New Lamps - New Fragrances

If you are not familiar with Lampe Berger Paris, stop in and we will demonstrate this age old room purifying system.  Not only do the lamps purify the air and rid your home of any unwanted odor, they simultaneously dispense a wonderful fragrance of your choice.
FYI:  A Frenchman named Maurice Berger was the first to receive a patent, (1897) for the purifying system.  He founded the company in France and primarily sold the lamps to hospitals and mortuaries.
Today you will find Lampe Berger lamps in most homes in Paris. 
The Olive Branch will be featuring Lampe Berger throughout the summer, giving free gift with purchase.

Home From Market. I Shopped Til' I Dropped!

That's me.
I left early morning last Thursday for market in Atlanta and arrived back in Council Bluffs last night.  We had a wonderful time and found so many fun things.  Soon the orders will begin to arrive and The Olive Branch will be full of awesome spring merchandise.  We will have new jewelry that is absolutely gorgeous and the cutest tee-shirts on the market. 
 I ordered new kitchen gadgets and baby gifts. 
UPS will be delivering door hangers and florals before you know it. 
One of my most exciting finds is a new greeting card line that is totally original and so artsy.  Cute Valentine gifts are already here.
When we were in the gourmet market I found two new food lines,
one actually from Iowa. 
Come in and check out the new merchandise periodically.  
You can also save $10.00 if you spend $50.00 or more
during the remainder of January. 
 Just say, "I saw that you went to market."
Looking forward to your visit.
