Are you looking for the perfect gift for the person who has “everything?” We all have friends who don’t want any more “stuff” to clutter up their homes, even if our gifts are thoughtful and given with loving intentions. The perfect solution is a gift from Edible Arrangements. It’s healthy, delicious, and after it’s eaten, it disappears without a trace!
Edible Arrangements owners Diana King and Susan Rossignol strive to connect with every customer to make their occasions special. “We know we are an extension of the message a loved one is trying to deliver,” Diana says, “whether it be a birthday, anniversary or just someone wanting to say thank you. We take it seriously and are so grateful we were chosen to be part of their message. Especially if they need to send a get well bouquet to someone in the hospital, or a sympathy bouquet to a family, we will make it special.”
Edible Arrangements has served the Asheville area since 2005, creating unique gifts for many occasions. “Our number one occasion is birthdays, and we have hundreds of different types of arrangements all made with fresh fruit, “Diana says. “Our focal point is our pineapples that we use to create shapes to define the arrangement. We surround this with fresh honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries topped with red seedless grapes. Some of the arrangements we make can be with just pineapples and strawberries and others will include oranges and dipped apple shaped like a donut.”
Other special occasions are holidays, especially Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, and Christmas. “Each holiday we focus our energy on creating special baskets themed to the holiday or events like basketball designs, chocolate Easter bunny pineapples, shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day or snowmen and reindeer during Christmas,” Diana explains. “In the summer, gift creations include fruits like kiwi, watermelon, mangos, and blueberries.”
In addition to amazing edible gift creations, you can also get great fresh fruit smoothies at Edible Arrangements. “This is something a lot of people do not realize we do, and we are working to distinguish ourselves from other smoothie places that use syrupy products,” Diana says. “We have a grab and go section to our store that allows a customer to see our gourmet dipped fruit options and create their own quick pickup boxes of singles, half dozen or even a full dozen of dipped, apples, bananas, strawberries and pineapples.“
Diana says her favorite treats at Edible Arrangements are the smiles she gets from happy customers. “My personal favorite is chocolate dipped apples. We dip Granny Smith apples in chocolate for a delightful tart and sweet combination. A lot of my team will tell you that their favorite is the double dipped bananas that are first dipped in semisweet chocolate and then in white chocolate,” she says.
What makes an Edible Arrangements creation a really great gift? Here’s Diana’s explanation. “We are a fresh take on an old custom of giving flowers,” she says. “We’re a healthy alternative to just chocolate, and we make everything to order every day, so you are guaranteed the freshest fruits that have been cut and put into amazing designs by our well trained fruit experts. It’s this attention to detail and dedication to quality that makes someone’s day a little sweeter when they receive one of our designs.”
Diana says she feels great satisfaction in making people happy with Edible Arrangements. “We never knew how big this would get once we gained name recognition. It’s such a great feeling when we are asked what we do, and are met with OH MY GOSH, I love you guys or I received one of your arrangements and it was so amazing!”
Most of all Diana says she feels part of the bigger picture through her involvement with her business. “I love making a contribution to our community from creating jobs that people can take pride in the many nonprofits we have helped over the years, and to the smiles on the little kids’ faces when they open the door and see us standing there with a delivery. I take pride in mentoring young people who have been part of our team and remain close to lots of team members who have moved on,” Diana says. “I consider it a privilege to assist people by sharing the wealth of knowledge I have gained not just from this business but the corporate world I came from.”

Pets and Carpet – can they live together? Yes, but it takes some effort.
Do you have a dog or cat – or several? We do, too! We love them dearly, but they can be really rough on carpet. Day in and day out, we see just how rough at homes all around Asheville. Pets can bring in an amazing amount of dirt and hair. Here are some ideas from one pet lover to another about how to keep it under control.
Wipe Those Feet!
You can prevent pets from putting dirt on your carpet by. Keep a towel close to the door, especially on rainy days, and wipe their paws off when they come inside. It may take a few times for them (and your kids) to get used to the idea, but it will make a big difference. Once they know it’s part of the routine, it gets easy.
Add an Area Rug to the Room
Does your pet have a favorite area in the room? Consider putting an area rug there – you can find nice looking but inexpensive ones pretty easily, and train your pets to spend most of their time on the area rug and not the carpet.
