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!
