Reblogged from Sheridan Stationary:

November! I can’t believe how this year has flown by. It’s that time of year when we start thinking of our Christmas gift list. Books make wonderful and personal gifts. There are many new titles out by your favorite authors, and ones from some very promising new writers. Stop in the store and check out what’s on our shelves. In addition to books, we also carry 2017 calendars, reading lights, boxes of notecards, and other fun gift ideas. Our staff is always happy to assist you in finding just the right thing for those on your gift list. We also offer free giftwrapping, and a friendly smile. Let us help you make your shopping easier.
We will be closed on Thursday, November 24th for Thanksgiving.
We are thankful for you, our customers, who support us by shopping local. May you have a wonderful Holiday with your families.
We hope to see you on Friday for the Christmas Stroll.
Don’t miss out on the 20th annual Christmas Stroll. It’s a great event for the whole family and a fun way to see what all the shops offer for sale in Historic Downtown Sheridan. The event is Friday, November 25, 4:00-8:00 pm. The search for winning button numbers, at participating businesses all over Sheridan County, continues all the way until Christmas Eve.
Once again, the “Get Caught Shopping” campaign will be offered each Saturday until Christmas. It’s a great reason to shop locally. This year there will be Get Caught locations around the whole county, and $4,000 in Chamber Bucks will be given away.
 Just wear your Stroll button while you shop and you could be a winner.
