And the Winners Are…

Hello Everyone,

Today is the (sniff sniff) final day of our epic 28 Days of Giving Away Fantastic Handmade Canadian Goodies and it was an unbelievable amount of good old fashioned F.U.N!

We hope each of you had fun too: we ended up with 58 winners (yay! Check out our blog to see if you won anything because sometimes our emails can end up in your spam folder!), a lot of lovely comments about our goodies and our designers, and all-around great energy and enthusiasm around the love of handmade!

Since it was such a good time, we’re going to do some more! A few times a month we’ll be giving away something from the shop – we think it’s a great way to introduce you to new collections and designers plus it’s just so much fun helping customers shop when we are paying! (-:

Tomorrow is the beginning of March and many of you likely know what that means: our famed SPRING TRUNK SALE is right around the corner!  It’s a great way to load up on handmade goodies from previous seasons as well as score yourself a sample that no one else will have!  This year it will be held March 28th – April 1st (Easter weekend)…so save the date! We hope to see each of you there!

Thanks for playing with us! (-:

Workshop’s Spring Trunk Sale: March 28-April 1st, 2013!

As usual, our very organized customers have been calling and asking us for the date of our SPRING TRUNK SALE so here it is: March 28-April 1st (Easter weekend)! The big opening party will be on Thursday March 28th at 6pm where there is sure to be the best of deals, some fun goodies for munchin’, and me at the change rooms acting as the evening drill sergeant…I know you ladies love it!

The fun doesn’t end there though, because we’ve decided to officially hold the sale over for the whole weekend – this is for those of you who give us those sad puppy faces when you can’t make it the night of the event.  And because the sale is going to go on for 5 days, we have even more designers involved and even more great canadian made stuff at fantastic prices!  But don’t forget that after Monday at 6pm, everything magically turns in to a pumpkin (goes back to the designers), so don’t miss it!

For those of you who are new to the cult of the trunk sale, here are the basics: once in the Spring and once in the Fall Workshop invites a few of their favourite designers to participate in our trunk sale: they ship us tons and tons of great clothes, accessories and jewelry which are from past seasons collections, slightly damaged items, weird sizes (the xs people clean up at this event!), samples, etc! Our designers get to clean out their studio spaces and our customers get to pad their closets!  the deals are great – up to 70% off!

More details and sneak peeks can be found on our facebook page!

Put it in your calendar and don’t forget to join us!

Day 28: WIN this Dolman Top!

At the shops, we really heart young start up designers like Michelle Vandentillart. She has so much drive and energy, it’s like a whirlwind when she pops by the shop…on a few occassions she’s been so fast that I have totally missed her, even though I just nipped downstairs to check on some stock.  I call her my Snuffleupagus. (-:

Today, on the last day of our wild and wonderful 28 Days of Handmade Giveaways, you can win one of her blousey and beautiful dolman tops in a size of your choice (s/m or m/l)!

Thanks for playing with us, it has been so much fun!  And stay tuned…cause this contest won’t be our last! (-:
