You may have noticed on our Facebook and Instagram over the last few days: we've been busy making sure we're moving into 2019 strong with all kinds of projects and events. To keep you up to date, we're putting it all together in this post.
Coming up in just a few days is our big Valentine's Day giveaway! We've called many of our local-lovin' friends together to build quite the package. You may or may not already have plans with your special person for February 14th, but this gift bundle can certainly give you a boost. To start the day off right, you can sip on some of that fresh hot brew with a pound of beans from our new friends Abide Culture Coffee in one of our own Idaho Love USA Townie insulated mugs. Get yourself smelling fresh while you relax with a lovely bath bomb from Mountain Madness Soap Co. before you take a +1 out for dinner at Collective Kitchen with a $50 gift card. Dessert will be happily provided by our favorite pie enthusiasts, Bean & Pie, while you enjoy the fresh fragrances of the NW from Inland Candle Co. To top it off, you can spend the day with your favorite person while you rep your favorite town in our Mauve Logo Tee and 3 Idaho love stickers! Make sure to check out our social media pages on Friday, February 1st for all the details on how to get your chance to win these awesome products!
We are excited to announce that we are in the running for the best clothing store in Coeur d'Alene for 2019! It's that time of year again where Cd'A picks their favorite businesses in town by voting in the North Idaho Business Journal. We were so honored last year to be voted the best men's clothing store and second in women's clothing - THANK YOU! If you still think so, make sure to vote for us in the Women's, Men's, and Children's Clothing categories! You don't have to stop there, however. There's a category for just about every kind of local business in town, so make sure to let people know which businesses you love supporting by taking a couple seconds to place your votes in categories like "Recreation and Entertainment," "Dining," and "Health and Beauty." This award means a lot for the people who work hard in our community to provide you with the best of the best. Voting starts online on February 10th!
Speaking of voting, we are proud to be the host of Bean & Pie's delicious samples for The Chocolate Affair on Friday, February 8th. This annual event in Downtown Cd'A showcases the best local chocolatiers, confectioners, bakers, and all-around dessert lovers in competition - paired with wine. Who could ask for more? Each dessert sample is hosted by a shop downtown, so not only are you tasting gourmet sweets and voting for your favorites, but also getting to know many more of our local businessmen-and-women and the great things they have to offer. You may have seen our video on Facebook where we taste-tested which Bean & Pie flavors we were going to sample at the event, so make sure to get your tickets to find out which we picked!
Did you know many of our local business friends make the Coeur d'Alene Maker's Market a huge priority for their business? Did you know you can meet those friends at the February Market at the Resort on Sunday, February 10th? Abide Culture Coffee, Inland Candle Co., Bean & Pie, Fairwells Jewelry, and 70+ other makers bring out their best for 6 hours in an open market at the Coeur d'Alene Resort convention center. This market is just in time to pick up the perfect handmade, unique Valentine's - or Galentine's - gift! This market is free entry with stuff for the kids to do and all kinds of samples, so make sure you stop by and get to know some incredible people!
And this is all happening in only the first half of the month!! Not only that, we've got a bunch of new designs coming out! New T-shirt designs and colors, new stickers (including some designs to commemorate Cd'A's awe-inspiring eagle season), and mugs. There are plenty of ways to see what we're up to, so follow us on here on the Blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube to get all the latest updates!
