Join Jeanie for a celebrate life crop with Heather (who has graciously offered her classroom) at her store--High Strung Beads 316 Central Ave. from 6-10pm =0) one box NEW smoke and water free items mainly Teresa Collins with a few misc items.

Thank you so much for the concern, calls and offers to help. We are still waiting for inspectors and insurance adjustors. As it stands now what we know the store will be closed for at least 1 month to move to a new location and 3-4 months at our current location. We need to wait for insurance information before final decisions are made. Please watch here for info on a web site to help serve our scrapbooking needs.

The Public Drug it affected MOMS

BARB M., THANKS SO MUCH FOR CONTACTING OUR FACEBOOK FRIENDS! :) YOU ARE AWESOME! :) (The message below is from Barb's Facebook message and I don't know a better way to say it.)

To all of Jeanie's friends... She's fine. For those who haven't heard, there has been a fire in the Public Drug building which is next door to Mountains of Memories. I spoke with Jeanie a little while ago and she's fine. Dave got in to town yesterday afternoon and is with her. Her daughter and family left for home last night so they weren't around when the fire started around midnight last night. As of a couple of hours ago the store had not sustained any fire damage but there is definitely smoke damage. Jeanie told me that she won't be able to get back into the store to assess any damages until tomorrow (Monday) afternoon or later. Jeanie has been trying to call people, but she doesn't have her phone - it's in the store somewhere - so she has only been able to reach the people who are listed in the phone book or whose numbers she remembers. If you need to get a hold of Jeanie, please send me a Facebook email with your name and phone number and I will pass it on to Jeanie.

We will be letting everyone know as we know what is going on. We thank all of our friends and customers for your support during all this! :) You can contact me, Kathy also if you don't have a Facebook account and I will get messages and numbers/emails to Jeanie! :) My email is:
