We Will Miss You

At Anastasia's Attic we are like one big family. And sometimes members of the family need to spread their wings and leave the nest to do something else. This month we say good bye to the Henry sisters Olivia and Monica.

May's Employee Of The Month is........Monica!

Many of you may not know Monica as she only works part time. But if you have ever met her you will never forget her. She looks like she should be on the front of a fashion magazine. And Monica is beautiful on the inside as well. She is funny, and smart and very kind.
I have heard from more than one customer how much they like her and how sweet she is. And I think our single male shoppers has doubled since she started working with us...LOL
She is a wonderful addition to our team and we are so glad to have her with us. And just in case you see a bit of family resemblance...she and Olivia are sisters.
Thanks Monica for always give your best each time you work. There is a surprise gift waiting for you on your next shift!

Employee Of The Month

Hi, this is Cricket Manager of Anastasia's Attic. Hope all of you are started to see signs of spring. Here is Utah it's still snowing....yeah...I know...crazy!!! I am sitting at my desk watching it snow and listening to the birds chirp. I guess that means there is still hope Spring will eventually get to this part of the world!

April has been a busy month at Anastasia's Attic. Two of our wonderful ladies were on a fantastic vacation in Brasil and another is working her other job for a few months taking time off from us. Not only did and still do miss our ladies but it also left a whole lot of schedule to fill.

That brings me to........ "Employee Of The Month"

Liz Edmiston!

I am not sure where to start. Liz is not only beautiful, sweet, kind and loving. She is also
a wonderful mother, wife, daughter and friend. Her talents are so many I can't number them.
She has a very generous and giving heart. She is always thinking of ways to reach out and help another.
She is fun to be around and has a very calming way about her. She is always ready to jump in and lend
a hand where ever she is needed.

Liz was such a BIG help this month. She worked whatever hours we asked of her, never complaining.
She even surprised me one day and came by and told me to leave for 2 hours and she would work
for me while letting me stay on the clock. It was just what I needed and gave me a couple of hours to regroup and get some errands done. If she would have given me a sack of diamonds it would not have
been more valuble.

We are so glad Liz is a part of our Anastasia's Attic family, and from what I have been hearing so are our customers. Look at that smile. Who wouldn't want to be greeted by that.

Thank you sooooo much Liz for always bringing the best part of you to share with us.
We love you!!

Hope you like you beautiful Anne Koplik earrings. She is my favorite designer and I thought you might like them.

Thanks again for being such a wonderful part of our lives!

Happy Birthday Olivia

Happy Birthday Olivia or as I like to call you...
"Little Bit". We hope you are having a wonderful
birthday in Brasil. We miss you and can't wait to hear
all the stories that come with a fabulous trip like that!

With love from your Anastasia's Attic Family,
Tara, Cricket, April, Liz, Sharon and Wendy!

Manager's Pick For Employee Of The Month is starting to feel like spring.....well, at least some days it does. The ducks at Gardner Village are greeting me early each morning as I open the store. The robins are building nests and digging for worms trying to fatten themselves up for feeding all the little babies to come. Oh how I love my job!!

As manager of Anastasia's Attic I have the pleasure of doing so many really fun and uplifting things each day. One of my favorites is interacting with my co-workers. We have the best group of women in the world working there. And each month I get to pick my choice for "Employee Of The Month". Picking is not the hard part...picking just one is!!

This month however my choice is....... Olivia!

If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting her, you know that everything I am about to say is true.
Her smile brightens up the room. She is as smart as she is beautiful and WOW, is she beautiful! She looks like a little china doll and I have nick named her "Little Bit". Customers love her and she loves them in return. She has a heart of gold and is always looking for ways to give service to others in need.
She can always make me laugh. And I am always so happy to see her walk through the door to start her shift. She gives 100% to her family, friends, work and community.

We are so happy to have her as a part of our Anastasia's Attic family.

