We are so excited about how the space is coming together and are busily preparing for our celebration on Saturday! We'll cut the ribbon at 9am and start a new chapter for Geppetto's Toy Box. We'll kick off the day with a ribbon cutting and then celebrate with Zoku lemonade pops (we had a big lemon to squeeze.) while the kids help us "christen" the new store by painting their handprint in the foyer.
Geppetto's Toy Box is on the road to recovery after a fire this weekend at Velvet Rope caused some smoke damage. They have been updating their Facebook page on the status of, what they are calling, a 'spa day' for the toys.
The spring season has begun, which means my family can expect weekly CSA deliveries from Genesis Growers. Every week, Farmer Vicki packs up a surprise package of produce for us, which we pick up at Geppetto’s Toy Box, the designated drop-zone.
We've been very busy here at the Journal offices getting ready for a special Mother's Day tribute to our local businesses and families. I have been extremely lucky to find that local retailers were happy to help out and outfit some folks. It's been a good opportunity for me to meet some business owners I would not have normally had the chance to. And I have had the chance to work with a couple of great moms and some pretty super kids.
