Thanksgiving - A Time to Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday.  A time to relax with family and friends, enjoy conversation, no stress, visit memory lane with loved ones, or take a little nap after a wonderful meal.  I hope your day of giving thanks brings you much joy and renewed strength.

Paddywac's is open on Friday and Saturday 10-5.  So get in that mall visit or stand in line for that special gift and we will be ready for your visit.  We'll make it as relaxing, enjoyable and rewarding as we can.  The store is all spruced up with tons of new items, great gift ideas, scarves, new hats have come in, and so much more. We look forward to seeing you. 

Here are the pictures I promised.

Hope to see you soon.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Nic Nac Paddywac's - We are Open Thursday and Friday

We are rejecting the idea that the weekend after Thanksgiving has to be a frenzied, get up at 2:00 in the morning and rush to a huge shopping mall - where no one knows you- type shopping trip!  We don't open at 4 in the morning (actually, I'm sleeping then).  But we do open at 10:00 a.m.

We've restocked with furniture, tons of gift items, wall decor, linens, Polar Mitts, scarves, hats, jewelry, and lots more.  All Anoka shops are open and ready -

Please shop locally and support your area merchants. They're here for you!

It's been a very busy week and there has not been much time for pictures.  We work at the shop today on the final touches and I'll have more pictures later so be sure to check back!

See you soon!

Friday and it's Market Day at Paddywac's

Good Morning -

Actually, I took the title from my favorite moving, "Under the Tuscan Sun." While we're not in Italy we do have a fabulous shopping experience for you at Paddywac's. Trees are trimmed, twinkling lights in the window and a comfortable fireplace to set and rest a few minutes. 

Please join us in Anoka.

Some new dynamic wall decore - just brought it in.

LaDeeDa Design has moved into a new spot at Paddywac's.  Very upscale Boutique with a "Travel" theme.  It's towards the back of the store so be sure you explore the whole store. 

See you soon.

We've been preparing a feast for the eyes at Nic Nac Paddywacs this month.  Walls are decorated, Christmas trees are up, and there is a festive mood in Anoka.  Won't you join us this weekend for a fabulous Home Town shopping experience.

See you soon!

Saturday Evening with Friends

Yesterday was such a beautiful day and I wanted to share a part of it with everyone.  Tricia and I both took time from our busy schedule to be away from the store.  I went to Red Wing to spend the evening with friends from design school, which was a few years ago now.  But nonetheless, we keep in touch and spend an evening together when we can. 

We met up at Shannan's store in Red Wing, Moments on Main.  Friday evening was the big Holiday open house  but she extended an invitation to us as well.  Her shop is filled with the Christmas spirit.  Everywhere you looked there are wonderful gift items, jewelery, candles, napkins, home decorating ideas, spa items and so much more.  I managed to come home with a few treasures, and a Christmas gift. 

Hope you enjoy the pictures. I know she'd love to have you visit.

Thanks for visiting!
