Better Late Than Never, Right?

Well, things have been clicking along at the new store. we FINALLY have a sign up. Unfortunately, it doesn't light up. So I am arguing, err...I mean working on that with my landlord. Merry Christmas, right?

Anyway, we are closing today 12/24/08 at 4pm and will be closed until 12/31. On that day our hours are 10am-4pm.

I am STILL working on new hours for our store that will begin 01/02/09. I will post as soon as I know for sure.

Thank you to those of you who helped us have a successful holiday season.

Merry Christmas from Cutie Tooties!

New Store Location & Black Friday Announcement

Well, we have a new store location. Cutie Tooties will be moving to

The Shops at Bearden Place on
Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2008.
We will be closed 11/26-11/27 for Moving & Thanks giving but will open at our new location for Black Friday.
The new address is: 5807D Kingston Pike 37919
This shopping center is next to the La Parigo restaurant. Talloni & Kristi also used to be there. Our store will be in between Fleenor's & Artisans. We will actually have almost twice as much space, and YES we will have a play area. :)
I will be announcing our Black Friday deals here next week, so be sure to check back. There will be A LOT of great deals to be had and some great doorbusters! There will also be some freebies for the first 25 customers!
Our store will open for regular shopping at 8am on black friday.
Now for the fun part.
IF you are interested in shopping earlier, please send me an email and sign up to help us move on Wednesday. If you can offer 2 hours of your time to help with packing, inventory and moving, you will get a pass to come in at 7am.
Benefits of Helping
  • You will have access to 'while supplies last' freebies
  • You will have first access to the 'while supplies last' doorbuster deals.
  • You will have first access to our new toys and other fun products that we are getting just in time for Black Friday
  • You will receive extra cash on purchases of gift certificates

I may throw in some other cool benefits too. That's what I have so far. If you are interested in helping on Wednesday, please email me: to sign up. Unfortunately, babies and toddlers would not be a good idea as the doors will be open constantly and the toys will be gone. :(

We are excited about this move. I think it will be easier for everyone once we get there!

Store update

Well, life with us is never boring, that is for sure. As far as we know, beginning December 1, all 3 kiddos will be changing preschools. K & K will be getting special ed schooling and B will be in a mainstream preschool. (Thank you for the recommendations!) I have turned in my notice to my current landlord at my store. I am to be out with the store cleaned by December 1. She was very nice about it, but still I'm sure that is not convenient for her either.

So now, I have to find a new place for the store and get myself moved in by December 1. I have 3 prospective places in mind and Maha, I may be calling you if those do not work out. The 3 I am looking at are in Bearden on Kingston pike! I would like to be on K. pike if possible, but if not, Papermill would be fine too.

I will let you know as soon as I know. I expect to make my decision in the next few days. I will post here and will send out an email.

Dilemma: Need Your Help

Ok, this could get lengthy, but I will try to keep it as short as possible. So, my kiddos were recently tested for special ed preschool, and it appears that 2 will be recommended for 'full time' preschool at Ft. Sanders near UT campus. I think this is great for them.....BUT, my other son does not qualify. Currently all 3 are enrolled out west near my store, in Farragut. Ft. sanders hours are either M-Thrs 8am-11:30am or Tues-fri. 11:30am-3pm. Other preschool (in Farragut) is M & Wed or M-thurs 9am-2pm

My store in Farragut is open M_W_F 10am-5pm & saturdays. Usually I close for about 20 mins 2 days per week to drive 5 mins down the road and get my kids and bring them back to my store. Obviously that won't be working for my other 2. I don't feel comfortable putting my 3 year olds on a bus, so that is out. I have help *maybe* one day that could transport them to me, but I am still left with a lot of driving.Any way I try to figure it out, I just can't get them where they need to be and keep my store open.

But-i plan to keep my store open. SO- i am scrambling to see if there are any preschools closer to Bearden or UT campus that might have 1 older 2's or early 3 year old class opening. Do you know of any? I definitely want a preschool rather than day care, not looking for full days.
ALSO-this increases the liklihood that I will need a retail space a bit further east. Any thoughts, or suggestions? I would be leasing.
thanks. I am truly lost on how I will pull this one off!

oh--PS, they will probably start at Ft. Sanders in December. So no rush...take your time. :)

"Giving Back"
Under the Nile is proud to be part of a project contributing to the development of independent and self sustained communities. The '13 Villages Project' is a campaign co-conducted by Under the Nile and its Farm in Egypt (Sekem). It takes place in 13 rural villages in Sharkeya, Egypt. Through vocational training and infrastructural development, the project is improving the health, skills and overall well being of the village inhabitants. We provide excellent health care as well as education on dental and over all physical health. We begin by educating the villagers on how to make our fruit and vegetable toys. Each village receives an advance for their work and the materials needed to produce that toy. Upon completion, we pick up the finished goods and pay them fair wages for their work. We are very excited to see the end result. Happy, educated, and healthy human beings.

Coming SOON!!
2 new prints in Happy Heiny's One-Size Diapers!
