February is finally here!! I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of excited. I love our winters here in Northern Michigan but summers are my absolute favorite and we are getting closer to spring! The first week of February is already in the books and Valentine’s Day is already next week! We love Valentine’s Day. It’s such a fun and carefree holiday. I love surprising my kids with little chocolates, candies or trinkets. My husband usually gets a nice dinner in (it’s the thought that counts, right?).
Looking for something special this Valentine’s Day? Whether you are shopping for a significant other or yourself, Grandpa Shorter’s has you covered! Plus, save an extra 20% off fordite beads, fordite pendants, mixed stone jewelry, pudding stones, Petoskey Stone jewelry and tie tacks.
Today on the blog I’m sharing some of my favorite pieces so grab a cup of coffee and let’s shop!
Fordite Beads – Add some “wow-factor” to your Pandora charm bracelet with a unique Fordite Bead. These beads come in many different beautiful color arrangements and feature a metal inlay, perfect for easily adding to your bracelet.
Did you know? These beads are unique in the way that they are manufactured. The “rocks” used for these beads are an accidental byproduct of automotive factories hand spray-painting the cars. Not only can you add eye-catching color to your Pandora bracelet, but also display a piece of Michigan’s rich automotive history on your wrist.
Pudding Stone Jewelry – Gorgeous mixed stones found and polished locally here in Northern Michigan.
Did you know? Michigan pudding stones were formed in Canada over one billion years ago by volcanic activity and later moved by glacier ice sheets. These conglomerates are found in only a few areas of the world. Each area has pudding stones that differ in color combinations, depending on the types of rock that were fused together by the volcanic activity in that region.
Petoskey Stone Jewelry – The Petoskey Stone is a precious stone in Michigan natives’ hearts and, due to its intricate design, it has gained admirers across the map! With such a pleasing disposition it only made sense to work the stone into a wearable form.
Did you know? Every Petoskey Stone has its own unique pattern, color, size, and shape, meaning no two are exactly alike.
Petoskey Stone Tie Tacks – Beautiful and unique Petoskey Stone Tie Tack’s are a great way to symbolize and remember your trip Up North!
Regardless of what you purchase or make this Valentine’s Day, make it a special day to remember!
