Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our first sale such a huge success! We were so excited to have a line of people waiting to get in a half an hour before we opened the doors - even as the rain started to fall! I am including the few pictures that I took on Saturday after the accessories were pretty picked over. I will share more as they trickle in.
I so appreciate Whitney Asay of Petuniaz, Sue Hooley of Deep Creek Soap and Tom Heald of Wyoming Plant Company for taking a chance on me. I had a vision of what the first sale would be but Whitney, Sue and Tom were taking a leap of faith that I could really create it. Their contributions added the pizazz and depth we were looking for.
Whitney's jewelry was spectacular!
We all felt lucky to model her unique pieces throughout the weekend and look forward to her many new creations since she sold nearly every piece she brought.
Sue's soaps and lotions provided wonderful color and aroma as well as a nice gifts and a way for customers to treat themselves and their skin.
Tom's plants were the icing on the cake. They added life and depth to the sale - not the mention the fantastic scent of lilac from the beautiful lilac tree in corner!
Thanks to Cheri, Amanda and my mom for sharing their creativity.
But most of all....thank you to all our customers who took time out of your busy weekend, passed the word to your friends and endured the rain. Your support made our first sale a success and we appreciate it so much.
Thanks to Pheobe - our Japanese Chin who provided some comic relief as we finished up Sunday afternoon!
We are already gearing up for our November sale! Mark you calendars for November 10, 11 and 12.
See you then!
