The Top Fifteen Reasons

top 15

Because you eat well, play well, and live well, I thought I would give you my 15 Top Reasons to shop… well…at none other than LTD 7. There are so many more than 15 reasons why I like to think that we are the number one destination in the Shenandoah Valley when you think of gift shops, but rather than just “say” that, I wanted to prove it to you.

And yes, I want your vote for the Best Gift Shop in the Shenandoah Valley in the regional competition…but certainly NOT without earning it!


 I really like these competitions. They allow me to take a long hard look at my business and decide if we are worthy of your vote and patronage and what we can do to keep being the number one shop in the Shenandoah Valley for gifts. So here are fifteen of the hundreds of reasons why we, at LTD 7, think, and hope, and cross our fingers, and wish upon a star, that we are and will remain your number one choice for shopping.


Reason Number One:


We think out of the box. Well, sometimes. And at other times we will wear a box on our head…just to prove to you we will do anything to earn your business. How many of you remember when I wore a box on my head? Trust me…you are our number one reason for all that we do here at LTD 7. Your dreams are ours and we are so grateful for all you do to allow us to live our dream. See Number Fifteen below.

Reason Number Two:

We hold many classes and workshops in areas that interest you and your children. We are constantly dreaming up new ways to learn and offer these special events to you.

Reason Number Three:

Our special blend of artisans. Seven amazingly talented and diverse women that fill our store with the best they have to offer, all of which compliment the diverse and unique goods you will find at LTD 7.

Reason Number Four:

Parking is never a problem and we can offer delivery and shipping on most anything. If you need it, it will be yours in whatever way we can get it to you.

Reason Number Five:

Our amazing staff! Shoot—I could have written fifteen reasons why I love each of them and cherish their expertise and dedication to us and to you. I am so blessed to have such wonderful team members at LTD 7!(Carolyn and Pam are missing from the picture 😦 )


Reason Number Six:

Our inventory is constantly being rotated, changed and expanded. We truly listen to you and strive always to bring you the latest and greatest of goods and services. There is always something new at LTD 7. I do not need to say more; the store speaks for itself. Just remember, if you want it, get it as we sell out quickly!


Reason Number Seven:



Our daily updates and our twice weekly sales keep you abreast of new items before they hit the sales floor and our sales on Monday and Thursday are not to be missed. Which leads me into…

Reason Number Eight:


Our contests are top of the line. We are known to give away rain boots on rainy days, Chevron blankets on cold days, and baskets of goods and gift cards…every single week there are two ways to win…at least. And then some. If you have not liked us on Facebook, I would strongly encourage you to do so.

Reason Number Nine:

Cupcakes! Sweet Nana Cakes delivers fresh and delectable treats that please even the most discriminating palette. Try one or a dozen the next time you come in.

Reason Number Ten:

Pinterest. A special customer once said, “LTD 7 makes Pinterest come alive.” That is our goal.

Reason Number Eleven:

Unique Fashions and Jewelry.


This year brought us into the realm of fashion and more jewelry. It has been a huge hit, no doubt in part because of our adorable “face” of LTD 7, who models the latest and greatest items to hit the sales floor. Honestly, I see her in some of our outfits and want to buy each and every one of them for myself.

Reason Number Twelve:

“The best gift is the one you want to keep for yourself.” LTD 7 is sure to please you when you need special and unique gifts. We can create special gift baskets, bows and gift wrap your purchases, as well. When you need that special something, not found in big box stores, please do think of us first.

Reason Number Thirteen:

The smiles. Yours and ours. How many of you just can’t wait to see who is working on any given day? I know I even look forward to working behind the scenes when Lissa is on the floor, because I get to see her smile. And we promise to do everything in our power to see that you leave our store smiling, from ear to ear. It just makes the day better to smile, don’t you think?


 Reason Number Fourteen:

At LTD 7 we believe in charity. How many of you have come to our Markets and learned that a portion of our proceeds are put right back into the community and into causes that are near and dear to our heart? It is in giving that we receive.

And…drumroll, please…

Reason Number Fifteen:

YOU! The customer! We have the best customers in the entire world! You make our day with your conversations, your updates on friends near and far and all the many ways you share our dreams at LTD 7. You are the apple of our eyes, the cherry on our sundae, the peach in our pie and the reason we do all that we can to be your Number One gift shop in the Shenandoah Valley. We love you and we are devoted to you and we truly hope that shows in our faces and in our products.
