Gracious Gifts

During the holiday season I always find occasion to be amazed by the generosity of others. There are so many people that shine in the service of others, it inspires me to want to give more service to others too.

The tradition of Santa Claus stems from the Saint Nicholas who was a Christian Bishop in the third century who dedicated his life to helping and serving those in need in keeping with his Christian beliefs and upbringing. For many of us Santa and Christ's birthday are holiday traditions, so in honor of Christmas and serving others we are giving away two $20 gift certificates. We hope that this will inspire you to help someone this season, whether it be in your own family, or a friend in need. Leave a comment to enter, and two winners (one gift certificate each) will be drawn on Monday!

Another one bites the dust

So now that Halloween is upon us, my mind is already shifting gears, checking off another holiday, and looking forward to the next things coming down the turnpike like winter and the next holidays. I was up in Park City earlier this week, and it snowed the whole day, it wasn't even their first snow day this year, the only thing I could think was how sorry I felt for them having their winter start so early! You might have guessed I am not the biggest fan of the cold. As for us we are all geared for when our winter here hits, coats (check), gloves and hat (check, check), boots (check)! Now we just need to make room for them in the closet by getting the Halloween costumes in all their bulky glory cleared out!

Well if you're getting ready for the impending cold too I know I have mentioned it before, but we are bursting at the seams (literally) with some really good stuff for winter! We are putting out as much as we can fit (four racks of coats, four baskets or bins of hats and gloves that are sooo cute, and sections dedicated to snow boots, pants and bibs! So stop by the store to check, check, check items off your winter list! Oh, and if you are needing to unload the Halloween costumes that the kids wore once or twice, don't store 'em! We take them even the day after Halloween, so you can get some store credit for the stuff coming down the turnpike at your house!

This week's giveaway is for a large Cheerful Giver Candle over at Sweet Lizzie's! If this won't warm your house with the delicious scent, then I don't know much else that would! These are awesome candles that have around 150 hours of burn time(for the large size), and even taking off the lid will give the room a great smell! There are several scents to choose from from fruity to floral to those baking scents that smell like you just baked sugar cookies! We have carried these at Sweet Pea in the past, these are every bit as good as the other candles on the market right now if not better!!! Post a comment to enter to win and the winner will be drawn on Tuesday this time since this post has come late this evening!

P.S. Check out the Sweet Lizzie's Blog this week, there are scrumptious new arrivals in furniture and sweets!

Giveaway winner from 10/22 post/New arrival

Thanks for all your great comments this past weekend! We are excited to have toys back again, and we will surely be having some re-arranging going on to fit all the new arrivals! The winner for the Melissa and Doug Giveaway is #11 Sweetpea08 (great name eh?:)) Congrats, you may pick up your prize at the store! Thanks to all of you for being great customers!

Speaking of toys, we have an awesome new arrival at the store right now, it's a Fur real Smores pony! These normally retail for between $269.00 to $300.00. We have it for less than half the price! These are so fun and do some amazing things! The kids can sit on the pony and ride, feed him a snack and watch as his gaze follows them around the room! Come down to the store and check it out, with Christmas right around the corner this would make a great gift idea!

Toys Are Back!!

As many of you may know, we have had a hold on buying gently used toys for about a year now so as to learn about the new lead laws that have been passed. Now that we have educated ourselves we are excited to announce we will now be opening our doors again to your gently used toys!

If your house is anything like ours, we have plenty of good toys that are in great shape, the kids have grown out of them and they need to find a new home! I am always needing to clean out the closets and the toy chests to keep the house from bursting! We love to see puzzles, games, toys with batteries, toys with lots of parts that are bagged together (and no missing parts and pieces of course), all clean and in good condition! Our customers have asked if there are any toys that we don't accept, in the past we have not done as well with stuffed animals such as teddy bears and the like, so these would be items to take into consideration when putting together your toy drop-off.

If you don't have toys to bring into us but are looking to buy, Sweet Pea is a great place to find toys that won't break the bank! We are sure to have a variety of the gently used as well as some new items! We just sold an awesome fire truck pedal car that had a great vintage look, but have more great items like a Lightning McQueen table and chairs, an art desk and large easel to name a few!

