Many of you may recall that back in November and December we received our annual shipment of holiday decorations. In particular, you may recall the enormous snowmen and snowflakes we received from American Christmas, Inc. Well it turns out American Christmas still has a lot of decorations stowed away in their Bronx warehouse, and they are looking to clean it out. Please read the message below from Production Director, Kim Meyerer:
