My window was all dressed in GREEN for the event and (cough, cough) I am a Eco-Friendly boutique so what other was there to go that GREEN. Did I mention my grandfather is an Irishman...from Dublin. So today I honored him and the Loughney name and wore my green and shamrocks.
My neighbor at the skate shop and I had the table and a sofa outside and our stores were packed our front with parade goers, our families, children and friends. Awesome crowd.
I have to say I got some great compliments and some wonderful feedback. I was told "it's about time", "just what we need" "how refreshing", "how awesome", "how creative and beautiful" my shop was and that made me feel great. I think I will be well received once we get our name out a bit more and people know that I am there on Main Street now.
Here are a few pics from the days events.........Happy St. Patrick's Day to ya! (early but still it was on this day)
My GREEN Irish window display
I even had a little leprechaun in my window too
Parade goers and people entering our little shop raffle
My husband, me and the coolest Marine...he might be cooler than the drill Sgt. from Full Metal Jacket!
I was glowing from excitement of being a business owner on Main Street
My little Irish display for the parade goers, cool stuff and snacks.
