Mrs. Ed’s Seasoned Salt

April 21, 2010 at 5:36 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

As you may know, Our Mom has been making Mrs. Ed’s Seasoned Salt for 20 plus year and in the past few years our Mom and Dad have been making it and donating the price of every bottle sold to the American Cancer Society. This means that they pay for the supplies, bottles, labels, etc… and your money to buy the salt goes directly to the American Cancer Society. Shipping charges are paid by the customer. The only store that sells Mrs. Ed’s is Bloom Coffee & Floral (love ya Karlene). Before Christmas, our Mom and Dad were featured on TV with On the Road Again with Jason Davis. It was a great story and generated ALOT of sales of Mrs. Ed’s. Here is the story!
