Hurricane Sandy - Our Hearts Go Out to Those Affected

Last week's storm affected many on the east coast, and while we were affected with no electric or heat, that does not even compare to the loss & devastation endured by so many.  Our thoughts and hearts go out to all of those affected.

We have been donating non-perishable food items, baby supplies, & more for families on Long Island as well as donating to the American Red Cross.  If you would like to make a donation to the Red Cross, you can simply visit their website here:

You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and tornadoes.

We are collecting Backpacks for children affected by the hurricane for a few gals here on Long Island that are coordinating this and will distribute these to kids in need.  For every backpack we collect, we will give you a $15 credit to our store at  These will be distributed next week, and if you would like to send in a new or lightly used kids backpack, you can send them to us at:
