Life is good Thanksgiving Event

We need your help decorating our store for the Holidays! 

Join us at Life is good on November 20th to celebrate Thanksgiving by creating a "Thank you Chain." You will be able to write down or draw what you are thankful for, or a good deed that you have done, on a strip of paper.  We will assemble them into a festive chain that will hang in our store.  How long can we make it!

We will also be holding a food drive to benefit the Good Shepard Food Bank.  Non-perishable food items will be collected on that day and will be brought to the Portland warehouse.

Kid friendly with coloring, popcorn, stickers, and balloons.

Don't forget, we accept donations to our Life is good Kids Foundation at the store.  Lets see how much we can raise this holiday season.  Hope to see you there.

Treat #5 - How To Win The Costume Contest

This is an entry in our HALLoween Blog series. Each week leading up to Halloween 2010 we will treat you with internet marketing topics that have a fun and spooky flare.

The kids with the best costumes get the most and best candy, you all knew that, right?

I’ve had some pretty conventional costumes for halloween growing up. The obligatory pumpkin as a baby, the typical vampire as an 8 year old, Ghostbusters at SOME point in the '90s…I can’t remember. Usually, I would wait a day before Halloween and then figure out what I would want to have for a costume. Clearly, wasn’t very prepared and didn’t have much of a strategy. This is probably why I didn’t win any contests at parties.

Having a conventional website is a lot like having a bad costume.
