The Amazing Forgotten Gift

A Smart Shopper’s Secret Tip from “Anonymous.”

Thank you “Anonymous” from the Shopping Gurus at Virginia Born and Bred.  We love your smart shopper tip!

VBB In Store 017It’s surprising how many ideal places there are in a home to hang something that says, “Welcome!”  I discovered Welcome Slates make amazing gifts, maybe because they are overlooked as charming home decor.  People used to think one plaque was enough.

The truth is there are always a variety of perfect spots to instantly make guests feel wanted. There’s the obvious entry way, but what about the back door, the door from the garage, the kitchen, a patio wall, even the guest room door?

And there are as many varieties of Welcome Slates as there are doors and walls to hold them.

Besides all that, it is no longer un-fashionable to have more than one Welcome Plaque adorning your home.

Some folks prefer elegant personalized versions for glamour and sophistication.

Or you can find welcome slates to suit the seasons or to announce there may be critters afoot.  I received one for my birthday that featured two happy Golden Retrievers because I had two Goldens! Why not switch things around from season to season? Who says you have to have just one all-purpose welcome slate anyway?

I absolutely love my two most recent finds.  I hang the one that says, “Welcome” featuring a happy horse on the enter side of the guestroom door, and on the exit side of the same door I hang the one that says “Come Back Soon” featuring the business ends of  three horses.   How cute is that? Horse Slate

That’s my secret shopping tip of course.  Find a Welcome Slate to make your visitors feel happy.  It will also make an amazing gift. horse rears slate
