Packing Parties Throughout the Panhandle--Operation Christmas Child 2010

Posted by  | December 9, 2010  at 3:29 PM  
We shopped, we socialized, we packed--whether you packed one box or hundreds for Operation Christmas Child, you know that somewhere a child is anxiously awaiting a box that you packed. I delivered the shoeboxes from my "Champagne and Shoeboxes" packing party to Covenant Baptist Church in Shepherdstown, WV (one of the local collection sites, who also held a big packing party) and was amazed by the U-Haul filled to the brim with nothing but shoeboxes! Everyone at the collection site was incredibly friendly and very enthusiastic about the program. I was so inspired by the volunteers that when I left I instantly started thinking up ideas for next year.

I encourage everyone to pack a box for next year or even host a party! A special thanks to my dear friends who came to my packing party: I couldn't have filled the boxes without you! We had a blast sorting through all of our purchases and reminiscing about the toys and accessories we liked when we were young.

Girls world-wide love Lip Smackers, right?


We successfully packed 12 boxes full of treats for Girls between the ages of 10 and 14. The Operation Christmas Child website gives you the option to place a tracker on your box, so you can find out which country it goes to. I can't wait to see the places they'll go!

The 3/50 Project & Small Business Saturday--Shopping Local is "In" This Holiday Season

Posted by  | November 18, 2010  at 4:08 PM  
A Big Day for Small Business

This holiday season as you gear up for some serious shopping, the chicest thing you can do is shop local.  In an effort to support local businesses, American Express Open has declared the Saturday after Thanksgiving  Small Business Saturday.

One of the reasons I started this site, was to help spread the word about all of the incredible businesses we have right here in the 4-state area. In an effort to help promote Small Business Saturday I will be running a post next week on local businesses running specials for this event. So, if you are a small business owner running a promotion or if you know of any, please email me by Tuesday (11/23), so I can put it all together for a Pre-Thanksgiving post ( richele@prettyinthepanhandle.com

And while Small Business Saturday is just one day, don't forget the 3/50 project approach to supporting small, local businesses throughout the year. All you have to do is think of 3 independently owned stores you love, spend $50 per month locally, et voilà--you've helped save the local economy!

See below for more facts on the 3/50 project, and don't forget to email me those Small Business Saturday specials!

Host an Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

Posted by  |   at 1:29 PM  

There’s nothing like opening a new shoebox and glancing down at a fresh pair of stilettos that have yet to be marred by city sidewalks and sudden downpours. As time passes, though, so does that new stiletto thrill, and more often than not that same magical shoebox is tossed aside or trashed. But for a less fortunate child, a shoebox from Operation Christmas Child (OCC), can hold items that are much more magical than any pair of Manolos.

OCC is a Samaritan’s Purse project that delivers goody-filled shoeboxes to children around the world. You’ll also be able to track your shoeboxes to see where they go, and I think it’s safe to say that your shoebox will cover far more miles than your stilettos ever will. Collection week runs November 15-22, so if you don’t have any extra shoeboxes I think this is an excellent excuse to acquire a new one, right? Participating in OCC takes only 5 steps that, truth be told, are probably easier than walking in 5 inch heels.


1. Find a shoebox

2. Figure out if your box is for a boy or girl

3. Fill ‘er up!

4. Include a $7 donation

5. Find a drop off location by clicking here.

I will be hosting my own "Champagne & Shoeboxes" packing party next Saturday--I reorganized my shoe collection and have tons of empty boxes that need re-purposed! My goal is to pack at least 12 boxes for girls in the 10-14 range. So far I've found some great items on sale and have a few more tricks up my sleeve (i.e. mini friendship bracelet kits). If you have any ideas or know of any businesses that would like to donate some goodies, send me an email  (richele@prettyinthepanhandle.com) or leave a comment below. Also, if you host or attend a packing party, send me pictures and I'll post them on the site!

