Just a little note to let you know that the Christmas elves have arrived in Steveston and are hard at work inside Pieces.
The shop will be closed on Thursday, October 31 and Friday, November 1 with the big reveal taking place on Saturday, November 2.
Thank you for your patience - we look forward to sharing the magic with you!
Steveston (which I have temporarily renamed Fogston) has been under a blanket of low cloud for a week now.
It has been interesting to hear people's reaction to this change in weather. Some love the fog horn, others can't stand it. The lack of sun casts a bit of a damper on things, however, with the mist hanging in the air it is also painting some lovely pictures.
Spiderwebs are everywhere! It is amazing to see them suspended in places one would never think to look. They must always be there, but this spritz of mist is needed to truly see how busy spiders are from their ground level webs, all the way up to the top of trees where they are gently swaying.
Evenings take on a magical quality as the fog sets in more heavily, creating a mood so perfect the week before Hallowe'en.
The sound of the fog horn is a comforting reminder of our location so close to the river, in this truly unique waterfront village.
Thank you to all of our customers who attended the Trollbeads event. It was a great hit and many of you are now adorned with beautiful new additions to your bracelets, while others have entered the world of the starter bracelet and are experiencing the excitement of beads to come!
The foggy autumn weather has followed us for days now. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Hallowe'en is a mere 10 days away! The Scarecrow Crawl continues until the end of the month and then, like the birds heading south, the scarecrows will say goodbye until next October. Yes, time is flying, and at Pieces the end of October also means Christmas is not far behind...
The Autumn Trollbeads are simply beautiful and are ready to make their appearance this week at Pieces Multi-Day Trollbeads Event. Between Thursday October 17 through Sunday October 20 drop into the shop during regular business hours to view the collection.
Show specials are offered (see our previous blog) and with flower beads, a baby carriage bead, and even even a Skeleton Spirit bead (which many customers have pre-ordered), there is truly a bead for everyone - and remember Trollbeads motto, "Every Story Has a Bead."
We look forward to seeing you this week!
Pieces values customer feedback. In the past we have held one day Trollbeads events, however some people could not make it to the Trunk Show.
To give you a chance to see the NEW Autumn 2013 Trollbeads in all their glory Pieces is hosting a Multi-Day Event during business hours October 17 - 20. There is already plenty of buzz about the beads - have a sneak peek at www.Trollbeads.com
This is your chance to start or add to your bracelet (or put some beads aside for upcoming holiday gifts).
* Complementary bracelet with the purchase of a decorative clasp
* Purchase 3 beads and get a complementary 4th bead (of the lesser value of the grouping)
"Stories of You" starter bracelet $99.95
While at the Trollbeads event Enter to Win some special beads.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
(While in Steveston remember to save time to go on the Scarecrow Crawl!)
