Farmhouse Sugar Mold Centerpiece

Pin It
I recently went to Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta, GA.  My friend Katharine and I bought farmhouse sugar molds, both 12 cup molds.  She paid $35 and it has a rustic metal stand. I paid $2 per hole ($24) no stand.  I think we both got great deals.

 I decided to fill mine with flowers for Thanksgiving.

Here is what the Sugar Mold looks like empty

 This photo is via Napa Style and their Sugar Molds run $99 for 6 holes and $189 for 12 holes.  I have seen them in many shops for a minimum of $100.  Ebay and Etsy also sell them.  What a fun idea to serve paper cones with treats, for any holiday or event in your stand.

Here are the cups that the sugar was molded in.
Mexican Imports sells them too!

Customer Service Story

Pin It
I shared this over on Scatter Girls but thought everyone here might enjoy the story

I want to share a great customer service story with you.  Many times when I shop there is a huge lack of customer service even down right rude associates and every now and again there is a shining light that surprises me.  

I ordered two shirts from Lands End Canvas about 4 weeks ago on line.  I even went out on the internet and googled for a coupon code, which I found for $10 off a $50 purchase and FREE shipping. My order totaled just over $45 with my discount.   It arrived and the shirts were just want I wanted, I washed them right away and wore both the first week.

THEN..............

This came in the mail 


REALLY a thank you note - and not just a thank you note but HANDWRITTEN for an internet order that I bought sale merchandise and used a coupon code for to further reduce what I spent.  I could not believe it, I was so impressed, I'm still impressed, so impressed that I saved the note for this post.  Not to mention the card was made of kraft paper and just fun!

Here's what Ms. Judy wrote!!!


Have you had a GREAT customer service experience?  
Please share your story so we can shop at those stores too!!

PS: Since the note I've ordered two more shirts, one for me and one for my daughter!!
