Faith United Methodist Church is planning a Ladies Night Out fundraising event on Thursday, September 10th from 6-8pm. Vendors are donating a portion of their revenue for the evening to our church’s outreach program. I look forward to getting some of my holiday shopping taken care of and a fun and relaxing night with friends, and I hope some of you will be able to make it! Everyone is welcome, and we hope you will bring your friends. Admission is free and childcare is provided while you shop.
More details: Faith United Methodist Church is located on the corner of Dry Gap Pike and Rifle Range Road at 1120 Dry Gap Pike, Knoxville, TN 37918. (865) 688-1000. www.faithseekers.org
I’ve included information on the vendors below. I’ve also added links to the websites whenever applicable.
Avon—If you think that Avon only sells make-up, you are in for a surprise! I was impressed with the jewelry that they have in their catalog.
Celebrating Home—Everyone who has told me about Celebrating Home has raved about their candles! I look forward to picking some up for some special people on my holiday list.
Curves—They will be giving out some free one week trials to the gym. I am very much looking forward to trying it out! There will also be a chance to win a FREE MONTH!
Homemade Gourmet—In addition to gourmet and up-scale food mixes, they offer a bundle deal to help save some money.
Knoxville Soap & Candle Company—I have a friend who moved to Indiana, and every time she comes back through Knoxville will visit this store. Not only do they offer great soaps and candles, but their specialty gift selection is terrific.
La Selva MedSpa—I am thrilled that they will be coming! They will have massage therapists present to make the evening even more relaxing. I will be first in line! Even the music on their website is relaxing.
Longaberger-- Everyone I know who has owned one of these baskets talks about how well they are made. I look forward to seeing some in person.
Mary Kay—I love this company for how they empower women! The Satin Hands gift set makes a wonderful gift.
Pampered Chef—If you do not get any other item from Pampered Chef, I’d like to recommend their trifle bowl as a must have. I use trifle dishes for a lot of recipes, and I was always so frustrated with how I had to store them. The Pampered Chef trifle has a pedestal that fits inside of the bowl AND a lid for easy storage.
Premiere—The jewelry on their website is amazing. I look forward to finding out more about their company.
Private Quarters—You’ll find luxurious bedding and bath accessories on their website. Looks dreamy! (I know, bad pun, but it is true!)
Rainwater Farm—Not only am I happy to have Colette joining us because she is a local business, but also because her soaps are amazing. One year for Christmas, I made up gift baskets with an assortment of soaps for friends and neighbors, and they were a huge hit. E-mail her for more information-- firstname.lastname@example.org
Southern Living at Home—Love the Southern Living magazine? Well, you are in for a treat. I have a friend who has most of their entertaining pieces, and when she throws a party, it looks professional.
Tastefully Simple—I have a friend who raves about their soup mixes. These products sound like they would be handy for hostess gifts or a quick recipe to bring to a potluck.
Thirty-One—Check out the bags on their website! I have a college student that I mentor, and I plan to pick up one for her.
Tupperware—My favorite item in the catalog is their sandwich keeper. We have been impressed with how well the ones we have had held up over the years.
Uppercase Living—Does that wall space in your kitchen need a little pizzazz? Check out the Uppercase Living catalog to get the designer look for a lot less.
Usborne Books—I hosted a book party a year ago, and I received enough free books for most of my young relatives for the holidays. We love their Spanish DVD, and my nephews went on and on about how cool the dinosaur books were.
