Lisa Pardenek: I got engaged on June 19; he brought me to a little café where it or form looking the Delaware River I'm pretty close to where we went to school, and where we met for the first time, and little did I know that he would actually gone there the next day before drop and off a dozen red roses. And let all the waiting stuff in on the proposal, and when we got there that day they had a table waiting for us, and right over looking the water and went through home meal and I really didn't suspect a much and then the waiter brought over the red roses, put them on the table and he got down on one knee proposed in front of the whole restaurant, every one applauded and that was wonderful.
Registering I think is important because you know that ways if people want to start getting the presents, which they already have I have already gotten you know some little nick nacky types of things that I don't really preferred. So I would rather register and have my mom just kind of tell them you know or friend that, that's what I'm registered may be you would like to get her something from there instead so.
I came here with one of my closest friends and then her wedding party, and she is mine, we both have a binders that we share with each other with all are different pictures and dresses, its fun that's nice. Sharing the experiences with some one I you know so close with.
Patricia Ramarais: Hi I'm Patricia.
Lisa Pardenek: Hi Patricia I'm Lisa
Patricia: Lisa hi.
Patricia Ramarais: Okay congratulations when is your big day.
Lisa Pardenek: July 9, next year,
Patricia: Are you excited?
Lisa Pardenek: yes, very excited
Patricia: Well wait till you start working around.
Lisa Pardenek: Yeah
Patricia: Then you are really going to be excited. Let me show you this is our best registry guide. So it gives you ideas on what to register for, how many to register for, you know and I really going to use this, am I may not, this is a great store for your every day pieces. Don't be afraid to register for a lots of as I mention before people do get you gifts for just knowing that you are engaged, so the longer your list is whether its here or you know at pottery, you know, Tipneys. That's fine, because you are giving them more of an option of things they get for you more options, for them, they'll have because is frustrating to for your friends and family when they get closer, and are they have to buy for you and there is nothing left, and then it will be frustrating for you when you get things you are like what is this, you know, so it's best to go out there and make your wish list. At like at 7 o clock and you are doing your wish list it doesn't matter how many places and how long your list is at each place it's going to be so much better for you when you get closer to the wedding date, because then you wont have to worry. So this scanner is very easy to use, this is the forward button, press the two buttons on this side you put it towards the item you like and you put it against the bar code, you did that, easier so we walk over to the dinner item, come let's move. So you mentioned that you've registered for the dinnerware.
Lisa Pardenek: yes
Patricia: And in a different store.
Lisa Pardenek: Right.
Patricia: Okay so in which food storage that was in.
Lisa Pardenek: That was Macias.
Patricia: So isn't that more of your formal ware.
Lisa Pardenek: That's my formal ware.
Patricia: Okay, so this is also a good store for every day pieces, there is sometimes, you got your formal ware. You are kind you are worried about the dish washer you know and of the hand washer, because as you want to keep it long lasting, these choices are great for that porcelain we have stoneware so when you are ready to pick the dinner ware as you would like, you can come back to the sign you know show that it comes in plate settings and also comes in 20 piece sets. Some times people are confused to which one to do under registering, I often say it would per plate setting because you don't give people option that quite option. Some times people are not pick up in saucer people but I guess they want to do a dinner plate a salad a cereal bowl and a mug.
Lisa Pardenek: Okay
Patricia: So that
Lisa Pardenek: Its definitely a great opportunity to get every day necessity is that we need but just or spending money on more important things right now, its nice to have other people spend the money on us.
Patricia: So we'll walk over to the stemware, this is a ware you get to choose your red wine, white wine your goblets and this is where you might want to go for more than 12, because of breakage sometimes you know a glass breaking you have some extras, even some glasses that have some edging in it. This is very beautiful, and it feel's really nice and comfortable, these are great engagement presents.
Lisa Pardenek: They are very pretty, I like that counter actually it's very pretty.
Lisa Pardenek: I probably like to put some more entertaining types of items on there, like plates and you know serving dishes and that type of thing.
Patricia: We have our linens right what do you know what your color is.
Lisa Pardenek: We have a lot of blues and I have that really looked around too much in the furniture and mirrors but I definitely would like to add to those in blankets and things to kind of accentuate you know the aspects of the house. Yeah, are these they are not concerned to be clean that.
Patricia: You can definitely or you could do this one with it and behind us you now just going to have to bring your flatware out the week again. So we've got a ware full.
Lisa Pardenek: That would be nice.
Patricia: A wall full of beautiful ranges to choose from that's merely a gift that gift people often gifts. So you might as well, again choose one that you too like or a beautiful we have some even taller ones that are, hope that are in the front of the store, that you could may be put bamboos sticks and dried flowers.
Lisa Pardenek: It's pretty.
Patricia: Very pretty, so this is our flat ware table there are so many place that associates with, and its always okay to have more than one plate setting, because you cough then do we loose our spoons, and things like that, so its not something that you should worry that you have too many of its, always okay to have more flatware.
Lisa Pardenek: Yeah probably for flatware, the flatware more.
Patricia: There you go then you wanted do you know in front a each 10 of a particular flatware that you have. So here we are in your favorite section, I love cook ware section. As I mentioned before, this is your top natural quality cook ware and if you like to cook you should have the bags. So this is a sort of great gift to have, may be a family member would love to give you, so go for it, these are all the pieces that she get, and you also get individual, and you know you its going to add into twelve piece, besides what comes in this set.
Lisa Pardenek: Is there an advantage to going in the set or doing each piece separately.
Patricia: I always suggest that you go for the set and then just add the piece that which you think you would use, because you don't always use everything, but the set is very basic, there is not a piece in that you can really use for something. Where you download all of your information, your personal information, and also that adds into your registry code, such a way you are creating your registry fill go ahead its touch screen. And then I'll ask you to put your scanner right here you just put it direct there, then it will go, and its going to take in all the information that you've registered for and then you do next and you just keep answering the questions. And that's pretty much check this mentioned that everything is correct, and you hit submit and you are in our registered.
Lisa Pardenek: Al right from here I guess I'm going to home tonight and look online and checkout what I've look at and may be add some other things, and delete something's that may be I cant say didn't like so much that I picked, but it's good that I have that option in opportunity when I leave just night it's a kind of you know, look through it again.
Patricia: That's it you are all registered congratulations.
Lisa Pardenek: Thank you so much.
Patricia: You are so welcome this is your imaginations in letter and also all of your personal information that you entered in and the item which you registered for, as I mentioned before you can go home add to it, come back to the store, then you'll have the options to edit your registry and add some more to it. So would that you enjoy that you have fun.
Lisa Pardenek: Thank you so much for helping us, planning to go back and add more stuff.
Patricia: So tell him about it help him back with you. Okay thank you so much come again you guys can make appointments so you can come in and just get a scanner and go have fun. Okay have good night.
