New Jewerly In!

You've Seen it in your J Jill catalog but now we have it here!

Born in England, jewelry designer Ian Gibson has spent many years traveling the world absorbing various cultural influences.
Schooled in geology and petrology, his love of rocks and fossils was transformed into a love of metals while apprenticing
with silversmiths in Thailand. After several initial experiments a line of handcrafted sterling jewelry was born.
The individual pendants and beads are formed from raw materials by hand. Casting processes are not used. The line
incorporates elements of sterling silver, semi precious stones, pearl and shell. Ian and his wife Jessica are the backbone
of the company. The finished work is produced in their studio in Philadelphia. Aided by a talented staff of local Philadelphia artisans
they strive daily in their quest to produce unique designs matched with an utmost attention to detail. J & I is sold in galleries, fine boutiques
and museum gift shops nationally and internationally.... and now at Encore!

Mom's Advice
"Don't talk to strangers!" "Eat your Vegetables!"

MY Advice
Shop for you Mom at Encore this Mother's Day!!

It's HER day, show her how much you care with some of our great gifts!
Here are my Top 10 favorite Mom's Day gifts:

1. Garden in a Bag
Make gardening simple... as simple as a brown paper bag. Shop from Parsley, Oregano and Chives.

2. Me! Bath

Every Mom loves to be pampered! Give your mom yummy smelling body treats from Me! Bath. We have Body Ice Cream, Shower Sherbet and Body Icing in flavors like Cucumber Melon, Peaches and Creme and Lavender Lullaby.

3. Coffee
How about treating your Mom to some of our gourmet coffee! We have 9 different delicious flavors including Hazelnut Creme, Snickerdoodle, Coconut Creme and a special Encore Blend.

4. Spring Door Mats
For a woman that loves a visitor, why not brighten her doorstep with you and a bright spring door Mat from our favorite company, TAG!

5. Jewelry
What woman does not love jewelry? At Encore we carry a wide collection of different jewelry and styles.

6. Garden Apron
She loves to garden in style! To go with your Garden in a Bag, get your Mom a Garden Apron!

7. Lemon Verbena kitchen soap and lotion
Want to keep her happy in the kitchen making your favorite treats? Treat her to our favorite kitchen soap and hand lotion.

8. Lavender Spa Wrap
Wrap her up in the most relaxing scent... lavendar!

9. Picture Frames
Fill a frame with your favorite picture of you and your mom!

10. Wild Thymes Cooking Sauces
Pick from Apricot Cranberry Walnut, Thai Chili Roasted Garlic, Chili Ginger Honey and Morrocan Spicy Pepper

The great thing about Mom is that she will love anything that comes from you (especially if

Great Gifts for Grads!

It's that time again! We are sad to be losing a longtime member of our Encore Family,

Katie Kestle

She has been a great employee, supply manager, life saver and friend. Katie... you will be missed!

Also a special thanks and good-bye to Amanda Stansbury our Spring Intern!

When we aren't sobbing we are discussing the best graduation gifts to give and get!

Check out Katie and Amanda's Top 10

10. A photo album- Graduates want to keep there memories close by. Can't go wrong
with photo albums or boxes.

9. Stationary- Graduates have lots of thank yous to give as well as people to keep up with. Don't think that just because we are the duigital generation that we won't use paper and pen. Shop from the fun styles at Encore or GET US PERSONALIZED NOTECARDS!!!!

8. Nice Writing Pen- Again, to go along with the PERSONALIZED NOTECARDS

7. Fun Home Decor- We are leaving our college apartments and are ready for things that match... big girl decor to go along with big girl jobs!

6. Picture Frames- Again, big girl decor and memories close by... nice frames solve two of our needs

5. Serenity Angels- These are great keepsakes and also are inspiring!

4. New Tokoyo Bay Watch- We need to be ontime to our big girl job and look good while we do it. Check out our new styles by Tokyo Bay!!!
3. Something RU (or whatever school your gift recepient went to)- Check out the pictures of Muse Fountain or the Fused Glass in the store. Both are great!

2. Jewelry- This is something we can wear on graduation day, to our new job and hang onto for a while. Choose something unique and timeless. We are sure to think of you each time we wear it.

1. Money- The gift that always fits... We could use it to buy our graduation dress we have on hold at Encore :)
