Thursday Thirteen #34 ~ The Apron Edition

Woo hoo, it has been a long, long time since I did a TT! I may have even forgotten how!

Presenting 13 reasons to buy wear an apron from my store: Apron Frenzy:

  1. Aprons keep your clothing free from dirt, stains and odors. It reduces wear and tear on your regular clothes!
  2. You can use apron pockets to store or carry utensils or even treats for the little ones!
  3. Aprons can serve as a handy towel to dry freshly scrubbed hands!
  4. Aprons energize the atmosphere of your kitchen. Everyone can feel Martha Stewart-esque in a fun and functional apron!
  5. Consider it kitchen art! You decorate your kitchen walls, why not the cook?
  6. Wear an apron because your mom or grandma did! The memories, the love! Consider it retro chic!
  7. Aprons help to maintain hygienic and healthy conditions.
  8. You will need one for National Wear Your Apron Day, which in the U.S. is the first Monday after Mother’s Day (bet you didn’t know that, eh?).
  9. Aprons can be living/moving holiday decorations! Want a table runner to match your Thanksgiving/Fall apron, your Christmas apron? Just let me know and I can do it!
  10. When you reach down and grab the hem of your apron you have an instant catch-all! Carry peas or tomatoes in from the garden, scoop up all the playdough from the table, take all the corn husks to the garbage. It’s limitless!
  11. Buying handmade makes better gift giving, is better for people and better for the environment! Why don’t you take the Buy Handmade pledge this year?
  12. I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org

  13. They make excellent hostess and holiday gifts! The are unique, personal and handmade! Know someone who likes a particular them or item? Let me know and I will see what I can find! Yes, I do custom orders when possible! (like say scooters? or red, white and blue? or snowman/snowflakes? – yes, those are some I am already doing!)
  14. If you think about it aprons are fun and functional. And they are pretty darned cute too! Head on over to Apron Frenzy to see what I mean (yes, there is a new one up. the pictures sucks, but my partner will fix that tonight I hope).

  1. I didn’t forget about writing about your aprons!! It’s coming soon! I didn’t realize there was a National Wear Your Apron Day! (there’s a day for everything!) Today is a day close to my heart, Bipolar Disorder Awareness Day. That’s what I wrote about in my TT!

    Happy Days!

  2. Hurray for aprons! I love them! They keep my clothes from being destroyed by cooking. And what a great thing to see you celebrate your new store!

  3. “retro chic!” – I love it. My grandmother will wear her apron to church if she could. You have just made me miss my Gran terribly, I have got to go phone her right now.

  4. Oh my goodness, your aprons are so cute! I’ll be Christmas shopping at your store for sure. πŸ™‚

  5. It worked…now I want an apron!

  6. Creative way to advertise your aprons! I had no idea there WAS a National Wear Your Apron Day … seriously! I did give your Apron Frenzy a 2nd plug at Small Reflections on yesterday in my Whimsical Wednesday post because Monday’s Musings didn’t get many visitors. I hope it drives some traffic your way ;–)
    I’m a dog person too (in case you couldn’t tell).
    Hugs and blessings,

    Aprons are cool. You’re right it does bring back memories of my Grandmother and Mother wearing them. Your aprons would make great Christmas gifts. πŸ™‚

  8. Sweet! I’m loving the way aprons are coming back in style!

  9. By Peanuts, do you mean the Charlie Brown gang? I’d love to see that one!

    Thanks for dropping by earlier. πŸ™‚

  11. I love that handmade pledge button. I’m going to have to look into that. I have a business where I make and embroider baby items. I’d love it if more people bought handmade! πŸ™‚

  12. Looking good! I look forward to seeing more aprons, too. πŸ™‚

  13. Alright, I’m sold. i’ll go check out the site. πŸ˜‰

  16. I love aprons for all the reasons listed.

  17. Hooray for Aprons!
    I may just have to give some as Christmas gifts this year… it is a good idea!

  18. I’m working my way backwards through the posts, so I’ve seen the pictures. They’re so adorable!
