Local Luxuries!

We love and will always love our Internet buyers and customers that aren't local, but one of the perks of being local is our store (duh :). They have the pleasure of walking in, picking something out, and BOOM- they are done and off to the next activity (wearing super cute clothes).

Another perk (besides getting to see us) is our little addition to our store...and the one thing in the store that is NOT Shrimp and Grits Kids.... TEMPLETON SILVER! Rhett (the founder and owner) is one of Megan's good friends and so, of course, we were dying to have some of her things in our store (it doesn't hurt that they are absolutely precious).
A little background:

Rhett began this business in 2007 (same year as Megan :) when her children's pacifiers continued to fall out. They fall out, she has to clean them, and sometimes throw them away...(Annoying). SO, being creative (how all these people got this creative gene and I got nothing doesn't really seem fair, does it?) she decided to come up with something that appeals to both Mom and baby and also keeps the pacifier off of the floor. The result?

Okay, so that's not the best picture, but you get it! They are cute little pacifier holders that turn into a bracelet for Mom when they aren't being used! Perk 1- you won't lose it because it is on your wrist. Perk 2- Pretty jewelry that also is functional? Yes, Please! The official name for these is the Heirloom Bijou Bracelet!

For a better look (other than the not-so-great picture above), check out the website www.templetonsilver.com.

My favorite part?

"Now, the Heirloom Bijou Bracelet® has not only received local media attention, it’s been featured in top trade magazines, was shown on MSNBC, The Doctors TV Show, Dr. Phil, and Rachael Ray as well as receiving compliments from Hollywood’s Jennie Garth, Nancy O’Dell, Jaime Pressly, Camila Alves & Matthew McConaughey, and Dr. Phil’s wife Robin McGraw."

That's IMPRESSIVE! I mean, if you ever need someone to go on Dr. Phil or Rachael Ray to help you promote...I wouldn't mind :)!

Unfortunately, these are only available in our store..we can't do Internet orders for them so if you're in Mt Pleasant, come by and get one! If not, order online through www.templetonsilver.com! You won't regret it..no more nasty pacifiers on the ground...:)

P.S. Happy Wednesday!
