On the eve of St. Nicholas Day 2018…

Tomorrow is St. Nicholas Day! Don’t forget to have your children leave their shoes out by the door so St. Nick can fill them with presents and goodies tonight!

If I could go back in time, we would solely do Santa gifts on December 6 and save the 25th for family gifts and celebrating Christ’s birth. But, my daughters absolutely won’t consider it now, as they are delighted about playing “the Santa game” on the 24th with their baby brother.

If you’re looking to introduce St. Nick into your family traditions, here are some past posts on books and resources I recommend:

We also purchased the cute St. Nicholas felt doll and Ostheimer figure from Bella Luna Toys, here!

 

Hope you have a wonderful Advent season!

Giveaway: win 2 passes to the 18th Century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun October 20 – 21

One of our favorite events we attend together as a family each year is the 18th Century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun in Vonore. This year the Trade Faire will be October 20 & 21, which should make for perfect weather for this fun event! The hours for the faire will remain the same as past years, with the gates opening to the public at 10:00 a.m. for both days, and the grounds remaining open until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Make sure you bring cash to the Trade Faire, as there are lots of booths with great merchandise! This is where I tend to get Christmas presents for my husband.

There are also lots of different performers and demonstrations, including many people in period costume. We especially enjoy catching the Amazing Budabi Brothers‘ show every year. The Trade Faire is a great event for kids and adults alike!

Admission costs for the event are as follows:

18th century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun
$10 – Adults (13 and up)
Children 12 and under admitted free

For more info on the 18th Century Trade Faire, you can visit the Fort Loudoun Facebook page here.

The generous folks at Fort Loudoun have a set of two free tickets to the Trade Faire to give away to one of you! That giveaway is taking place on the Thrifty Christy Facebook page here. Make sure you RSVP to the Facebook event here!

I am excited to be able to give away passes to the Kidz Consignment Sale pre-sale to two Thrifty Christy readers! There’s nothing like shopping early!

The sale is Friday, September 7, and Saturday, September 8, but these tickets will get you in beforehand to shop with consignors on the evening of Thursday, September 6.

Chatbooks deal: get $10 credit to spend on gorgeous Rifle Paper Co photo books

A stylish friend shared this gorgeous deal with me (thanks, Meredith!): Rifle Paper Co. now has a line of covers on Chatbooks. I just ordered and will share when my first one arrives! Chatbooks automatically uploads photos from your phone, makes a quick photo book, then mails it to you. This is BRILLIANT for someone like me who never backs things up and sometimes smashes (or drowns) my phone!
If you’re interested, here’s a ref link to get $10 to spend for your first book (brought my total to $7).

I was hoping there would be a book coupon code for Prime Day, and here it is: get $5 off a $20 book purchase with code PRIMEBOOKS18. There are a few requirements; for example, books must be sold directly by Amazon (not just fulfilled by Amazon.)

I had my purchases in my cart and was ready to go! Here’s a list of great book deals that you can use the code on if you’re not sure what to purchase. Happy Prime Day!
