Pair of cute chicks at Memento Gift Shop

During the past 10 days or so, we’ve had some great sunny weather here in Palm Springs. Judging from conversations with our customers, the weather seems to be drawing in folks who live within a two hour drive from the desert who want to escape the cloudy, foggy weather they seem to have closer to the coast of Southern California. Some people drive in for the day for a change of scenery, while others said they came for a weekend getaway. When you add them to the snowbird population and normal tourism here, it has generated lots of customers visiting our store this month. We’re seeing lots of people shopping for Easter goodies; mom and grandmothers shopping for items to build their own Easter baskets. Some are shipping things across country, so they really need to plan ahead. Our Easter assortment is selling fast…and we have noticed that our fuzzy yellow chicks are attracting a great deal of attention too.

Just the other day I overheard a customer outside of our store telling a friend about what they saw while in our shop. The exact quote I overheard was: “Hey Billy, go check out those chicks in the Memento store over hear, they are really cute.” Of course, the reference was to our adorable fuzzy yellow chicks, but hearing just that statement made me chuckle to myself…thus the inspiration for today’s blog post was born.

If you are in Palm Springs soon, stop by and check out the cute chicks we have in our store, hurry before they get picked up.
