It's Small Business Saturday and we are celebrating big here at In the Heart of my Home. I'm shining the spotlight on a new sponsor almost every waking hour today and offering you a chance to win with every post. I want you to get to know my kind sponsors and I think you'll be glad for the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping in these small shops. The giveaways will remain open until Tuesday at noon and then all the winners will be announced in the original posts.
I'm pleased to introduce you to Michelle of Liturgical Times Veil Shop . let's get to know her a little better.
Is yours a family business?
Ours is most definitely a family business. Both my husband and I grew up in families that were engaged in small business. Cottage industry is in our blood, I suppose, and our daughter is being raised with the same experience. We are a small family (by God's will), and all three of us are actively involved in the daily tasks of running our little shop.
What's the product you are most excited about in your shop right now?We are still very excited about the Eternity Veil. As the original creators of the infinity style chapel veil, we are still finding many fun and creative new design twists to incorporate into the line. We find that this veil is the perfect facilitator for women who really want to wear a veil at Mass, but are a little afraid to take the plunge. Our Eternity Veil can be worn as a scarf when entering the worship space, and then discreetly slipped over the head when the wearer wishes to cover her head, making the process simple and comfortable.What's your favorite Advent tradition?
My absolute favorite Advent tradition has to be the Advent wreath. It is the highlight of so many childhood Advent memories for me and of so many memories of our own family life. Candlelight holds such mystical spiritual significance and yet fire is such a mundane and earthly thing. We command it every day with the turn of a dial in our kitchens. Still, a flame atop a wick carries the prayers of generations heavenward. I find it captivating.Any plans for your shop for the new year that you'd like to share?A line of vintage hat-style veils is forthcoming. We are enthralled with the tradition of church hats and plan to incorporate the beauty of the chapel veil with a touch of yesteryear's pillbox hat. We are quite excited to begin creating. Stay tuned!Please visit Liturgical Times Veil Shop and browse a bit. Come back and tell us which veil catches your fancy and you'll be entered to win the Eternity Veil in your choice of one of three colors:ororThe winner is Delores who wrote,
I really like the tichel -- I had never heard of that. I think because I like to wear my hair up and that is a great way to do that, plus have a head covering.
Delores, please contact me at intheheartofmyhome AT gmail DOT com with your snail mail address.