Tony's Flea Market--Moorefield's Best Kept Secret

Posted by  | October 29, 2010  at 2:24 PM  
Whether you're en route to one of West Virginia's notable national parks, checking out the new Route 55, or just out for a Sunday drive--you'll want add Tony's Flea Market to your itinerary. Located on Main Street Moorefield, Tony's is easy to find and there's a nice turnaround spot should you drive past, see something that catches your eye, and then decide to go back to check things out (not that I speak from experience or anything).

Tony's has a little of anything and everything, with some exceptional finds in the mix. Prices are very reasonable, and owner Tony Crossland is fantastic to deal with. I spotted a couple of mid-century chairs that I desperately needed, but couldn't quite fit in the Mini (story of my life). I discussed my dilemma with Tony, who had just the plan in mind. He advised that he would be in Berryville, VA, the next day if I wanted to find a larger vehicle and fetch them there since it's just a tad closer than Moorefield. Tony's plan worked flawlessly, and I am now the proud owner of two, early Herman Miller shell chairs that I snagged for $50 a piece! Fret not, I left plenty of great finds behind including two yellow Herman Miller chairs.

2010 Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk

Posted by  | October 21, 2010  at 2:25 PM  
Saturday, October 16, 2010, War Memorial Park in Martinsburg, WV, was the site for the Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Over 200 walkers--with ages spanning over 70 years--completed the one mile walk and raised over $23,000!

Coffee, juice, and breakfast treats were provided by Eight O'Clock Coffee, Chik-Fil-A of Martinsburg, Panera Bread of Ranson, and Martin's Grocery of Martinsburg. There was also a raffle for several prizes including a quilt made from Memory Walk t-shirts from previous years.

The walk kicked off with a moving rendition of the National Anthem
sung by Natalia Eyestone, and one couldn't help but notice several walkers wiping away tears as they looked upward towards the stars and stripes: it was a moment to honor not just this country, but the loved ones we were walking for as well.

Donations for the Eastern Panhandle Memory Walk are still being accepted, but at $23,000 (and counting!) this was the most successful walk the Eastern Panhandle has had to date!

While this year's walk is over, details are already in the works for next year's event, which will  be called the "Walk to End Alzheimer's." Our local chapter is always looking for volunteers, so if you're interested in helping plan next year's event please contact Pam Shriver at pam.shriver@alz.org --perhaps I'll see you at the next meeting!

Ruffian by Loretta Dovell Bailey
October 15, from 4-6PM, Washington Street Gallery & Gift  in Charles Town, WV, will be kicking off their Equine Art Exhibit by hosting a reception with featured artist, Loretta Dovell Bailey. Bailey is the official artist of the West Virginia Breeder's Classic, which will be held on Saturday, October 16, at the Charles Town Race Track--post time is 7:15 PM.

Bailey's work will be on display through mid-November with prints and note cards available for purchase.

Please see below for Washington Street Gallery's official press release for further information.


Equine Art Exhibit and Reception
Coincides With West Virginia Breeders Classics XXIV

CHARLES TOWN, WV, October 4, 2010 – Loretta Dovell Bailey, who has been the official artist of the West Virginia Breeders Classics since its inception 24 years ago, is bringing her work to Washington Street Gallery & Gift in Charles Town. Her exhibit will coincide with this year’s Classics, and will run from October 14 until mid-November. An artist reception will be held Friday, October 15, 4-6 PM, at the gallery.

“We are bringing back the tradition of holding an equine art exhibit in conjunction with the Classics,” Bailey says, “and I am very excited to have my paintings in Charles Town’s new gallery.” The gallery also will carry her prints and note cards, along with equine art by others. Bailey hopes to spend time actually painting in the gallery that Saturday afternoon, October 16.

The West Virginia Breeders Classics was begun in 1987 by Washington Redskins Hall-of-Famer Sam Huff and Carol Holden. For more than 10 years, an art exhibit had been part of the event. “We are delighted to host Loretta at our gallery, which is an all-local venue, and what’s more local than horses?” says gallery owner and horse-lover Susan Ford Pritchard.

Washington Street Gallery & Gift is Jefferson County’s only all-local gallery with work by more than 50 artists, artisans and authors. Located at 235 West Washington Street in the heart of downtown Charles Town, hours during the Breeders Classics weekend are: Thursday and Friday 12-6, Saturday 11-5, and Sunday 12-4.

