We've come a long way baby!
In August 2010, The Pauper's Castle set up shop for the first time.
Oh my how things have changed.
This is how our space looked on opening day!
The walls were a bit naked. It's funny, when we were getting things ready to step up, it seemed like we had so much. Once it was all spread out, that proved otherwise.
(Our blog has changed a bit over time too...no poking fun!)
So here we are, August 2012, celebrating our 2nd Anniversary!
I can't believe it's been 2 years! Time does fly!
|Todd and me with CeCe|
Last week Todd and I traveled to Michigan for a retailers meeting and training. Here we were blessed to meet our distributors and other retailers in person. It's nice to finally put a face with a name. But the highlight to the day was meeting "THE" CeCe Caldwell! What an honor! Don't tell her I posted this picture, she said she hates her photo taken.
She is an amazing person with an amazing paint and a very down to earth approach to business! Just the way we like it! Simple, yet fun! We learned lots of new techniques and I can't wait to share them!
If things continue as planned we will be able to provide CeCe Caldwell's - Paint Made Easy - Workshops in the very near future. Here we will be able to share some of these new techniques. We hope to have these classes available as early as late September or the first part of October! I can't tell you how excited I am about this! So tell your friends and family, gather them up and plan to join us for fun evening of painting. Updates can be found on our events page of our website.
Wait! Did I say evening of painting?
I did...there have been a couple of changes!
Good changes. We hope to have the option of offering a 6-9pm class on a Thursday or Friday as well a possibly some daytime classes. So if you have taken our workshop survey, please go back and vote again. I have added the evening time as well and would love to hear your thoughts. This will help us in planning and make sure we offer what YOU would like to see!
Main Street Shoppes is also having their annual Labor Day Sale, September 1-9, 2012. There will be mall wide discounts from 10-50% off for all mall vendors. The Pauper's Castle will be offering 10% off all items (excludes paint) in our shop! Just in case, we are shop #33.
Thanks for your support over the past 2 years. We would not be here without you, our customer! We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to all the new things our journey has to offer!
Ciao for now! Kellie
