Girls Night Out

Basement Bags @ The Lakes

The Lakes, a local wedding/party venue, hosted a "Girls Night Out" for brides & bridesmaids last night. The owner invited local businesses to come 'meet & greet' , set up displays, and take orders. Bonus Daughter #1 (on the right, isn't she beautiful!) worked at The Lakes during college, so she helped me set up and take orders. It was our first 'show' ... I really enjoyed it & appreciate so much that Dana was with me. Hubby helped set up the computer with a slide show, which was a big hit, and he printed the banner. We didn't have much notice (and life has been crazy busy this week!) so I didn't have time to really prepare. Still, our display wasn't too bad. We did get tickled at how many people mentioned that they knew someone that sold 'Thirty-one' or how much they loved their 'Vera' bags....I very graciously told them that 'Basement Bags' were much better quality and that we have many more personalization options, not to mention all the 'love' I give every item. was a fun night and now I must get busy because my desk is covered with orders.
Hope you have something wonderful planned for today!
