tomorrow is the big day!

The Newport shops are gearing up to host the best semiannual shop hop in town! Here at the Shanty we are crazy busy getting ready for you. UPS BOB is visiting us every day, dropping off tons of goodies that we know you’ll love!
Just wait till you see what the Shanty girls have done to make this day “just right” for you. They’ve all worked hard and pinched in - prepping food, running errands, painting bird cages and getting crafty.
                                              see the lilac busehs in the background? wait till you see them!
Have you been to WLTGO?? (All the cool people know that it’s short for Who Let the … jk you’re still cool if you didn’t know that.) Go to here for more overall event info. It’s pretty fabulous! I have so many “favorite” parts of the day, but one of my most favorite is when I get to sneak out, jump in my car and just drive the streets. I get some serious happy tears and goose bumps seeing all you gals walking our town, smiling and having fun.  I drive around thinking our town rocks, you rock, the shops rock. It’s like a big love fest in my heart. So now you know … if you show up to WLTGO (see now you are cool) and don’t see me, I’m making my 5 minute escape. That’s just Secret #1 … there’s more to come.  Okay, I’ll tell you Secret #2 … if you show up at 9 a.m. you won’t see me either because I am in my car putting on makeup. No matter what, I just can’t seem to get that done before … ever! Rushelle won’t be here this time to remind me and force me … soo if it looks like I forgot, will you remind me?? One more - Secret #3 … it’s about the last hour before we open … no, I will tell you this one later. hehe
Okay back on track to Shanty happenings!  Here is some of what we have in store for you!!
Early Bird Coffee Special!  9am-10am $2 for any 16 oz latte or mocha
PhotoBooth Lisa, of Lisa Cruse Photography, will be taking some fun pictures in the backyard! Don’t forget to strike a pose while you’re visiting. We’ll put them on FB shortly after the event so if you don’t already follow us on FB, then now is the time. Be sure to tag yourself in the photos, then watch out for a fun FB contest.
