We’ve had a busy second half of the year at the Black Drop! While John and Stephanie adapted to life with TWO small children, our staff solidified and went through some big changes, and the ownership team went through another shift. We have much to tell you in the upcoming days as 2014 comes to a close, but today, let us share with you some great write ups of our little corner of the world!
First, this article from Bellingham Business News highlights some of the happenings around our shop. (Thanks for the great write up, Tobias!)
Second, we’re one of the sponsors for the holiday happenings through the Downtown Bellingham Partnership this season, which means we’re participating in a few events to help encourage people to shop locally this year. We had a super successful “Shop Small Saturday” for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, including homemade mini cinnamon rolls and mini muffins that Stephanie whipped up and passed out to shoppers. This weekend is Downtown’s Shop Dine Celebrate event, which we’re also participating in! We are offering 10% off your entire order when you purchase any of our already really reasonably priced retail goodies. Better yet, tag yourself from ANY participating location with the hashtag #bhamSDC on ANY social media platform and be entered in a drawing to win some GREAT prizes from lots of downtown merchants!
In the coming days, we’ll have updates for you on this year’s Bellingham Mama’s Support Network giving tree (which we’re participating in for the 4th year running) and on our upcoming holiday hours for Christmas, New Years, and our annual Black Drop Black Out cocktail party of awesome. So now that we’re back in the swing of things, check back in with us, won’t you?
