Grandparents Day Gift Ideas

As you begin your search for Grandparent’s Day gift ideas, have a little fun and join our Facebook Grandparent’s Day contest.

Grandparent’s Day was established in 1978 to celebrate the important role grandparents play in the lives of family. The second Sunday in September, Grandparent’s Day is on Sept. 7, 2014.

In recognition of grandparents, our contest highlights are in the video link below. Follow the Orange Slice Contest link to watch and enter by August 24, 2014. The orange slice is our companies “mascot” for grandparents. When I was a little girl, Grandma’s candy dish was a symbol of all the sweetness that was Grandma’s house. It has been the inspiration from many of my companies sentimental gifts.

Check out our weekly deals where we will feature popular grandparent gifts for great prices. This week we are featuring our Grandparent’s Memory Book– a must have keepsake for every family.

Life Lessons Radio: Our Beginnings!

I am often asked how I stared my business.

Where did the idea come from?

How did you know what to do to get started?

How do you continue to know what to do?

The honest answer is “I don’t know!” I do know where the idea came from. A moment 24 years ago, when my Mom was swooning over her first grandchild, and I told her she should open a store and call it “Grandma’s House” and have it filled with wonderful grandma things.

But the rest, it is one step at a time and it has been a lot of steps… 18 years worth of steps and missteps. All marching to the same goal, filling a “store” with wonderful things, not always for grandma, but certainly things a grandmother would love for her family.

I have found over the years, the path becomes less overgrown and clear when following a calling or a passion, it ignites energy, becomes contagious and makes you purposeful. When you lose the passion, you lose your direction and momentum. You look to others to get you back on track. But sometimes like a well-intentioned GPS, you still veer off course!

If you have, or thinking of starting your own business. Take your passion and move it forward a little each day..one step at a time.

I recently had the chance to talk about how I started my business and some of the ideas and inspirations that have given us some staying power. I was interviewed by Rick with Gracefully Yours who has a radio show called Life Lessons Radio.

It was a great conversation and it gave me a chance to reflect on the path I have taken and how many changes have happened over the course of nearly 20 years in business.
