Extraordinary things start small: Etsy trunk show
Monday, December 1, 2014
December 1st.. gosh, can you believe it's the start of the last month of 2014?! What a wacky and wonderful year it's been and I can't wait for all the festiveness that's happening this month :) Our Christmas movie marathon has been in full swing and I can't wait to get this place decorated!
We had a whirlwind of a weekend over here with Thanksgiving celebrations, visitors from out of town, prepping for the trunk show, showing at the trunk show all day Saturday and then our gal hit the 18 month mark yesterday! WHEW.
We headed out to St. Michaels early Saturday morning to get all set up at the hosting shop, Paper Rock Scissors. St. Michaels is a small town on the Chesapeake Bay that offers many family-owned restaurants, adorable boutiques and the most picturesque Main Street you've ever seen during the holidays. It was the perfect place to celebrate Small Business Saturday!
Paper Rock Scissors is an adorable shop that displays and sells artist's work from all over the country, many of whom are local to the area. It's the kind of place you can be at for hours and still find something you didn't see before. It's eclectic, unique and filled with homey character. Literally, the perfect spot to find gifts for loved ones and a little something special for yourself :)
There were some other awesome Etsy shops showcasing with us for the occasion. Joanna from Twisted Whimsy Designs (who is offering 25% off today!) and Jaclyn from Jewels by JLang both had their beautiful, handmade jewelry on display. It was so inspiring getting to meet other small business owners and women who are out there killing it!
If you're ever in the St. Michaels area I definitely recommend stopping by Paper Rock Scissors for a lovely shopping experience. You'll be able to find some Forever Fireflying Christmas cards on display for the rest of the holiday season :) We're so excited to be available in our first boutique, especially one as special as PRS!
Side note: Today is the last day you can get 40% off everything in the shop!! Don't forget to peep those HAWT deals ;)
After a rewarding but long ass day, we spent yesterday snuggling, watching the Grinch and some good ole Sunday football. This week I'm hoping to get all our decorations up and get our Christmas shopping done! We'll be heading out to Montana before we know it so it's time to get CRAKIN'!!!
I hope you all aren't suffering too much on this Monday back after the holiday weekend. Pour yourself some
spiked hot chocolate, put on some merry tunes and 5pm will be here before ya know it.
