What better way to spend a summer day than to observe National Pineapple Day!
Here at 18th Century Merchant, we certainly couldn't let this day go by without giving a nod to the beautiful fruit that graces our logo. The tales of the pineapple as a symbol of hospitality are numerous. Chef Clyde Serda, writing for Chef's Blade, sums it all up beautifully: "Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests’ enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality."

To celebrate National Pineapple Day, on Tuesday, June 27th we are offering 20% off on all pineapple items. This applies to in-store purchases or phone orders. What a wonderful one-day opporutnity to stock up on entertaining needs, decorative accessories and more!
Some of the many pineapple items you can find at the store are pictured below.
Stop by the store on Tuesday, and then be sure to enjoy some delicious fresh pineapple at home!
