December has been super busy for us. We've gotten all the orders from our Cyber Monday promotion shipped and on their way. Thanks to everyone who participated and enjoyed our 20% off sale.
Still on tap are our Endless Trunk Show at Artful Heart in Arlington, MA, where Marissa will be hosting extra joyarte jewelry merchandise at the store most of the week. Owner Carla is also celebrating her store anniversary, doing a fundraiser to support the previous owner, and is offering treats in the store. Marissa reports that the Arlington First Lights event on Saturday brought out lots of shoppers, packing the space. If that's any indication of the rest of the month, you'll want to get into the shop early for the best selection.
Here in San Antonio, joyarte will be participating as on of the pop up shops in the Center City OPEN event. They have teamed with local business owners to offer short-term, rent-free spaces along Houston Street for established businesses. Kristine and I are (you guessed it) super excited about participating. This will be the first time joyarte has had a physical store front. And even though it's only for a couple of days, we have pulled out all the stops to create a great space for shoppers. We are emphasizing recycle and reuse in the fixtures, and of course everything will be winter-y white for the season.
We plan to do lots of in-store events and promotions, like demonstrations and mystery coupons. We hope to see lots of you there.
