November is one of my favorite times of year! Theoretically, we should be breaking out our jackets and drinking hot cocoa by our fire pits right about now, at least on some nights. Sadly, we’re not. Here in the South, we’re still in shorts and flip flops. Here at Buywise though, we’re not sad. We’re excited it’s November for one very important reason. Our brand new Foley location is about to open! If you go to our Foley tab under Locations, you can read all about our great new manager, Tommy Braggs. He’s a great guy; we want you to come in and meet him! You guys, we are super excited to be offering some gorgeous furniture in this store. We’ve made sure to make available something for everyone. We have traditional, contemporary, and some super swag sofas and loveseats, as well as beautiful bedrooms and dining sets. We also carry a fantastic line of furniture that’s a little beachy, a little Southwestern. I have some of it in my own house. And not to brag, well maybe a little, but we are super proud to be the very first Ashley Urban Foundry representative ever in rent to own. You guys, the very FIRST! You can see some of it on our main page. And speaking of first, even though it’s just the beginning of November, I know some of you must be thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, which will be here before you know it! If you’re looking for a new dining table, come in and see all the lovely ones we carry. As a little happy, I’m leaving you with my super yummy carrot soufflé recipe. It’s our family’s tradition to have it every holiday! Enjoy!
