come play & vintage field trip...

i am so excited to finally get to tell you about
our september come play event!

on saturday september 6
we will have two sessions to choose from
2pm-5pm
&
6pm-9pm

jill has a great project for us to make
(sneak peek up above)
using the cocoa daisy october kit
there will be yummy treats
time to play, socialize or just hang out
& lots of fun!

we were going to include ali's new book
Sharing Your Story: Recording Life's Details with Mini Books
in the price of the class but
i heard from a few people that they had already preordered it
so we are going to have copies available
& make the price of the sessions lower
& who doesn't like a lower price?
if you would like to buy a book at the session
(the price for a book is $20)
please let me know when you sign up
& we will have one ready for you!

bonus!
we are going to set ali up at a cute little table
(or maybe a nice comfy chair for her preggo tummy:)
& she will sign copies of her book just for you
so bring a book or two:)
ali is also going to bring some of the mini books she created
for the book so that you can see them in real life...
hello! inspiring!

tricia will bring some add on & past kits
that you can buy
if you just can't get enough:)

then sunday:
field trip!
we will wake up before the sun
& head out to the coburg antique fair!
we will have a meet up spot for the early birds
(we're talking 6am, girls, so drive through for your coffee & come out:)
for those who would like a bit more sleep
& are confident that their treasures will wait for them
come out whenever you want to!
i will have my cell phone & we will all find each other!
at around 10 we will meet in the food area
& have a brunchy (or second breakfast) show & tell!
it will be so fun to see what everyone found!
& it will give you that little time you need to
decide if you should go back for that adorable
vintage quilt that would be perfect in the guest room
(i say go for it!:)
after show & tell & nibbles of muffins (or whatever they have there)
you can decide if you want to continue on the hunt
or head home for a nap
with your car full of fabulous finds:)

not sure about your hunting abilities?
lucky for us we have someone
with mad antiquing skills:)
on saturday at each session
jill will give a little talk with tips & tricks for
finding treasures,
some good tools to bring with you
& ways to tell if you really want to spend your money on that little figurine
or if you should save it for the jar of buttons in
the booth next door:)
if you have seen her house
you know she is so good at picking unique & beautiful things...
it will be so great to have inside info from an expert thrifter!

the price for this playtime is $65
& this time around we are requiring a deposit
of $25 to hold your spot...
first head right over to the top of the sidebar
& click on 'pay now'
(this our first try using paypal
so please let me know if there are any glitches:)

then email me to let me know which session
you would like to attend
& if you would like to buy ali's book
emily@cocoadaisy.com

this is going to be super fun!
it's so great to get out & about with other creative people...
i hope you will come play with us!

have a great day...
