Now that, my friends, is brand loyalty.
This past Friday, Chris Thiess, one of our most treasured artists led a class in how to build a whirligigs with some of the other artists and members of our store team. It was a wonderful time of learning, swapping stories about some of the treasures they were combining to make a whirligig, brainstorming about other projects and fun. There are many wonderful things about Bunnies By The Bay, but the art and creativity that flows from Jeanne, Krys and Suzanne to create the environment for other artists to flourish is truly special.
Wee Kiddo the lamb has quickly become a favorite friend of our Cricket Island Fans, and has quickly sold out . He has been searched for far and wide and we are messaged daily about when he will be back. It wasn’t long before we started calling this the Wee Kiddo craze..We have people all over the world asking, “Where did all the Wee Kiddos go?”
Our corporate office is located in Anacortes Wash. Our store at FAO is located faraway from us in New York City at Rockefeller Center
We are so proud of it. It is hard not to be able to see it often, work with customers at the shop and dream about new products while we are there
Yesterday, my cousins took their daughter to our FAO shop for a magic moment. Thank you for sharing. It made my day. 🥕🥕🥕🥕
On Friday, the leadership of Bunnies By The Bay was about an off site meeting on a sister Island, called Whidbey Island. It is a real treat when we are all together and happens far to infrequently than we would like.
If you are ever near Whidbey Island, please take the time to visit. There are some really treasures to explore, Coupeville, Ebey’s Landing, Fort Casey are just a few places to explore. I drove over via the ferry and stopped in Langley. I love Langley. Great places to shop including Edit and The Star Store. There are great art studios to dream in and great places to sip and snack. What I LOVE is how you can be on First Street in town look over at the water and see a variety of boat traffic, Camano Island and wild life including whales.
I parked and was getting myself organized for a walk before our meeting. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this beautiful gray bunny hop by. It made me smile and I quickly tried to get a picture. I made me think of Krys, a founder, a sister, one of the owners of Bunnies By The Bay. Once when we were on a walk, we saw a bunny hop quickly in front of us and then away into the brush. She grabbed my hand and motioned to me where the bunny had gone to make sure I had seen it. Krys said to me every time you see a bunny it’s your sign that you are going to have a great day. Later on the walk we saw another bunny, so we concluded we were both going to have great days.
Here’s to everyone finding “their bunny” today and having a great day.
