Dear Friend,

The change in the season brings about shorter days and colder nights, when we stay inside more, bundle up, and begin to think about the holidays. ChinaSprout's new shipments from China continue to roll in, so there is no better time to shop for autumn apparel, festive decorations, and holiday gifts. We have added unique ornaments, calendars, apparel, and accessories that you won't find anywhere else. If you're looking for unique items for Halloween, visit our Halloween page to find lanterns, costumes, goody bag items and more.

Wisdom of the Week

"Young people have great potential for achievements. Who can say that they will not be our equals in the future? - from Quotations From Confucius

The generation gap causes a lot of misunderstandings. Just because the younger generation approaches life differently does not mean that it is wrong. We should be patient and supportive of our youth, rather than dismissive. They may not only equal us in the future, they will likely exceed our abilities.
