Summer Time
Whats Happening in June 2016

June Already?
This year is flying by so fast! Can you believe it is already June? It’s time for us to start thinking about graduations, lemonade, barefeet, and bathing suits.
After all the hustle and bustle of life the start of summer is also a great time to hang out with your friends for some much needed girl time. Here at Crackerjacks-Essential Giftware, we have some great classes and fun events planned. So, after you jump out of the pool, throw on your flip flops and head over to Crackerjacks to check out our new products as well as some of our fabulous classes.

****Looking forward to our “Cleverly Mine” Retreat in July in Big Bear
