Fan Mail From Some Flounder!

July 26th, 2010

We’ve gotten some fabulous Fan Mail that we just had to share with our Sisters! We are just busting with pride over some of our latest comments/posts and wanted to share our She-Mail with you!

“This is the best little shop in the WORLD!!! i live on tybee and every time i drive by my car tries to turn into the parking lot. love, love, love”. From our Sister Romaine Hooker (great name, or what???)

“Oh, I am so knocked out by every Sister, your TaTas campaign is inspiring, touching and pretty darn near brings a tear to my eye! Onward and upward girls, you are the best.” Sister in spirit, Rebecca Rice

“I am so glad the Tybee TaTas is sponsoring the free screening!! I will wear my t-shirt in honor of this occasion” . Mary Ann

Thanks girls! We just love y’all to pieces and couldn’t be happier that y’all are a part of The Sisterhood!

Now keep those cards, letters, posts and She-Mails coming! xoxoxxo

Tybee TaTas Offer FREE Mammograms for Tybee Women!

The Tybee TaTas, spearheaded by Seaside Sisters and Marlin Monroe’s/Fannies on the Beach, are sponsoring a FREE MAMMOGRAM day on Tybee Island! That’s right, Sisters…no excuses! Bring “your girls” into our mobile mammo unit for FREE! The mobile unit belongs to St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital and is a comfy, private and state-of-the-art rolling mammography unit. Screenings will be read by our very own Sisterhood member, Dr. Susan Mahany!

Screenings will be done from 9 am til 4 pm, Thursday, August 19th at 602 1st Street, Tybee Island, GA. Appointments are required, so call 912.819.6800. AND, financial assistance is available for post-screening needs for women who are uninsured and meet certain financial criteria. Call 912.819.7055 for eligibility.

Funds raised from the annual Tybee TaTas “Save the Girls” Beach Party make this event possible. The gang raised over $13,000 last year, with part of the proceeds going to the Savannah Young Survivor’s Coalition and the rest to sponsoring this free service.

So come on ladies…no excuses! The screening is FREE and every Mammo Momma gets a FREE gift from Seaside Sisters! Call for your appointment NOW!

After the 4th, the Sisters need a FIFTH!

Glory be, what a weekend! The island was just swarming with sun-seeking, fun-having, stars n’ bars wearing crowds! Tybee put her best foot forward with great weather, a spectacular fireworks show and a whole lot of activities for anyone visiting on the island.

The shop was all a buzz as well! Throngs showed up to browse, shop and park their fannies in our fabulous new solid pine Adirondack rocking chairs. Heck, some folks stayed in those dang chairs so long, we were afraid we were gonna have to serve them dinner!

First up, the cute little chapel from the Miley Cyrus movie, “The Last Song” was moved down the beach to its new home, right across the street from Seaside Sisters. The entire chapel was dismantled, like a ginormous puzzle, and trucked down the highway to its new home on the marsh, where it will serve as a wedding venue. Boy howdy, what a parking job that was to get that big ol thing backed into the new lot on the marsh! Thank the Lawd, the Sisters weren’t behind the wheel on that one!

Fan Mail…From some Flounder!

We came into the shop Friday morning to find some lovely fan mail posted on our door! We were, of course, just tickled pink to see that y’all loved us enough to leave us notes! We left them up all weekend, because we were just proud as pralines! Come to find that the fan was none other than Sister Sallie’s granddaughter, Ansley! Well bless your heart Ansley…we appreciate the kudos! And if any of you Sisters wants to send us some fan mail, we will be more than delighted to post it on our blog!!!! We just LOVE our Sisters!

Walking Matilda

This furry customer just charmed the flip flops off of everyone in the store! She came in not once, but twice with her Momma, and we fell in love with her both times! Little Matilda was wandering the store while her owner shopped, and played with the Sisters and all of our customers…she is now our honorary Shop Dog! So Matilda, when you come back to town, come on in and see us…we’ll put your furry fabulousness to work!!!! What a face!!!!!
