You probably attend an event at least once a year. Sometimes events are all about shopping, but more often than not, events are a combination of shopping and education. When attending a show that combines classes and market place, shopping literally becomes dashes between classes. Time is short that your plan includes the necessary pit stop (crossing your fingers for short lines) and visits to my favorite or new vendor spot.
As a vendor, we do our best to bring the right amount of scents and products. We are thrilled when we have the product or scent you are looking for, but sometimes there is a sudden run on your favorite scent or product and the person in front of you just bought the last one. Being left wanting after waiting just stinks!
Wait and want no more because we've created the Easy Peasy Product Reservation. It's so simple and fast, you’ll LOVE the experience!
Go to our web site: www.Bar-Maids.com for directions, and we'll even text you a reminder during the event!
Bijou Basin Ranch is your source for high-quality yarns spun from Tibetan yak, Qiviut, cashmere and other luxury fibers. Our yarns are made in the USA as well as abroad, and many are hand-dyed by notable indie dyers such as Miss Babs, Lattes & Llamas, and Lost City Knits. Our no-rinse, no residue fiber wash called Allure was specially developed to care for high quality fibers. This month, enjoy 15% off your yarn purchase when you enter KNITMORE at checkout at bijoubasinranch.com.
