Thank you to all of you that came out this weekend so far, especially yesterday in that stormy weather! TLG, Wildwood Creations and A Moment in Time Photography has had such a great weekend thus far – we are looking forward to what brings us today.
Today is the last day to enter the draw to win the Jelly Fish! So make sure you make your way out to #24 on the Campbell River Gift Tour and get your name in!
Popular items? Custom hot/cold drinking vessels, baby blankets and bibs, beautiful photo cards of our local scenery, my personal favourite the butterflies, spinner rings, and sea urchins!
We are set up at 2277 Upland Rd. 10 – 4pm today!
Yes, Vicki and I meet quite often and talk about the inner workings of TLG, what’s working, what isn’t. Who’s art is better – I kid. Every business talks business, they talk marketing, presentation, sales, audiences – and then its strategy. It’s planning and forecasting the future and the needs of the business.
Out meetings aren’t structured, it’s usually at the commercial break of Say yes to the dress, or over dinner that I have invited myself to but nonetheless we do talk about it often.
I think we owe it to our community, our friends, our families, and your friends family to shop local. Because that one sale means more to us than the one you just spent at the big box. Can’t afford it right now? You can still do your part –
Every morning I try and blog – because this invites you into our space, into our thoughts and feelings. I review the stats – how many people actually read and how many just like and pass by. I review the TLG Facebook page too, whats the insights, who is liking, who reviewed, msgs, etc. I love posting and watching for the reactions. And then I switch over to Instagram – I am still learning the “gram” and I think I am beginning to get the hang of it. But every day we get one more person following… and I feel like the popular kid (finally!)
It’s actually pretty cool the networking I have found myself doing, reconnecting with old friends, meeting new ones – this is a pretty talented and loyal supportive community we live in!
Like, comment, and share those local businesses. It helps more than you think! So as always we are so very grateful for your love and support, have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to see all of you this weekend at our Open House! Did you see the Gift Tour in the paper today!??!
