First Day of School & more!

Back-to-School Tompkins County: Wednesday, September 9, 2009

The first day of school often brings up some reflection on milestones. The first year to ride their bike to school, the last year to share a hallway with a sibling until High School, the first upstairs classroom, and so on. As you reflect on your family’s milestones, get a snapshot of your milestone kid (wearing their  favorite school outfit from the Goose!)  and email it to info@mamagooseithaca.com. We’d love to post it on our Facebook photo album. And, now you can follow @MamaGooseIthaca on Twitter, so tweet us your milestones!

We just started following @PBS after researching their great back-to-school pages here.

The First Annual Rhiner Festival is coming right up, Saturday, September 19, 2009. We are very excited to participate and will have a table set up at the event. Larkin (our very well-informed Store Manager) will be at the table all afternoon answering cloth diapering questions & demonstrating baby-wearing. We’ll have a sampling of other new items we carry, such as recycled fabric dolls and twig crayons. In addition to our table, we’re going to be hosting a pirate craft for the kids at 3PM (On the Greenspace behind Island Fitness) . If that’s not enough excitement for you, the store will be open our regular Saturday hours (9a-6p).

And, finally, the Fourth Annual Winter Coat Sale is Saturday, September 26, 2009. We share this big day with The State Theatre as they host Laurie Berkner and her band! There will be time before and after the show for coat (and Halloween) shopping, so make your plans today. We also invite you to enter our in-store drawing before September 13th to win four Laurie Berkner tickets. The odds are quite good. As of today, the fishbowl is not that full!
