Truckee Work And Fun!
Oh my goodness, you would not believe the amazing week we had selling gloves in Truckee. UN-FLIPPING-BELIEVABLE! I have so much follow up to do in the coming weeks. I took a 72 piece (6-dozen pair) order at my first stop, Soda Springs, and it all snowballed from there. People are so excited, and only bummed that we didn't have stock to sell out of our car for the holiday weekend.
I put the new protos on Mason for a day of learning how to ski (he's a rock star, by the way!), and his hands stayed warm and dry all day. He wore them again the next day for sledding and they got wet inside due to the deep, new snow and the fact that he was in it, deep, for hours. When we got back to the house, I tossed them in the washer and dryer and they came out great. He put them back on (by himself at this point) and was back out in the snow for God knows how long. When he came in, we opened them up, left them on the table and within a few hours, they were dry (moist only from likely sweating)...unlike the rest of us with conventional gloves that were still wet inside from the day before.
All good news. I have so much work to do and the more I do, the more I realize I have to do! I want to take a moment to acknowledge my dear friend Tim who came through and secured our reservation for the big kids industry trade show in Las Vegas in September. The entrepreneurial adventure would not be happening if not for the love, support, and help of those who believe in us. Thank you! Off and running, again! But smiling really big!
Take a moment and look at some of our pictures from the weekend. Greg and Heather were fun, but their new baby Josh is just a happy little love-bug! Thanks for sharing your sweet boy with us!
