Have you ever wanted to post a time sensitive announcement or several notices before the next month’s Blind Post classified news edition?

Now you can. If you have ads or announcements that are time sensitive, or just have several items, then you can include them in a special Blind Post Extra
Extra edition. The word count costs are the same as the monthly news, but not free notices. This works best when you might have more than one item for
sale, notice for an event, or a special class or training that is of interest to the blind and low vision community.

Season's greetings!

Here we are, in the midst of a tumultuous period in what has been a miserable year. As we prepare to celebrate the holidays, we may have to dig a little
deeper to find a reason to rejoice. To all of you who have suffered a difficult 2020, my heart is with you.
As owner of Elegant Insights, my job for the next several weeks is to help make your life a little easier by assisting you with your holiday shopping.
Thanks to the pandemic, many of us will not travel to be with loved ones this year, so most holiday gifts will be purchased online. This will create an
enormous burden on the shipping system. It cannot be emphasized strongly enough that you must complete your gift shopping early for on-time holiday delivery.
But prepare yourself for delivery headaches.
Our collection of braille-embossed jewelry and accessories are packaged in royal purple satin jewelry pouches, and wrapped in purple tissue paper. So,
even if you won't be able to gift wrap your package yourself, your gift will be beautifully presented. Elegant Insights can send your purchases directly
to your friends and loved ones. In the US, we ship flat rate, so whatever can fit into our shipping box, up to 10 items, going to one address, you'll only
pay a single delivery fee.
We have a wide selection of items suitable for everyone on your list. Our newest jewelry collection is perfect for winter, with glittering snowflakes,
pearls, crystals, and sparkling metal accents. Check out our Wintersparkle earrings, the Sparkling Snowfall purse charm, and the brand new, breathtaking
Shimmering Snowflurry necklace, which is long enough to wrap around your neck three times! It's the beauty of winter without the chill! Shop here:

For the stargazer on your list, we have a celestial themed collection featuring all the elements of the cosmos, including iridescent stars, a crescent
moon, spiral nebulae, a ringed planet, and black and white pearl beads. With a necklace, bracelet, purse charm, and earrings, this vignette is out of this
world. See it here:

Did you think I forgot about the guys? We have lots of gender-neutral gifts as well as great sports themed items, military-style dog tags, bookmarks, business
card cases, and even items for a home bar. And of course, almost everything we offer is embossed in braille.
What if your gift recipient doesn't read braille? Elegant Insights now offers engraving! We can customize the size of the text so that even someone with
low vision can read your special message. Have a design in mind? Elegant Insights offers a personal custom design service, so let us help you bring your
jewelry ideas to life.
Finally, if you are a regular Blind Post reader, then you may have heard about a little event called Let's Go Shopping. I've posted about it several times
this year, as Let's Go Shopping is my answer to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, and the need to stay home to stay safe. Let's Go Shopping is
an online shopping experience that can be accessed via Zoom. If you missed the most recent virtual mall crawl, don't worry! The entire event has been recorded,
and it will be replayed over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. As a bonus, several of the business owners are offering discounts, new products, and other
specials as a thank you for listening to, and shopping from, the replay. So, I'll publish a Blind Post Extra notice to remind you, along with links to
the places from which to listen. If you want to be sure you don't miss any announcements about Let's Go Shopping Virtual Events, you can send a blank email

and you'll get an alert right in your email inbox.

To all who have shopped with Elegant Insights this year, thank you. We appreciate your business, and we look forward to serving you this holiday season.
Stay strong, and sparkle on!
Laura Legendary, owner
Elegant Insights Braille Creations
