And by some I mean over 2,000!!
It was the largest order we've ever had.....the customer paid $11,000!!!
A huge boon for our store, management didn't want to turn it down.
But many of my coworkers are crafty types and we were up for the challenge.
About eight of us spent most of our shifts making bow after bow. We sent out three installments of 750 bows over the past couple weeks.
Some of my handmade bows.
The event planner specifically wanted red and blue. She was planning a party for two HUGE corporations and the bows were to be toppers for the holiday presents.
A lot of measuring and twisting of ribbon ensued.
Through cramped hands and long, monotonous days, we kept in good spirits.
It was nice--and dare I say fun--coming together as a small group and making "bow history" happen.
I'd always start by saying, "It's bow time!" and proudly referred to us as the Bow Brigade.
Today, the last of the custom order gets picked up. I can say I'm soooo over bow-making at the moment yet a part of me will miss it.
"Who knows," one of my coworkers said, "maybe she'll do business with us in the future and want a whole bunch more bows made."
If so, Bow Boy and the rest of the Bow Brigade will be ready!
