Introducing Kaboodle’s Advent Calendar

Kaboodle’s Advent Calendar: the Personal S30 from Vitamix

Justin adores (and is hoping to find under his tree) the Personal S30 from Vitamix, the newest, smallest Vitamix that creates three squares a day with six inches of countertop.

The Kids Are All Right

The new Culinary Arts Program is up and running at Lincoln High School in downtown Portland. It’s popular, too, with more students wanting to get in than there’s room for. Students not only learn to cook, they learn about the career possibilities in the various sectors of the food industry. We think it’s a good thing, and that’s why Kaboodle, along with several of our generous donors, helped equip the Lincoln kitchen with the tools of the culinary trades.

A big thank you goes out to KitchenAid, Cuisinart, OXO, Swiss DIamond, RSVP, Fat Daddio’s, Wüsthof-Trident, Harold Import, and Zyliss for contributing their fine products to help get the program going.

Take a look at the program’s great website.

Go here to see the KGW television news story on the program.

Want to help? We’ve set up a gift registry for the things the program still needs. Type “Culinary” into the search window.

Or, you can help fund the program directly.

Some Love For Our Friends at Bergstrom Wines

Some Love For Our Friends at Bergstrom Wines

We at Kaboodle would like to thank the Bergstrom family, first of all for making such fine wines, but also for furnishing the outdoor areas at their beautiful tasting room with furniture from Kaboodle. Go visit the winery in Newberg; think how beautiful it is when the sun shines!

Look What Kelsey Did!

Look What Kelsey Did!

Using a roll of chalkboard table runner paper and a piece of chalk, Kelsey at our NW store created great art for the table. C’mon, you can do it, too!

Thank You, Stephen Colbert!

Thank You, Stephen Colbert!

You’ve heard of how Amazon is using its monopoly position to squeeze Hachette and its authors, including Mr. Colbert? Well, don’t kid yourself; what Amazon is trying to do to books, it wants to do to everything. Whether it’s bowling balls, tennis shoes, or auto parts, Amazon wants to monopolize the sale of everything. Everything. That’s not good for anybody, Except, of course, for Amazon.
