Christmas in July, Literally

Christmas in July!  Give an ornament your personal touch.Every holiday season, we dedicate a tree inside our shop to display wooden, all-occasion ornaments that are lovingly hand-cut and hand-painted by the employees at J.J. Cardinal's. Our local FISH* organization receives all proceeds from the sales of these ornaments.

After many people have asked where they could get the blank wood forms so they could paint some themselves we had an "ah-ha" moment!   Starting in July, every Tuesday this summer and during regular store hours, we will have a table set up where people can select and then paint their own ornament for just $2.00. We will have a variety of paints, brushes and daubers, ideas on how to decorate, glitter, stickers, stencils, etc., to help you customize your very own ornament and of course all proceeds will help FISH. Stop in on any Tuesday and have some neighborly fun painting an ornament for yourself or to place on our "Giving Tree".   You will have fun and help contribute to a good cause.

* FISH Inc. of Grand Blanc provides household and school supplies to those who need them in our area. To learn more about FISH call their hotline, 810-695-1880.