Clean urine and feces quickly
If your pet makes deposits on your carpet, remove solid matter and blot up the liquid quickly with paper towels. Mix white vinegar and water half and half, and dampen the affected area with it
thoroughly, then blot up with paper towel. You can then use your Citrus Spotter spray bottle we leave with you to clean any remaining dirt and neutralize odor.
It’s amazing how much pet hair we pull out of carpet every day when we are cleaning. The easiest way to keep it out of your carpet is to get it off your pet fist. Most pets love a good brushing, and if you have kids it’s a great task for them to do. They might just come to love making the family pets happy! Have your pets professionally groomed regularly if you can – but know that you can do a lot. 5 minutes of brushing a day will make an amazing difference.
Change the entryways to hard surface flooring
Consider installing hard floor near the pet entryways and doorways. There are many choices ranging from tile to laminate to vinyl that you can combine with a washable entry rug to prevent pets tracking dirt and grass into the carpet in the house.
Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum!!
Vacuuming regularly is the best thing you can do. If you can stay ahead of dirt and hair from building up in the carpet. You may have to vacuum your carpet several times a week. You will also need to vacuum your furniture. Any dirt that is on the furniture can easily end up on the carpet.
Confine Them to One Place
If you have a pet that keeps messing up your carpet, then you may want to consider putting them in a room that does not have carpet. You do not necessarily have to keep your pet in this area all of the time. You can just keep them there when you are not home or at night.
What Your Pet Eats Matters
Check out our friends at Woof Gang Bakery in Biltmore Park Town Square for great tasting, responsibly made pet foods. You don’t feed yourself or your kids junk food – check ingredients labels to see what your feeding your pets. Common pet foods are mostly made of corn meal and other ingredients that are not natural diet elements for dogs and cats.
Keep Those Nails Trimmed
Paws and claws damage carpet. Period. Get some trimmers and learn how to use them or have a professional groomer trim them regularly.
Have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly
The aforementioned tips will help, but depending on how well you can follow them, and how many pets you have, you will need to have your carpet professionally cleaned two or three times per year. Call CitruSolution of Asheville for the most effective, safest, natural carpet cleaning available.
Craft Centric has been voted the Best Beer Bar in North Carolina for the second year in a row! They are celebrating this designation with Customer Appreciation Day today. Congratulations to Matt and all the rest of the great folks there.

Are you a senior whose retirement years aren’t what you had envisioned? Are you approaching your retirement years with worry and uncertainty? Are you a younger, working American who wants more control over your own financial destiny? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to call Ron McLean, the Dream Roper.
In an age of too much gloom and doom, the Dream Roper helps to shine a light on a brighter path ahead. “I am all about restoring hope and vision, providing a roadmap to shed the limits of your circumstances and move boldly towards your God-given dreams,” Ron said. “You may agree with me that yes, without a doubt, you were created not just to exist, but to experience a fruitful life, a higher mission.”
Ron said he draws inspiration and direction from Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
This mission for the Dream Roper is to help mature Americans get back on track to their dreams of a healthy and prosperous lifestyle, and to help younger families take control of their finances and their lives. “There are seniors who have discovered that their dream retirement has become a nightmare,” Ron said. “It doesn’t have to be that way. Having been fired from my corporate job at the age of 65, I am now living a better lifestyle than ever before. I’m positioned to help others take advantage of their independence and freedom. What my clients need most is a willingness to open their minds to innovative solutions and a real desire to improve their lifestyles.”
Among these solutions are some simple yet powerful steps to put money back into the pockets of working families. “We’re helping families add $200 to $800 back into their monthly paychecks with just a few tweaks to their W-4s and by dramatically improving their credit scores without the need to hire expensive credit repair agencies,” Ron said.
Danielle K., one of the Dream Roper’s clients, called working with Ron an amazing opportunity. “My credit score went up 100+ points within the first month, and I was able to income shift and generate more take-home cash flow by correcting my husband’s W-4. Now we’re bringing home an additional $180 each pay period,” she said.
Ron breaks down his services in these ways:
Ron’s own story set him up to become the Dream Roper. “I was fired at 65 without the finances or desire for early retirement,” he said. “Since then, I have earned greater income and lived a superior lifestyle, while positioning myself for greater health. I feel energized in sharing what I’ve learned with others who find themselves in the same boat. I have learned how American families can quickly improve their financial situation, rather than being dragged down into debt. Not sharing these methods would be selfish on my part.”
