Green is where the Heart Is For November 20, 2013

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.
~Ryunosuke Satoro.”

By Jeanne McBane and
Mo Linquist

Living green considers the ecosystem of our existence.  Our bionetwork may be comprised of more than flora and fauna.  As a community we are connected to each other intimately. 
The choices we make will support or hinder each other’s ability to thrive.  Jeanne McBane of Jeanne’s Jewels is the mastermind of The Pleasure Island Shopping Spree, a fun and unique day for 12 businesses on Pleasure Island to offer incentives for local shopping on Saturday, November 23rd followed by a raffle party on Sunday, November 24th.  
Majik Beanz Coffee Shop, Artful Living Group, Island Wellness Market, The Checkered Church, Island Chic Consignment Boutique, Primrose Cottage, Nautilus Art & Frame, Island Roast Coffee, Brew Thru, Footprints, Big Apple Bakery, and Jeanne’s Jewel’s and Fashions have joined together and are participating in the Third Annual Pleasure Island Shopping Spree.
There will be a Pleasure Island Shopping Spree sign by each participating store. Each store is offering a gift basket valued at $75 or more to customers for raffle. Shop at each participating store on Saturday, November 23rd  from 10AM-6PM and earn a raffle ticket for each $10’s worth of purchase.
On Sunday, November 24th from 4PM -7PM at Casa Matta join the Raffle Party fun by bringing your receipts from the Shopping Spree, receive your earned raffle tickets while enjoying a free appetizer, and music with DJ, Mike Worley.
Besides the gift baskets from the participating stores other businesses have offered raffle prizes for the event, they are: Ace Hardware, Sunglasses, hat, and fishing tee, value $75, Adelina, gift certificate Plaza Hair Design, Kay, owner of Saks Hair Salon $50 gift certificate, Canvas
Giclee Printing a Beautiful Carolina Beach Scene on Canvas $95 value,  A Get away basket which includes one night stay from the Marriott with breakfast buffet for two, Nikki’s Sushi $40 gift certificate,  Havana’s $40 gift certificate, Bottle of Champaign from Jeanne’s Jewels and Fashions, two hand painted wine glasses from Nautilus Art & Frame.
This will be a fun weekend to kick off the Holiday Season. Come and learn the specialty of each business and what they have to offer not only during the Holiday Season, but all year round. Each business will have that unique
special gift, for that unique special occasion, family member or friend.  What a special time for business owners and their representatives to take time out and enjoy some fun with customers.
This weekend there is no need to go OTB (over the bridge.)  Keep it local and have fun at the same time.  These vendors and the people these vendors support in our ocean of connections, thank you.  xo mo
