19 Feb Fresh Starts
The New Year is traditionally is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. In 1878 a fellow named John Wanamaker owned a department store in Philadelphia. John was clever with advertising for his store and decided to hold a special sale in January. At the time both sheets and towels came in any color you wanted as long as you wanted white. And this new sale time became known as the “White Sale”. For over 140 years department stores have held White Sales, in the 1950’s these sales became more colorful as linens became available in a range of colors. More recently other items such as kitchen appliances and home decorative items have been added to the selection. Now is a good time of year to freshen up your bed and bath with new sheets, towels, blankets, pillows and more.
