Everyone had fun at the Pop-Up Boutique this weekend. Staff members were welcomed between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and several found exciting things, especially in the jewelry department. On Saturday morning, we had people at our door by 7:00 a.m. despite the fact that we didn't officially open until 8:00 a.m. Of course, we welcomed them in. They too, found great bargains with clothing from Land's End, J Jill, Banana Republic and more. By the end of the morning, we had raised almost $1000. What a great event! It was such as success that we are going to repeat it in the springtime, when even more people are looking for yard sales. We expect to reach the $1000 mark this week, as the jewelry that we still have will be available to staff this week in my office.
