Finch's Boutique - All Wrapped up!

  Another year of Finch's Holiday Time Boutique! Whew! We had SUCH a great turn out - thanks to everyone who attended, purchased lovely items, and to those who MADE those lovely items. What a success!
  Over all, we had over 230 visitors  - 65 in the first hour! - and reached a new record of over $7k. I am also pleased to say that we raised over $500.00 towards American Cancer Society through out artist participant donations! Hooray!
  Here's a peek at what you saw at the boutique/what you miss out on!

Boutique Day 1 = SUCCESS!

Wow! We had a super busy day of the boutique with over 170 visitors! (65 within the first hour!) The cars started lining up at about 10:45am...
...and our very first shoppers, came out to meet us as soon as Jason "Dr Von Berke" opened the door to greet them with our fun Door-Buster-Give-Aways to the first lucky five.

*Highlight: notice the yellow ribbon in the lower right of this photo? Jason lead a 'Ribbon Cutting Ceremony' to open the boutique! So perfect!

From the time we opened at 11am, we had no fewer than 12 visitors shopping our sale until about 4:30pm.

The snow that began around 2:30ish or so wasn't slowing people down :) And hopefully it doesn't prevents shoppers from visiting us Sunday!

Watch for photos of the Boutique to be posted very soon!!
If we didn't see you yesterday, come on by today!! We won't be back until next year!!
