The Week of November 15th with Lupine Lane


Hello!


I wanted to mention our Gingerbread Events that are approaching! We will be holding Gingerbread Events in most of our locations throughout December. Check our calendar for all of the locations, dates and times, and be sure to sign up in advance, since "drop ins" are not guaranteed! We are offering family events in the mornings and "drop off" events for just the kids in the afternoons! These are sure to be lots of fun and everyone will leave with a beautiful, delicious Gingerbread House to display through the Holiday Season!


Also, with the Holidays approaching, I wanted to also mention our Kid Kits! Kid Kits are art projects "to go!" Each Kid Kit contains everything a child needs to create a unique art project. Children can literally take the kit outside, since everything needed in included! Kid Kits make perfect Hannukah, Christmas and Birthday gifts for kids! Right now, all existing Kid Kits, found on our website, are deeply discounted! We can also make custom kits just for you! Just email Lauren at lboyle@lupinelane.com.
