We are getting excited for this unique OSS show... it will be different for us in many ways; first, we have the MOST artisans/ vendors we have ever had, including a grundle you have never seen before. Second, we are throwing a couple parties during the show with uber hip live music (handsome young men playing guitars) and yummy refreshments (make sure you join the mailing list or become a fan of OSS on facebook, to get an invite to the first, everyone is invited to the Wrap Up Party, Saturday 3:00 - 5:00 pm). And third, the location is a new super cool urban retail district- the architecture is funky, the fountain and sculpture are a blast, and have I mentioned the parking? If tricky parking has kept you away from OSS in the past, you won't have an issue here. (Except Saturday morning, the triathlon may be a little tight- it ends at 11:30 am.)
Finally, if anyone knows how to throw a party- it's Daybreak. Saturday is the grand opening of SoDa Row (super cool urban retail district mentioned above), so they will have their own band on deck from noon until 2:00 pm, plus tons of activites you will want to bring your family to participate in (perhaps you could sneak off and shop while your husband watches the kids on the climbing wall, or flying kites.)
OSS artisans and vendors are know for being generous, and this show will be no different. Contests and giveaways will begin in ernest on Tuesday, September 1st. There is jewelry, bikes, furniture, home decor, candy, costumes, and TONS more to giveaway.
If you are looking for more free stuff- Jot It Down is working on a cute Halloween notepad you can earn for putting our button on your blog, post about us, or become a fan on facebook. Help us get the word out to your friends and family. Just let me know what you have done, and I will have a notepad with your name on it at the show for you to pick up.