This week's giveaway is for a new Melissa and Doug toy of your choice up to a $12.99 value. Post a comment and refer a friend to the blog to enter to win! As always we will draw the winner on Monday!
Don't forget our other blog! There are notifications of sweet things every week!

Especially when you got to the down town trick-or-treat! (by the way Halloween is on a SUNDAY this year, so the down town trick-or-treat is on Saturday night!) For those of you that haven't been it is a great way to see the fun stores and established businesses that are in down town Tooele. Plus there is good candy from Sweet Pea and our new sister store Sweet Lizzie's ;)The trick-or-treat usually runs for about three hours and the kids can go around and trick-or-treat at the local businesses, WALLAH, they get loads of candy and you keep your sanity!

Still need a costume? We get different ones in every day! We still have lots to choose from, so if you haven't chosen the disguise for Halloween night get on over to Sweet Pea and see what tempts your creative genius! OR if you just want some cute Halloween T's, leggings, or PJ's for the little ones, we have plenty of those too! Trust me, your wallet will thank you!

Okay, I'll get to the give away! This week's giveaway will be two separate drawings.

Arrrgh, the new arrivals that I was going to post sold...

So I went and took pics and sure enough, all three things I was going to highlight are sold. At least I can still post the contest for the weekend!

Also, I thought I'd take a minute and announce our big sale Monday...It's huge! (we've only offered this deal one other time in six years). Everything in the store is buy one, get one half off including furniture, shoes, jeans (just in time for back to school), new Melissa and Doug toys (stock up the birthday present cupboard) and more. The only exclusion is bows since they aren't store owned. Great deals for the rest of summer and back to school. Pass the word along to a friend!

P.S. after a couple months of incredible busy-ness with opening the new store and enjoying the baby, we have gotten back on track on our birthday club. May, June's and July's should be in your mailbox today or by Tuesday. If your kids aren't registered for the club, it is a super fun thing, ask for details at the store. The best part about this is that I don't have to hang my head in guilty shame as I walk through Wal-Mart (aaaaah, the joys of a small town :).

Our contest for the week is for a $20 shopping spree to the Pea. Use it now or save it for more yummy new arrivals that are coming in everyday...just leave a comment about what you are doing to celebrate our Independence Day!!!

Winners 6/24 and a Recall Heads Up

Number 14 Liz and Number 19 Jessica and Justin are our winners (whoever picks up first can choose which gift certificate they want)! Congrats and I'll post more new arrivals and a new giveaway tomorrow.

Super important P.S. If you've got a baby in a crib (like us at our house), you may want to check website. There was a HUGE recall of millions of cribs today (6/24). Basically most dropside cribs now need to be retrofitted to have a non-dropside. All of the manufacturers are offering free repair kits.

This is a TON of cribs. All five that we had in the store have been pulled and are awaiting these kits off the sales floor. Your little ones safety is important to us! While you are at the Consumer protection website you can check out other recalls including high chairs, pack n plays, toys and more.

You poor neglected blog followers, you need a reward!

I've been working at the store this week to cover girl's camp and Father's Day camping and it has been busy, busy busy with lots of delicious and delightful new inventory.

In order to make up for my neglect of this poor blog, we are doing two giveaways...

The first is a $10 gift certificate to Sweet Pea and the second is a $10 gift certificate to Sweet Lizzie's (can you tell it is late and I've gone through 32 drop offs today and my creativity is lacking?)

Among our new arrivals this week are a darling pink exersaucer that converts to a walker (see pic above)...priced at $39.99 our price (new was $83 at Target). We also got in a cherry red Radio Flyer retro scooter, our price $24.99, new was $94. Oodles and scoodles of new, summery clothes.

P.S. Start getting excited for what we have stored and ready to go for our Back to School inventory. I know I say it every year, but the stuff for the seasonal transition is AMAZING!

Happy weekend! I'm down in St. George enjoying a BEAUTIFUL weekend off..but not to worry, I'm still posting our weekend Freebie...this week's prize is a two part one.

