I learned a new word this past weekend: lagniappe! Do you know this word? I liked the sound of it even before I looked up the definition. Here is what the dictionary says about lagniappe, which is pronounced lan’ yep.
1. a small gift, especially one given to a customer who makes a purchase
2. something given or obtained as a gratuity or bonus
Now, to use my new word in a sentence: Tomorrow at the Wednesday Farmers Market at the Chetco Grange Community Center, I will be offering Lemongrass Lotion Bar samples as a lagniappe! Please come and check out this fine market, make a purchase from River Bar Soaps, and receive your Lemongrass Lotion Bar lagniappe. There, I did it! Try this word on for size; it’s a fun one to use!
I am a lover of God and of nature. I am a blessed wife and a mom of marvelous adult children. I am Grandma Juju. I am a musician, a friend, a knitter and soapmaker, a listener, a walker and a finder of beach agates.
