Inventory Reduction Sale!

As you may know I have Homemade Gourmet and Usborne Books in my home, since I am an independent consultant with both companies. For tax purposes, I always like to run an Inventory Reduction Sale the last week of December. Well, for the first time we’re going to grandma’s in Florida the week after Christmas.


You get the benefit of this sale BEFORE CHRISTMAS. From now until Christmas Eve, anything in my inventory for either Usborne Books or Homemade Gourmet is 25% OFF and for Homemade Gourmet  products there’s no shipping!

Call or stop by to shop! 

If you are reading this and don’t have my address and phone number, leave a comment and I will receive an email, so we can communicate that way.
