The Stamper's Cove Update - Shop Hop, Upcoming Classes & More!
Hope you are all doing well and enjoyed your weekend! Just wanted to give you an update on the Shop Hop, upcoming classes and share some recent photos!
First, I would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you for your help and support during the Shop Hop! It truly 'takes a village' to make over 600 tags, bag over 1,000 layouts and get the store ready! The Shop Hop was a HUGE success because of all of YOU! We had just shy of 600 'Shop Hoppers' visit The Stamper's Cove! We had so much fun! Here are just a few things that happened along the way:
- A 'Shop Hopper' left her cell phone on the counter in the store. When I finally tracked her down, she was thrilled I had called her daughter versus her husband. She said her husband would have given her all kinds of sh___(grief) and she could get her daughter to keep quiet about it! apparently it's happened before! Really funny!
- Martha from The Stamper's Cove, came into the store telling me she had a problem. She proceeded to empty one of our small teal bags onto the counter, then quickly pulled out her iPad to show me a photo. Out of the bag and onto the counter she poured what was left of her Shop Hop Passport - the photo was of her dog! We've all heard the excuse "my dog ate my homework" - well this time it was "my dog ate my passport!" See photo below! Too cute!
- Everyone loved our layouts and most purchased the second page! Here is a photo of one of the many groups making their pages:
- As I shared in an earlier email - our photo-op was a big hit!
Last but not least here are two photos I love - the first one is of the very first customers of the 2014 Main Street Shop Hop and the second one is of the last customer on Sunday, March 9th at 5 PM! Thanks for your help, Carole!
Thanks again to everyone who volunteered their time to help! I hope you had as much fun as I had - 'cause I'll be calling on you to help again next year - LOL!
