WHEW! Yesterday was a CRAZY day at the shop! I was totally blown away by all the 'local' shoppers who were not going anywhere near a big bog store! I cant thank everyone enough for making yesterday a truly remarkable day for our small shop! We had so much fun - champagne, hot cider and yummy treats for everyone - everyone was in such a good mood and the weather was SPECTACULAR! YIPPEE!!!!!!!
The true ROCK STARS of the day, however, was Betsy and the staff at Betsy and Iya at 24th & NW Thurman, who really put their all into organizing the "LITTLE BOXES" local shopping event, which was truly the hit of the day! We had so many shoppers come in with their receipts from other stores and their neighborhood shopping maps - it was a true success! So MANY MANY thanks to Betsy and Iya for organizing the whole thing - a truly remarkable feat! Perhaps they will take it on again next year????? Hint, hint!!!!!
And then, in the evening we had Tannenbaum Madness on Alberta Street - all the shops were open late and it was sooo festive! 30 stores had their trees lit and a good time was had by all! Thanks so much to Sara at Alberta Main Street for all the work on that project!
Allrighty the, it is on to Small Business Saturday! Thanks American Express!!!!!
Have a great weekend - and here's to the holidays! CHEERS!!!!!!
