We have been very, very fortunate to have such good friends. I can’t say that often enough, from our vet to our customers, everyone we talk to about our animals and our products is or has become a friend of the family. And when you have friends like ours, sometimes all you need to do to have a banner sales year is throw a party.
Before Christmas, Grammy (that’s Mom’s Mom) had a little get together for all of our friends at Concordia, her apartment complex. I just hope I get to live somewhere that fun someday; it has a very tight-knit, party dorm sort of feel to it. Grammy had some food and drinks, and we brought the merchandise. Many of Grammy’s friends had already made a pilgrimage out to the ranch at the open house, so it was good to see them again. In addition to having a very good time, they were generous in their support of Cliff House Alpacas, and we’re very glad to have been a part of the holiday season in so many households.
So, thanks Concordia and Grammy! You all are awesome!
On a side note, I’ve decided that trunk shows are the most fun way to sell products. Which isn’t surprising, since a bottle of red wine seems to improve pretty much all activities. Well, except driving obviously.