The first part of the prize is a $10 gift certificate to Sweet Pea and then the second is a 1/4 lb. of any candy you wish at Sweet Lizzie's. Shopping and sweets, a perfect combination. My favorite part of this prize is that you get to bring a friend with you who gets the same prize (can you tell I've been watching way too much America's Next Top Model...? I love that darn show).

Just leave a comment to enter, and I'll pick a winner on Monday.

Jen #3 is our winner this week courtesy of Hope you all had an amazing Mother's Day.

P.S. Tons of new fun furniture in this week. Got in a gorgeous antique red spindle bed. Perfect for a boys cowboy or robot or sock monkey or any other room needing a red accent. It came in with a matching pint size antique-retro desk (both look very Pottery Barn-ish). We also got in a mini-crib in a natural wood tone and oodles of other yummy stuff.

I love reading your comments, by the way! You are all so fun/kind/entertaining...

Freebie Weekend 5/7

Hooray! It seems like Spring might finally stick this time...maybe (crossing my fingers and knocking on wood). It's been a busy week. We've been cleaning racks, clearancing to make room and organizing. Yesterday one lucky shopper found 72 freshly marked down 99 cent items. We helped her out to her car, got out our Sharpies and added more to the rack :) Lots of amazing bargains on there right now!

Today's giveaway is a candy basket from Sweet Lizzie's in honor of Mother's Day (a $20 value). Hope you all have a super delightful day and get spoiled :)

The average woman will spend more than EIGHT YEARS of her life shopping...

This info comes from and is sooooo interesting,

"Buying household essentials and keeping the family fed and clothed means the typical female shops for a staggering 25,184 hours and 53 mins over a period of 63 years. The research also found women will make 301 individual shopping trips - lasting a total of 399 hours and 46 minutes - per year. A spokesman for OnePoll said: ''Many men seem to think women only shop when they are buying clothes for themselves. ''But they quite often shop for the entire family and that can be incredibly hard work.'' Even the food shop can take over an hour to complete and with 84 food shops a year, women will spend 94 hours and 55 minutes browsing the supermarket. Women also dedicate 90 shopping trips a year to keeping up appearances - shopping for clothes 30 times, shoes 15 times, accessories 18 times and toiletries 27 times."

Holy exhausting ladies!!! Get your hubbies to give you a big hug and kiss for saving them so much money and keeping them fed.

This weekends giveaway is for a Melissa and Doug floor puzzle (your choice). We just got in a HUGE shipment of M & D including their new brownie sets (sooooo cute), cupcake sets, sugar cookies and more play food. Come on in and check it out. Just leave a comment to enter.

The winner is #3, Tiffany. Congrats! You can come pick up your prize at the store.

Sorry, I am so spacey this week. Next time somebody comment to me and remind me so I'm not so flaky. This week we are upgrading the lighting at the store (it's been bugging me for only 5 and a half years). Come in and check it out.

New arrivals this week are: a huge, gorgeous lot of size Small and 4 junior clothing in super fun and trendy styles, a huge lot (over 40 pieces) of girls 7/8 clothes in bright spring colors, a darling wrought iron, sleigh style full size bed and a Pottery Barn shelf. And that's just an itty, bitty sample of what's come in. Spring cleaning is definitely in full force in Tooele. Hooray for our inventory and your shopping choices!!!

Weekend Freebie 4/17

In order to keep up better with the blog giveaway, I am changing it to weekend freebies instead of Freebie Friday. That way there is a little more flexibility (at least in my own expectations :) on posting our weekly giveaway.

Hope that works for everybody! The winner will be drawn on Mondays. This week's giveaway is a tile pendant of your choice and a chain to wear it with. There are a ton of fun patterns to choose from and these are locally made by one of my fave mom/artist/crafters. To enter leave a comment!

Monday, April 12, 2010

Congrats to numbers 1, 13 and 14 (courtesy of picking for me). That is Storys, the Quintana Family and kathystoddard. You may come in and pick up your prize at Sweet Pea Boutique.