Each month my pick gets a small token of appreciation that I feel fits them. And knowing that Olivia loves the dresses at Target, I decided to give her a $25.00 gift certificate. I know she will have fun spending it and finding a cute dress to go with one of her many, many.... did I say MANY pieces of jewlery she has from Anastasia's Attic...LOL

Thank you Olivia for always giving us the best of yourself.
I speak for all of us when I say....We love you!

Be The Beauty

Anastasia’s Attic is thrilled to announce the launch of our charity commitment, Be the Beauty!

One of the core beliefs of Anastasia’s Attic is that “Beauty is the visual manifestation of love.” We also deeply believe that “the highest form of love is service.”

Through Be the Beauty, Anastasia’s Attic will partner with its customers, friends, and the community to create true and beautiful change by showing up in love and service to the world around us.

Each month, Anastasia’s Attic will organize and facilitate a specific service project, and will invite everyone to join with us in our commitment to “be the change we wish to see in the world.” Whether the need is at a local, state, national, or international level, we will do what we can here and now, and in so doing we will create a more beautiful world for everyone by giving the love of service.

We can make a difference.

We will make a difference!

We invite you to Be the Beauty—to stand with us as we put our beliefs into action and create a ripple of love and service…a ripple which will be felt from the center of our hearts, to the very ends of the earth.

This month, the Anastasia’s Attic Be the Beauty campaign consists of collecting hygiene kits for earthquake victims in Chile and Haiti. Each kit should contain one each of the following new items, enclosed in a gallon zip-lock bag:

1 Full-size bottle of shampoo

1 Toothbrush

1 Full-size toothpaste

1 Bar of antibacterial soap

1 Hand towel

1 Comb

From now until March 31, 2010, we will be collecting these much-needed hygiene kits at Anastasia’s Attic. At the end of the month we will deliver the hygiene kits to charities that will, in turn, put them into the hands of those who are so deserving of our love and assistance at this critical time.

And as a way to say “Thank You!” for choosing to make the world more beautiful through your commitment of love and service, when you drop off your donated hygiene kit(s), Anastasia’s Attic will give you a non-expiring coupon for 30% off any regular, in-stock item. Inquire at store for details.

So join the cause, spread the word, and Be the Beauty!

February Employee Of The Month

We have started something new at Anastasia's Attic. Managers pick for Employee of the month. As Manager of Anastasia's Attic I work very closely with the ladies who work there. We are all very close and love to tease each other and have a little fun. We are all different ages and at different stages of our lives ( I'm the old one...LOL) But the one thing that we do share is our love for Anastasia's Attic. I know how lucky I am to have the best team working with me in the magical place we call our home away from home.

You can only imagine how hard it was to pick one and only one. But I just reminded myself that each month I will get to pick a different wonderful lady to be employee of the month. And let her know how much I love and appreciate her.

Sooooooo February picks is.....April!!

As a few of you may know earlier this month I was very sick and had to take a few days off from work. April stepped right in and took over. She made schedule changes, took care of phone calls, deliveries, and all kinds of assorted other things that I usually do. I didn't have to worry for one minute that things wouldn't be taken care of. She called to check up on me, asked what more she could do for me personally or the store. It was so nice to be able to rest and do as the doctors said.

April you are such a joy to be around. The customers love you and so do the rest of us. Thank you for all you do to make our team the winning one that it is!!!

With love and appreciation....Cricket!!

* As employee of the month, April was awarded a beautiful watch by our new designer Theresa Mason*

Anastasia's Attic wants to wish the most wonderful birthday ever to Cricket Heffron, our beautiful, brilliant, and amazing manager. Today she turns 50, and we think it's been some of the best 50 years the earth has even seen! All of you who have had the chance to meet Cricket in the store know what a phenomenal person she is, and what a tremendous gift she has in making each person feel loved and valued. The only way to explain such a marvelous person as Cricket, is that God must have given her an extra dose of "AWESOMENESS!" We celebrated with a fantastic 50's theme party thrown for Cricket by her husband, and spent the night dancing, laughing, and singing 1950's era karaoke. We are so blessed to have her as our manager and friend, and we love her more than she will ever know! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
