into vogue and lockets from this time frame are some of my most favored. I believe lockets to be the ultimate gift of love and romance!
