The holidays are a special time of year, where we often reflect on time passed and look forward to the new year ahead. As a small business owner, I am no different. What a year 2014 has been for Fancy That! We were honored to celebrate two years in our Orenco Station location, the launch of our event studio at The Orenco Hotel and introduced our fantastic line of custom business products. I cannot wait to share with you all the fancy endeavors planned for 2015, but you’ll have to wait just a bit for that exciting news!
This time of year we all tend to reconnect with friends and family; This happens at the shop too. Just a few weeks ago I was thrilled to see one of my favorite neighborhood customers drop in to pick up her annual supply of our ‘drinking chocolate’ which she sends to family abroad. New this year, I created a ‘Christmas Morning’ food kit and had so much fun customizing it for several of our regular customers to give to family members near and far. And I cannot forget helping with the Second Annual Orenco Station Tree Lighting. All the hard work was worth it once I saw the smiling faces of kiddos on Santa’s lap and the twinkle in their eyes when he flipped the switch on our community’s fabulous tree.
Of course, it would not be the holidays without long hours, crazy deadlines, and a bit of chaos but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s been so much fun helping our community (local and online too) gear up for another fancy holiday, but always remember the expert staff at Fancy That is here year round to help you Celebrate the Everyday.
Wishing you a year filled with happiness,
