Thankful for alot

Im thankful for friends & family and you of course. Without you our faithful recognition loyalists, we wouldn't be here, and I wouldn't be able to do any of the fun things that you enable me to do.

I am truly thankful that I have a job I love, a great boss, a healthy, happy family, and a great network of people. I am thankful that my brother is able to travel home tomorrow to be with us, and I am thankful for too many things for this blog post.

Without my friends and family I wouldn't be who I am, and if I wasn't who I am then you wouldn't like me for me, and we all know its easier to buy from someone you like so....

But I digress. I wanted to use this time to give thanks for my health, and my life. You all are important to me in a special way, and I hope that I can share some of what you give to me with others.

Thank you for realizing the importance of recognition and for choosing us to help you along that path. Here's to you this holiday and I hope it's a safe and happy one! Gobble gobble, don't eat too much.

Shopping on Main St.

Being a small business on main st. we know how the big box shoppers really take something away from the small town atmosphere, but we also know what a little hard work and perseverance does. Together with your help Main St. small businesses make up the fabric of a small town. We create jobs, share stories and make small towns right. Shopping on Main St provides the community backbone that the big box lacks.
We work hard to convince you that, sometimes, there is more to a product than just price. We, as a nation, outsourced our manufacturing to save so many pennies that we lost something that came with those toys you got your kids for Christmas. We've lost the essence of Christmas and gift giving and it keeps getting further and further away with each and every gift card sold.

Main St. needs you, the customer, the townspeople, to realize that you are the only way that we are here. You are the reason we exist and your patronage is greatly appreciated. You are who we thank sitting around the table when we get ready to eat.

With each experience we share with you and each person you tell about it, we are eternally grateful and it is absolutely necessary for without that one transaction and it's ensuing feelings, we would not be around.

So please think of us when you are looking for that perfect something for your loved ones, because we might just have it. While there are only three retail gift stores in town here, we also have some great eating, some awesome community hang outs, one great theater, and our retail shops are unique and awesome. We will share a story with you while helping you find that perfect gift.

Skip the mall and things remembered and remember where that local trophy shop is because we also do engraving, and will engrave on just about anything. We also do personalized gifts right, and have diversified our manufacturing capabilities to bring you just the right gift or decoration.

So please check out the town this December 1st during our Winterfest and please visit the Lily's Pad gift boutique and coffee cafe, The Copper Partridge, and Bux-Mont Awards for this seasons gift giving needs.

Is it that time already?

No! We are just ahead of the game this year. We are feverishly working in order to prepare our store for the holidays. It seems like we have to be ready earlier than most because of Sellersville annual winterfest event held on the first Tuesday in December. (this year it's december 2)

The community comes out in droves to support this wonderful event as the local businesses and organizations open their doors to welcome in the holidays. With carolers, Santa Claus and a tree lighting ceremony, the Sellersville Winterfest is an event looked forward to by many of Sellersvilles citizens.

My favorite part, aside from Bux-Mont Awards annual Christmas themed fridge magnet giveaway and cookies, is the Sellersville Museums annual tree decorating contest.

Trees are decorated by different members of the community and then everyone votes with their money. Change is collected in a jar placed in front of each tree, and the one with the most money at the end wins a prize. The change is then donated to a needy organization!

Please join us December 2 in welcoming in the start of the holidays! We look foward to seeing you here.

Recognition means a lot of things to a lot of folks. It means a lot to us to. Recognition is the niche Bux-Mont Awards serve, and we think we do a decent job of it. We set out to offer Awards & Engraving services way back when, and that opened up the door to recognition for us. We soon learned as we started offering more recognition services that an opportunity existed.

Recognition means a lot:
Recognition is awards & trophies for a lot of things: fantasy sports, youth sports tournaments, year end youth sports awards, high school sports tournament and more.
Recognition can come in a corporate form: these include sales awards and employee of the month, years of service recognition and more.
Recognition is brand awareness: imprinted apparel for youth sports, imprinted shirts for small business, and imprinted promotional products fall under this category.

For the promotional products needs of our customers we have developed the site gives us the capability to better serve the needs of our promotional products customers. We realize that some awards recognition buyers are promotional products customers as well, but there is a lot of promotional products purchasers who are not, and we developed this site exclusively for them. More info on how can help you with finding the perfect promotional products will follow in upcoming posts!
