Although no one is quite sure how the marketing idea came about, almost everyone has heard of "Christmas In July" sales and celebrations. The THRIFTY KITTY, second hand store of Westfield Stray Cat Rescue, has decided to join the festivities and celebrate "CHRISTMAS IN JULY!" on Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th at 48 Elm St. and McClurg. Because of the vast amount of Christmas decorations which will be available, you'll probably need two days to browse and buy! (Hours will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.) And, as a special Christmas gift, some kitty-cats will be present...watching you (and hopefully willing you) to take one of them home along with items galore: garland, tree lights and balls; wreathes, wrapping paper and bows; Santa Clauses and sleighs; reindeer and elves; Snowmen and icicles; wise-men and a creche. Just about anything and everything that adds to the Christmas Spirit!
And, as if shopping for Christmas in July weren't enough, there will be the opportunity to take a chance on a quilt, called, "Catmania!" (It was lovingly handmade from 'cat themed' material and is sized for a single bed.) The tickets are 3/$5.00. The drawing is Saturday, Aug. 31st. You need not be present to win!
So, come one and come all to the Westfield Stray Cat Rescue/Thrifty Kitty Second Hand Store "CHRISTMAS IN JULY!" fund- raiser on the 26th and 27th. You'll have a "Joy to the World!" good time while supporting a worthy 'paws'!
