THE WHITE ELEPHANT IS NO MORE. BOTH CUSTOMERS AND SOME VENDORS AND CONSIGNERS WERE NOT PLAYING NICE AND SO WE CLOSED THE STORE IN FAYETTEVILLE. HOWEVER, MS. DORIS HAS GRACIOUSLY TAKEN OVER THE MAJORITY OF WEE AND HAS MOVED EVERYONE'S PRODUCTS TO ROGERS. 215 W WALNUT IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN ROGERS. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT SAID YOU WERE STAYING WITH US AS WE MOVED... THANK YOU. EVERYONE WHO HAS MERCHANDISE WITH US AND DOES NOT WANT TO REMAIN WITH US, WE WILL WORK SOMETHING OUT ...TO GET YOUR MERCHANDISE TO YOU. SORRY ABOUT NOT POSTING SOONER, BUT HEALTH ISSUES AGAIN HAVE PLAGUED US AND WITH GRAMZ AKA "DORIS" OPENING THIS NEW SHOP, WHICH BY THE WAY IS CALLED THE SAPPHIRE LOFT, I THINK THAT YOU WILL BE PLESANTLY SURPRISED BY NOT ONLY THE LOCATION, BUT THE UPSCALE MERCHANDISE AND QUALITY VENDORS THAT WE HAVE JOINING US. I WILL NOT BE CHECKING THIS WEBSITE AGAIN, SO NO NEED FOR COMMENTS, OUTBURSTS OR NEGATIVITY AND AND THE PAGE WILL BE CLOSED BY WDNESDAY, APRIL 9TH. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THE GOOD OF THE WHITE ELEPHANT... BUT SOME PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW "WHAT NO DRAMA" MEANS.
We will be opening up a little later tomorrow, Saturday, January 25th. We should be opening at 2 or just a hair after if at all possible. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we will be running a couple of great sales here and there... such as artwork and prints for 20% off and many more. Appreciate you all and hope to see you this weekend!!!
GUESS WE ARE GOING TO TRY AND BE OPEN TOMORROW FOLKS... SEEMS LIKE MAYBE THE ICE AND SNOW IS OUT FOR A BIT SO COME ON OUT AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN FIND AND CHECK OUT THE NEW ITEMS COMING IN. HERE'S TO A GOOD FRIDAY AND WEEKEND EVERYONE. TAKE CARE!!!
Okay everyone... do not know about the rest of you all, but just about tired of this cold crud. According to weather reports, looks like we might get a little break from the rain, ice and snow tomorrow, Tuesday, but temps still super cold and then on Wednesday, another front moving in with rain, ice, sleet, and then snow later possibly mixed with ice again Wednesday evening. If it isn't one thing, it's another. With great regret I guess we will remain closed until this pas...ses due to 1- the entrances into our parking lot are extremely slick and then the new reports of ice and cold again. We will continue to keep you posted on a daily basis of our business, but we hope that when the cold air lets up some and it is safe for all to be getting out, that you will make us one of your first spots to stop and shop. Thanks for holding in there for us and know that we are thinking of each of you.
Well, ain't much done on the streets around here and super cold so i am kind of doubting we will be open again tomorrow... parking lot is nothing but ice as well as the side roads and highway in front. Would be terrible trying to get into here and taking risks, so everybody hang in there and we will do our best to open as soon as it starts to warm up again... and pray that it is soon...lol. Take care everyone and stay warm... don't be outside any longer than 20-25 minutes otherwise might take a risk of getting frost bit according to the news. Talk with you all soon we hope!
Hey folks... looks like the weather has gotten us again! A lot of businesses and churches have closed and the highways are covered, so we will be closed today, Sunday, January 5, 2014. If the weather clears, we will reopen on Monday, January 6th at noon as normal. Please everyone stay safe and be careful if you are out in the elements. Take care everyone and don't get out unless it is necessary!
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE... We hope that each of you have had a fantastic holiday and made it through it safe and sound! We just wanted to send out a little reminder that we will be reopening today at noon and will run until we have no other customers coming in and that we have a big clearance sale on so many items... and willing to work with everyone on what you find. Also a few of our vendors have sales going on in their booths as well and love to see you all come out and ta...ke advantage of the savings. we know that there is many stores having sales right now, but do not forget to support all our small businesses out there including ours. Take complete advantage of this sale... it will last until December 30th, but the sooner you come in, the more there will be to choose from. We appreciate each and every one of you and hope that the holidays have been good for all of you! Take care of yourself and the ones that you love and never forget those that are in the military and all those around you... through disagreements and the times of hardship, those that are and have been a part of your life are blessings... blessings that we all should appreciate and care for. Take care all and come on in if you can. We will be waiting to help you find items that you may be looking for! See you soon!
