Our Lady of Fatima Basilica, New Retailers and Update on Dusty
We had an excellent trip visiting the Our Lady of Fatima Basilica in Portugal, and are back to reality, back to work. We will be reaching out to many of you very soon - we were pleasantly surprised with the extremely high number of requests we got for Rosaries from Fatima. We got our best response, ever, nearly quadruple the amount we had from the Medjugorje trip and equal to the numbers from our visit to the Vatican for Saint John Paul II's Canonization. So, we are a little backed up, but your rosary will be in the mail in no time. Be warned though, you should brush up on your Portuguese, for whatever crazy reason, many of the prayer cards that we got for you in Portugal are covered with Portuguese writing! We got several different versions of rosaries and prayer cards; you will have to wait a few more days to see what you will be getting! Please send us more stories about gifting the Rosaries. Your words are truly uplifting!
We would like to extend a warm SaintsforSinners "Welcome" to our two newest retail stores, both located in Metairie, Louisiana, not too far from our home base in New Orleans. A special thank you and welcome to Hair Graphics located at 117 Focis St, in Old Metairie. Drop in and say hi to Patricia, and see our medals and get a new hairstyle. And a special thank you and welcome to Design a Latte Boutique located at 3363 Severn Ave #9, where you should go see Lauren, and peruse the store for all your monogramming needs. And as soon as we finish this newsletter we will be traveling to LD Linens and Décor, one of our retailers who will be receiving a fresh supply of our hand-painted saint medals today. They have two convenient locations, one Uptown New Orleans at 323 Magazine St, and with one in Baton Rouge at 4247 Perkins Rd.
And finally on behalf of our beloved mascot/"pound pup" Dusty, we would like to extend a warm and sincere thank you! Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers ~ Dusty has made a remarkable recovery and is doing great! Since she's been in such a good mood lately, thanks to her Carrolton Veterinary Doctors Banta and Algero, her doggy Prozac, and arthritis medicine. So, she has decided that an appropriate way to say thank you to y'all is to offer a free animal lover medal to anyone who buys an animal lover medal, yes even including St. Gertrude the patron saint of Cat Lovers! This offer is good through the month of August; anyone who purchases a St. Francis, St. Rocco, Kevin of Glendalough, or St. Gertrude medal will get another surprise medal free!
Please remember to share this newsletter on your social channels, forward it to your family and friends, or even print out multiple copies to give your neighbors. Thanks, everyone. We hope you like the Our Lady of Fatima Rosary Packages, "Coming Soon" to a mailbox near you!
