Boutique#2: The 6th Annual Holiday Boutique, Lighthouse Coastal Community Church

Boutique #2 was cute and quaint, but unfortunately a not-so lovely day for rain. Whenever the rain comes, it seems like shoppers stay in doors and no one wants to bother with the hustle and bustle of driving around.

Confession #1: My expectations were too high because of the success from the first boutique, however it was still nice to see smiling faces, meet new vendors and visit with people.

Patty did an amazing job and was so sweet and supportive of all the vendors.

I always enjoy supporting local schools, especially in the area where I grew up...

I have decided to re-open the lil' cupcake since I handed out several cards, not all items are available, but some are up and ready for purchase. After the last boutique on December 2nd and 3rd I will be having a HUGE sale so stay tuned for the sale update and coupon code.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Boutique #1: Sip and Shop Snowflake Boutique

Well I just finished up Boutique #1: The Sip and Shop Snowflake Boutique

A HUGE thank you to the MOMS club of Huntington Beach for putting on such an amazing event. I'll be honest, after last years 2 boutiques that I had the opportunity to attend and vendor at, I swore I would never do another boutique. I got asked by several different local schools, stores, organizations,etc... this year and had to ponder over it for a bit. I decided to bit the bullet and give it another go around and put last years disasters behind me...

I'm SO GLAD I did! I've learned that not all bad experiences pave the path for future disasters. I had a great time. This boutique was the shortest I've done so far, about 2 1/2 hours, but was the most profitable and rewarding.

The things I LOVED and LEARNED:

- Everyone I met was so sweet, kind-hearted and wonderfull

- The organization itself was for a great cause and they made sure you had everything you needed and then some

- I met some fabulous ladies who taught me little things that I never knew could make such a huge difference in how you run your small business

- I learned about SQUARE, the most amazing app for my IPHONE to accept credit cards

- I learned that I have some pretty amazing people in my life, not just co-workers, but dear friends who didn't have to come, help or show support, but did and we had a ball together

Thank you

Ginny, Sally-Boo and Chi Chi- Boo
I couldn't have done it without you girls!

- I handed out lots of cards and loved hearing all the compliments of all the items I take pride in making by hand

I could go on an on, but this boutique just made it worth all the while...

Enjoy some pictures below
 It's so NOT easy squeezing all my product into a 6 foot table, but manageable...

Lots of goodies from both stores

My favorite new item
My Pink Vintage Suitcase
filled with lil' leggies (Leg Warmers)

Stay Tuned for Boutique #2...
