FMM Quickie

Just a couple of things before I leave you to go buy a chocolate bunny for Easter Sunday...priorities, right?  I remembered to take pictures of the Fossil watch tin display yesterday when I was at the gift shop, although it looks better in person, I think - it's hard to get a decent shot with all of the glass and lights, but here you go - you can see the tins in the back, behind the jewelry and watches:
Top shelf - I love the turquoise dangle earrings and coordinating necklace in here. 
 
Second shelf - I took the picture right when I got to the gift shop, then realized some jewelry had sold and moved things a little to reset the display, but my phone was put away by then.
Third shelf - we've sold a lot of watches recently - usually we have more colorful ones, but they were pretty popular.

There's a bottom shelf, but that has men's watches and hand-painted eggs on display - nothing too exciting there, although you can get a peek of the eggs in the last picture if you look through the shelf.  It remains to be seen if any of the other volunteers will actually let the customer choose a tin from the display when they sell a watch - that is the point of this, after all; plus, I have a lot more neatly stacked in the bin below this case.  We probably have triple the amount of tins versus the watches on hand, which is wild, because the few times that I've bought a Fossil watch over the years, I made sure to come home with the cute tin that came with it!

********************

With all the effort I've been putting into running more lately, I wanted to treat myself - I used to do this fairly often when I was training for my first few half marathons and had to run my long distances by myself - I'd come up with a bribe when the miles got tough.  Sometimes it was a new yoga mat, sometimes it was frozen yogurt - but it was always a little reward for literally going the extra mile(s).  Instead of doing a food treat, I decided to do a body treat, in the form of sugar scrubs from blogger Lori's shop, Savonology!  I had such a hard time choosing which scent to buy that I ended up picking two - Rosemary Lemon and Cafe Latte:
She threw in a bar of Rosemary Lemon soap as an extra goodie, so I'm all set!

I love these - they make my skin so soft, plus it forces me to massage my tired legs, which feels pretty good after all the miles.

********************

Short run for me tomorrow - I'm pretty sure I'll only run 5 miles.  Maybe 8, but probably 5.  Diane has 10 on tap - I know I'm not going to attempt that again.  Have a great weekend, and Happy Easter!

    1. I know, right?? Although I will say some customers buy the watch and wear it out of the store...but I'd still get the tin.

  2. OMG it's perfect timing that you posted about these sugar scrubs. After coming back from the Hershey spa I've been on the hunt for chocolate sugar scrubs. I didn't think they'd e hard to find but I was wrong. I'll have to check out that shop!

    1. I really like her scrubs - not too gritty, and not sloppy at all, plus they smell so good!

  3. I recently had a luxurious pedicure at the salon where I get my hair colored. She used a lavender sugar scrub and it was to die for!

    1. Lori has a lavender scrub and that was the other scent I was torn about ordering - next time for sure!

  4. Very nice displays!--I like the tins almost better than the watches! I had to go check out Lori's website--very nice setup. And if you can believe, I've never used a sugar scrub. When I checked them out, I saw they use apricot, and I have used an apricot scrub. Happy Easter to you too. I've had my chocolate bunny for a couple of weeks---he's just sitting there mocking me as I walk by. He just doesn't know what's in store for him :)

    1. The tins are really fun - all kinds of retro and artsy ones.

      LOL on your chocolate bunny...your day is coming! ;)

    1. Yeah, I've had such a hard time with 10 that I think I need a good strong 5 miler for a change.

  6. Thanks for the plug Shelley! I'm glad you like the scrubs. I have been all over the coffee scrub lately (or it's all over me LOL).

    I love those tins that come with the watches! I used to have a Fossil watch ages and ages ago circa the 1990s. It was sort of an abalone or mother of pearl background with the gears showing. Very cool.

  7. "Only" 5! Crazy what you are calling "only" now, right?!

    What an AWESOME treat!

    I was walking past a neat display in the city and almost took a photo to send you! And was also thinking "I hope she shows us the Fossil displays!" They look great! I hope the people do get to pick out a tin!

  8. Love the displays, makes me want to go out and buy stuff!

    And so smart to use "bribes," because screw the whole extrinsic/intrinsic reward distinction: humans need both! We all know exercise is good for us but sometimes it's tough, and a few well-timed treats can really make a difference. --Crabby @ Cranky Fitness (too lame to change login)

  10. The displays look great, great job!

    I love Lori's products, I was lucky to receive some soap from her a while ago and loved them.
