Happy Monday! I'm recovering from a weekend of fun times. Friday was our Grand Re-opening party (many thanks to all you Portlanders that showed up!). We had a mention in one of the weekly papers and there was a great turn out. I drank hot spiked cider and helped some people get started on their holiday shopping.
The most exciting part was seeing our little fashion cart pod finally come to life. Last week we spent a ton of time putting up our new awning, laying astro turf and hanging lights. Now we're officially ready for the holiday season!
Erin (Lodekka's owner) and I spent the rest of the weekend blasting holiday music from our courtyard, finding some great holiday dresses new homes and brainstorming fun new events we want to introduce in the new year.
This week I'm busy getting ready to tow the shop into the convention center for Crafty Wonderland. I can't believe it's this weekend! I have a bunch of new handmade goodies we'll be putting out especially for this event. I'll share a sneak peek of those later this week.
I hope your holiday season is off to a great start. Have you had an eggnog latte yet? Those are one of my favorite holiday traditions!
