A List of our 15 Best Selling Items for 2011

The numbers are in and, while some of the items on the list surprised us by making their way as top sellers, others were a no brainer.  We have a very diverse selection of products at Anderson Avenue so it is exciting to see that we are reaching customers equally in different categories.  That's quite a task for our marketing guys.  Also, it was a tight race for several of the top spots this year with number 15 ending in a tie of kids chairs.  Some categories were pretty balanced among colors or styles but a couple had clear first place winners and we listed those.  Thanks again for a great 2011.  It was definitely a growing year for us as we redesigned our website, strategized for new customer programs and products and realized some growing pains in the process.  However, our customers have been amazing in supporting us and growing with us.  You're AWESOME!  Thanks so much!

New Years Resolutions

We stumbled upon a list of the most popular New Years resolutions and I have to agree that a few of my personal resolutions are on this list..... every year!  Although, I am not a fan of so called "resolutions" and prefer to make permanent lifestyle changes, I still find myself taking a toll every December 31st and making a few resolutions of my own.  Take a look at the list and see how many of these you have committed to for 2012 and how you plan to stick to them.  Also, let us know anything unique that you vow to change this year.
