Frik-n-Frak's BLOG Update!

Frik-n-Frak's Blog Update

Hello Bloggers! It's been quite some time since we've posted an update, but WOW! ...Have we ever been busy!

As Cyber Monday approaches, we have been preparing a SALE for our customers at Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack! Those of you who have subscribed to our Newsletter Mailing List will soon be receiving a notification detailing your exclusive "Insider" benefits! If you haven't yet subscribed to our newsletter, be sure to visit and get signed up! We regularly offer special discounts to our subscribers!

Both Frik AND Frak are about over their sicknesses. Jeeesh! Talk about a couple of months of being down! Yuk! We've both still got the lingering cough, but are WAY improved from even a few days ago.

Frik (or is he Frak?) ended up breaking a finger a week ago! Yup...what a klutz! For a few days it looked like a cartoon character finger! Although still a bit sore, it's much better. What a dope!

Frak (or is she Frik?) has masterfully decorated the Christmas tree! You should just see it! It's a real beauty! Although the instruction sheet said that the average time of assembly was 20 minutes, it was two and a half hours last night getting the 9 footer assembled! So, ok... maybe we're a bit slow. But, it's absolutely beautiful and was worth the effort! Very sparkly! to run Saturday errands! Be on the lookout for our Cyber Monday Special!

See ya!