JUST A LITTLE REMINDER EVERYONE... We have tomorrow left open before closing for the Christmas holiday! If you are still looking for last minute items and wonderful gift or stock stuffers, we still have a lot to choose from. Be sure and and come on in and take advantage while you can and support your small business in the area. We also have lots of Christmas items left and all "WEE" and "L3" Christmas items and decor is half off the tagged prices except the wreaths which have already been reduced by half! Never too late to start looking forward to next years! Come on by today and see what you can find for that hard to find individual this holiday. Take care to all and remember, we will be closed both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to celebrate the holidays with our families! Merry Christmas to all and to all... a good night!
OKAY FOLKS... I have been super patient with almost everyone associated with us here at the White Elephant. I am amazed at most of the support and "nice" relations between us and our vendors and consigners, but some of the petty comments and negative remarks that seem to be following us is continuing to grow for some reason. We have worked with each and every vendor in this building to offer help and have helped and worked diligently to make your stay here as comfortable an...d stress free as possible. However, there seems to be some issues that some of "those people" still are not understanding. I realize we have a business here and have obligations concerning each and every one of our vendors, consigners, and customers, but please realize that Christopher's cancer has reached his diaphragm and does not have much longer here on this Earth and in this world with us all. He can only do so much and any of you know that he goes way out of his way to help where he feels he needs too... including buying merchandise just to help vendors with their booth rentals, unpacking and packing things and carrying things, that he really shouldn't, but does none the less. Someone in his condition shouldn't even be here working with all the pain and torment his body is going through at this time. We would appreciate that each of you please respect and be patient with us during this time... we are dealing with a lot and although we never know when things like cancer, etc. comes into our lives, but when it does, and as quickly as itit can progress, as in Christopher's case, it truly makes it difficult not only on him, but those that care and love him. Stress here at the Emporium has been high the last few months and we want to be good people, honest people, and a valued asset while you are with us or as long as you come in. Again, something I have brought up many times before, we are a stress free business and if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all. No more yelling, no more "whinning", no more negative spoken words will be tolerated here at this business. We all want the same thing... success and to make some money and enjoy this type of business. I hope I am not jeopardizing the patronage that we so much love here at the White Elephant, but sometimes issues need to be thrown out there and sometimes "tact" will go a long way while working with us. Hope each of you the best for the holidays and a wonderful new year ahead. I watch the posts on here constantly so please, let me say that again, please keep the negative remarks, the opinions that you may "think" you know to yourselves... otherwise I will delete them. Truly hoping that each of you have less negativity in your lives than we have in ours at this time and for great health and wealth next year. Take care!!!
We have several bookshelves and utility shelves and displays for sale here at the White Elephant. Many of them starting at $10 and up, so if you know of anyone or maybe even yourself, looking for an additional bookshelf or extra shelving, come on out and check out what we are trying to clear out to make space. Downsizing somewhat and needing to get rid of these, among others. Good prices on good shelving and displays!!! Not to mention still lots of great deals going on here at the White Elephant Emporium!
JUST A LITTLE REMINDER...Christmas Eve is in 7 days guys and gals, so if your looking for some last minute gifts, stocking stuffers, or just something for yourself, be sure and check out all the great items here at the Emporium. Many items on sale and wanting a home! Christmas wreaths are half off, half off all "WEE" tagged Christmas items, plus much, much more! Come on out this week and finish up those last minute items without the wait.
WELL, IT IS SNEEKING UP ON US REAL QUICK... THE DAY IS ALMOST HERE. HAVE LOTS OF GREAT IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS AND STOCKING STUFFERS AND TONS OF OTHER ITEMS READY FOR THE TAKING AND NO WHERE NEAR THE CROWD OF SOME OTHER PLACES. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES AND GRAB THE SALES WHILE THEY ARE THERE. HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE!!!
Hey everyone... well, after snow ice freezing temps, water pipes freezing, and sickness to boot, we are open once again and we need you all to come out and get to shopping!!! Clearance sales and liquidation, vendor sales, lots of displays and shelving for sale as well... we need all the patronage we can get right now. Being closed for a week has really put a damper on our sales and vendor sales as well. Come on out today and shop shop shop till you drop and support the Whi...te Elephant Emporium' s business and all that are a part of our family here. One other thing--- we are changing our hours from now until Christmas. Those hours are noon to 5 each and every day of the week... that's right, back to seven days a week for a little bit to make up for some of the lost time we had during the ice and snow storms. Anywho, we hope that each of you can come out and find a little something for maybe Christmas or just to take home and enjoy it yourself... oh and bring family and friends and help us to help you and our community. Everyone take care and be careful out there and hope to see you all and we still have a lot of items that are brand new... ready for the holidays and any occasion. Come support us this holiday season!!!
Hey everyone... just wanted to post real fast concerning our hours today... seems like everyone in the area is getting ready for this ice blast that is coming through and so we will be closed until it passes or until we see other markets open up which will hopefully be soon. We want you all to be safe and stay off the roads until the weather passesl you never know when accidents can happen.... it is always a matter of when really. You all take care and be safe and we will see you all soon!!!
