Truckee Shoppers Win! Lorna Tirman is grateful for Gratitudes
I love downtown Truckee. I have decided to shop local…again. My family is never disappointed with the gifts I get. So I decided to go in to Gratitudes to see what they have this year. Sunday afternoon, the owner, Julie is there to help me. She is friendly and kind. Her shop is decorated and Christmas music is playing in the background.
I walk around the store once, but there is so much to see, I have to circle several more times to really see everything. She has the most unique decorations and table ware. I bought some adorable cardinal salt and pepper shakers for my mom, and two stuffed moose, one a girl and one a boy for my sister. She loves stuff like this!
I cannot wait to share all I have found from Gratitudes with my whole family when they open up their stockings on Christmas day. I proceeded to look around more and found candles and a few other things.
Julie then offered the Truckee passport to me. I had not heard of this, so she explained it to me. I was to receive 25 percent off my purchases today at Gratitudes and then I could get other deals at many of the other Truckee stores. If I shop in all four places in town, Downtown, Brickelltown, Jibboom Street and West River, and if I got my passport stamped in all four places, I could then take my passport to the Chamber of Commerce and be entered in a drawing to win $$$$.
How fun! What a great idea. Now I just have to find a bit more time to shop downtown. I plan to go to at least one store in each area, but the truth is, I would have anyway.
Now I have more of a reason to shop local. The discounts from the Truckee Passport have already saved me money and I look forward to seeing what else I can find.
Thank you Truckee Downtown Merchants. You are the best.
