It's silly to say these kitchen towels will make dish drying more fun, but we're saying it anyway.
Men like to toss a kitchen towel over their shoulder. We're not sure, but it might be good luck, like tossing salt or getting the big piece of the wishbone. Your host will love you for bringing him this towel for his shoulder. We found these beefy, soft, flour sack kitchen towels at Cuttings in Sewickley Village. They come in sets of two, and you can choose from Christmas themes like Santas and reindeer, or non-holiday patterns like forks and spoons. We bought some of these last summer and took them to a hostess far south of the equator. She said "Que linda!", which means "How pretty!" in Spanish, and "Your turn to dry" in Portuguese. Not really. The set of two towels sells for $19.95.

Proprietors of Downtown Sewickley businesses are feeling positive about the upcoming shopping season.
While crowds of shoppers are sure to head out to big retailers for Black Friday sales, Sewickley store owners say they are feeling enthusiastic as they head into the holiday shopping season. Black Friday is known to attract shoppers who flock to big box and chain stores, but there is also the second Small Business Saturday, which originated last year to focus attention on the little guy and regain a portion of shoppers who support local business. Yarns Unlimited on Beaver Street plans to offer specials for both, and Cathy Susko, manager, said the store—open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday—has been receiving lots of feedback from customers about the upcoming sales. “We find that a lot of people who come into the store are local …
