Here’s another December discount I’ve never seen before Christmas. Now through Dec. 12, get 40 percent off your entire order at www.thymes.com plus free shipping. Use promo code FRIENDS28 at the checkout. This is a great sale if you missed the fall warehouse sale and of course this is good on all current scents, soaps, lotions, candles, mists and diffusers. If you haven’t tried the Thymes Frasier Fir scents, give it a shot. It’s authentically Christmas-y.
One more sale: Ambiance at Home (5500 Cottonwood Lane SE., Prior Lake, 952-440-6757, www.ambiance-athome.com) is having its annual sale with amazing bargains. Prices are about half of wholesale on accessories such as pottery, table linens, dried and silk flowers, fake fruits, lamps, rugs and framed art. I thought the deals on art were especially good. The furniture pieces are limited but fairly well-priced. The sale runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. through Sunday.
