Holiday Fair and Fundraiser!

Please click on the image to enlarge.

In the past, the fair has also had a silent auction, a kind of tag sale, self made goods. Please come! You can sample my very own muffins!

For You Yalie Parents...

Our beloved Toddler Tunes lead singer/guitarist, Robert Messore, is playing a show this weekend for Yale affliated families at the McDougal Center. If you're a Yalie parent, please check it out! Partiularly if your schedule does not allow for Robert's regular Wednesday Toddler Tunes gig. Your kids (and you!) will love it!

Grad/prof student & postdocs families with children can make simple winter crafts & enjoy interactive music with toddler tunes from Robert Messore. Snacks and drinks too!

Cyber Monday

Here are some helpful websites while trying to navigate this crazy day of online deals:

And one that might not be mentioned on those websites, Sandbox Threads (a personal favorite) is having a week-long "progressive" sale.

Another fave, Fooey, is going out of business and having great sales!

Happy shopping!
