1) LAST YEAR WAS A BLAST!
We have had 29 Annual Holiday Bashes, so we've had some practice on how to make it better and better each year. This video should explain it all.
2) YOU CAN BE THE TRENDSETTER OF YOUR FRIENDS!
Sometimes people don't like to reveal their secret shopping spots because they like to give the coolest gifts of their friends. But if you bring your friends, not only will you be the trendsetter, but they will thank you by buying you gifts from your favorite store for birthdays, anniversaries, and happy days for years to come. Sounds like a win-win to us.
3) IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE A YEAR!
We look forward to our Holiday Bash all year. It is like opening the floodgates to Holiday Cheer for us! This is the event that celebrates family, giving, sharing, happiness, lights, and the holiday spirit. People come from all over to attend, which makes it so special for us. We start decorating in October and we don't start selling anything holiday related until the first weekend of November at the premier because we like to give everyone the same chance. Feel free to come in and scout your favorite items now!
4) WAITING IN LINE FOR US TO OPEN WILL BE WAY COOLER THIS YEAR!
Usually, this is what it looks like 30 minutes before we open our doors on the the Friday night premiere of our Holiday Bash, (which for a small store, this is sooooo cool to see!) However this year, we added a beautiful mural by our co-manager, Kate Khalilian, which will give people in line something to do while anticipating the party, which brings us to number 5...
5) THE STORE FRONT MURAL
Our new mural is something that we have wanted to do for a really long time. We love the fact that the outside of our building can bring happiness just as much as the inside does. Apps like Postagram and Ink Cards can help you turn these images into cool postcards or even Christmas Cards! If you have your photo taken, make sure to tag us on Instagram @thetinkergirl and use the hashtag #tinkerwingsrva and you can win prizes! Who doesn't love free stuff!?!?
5) BE INSPIRED BY OUR HOLIDAY LIGHTS, TREES, AND DECORATIONS
Our goal is to turn the store into a winter wonderland. 20,000 square feet of beauty and happiness are waiting for you from the outside to the inside.
6) WE ARE ONE OF RICHMOND'S BEST GIFT STORES
Recently, we were voted one of the best local gift shops and best local retailers that is still in business since 1988. In the past, we have been voted one of the best gift wrappers, best places to buy children's gifts and best furniture restoration services.
7) YOU ARE SUPPORTING A SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS
We are a family business. When you shop here, you are helping families pay for their kid's and grandkid's tuitions, their medical bills, their livelihood. You are helping your community. Doesn't that make you feel strong?
8) WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
9) WE DO WHAT WE LOVE
They say that you should do what you love. You love shopping and we love giving you what you want.
10) DO YOU REALLY NEED A REASON TO SHOP?
