It’ll come as no surprise to anyone to hear that we hosted our second shopping party last week – a Bunyip Shopping Shindig! After our fabulous Christmas party last year we couldn’t wait to host another event for our customers, and thought a summer bash would be the perfect excuse.
So last Thursday almost 70 wonderful customers came along to knock back a glass of Pimms, have their hair braided, make beautiful brooches and whip up friendship bracelets! Here’s a few snaps I managed to get early on, before things got a bit busy for me to be playing paparazzi…
These lovely ladies were some of the first to have a go on the Sizzix Big Shot Machine, and cut out pretty felts & fabrics to be sewn into a brooch.
We were thrilled to meet Vlogger Sarah, who had the hair of my dreams…
We were very overexcited that the event ended up being sold out (and vaguely concerned about how many people we could squeeze into the shop at once), and there was a wonderful atmosphere of chatting, making and buying going on for the very quick 2 hours. We gave out goody bags with purchase, and I’m loving the photos rolling in of the Festival Crown kits we included – they look awesome!
Here’s lovely shop friend Amanda & glamorous pals…
And wonderful customer Lizzie & her lovely Mum….
And here’s Bunyip babe Kellie giving Lois an amazing hair braid! (I’m gutted mine has unravelled, we need another party so I can rectify this…)
We’ll be hosting another event at Christmas, pre-plans for which already include Prosecco cocktails and cupcakes, obviously. We may even host the event over 2 nights, so that nobody has to miss out on a ticket and everyone gets a bit more time & space to make lovely things!
First dibs for tickets always go to the mailing list, so do sign up on the website if you haven’t already.
We can’t wait!