Ron believes circumstances do not define you. “I feel that so many people have been beaten up by their circumstances that they have given up on their dreams. Don’t let circumstances govern your life. I am here to bring hope and a way out of the darkness, empowering you to be the victor, and not the victim. You were created for greatness and you can rise above your circumstances. Take action today for a better tomorrow.”
So if you want to take charge of your life today for a better tomorrow, call the Dream Roper today to explore your many possibilities. It’s an open road – the choice is yours!

The world of vitamins and nutritional supplements can be a jungle. So many choices and conflicting claims can leave you confused. That’s why we all need a trusted source of great advice. Look no further than New Sun Products in Hendersonville. It’s your one-stop shop for vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and proprietary herbal blends formulated by a Master Herbalist and Naturopathic Doctor.
Owner Cecelia (Ceil) Salvadori loves to set customers on their road to natural health. “At New Sun we believe that the body can heal itself when given the proper environment,” Ceil said. “An environment free from chemicals, toxins, provided with pure water, enriched through education and physical exercise and uplifted by strong spiritual beliefs. The holistic philosophy at New Sun is: body, mind and spirit that work together for the benefit of the whole. “
Established in 1987, New Sun has been helping customers find natural health solutions for 31 years. Co-founder, Jim Salvadori, was a Master Herbalist and N.D. who wanted to help people to better health with exceptional natural supplements. He had experienced major health issues and the holistic path was his ticket to better health. “Our products are natural, they are certified to be free of harmful pesticides and fungicides,” Ceil said. “We strive to offer products that are as close to nature as possible.”
Ceil is more than just the storeowner – she’s a customer. Asked about her favorite product, she said it’s difficult to choose. “That’s hard, since we have well over 100 products” Ceil said. “I take a number of them every day and have for years. I guess if I had to choose one it would be Life Source. It is our number one selling product – the ultimate green drink. It also comes in capsule form. It is formulated to help alkalize the body, it aids with boosting the immune system, it’s a high source of protein derived from spirulina, and it is also a rich source of calcium, again plant based. For me personally, I feel a difference in my energy levels and just have a feeling of balance when I make it part of my daily protocol.”
In addition to great products, New Sun gives personalized guidance on customers’ supplement needs. “New Sun is one of 15 natural products providers that has an FDA approved tool (Zyto Compass) that can provide a personalized report on your body's supplement needs,” Ceil said. “We also offer classes from time to time that are directed toward educating people about ways to improve their health and well-being through natural means. That includes diet.”
Making their way up the ranks of all-time customer favorites are the new Hemp (CBD) products. “They have soared to the number 20 spot in our bestselling product list,” Ceil said. “Again, New Sun believes that our products have to be as close to how they were created in nature as possible. Our CBD Oil is 100% organic hemp, US grown, no flavor additives, no other oils used to cut the efficiency of the hemp.“
New Sun caters to a clientele that wants the best for their health. “Our customers are those who are aware that not all supplements are created equal,” Ceil said. “They understand that in order to experience better health, in many cases, it is necessary for a life style change. Most of our customers want to be the stewards of their own bodies and continue to learn about all that is available in the holistic realm. The staff at New Sun loves working with all of our customers, those who have been with us since 1986 and those who come to us for the first time. Their improved health is our mission.”
Spending as much time as Ceil has in the shop and working daily with customers, she has seen some remarkable things. Ceil describes a few. “One that happened recently, a customer came into the shop and was experiencing an anxiety attack. With the use of an essential oil she was able to regain calm and walked out recovered. “
“Another was years ago but stays in my mind always,” Ceil said. “A well known urologist came into our shop, wanting to know about one of our prostate products. This came as a surprise to us since in many cases mainstream medicine doesn't place much value on supplements. He then explained that several of his patients were taking our products, he noticed real improvement, and he then asked if he could sell the product at his office! That product was sold from his office for over 15 years until he retired. Last but not least, is that our customers become like our family, and they can feel that when they enter our doors.”
If you haven’t experienced New Sun yet, you owe it to your health to stop on in or visit their website. Ceil and her staff are dedicated to your health and well-being. “We are here to help you achieve optimal health in any way we can,” Ceil said. “Our mission is to help people to a better way of life through natural means, using high quality ingredients in our products, giving personalized attention to each customer, and pricing our products so that all can afford them.”
