Thanks to everyone who came by our booth at the Calgary Woman’s Show. We are taking this opportunity to acknowledge everyone who took the time to offer their support, give us tips for new products and markets as well as the many, many who came to make purchases for themselves, their loved ones and the soon-to-arrive loved ones in their lives.
The ladies of Calgary were so generous we even had one lady, Heather S., purchase a Ready for Anything pack to donate to the Foothills Hospital so that one of their patients may have an easier time with their stay in hospital. She thought the packs were a great idea but had recently been in hospital and wasn’t planning a future visit. Go figure.
When I went into the hospital to deliver the pack, I explained the situation to the volunteer on duty and was taken to the admitting desk. After a long wait and no one available to speak with us, I was sent to Unit 61 where most people who come from emergency end up when they need to stay in hospital. I took the pack to the nurse on duty and tried hard to get the whole story out quickly so that she wouldn’t think I was wasting her time and once I got the words out her face changed. She was so happy to hear that someone would go to that kind of effort to repay the kindness they had received at their hospital. It’s this generosity that makes Calgary a wonderful place to live and do business.
Our biggest seller was the Office Pack which I think we’re going to have to rename. So many people seemed to think it was perfect for a short hospital stay or for returning home from a minor procedure. No one likes to be confined to bed, even at home, but having a few things nearby that aren’t going to clog up the whole of your bedside table – now that’s convenient.
So once again, thank you Calgary Woman’s Show attendees for your warm reception. We will be posting the winners of our Show prizes (2 daily prizes of Elizabeth Grant Golden Angel bath products and our Grand Prize of a photo sitting with pictures from our kind friend Nadine Foster.)
Be sure to use your Calgary Woman’s Show Coupon for future purchases – good until the end of the year.
