We Shopped The City!

Wow!  Who knew shopping the city could be SO fantastic!  Here I am, "locked and loaded" and ready to embark on a wonderful day ~ not as a "shopper," but as a "vendor!"



If you missed my post about this fabulous event, here's the scoop.  Last Wednesday, Tucson's own Angel Charity for Children sponsored an inaugural event, "Shop the City."  A myriad of vendors who cater to the wants and needs of women, joined forces to put on a great shopping extravaganza, all to benefit the children of Tucson!

Health, beauty, fashion, home decor, jewelry, accessories and more were represented in the University of Arizona ballroom.



I've been working crazily the past few months to prepare, but I could not have pulled it off without the help of my right hand gal, Shotzie....stylist, stager, and sales!

Unpacking and setting up...
Here's are some more pix for you to enjoy....












Lillie was so excited to attend the event and dress up in her Day of the Dead duds!





I'm a lucky mama to have both my girls with me...Kiki came from work to help out as well, and Papa Hess stopped by to check on his ladies.   It was non-stop activity from 3 pm when the doors opened until 8 pm. when they closed.  

Sadly, I didn't have a moment, once the festivities began, to get pictures of the other vendors, but they were all wonderful.  Oh, and I didn't even get a chance to shop!

But, it was all worth it....I got to make fabulous new friends, catch up with fantastic old friends, and help a charity that's near and dear to my heart.

Would I do this again?  In a heartbeat!  Thank you, Angels, for inviting me ~  and for all your sisterly love!




And now?  It's back to buzzin' in the Hive as my Holiday Trunk Show is right around the corner....November 10th, from 2 ~ 6 p.m. at Casa Hess.  E-vites go out today!

Have a blessed week my dear friends, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your visit today!
