A long time ago the hospital tuck shop was a well known place for bedside get well gifts and a used book or two for those in the hospital. You could always find something to express well wishes or the perfect thing to thank a nurse, doctor or caregiver for providing great care.
The tuck shop was always there to help with whatever you might need.I have been just as guilty as other residents in Carleton Place, not even bothering to go see what was new in our local tuck shop in the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital. Well my lovelies– these gals not only still carry candy and books– they have some great fashion pieces and neat things in there
The notion that elephants bring good luck has a long history. Good Luck Elephant. The elephant is a symbol of strength, power, stability and wisdom. There is common superstition that an elephant carving or picture should always face the door if you want to bring good luck into the house. It also protects the home when facing the entrance making sure only good fortune passes through. White elephants are rare and considered sacred. In Thailand white elephants belong to the king. Give someone a gift of good luck for the Holiday season.
