Black Friday lurking around the corner...

Monday, November 16, 2015 12:33:17 PM America/Denver

!!! Black Friday !!!

Are you one of those fanatics who stands in a long line of competitive people for 5 hours just to get $10 off that new curling iron that you’ve been dying to get?? Black Friday is the day that marks the big Christmas shopping rush for most people. It has become almost a bigger deal, and tradition, than Thanksgiving itself! 

Almost all stores come out with the biggest, best deals to get people to literally fight to give them money!

So why is it called Black Friday? Other than the fact that many people walk away from it with a black eye or two. ;)

Well here is the story behind the riot! The black portion of the name, "Black Friday" relates to businesses recording their losses in red ink and gains in black. This tradition lives on in modern accounting software, hence the name. As for the Friday portion of the name, most of the sales start and are only active on Friday, although some stores start their sales on Thursday (Thanksgiving) and even Wednesday. So now you know!


Speaking of sales... Check out our Monthly outfit Mrs. Holly Harvest with it's amazing discounted price!



 Have fun and be safe in your black Friday adventures! And don’t forget to give thanks! :)

Something wicked this way comes!

Thursday, October 8, 2015 10:57:23 AM America/Denver

It's that time of year again! The day is soon at hand for the goblins and vampires come out to spook and steal our candy!

Why candy? Why do thousands of people go out and buy bags and bags of candy to distribute to all of the sweat tooth children in the neighborhood?

In fact, Americans will spend an estimated $2 billion on candy during the Halloween season this year. Holy cow! Those candy makers are getting big paychecks!

After researching this puzzling question, we have found some very interesting facts. 

This seemingly timeless custom of trick-or-treating is actually a quite recent American invention. The ritual of costumes, doorbell-ringing, and the expectation of booty appeared for the first time in different locations throughout the country in the late 1930s and early 1940s. It wasn't until the late 1940s that trick-or-treating became widespread on a national scale. And even then, candy wasn't the obvious treat. It wasn't until the 1970s that candy came to be seen as the only legitimate treat. And while the candy industry reaped the benefits, the immediate impetus was not brilliant marketing so much as rising fears that unwrapped or homemade Halloween treats posed risks of tampering and poisoning. Commercial wrapped candy was the only safe choice.

All of which raises the question: What was the candy industry up to during all those years before we had the license and opportunity to indulge in enormous quantities of Halloween candy? It turns out that in 1916, candy promoters did come up with an idea to launch the fall candy season and boost sales and consumption, but it wasn't Halloween. It was a new holiday invention, uniquely American in its entrepreneurial spirit: Candy Day.

The art of Photography

Thursday, September 24, 2015 11:29:17 AM America/Denver

the art or practice of taking and processing photographs.


 The history of photography has roots in remote antiquity with the discovery of the principle of the camera obscura and the observation that some substances are visibly altered by exposure to light. As far as is known, nobody thought of bringing these two phenomena together to capture camera images in permanent form until around 1800, when Thomas Wedgwood made the first reliably documented although unsuccessful attempt. In the mid-1820s, Nicéphore Niépce succeeded, but several days of exposure in the camera were required and the earliest results were very crude. Niépce's associate Louis Daguerre went on to develop the daguerreotype process, the first publicly announced photographic process, which required only minutes of exposure in the camera and produced clear, finely detailed results. It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.


Here is that photo!

Amazing right?!

So now you know!
