The Flower Mine & Gift Shop, 410 W. Victory Way, is hosting a sale to clear out its inventory of gift items. Nearly all gift items are discounted between 50- and 75-percent off original price.

The Rip-Snortin', Rootin'-Tootin', Pig-Squealing Sale, which began at the beginning of the month, was originally intended to end today. Owner Shirley Balleck said she will likely continue the offer as long as she has items in stock.

"We'll probably be doing it until we have to bring some new stuff in," she said.

As part of the sale's theme, and in keeping with the presence of the Moffat County Fair this month, the center of the shop features an array of ceramic piggy banks.

However, the porcelain porcines are only part of the sales selection, which includes water fountains, stuffed animals, dolls, candleholders, cards, suncatchers, stationery, magnets and more odds and ends.

"We've got a little bit of everything here," Balleck said. "I've had sales like this before, but not a lot of people know that we have gift stuff, too."

Recently, The Flower Mine began selling wooden wreaths for customers to make their own arrangements. Balleck said she is adding items to the sale every day, with the only exception being the store's flowers.

Balleck said she needs to keep the flower prices to offset shipping costs. Plus, summer is a slow time for the industry.

"In the winter, nobody has them in their yard, so they can't just pick some and give them to friends," she said. "In the summer, everybody has their own garden."

Business hours for The Flower Mine & Gift Shop are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. On Sundays, the store is only available for deliveries.

Store offers movies, music in Spanish

Whether you're Hispanic or just have an appreciation for the Spanish language, the Centennial Mall has a vendor for you.

Video Murillo, 1111 W. Victory Way, Suite 130, features a considerable selection of Spanish-language DVDs and CDs.

Owner Arturo Murillo said he wanted to offer the Spanish-speaking community of Craig a place that sold entertainment specifically reflecting their culture.

But, both English and Spanish speakers are welcome to check out the store's counters, filled with jewelry and belts possessing a south-of-the-border style.

"I thought it'd be neat to sell some Mexican stuff here," Murillo said.

The store also sells Western wear for men and women, including cowboy boots, hats, and Wrangler pants and shirts for everyday wear, with high heels, perfume and other more formal items for women.

Murillo also sells party supplies and offers services such as money transfers, copies and faxes.

"We've been here for three weeks," Murillo said. "I've put up some fliers, but it's been pretty slow because I don't think people know we're here yet."