2010 Apple Butter Festival

Posted by  |   at 2:03 PM  

October 9 and 10, Berkeley Springs, WV, hosted the 37th Annual Apple Butter Festival. While the bubbling vats of spiced apple butter may be the namesake for the festival, I must confess that the hog calling contest is what I'll be marking on my calendar for 2011. You may be familiar with the general hog call of "suey" but there is much more to this contest than a simple shout. This is definitely an event you have to see to believe. I had heard that the hog calling was one of the highlights of this festival, but was skeptical. I am a skeptic no longer...

A prize winning trio from Alabama took home
first place in the adult division, with a call complete with a kickline! The junior winner decided to harken his hog with demands of hunger--he really wanted some bacon. And one group of young ladies shouted suey and what do you know, but a piglet appeared!


This may have been my first hog calling contest, but it will not be my last. Who knows I may even participate next year :)

Girl Scout Council's 2010 Women of Distinction Luncheon

Posted by  | October 5, 2010  at 3:56 PM  
Wednesday, September 29, 2010, the annual Women of Distinction Luncheon was held at the Holiday Inn, in Martinsburg, WV. Each year the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital recognizes several women in the Shenandoah Region for their outstanding contributions to the community, and who are seen as exemplary role models for girls (and women in general for that matter). This year's recipients were Betty Lou Harmison, Sheila Hamilton, and Becky Linton: I cannot do these women justice in listing their accomplishments, but you can read their profiles on the Girl Scout's website by clicking here.

Sponsors for this year's luncheon included the Bank of Charles Town, Pennington Auto, The Meltzer Group, and HMS Technologies. The banquet room at the luncheon was trimmed in aqua and white with arrangements of white calla lilies, carnations, and stargazer lilies on the tables. Guests were served broiled salmon in a dill sauce with steamed asparagus and a couscous mélange. In addition, each attendee received a gift bag complete with a box of Girl Scout cookies.

Proceeds from the luncheon will be donated to the Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship Endowment, which will benefit local Girl Scouts who have earned the Gold Award, by helping them fund some of their college expenses.

"The Gold Award is the highest honor that can be achieved by a Girl Scout. These girls have demonstrated a commitment to community service by meeting eligibility requirements, creating a unique project and dedicating a minimum of 65 hours to accomplish the project."

Former Women of Distinction recipients look on as this year's honorees are awarded their WOD pins.

Can you handle the spice?

Retrodini Vintage Clothing & Oddities--I see the past in your future...

Posted by  | September 24, 2010  at 12:54 PM  
While many vintage stores just sell clothing and accessories, Retrodini offers shoppers the full vintage experience. Located in their new spot on North Washington Street in Berkeley Springs, WV, Retrodini sells everything from vintage clothing to kitchen wares to replica toys and trinkets. They also have a few snazzy pieces of mid-century futniture that I had my eye on, but given the limited room in my Mini Cooper, I would have had to leave my passengers behind, which was awfully tempting: just kidding!*

So what's the skinny on Retrodini?

Placement: There is definitely a lot to take in when you walk in the store. When
 you first enter your immediate reaction is to just stop and stare at everything in wonderment. Perhaps it's because I'm somewhat of a vintage junkie, but I pretty much felt like a kid in a candy shop--a 1950's candy shop that is. Everything is neatly arranged by size and category, but you'll still want to do a few laps of the store before you get down to serious shopping.

Prices: The prices here are definitely reasonable, even for the furniture. Also, when you make a purchase you receive a frequent shopper card: for every $5 you spend you receive a mark and after you spend $50 you get 15% off your next purchase!

Pieces: Did I mention I loved the furniture? Aside from the furniture, I saw some really neat kitchen accessories and linens, LOVED the hat selection, and I found a mint 1950's Saks Fifth Avenue dress that came home with me.

Retrodini alone is worth a trip to Berkeley Springs; however, next time I will be bringing a bigger vehicle, and perhaps taking some time to explore the rest of the town.
