With the school year coming to a close the inevitable shopping trip for prom dresses looms ahead. Never fear... Jane is here. Jane Grahek of Furbelows, just back from a buying trip to LA has so many cute dresses and the really nice thing about them is that they are perfect for teens who live in this area... not too shiny... no taffeta nightmares and definitely something that can be worn again and again throughout the summer. Most dresses are in the $70 - $90 range.
We’ve made some additions to our website. With the opening of the new Galaxy Cinema Collingwood we have added a link to the movie listings in Collingwood so with just two ity bity clicks you can find out what’s playing tonight in your neighbourhood and purchase advance tickets to hop the line. How cool is that? I did this just the other night and it was a very quick and convenient process to use. While the kids were eating dinner... I was buying their movie tickets. Check out our listings under Theatre or Fun Stuff.