Freebie Fri-Saturday...4/10

Hope you all had a great Easter! Due to the holiday, there was no Freebie Friday post last week. It's been an exciting week at Sweet Pea. We've had construction and carpeting. But at the end, it looks much better, and our annoying lump in the floor is gone and we got to do a bit of Spring cleaning and rearranging. This week, to celebrate our new carpet and make it up to you for missing last week, we are going to do 3 giveaways! Leave a comment to enter for one of three $10 gift certificates to Sweet Pea. Also, if you haven't had a chance, feel free to meander over to for our first Sweet Lizzie's giveaway.

Tuesday, March 30, 2010


Congrats to Anja, who is the winner for this week's drawing. If you need any last minute candy, dresses or hairbows, we've got you covered at the Sweet Pea or Sweet Lizzie's!

Happy Easter, everyone!!!

Winner Freebie Friday

Thanks so much for all you did with spreading the word and entering our giveaway. To avoid last week's little counting snafu, I put all your entries in a bowl and drew one out (no snickering blog friends, I'm just not math-y this week...). I did allow for the extra entry for telling your friends by phone or Facebook (I can definitely appreciate that everyone doesn't love computers).

Anyway congrats to our winner, Sally, you may pick up your $20 gift certificate at Sweet Pea. To the rest of you, have a lovely happy week. I'm planning on spring cleaning this week (ick, but necessary) and can't wait to reclaim my scrapbook room or at least walk through it without tripping on stuff.

Good morning, sorry this post is late. I had a huge dinner party last night at Sweet Lizzie's in the party room and was busy cooking/decorating and partying. You can check out pics at
Anybody who would like to come over and do my dishes, feel free :)

Anyway, the giveaway this week is pretty straightforward. It is a $20 gift certificate to Sweet Pea Boutique. We have a little twist this time though. You can enter by leaving a comment and earn a second entry by sharing about the contest on Facebook or on your blog. Make sure when you comment that you tell me that you've posted so I credit your extra entry. Happy Spring, by the way!

Freebie Fri-Saturday...3/13

This week's edition of Freebie Fridays is celebrating St. Patrick's Day! We have oodles and oodles of new arrivals, from cribs to Spring dresses to well... you name it, it came in this week.

Before I announce this week's giveaway, I thought I'd share five things most people don't realize about the store.

1. We accept all seasons all year long. Hooray for closet cleaning and not having to store it forever.

2. We get around 1500-2000 new things a week. It's always changing at Sweet Pea.

3. We take furniture, too. If you have an extra dresser or twin bed around the house, bring it in and we'll pay cash.

4. We support the local economy and community. From locally made bows from stay at home moms to donations of car seats (checked for recalls of course) to the Justice Center, we try hard to be involved and contribute to Tooele.

5. We've been open 5 1/2 years. Hasn't time flown?

So, now for the part that you are all waiting for, the giveaway. This week's giveaway is a St. Patty's Day gift basket from Sweet Lizzie's filled with delectable green and gold themed candy. I'm not sure of everything that is in there, but I'm pretty sure there will be some yummy taffy, chocolate coins and sugar sanded lemon drops (my personal fave).

Leave a comment to enter and we'll draw a winner on Monday morning...

I am in love with these earrings for Spring. Turquoise is supposed to be one of the big colors this year (according to trend forecasters, THE Color of the year). These earrings will be in today. So, so cute!

Freebie Friday!!! (feel free to giggle at my yet again, lateness)

Dear Blog Friends,
Yes indeedy, I do not rock on the organization skills, but my intentions are good :)

The prize for this weeks Freebie Friday is one free Melissa and Doug Toy (up to a $14.99 value). I love Melissa and Doug toys for 2 reasons. The first is safety. These guys test and retest their toys and seem to put safety and quality above profit. They have never had a recall in the US and have stellar customer service . I once had a customer who had lost one puzzle piece and they sent her a new one FREE! The second reason I like this company is that they make toys that make kids use their imagination. From their art supplies to their play food, kids get to play and make up their own use for the toys. In the picture is M & D's play food sugar cookies. This is the perfect birthday party gift.

To enter Freebie Fri-Saturday, just leave me a comment about your favorite part of Spring. My favorite is the sunshine and flower buds, I'm ready to leave the gray days and snow boots behind.

Congrats to BJ and Statham Family. You can pick up your gift certificates in the store. I always LOVE reading all of your comments...thanks so much for entering and posting!
