One of our favorite wholesale accounts, Rosauers “Huckleberry’s Natural Market”, is having their grand re-opening this weekend. We will be participating with a display of our Culinary Lavenders, “Provence” and “Signature Blend”. I am preparing our Lavender Mint Shortbread, and Lavender Ginger Snaps, and will have samples for tasting. We’ve had a wholesale account with Rosauers for around 6 years now. I can’t begin to tell the staff at “Huckleberry’s Department” how much we appreciate them! I love to see their smiling friendly faces, while I’m visiting to restock our display, or just in shopping. I also love to hear customers tell how they conveniently purchase our lavender products while shopping for groceries 🙂
I have packed a lovely basket full of our most popular culinary products that will be raffeled off on Saturday, so be sure and “Come Out” to say “HI”, and sign up for the gift basket! We celebrate our friendship and business relationship with Rosauers Huckleberry’s Natural Market, in our home town of Hood River. Thank you Rosauers!!
I just restocked the gift shop at one of my favorite Bed and Breakfast, Old Parkdale Inn. It is just up the road from us, in beautiful Parkdale. Old Parkdale Inn is a fanciful inn nestled in the upper Hood River Valley on the northern slope of Mt. Hood with unbelievable views of the mountain. Three well appointed rooms with private baths. Steve & Mary Pellegrini are the most gracious innkeepers! Visit their website: www.HoodRiverLodging.com, check em out
I’ve been busy packing up web orders, and shipping them out to arrive at each home, just in time for Christmas. Also, delivering products to our wholesale accounts around town, making it convenient for shoppers to purchase our products while they are out shopping for groceries. Sometimes I feel like Santa’s little lavender Elf. ~:-)
Today I looked out the window, across the snow covered grass, and thought about how thankful Joe and I are to have a business like this, with lavender products that bring calming peace to many people. We greatly appreciate all our wonderful customers that make this possible!! Today I’m taking the day off, and visiting my dear Mother for the afternoon. We plan to watch “It’s A Wonderful Life”, eat Chex Mix, and drink root beer floats together! Life is wonderful, and I can think of many reasons why it is!
Joe and I hope you have a safe and happy Christmas. Light a candle, and relax with your family, and friends.
I just finished restocking Hood River Chamber of Commerce, a local wholesale account that we’ve had for several years. We love our Chamber! We have been a member with them since 2003. They are a tremendous support to local business! When they asked if we wanted to bring a few of our top selling products in to display for tourist to sample or purchase, we couldn’t resist 🙂
We also have a wholesale account at our local Rosauers Grocery Store, in “Huckleberries”, the organic section; and The Gift House downtown Hood River, and also at Mother’s Market Place, a Vegan store. Each of these wholesale accounts help promote local small business and encourage “buy local” shopping. These accounts make our products convenient to our customers when they are out shopping for other necessary items for their homes and family. We greatly appreciate the support of our community, our friends in business!!!
