Shanty is Turning 1

We did it!! We made it!!! and we owe it all to you. We turn 1 Wednesday July 1st. We want to thank you so we are throwing you a party. Come celebrate with us. All day we are going to have 16 oz coffee drinks for $1.50. Complimentary treats...cupcakes anyone?? A gift with purchase....yes every purchase (excluding the coffee drinks) you will get a present from us. I think you'll love it too.

Then after 4 we are having a Garden Party with yummy tidbits and WINE. If you have ever been to our other events, Shanty After Hours or Who Let the Girls Out you know how we like to throw a party....if not this is your chance!!

There is one more way to enjoy our day with us, especially if you can't make it to the party (but we sure hope you are). We have started this blog so that our customers, friends and family can check in on us, communicate with us, see whats new, see whats great, see what inspires us and just enjoy this journey with us. If you comment at the end of this blog entry (see note below) you will be entered into a fabulous drawing for a fantastic basket of gifts. Any comment will do. You could tell us about your favorite Shanty purchase, memory, thoughts, suggestions (things you'd like to see in the next year) or you could just leave your name. We will put it in a drawing and announce the winner after the party. So COMMENT away and we will see you on the 1st!!

**NOTE A Blog is a online journal. Many businesses use them because it such a user friendly way to be able to be online showing new products, inspirations and communicating with their customers and other business owners on a more personal level.
