"Surely as cometh the Winter, I know there are Spring violets under the snow." - R.H. Newell

February is here and It's still cold and still snowy.  What a winter we have had!  But the days are getting longer and some mornings you can here little birds chirping (while we are grumbling and shoveling the latest snowfall). 

The shortest month of the year is also famous for Valentine's Day.  That special holiday for people to express their love for each other with cards, chocolates, flowers and special gifts.  Many consider Valentine's Day very commercialized or just another part of pop-culture.  I think it should be another opportunity to celebrate the love you have for a sweetheart, a friend or the people who are important to you.

Another sign that spring is around the corner are the new season's clothes and accessories arriving at Raffinee .  The 2014 spring collections are a sure way to lift us off our mid-winter blues.  There is so much to look forward to when the snow melts!  Below are a few glimpses of our new arrivals.  Come in and enjoy!
