no. 13 trader who?


i don't want to make you who live in land locked states too jealous, but i have to say a very good thing is trader joe's. it's just the cutest little grocery store! they have lots of great products that other stores do not, the atmosphere is just fun, and the service is amazing. i had to find 25 miniature rose bushes for our little young women's program at church tonight and trader joe's came through smashingly. (now if only i could get to the other computer then i could upload pictures) they had the flowers all ready and packaged and everything. their service and style made the wholesale flower places i usually go to look pretty poor. and trader joe's prices aren't bad either. (at least not compared to other stores in this area) also, about the fun atmosphere in trader joe's, well they always have neat and fun signage (real word), but did you know they hire local artists at each store to make the signs? they also donate money to local food banks regularly in the same neighborhoods they are in. i could go on, but nobody is paying me royalties for this so let's just say i think trader joe's is a good thing.

I also love Trader Joes! There's one just a couple blocks from my house and I shop there a lot. Also, I did not know they hire local artists to make the signs... that is so cool!
