Hello sweet friends, good news to report!
This past summer we welcomed our second baby girl to the family, and life is beautiful. She's a delightful baby and Mae LOVES being a big sister; however I have found my time is stretched more than ever before. Bonjour Mae Mae is a one-woman operation...I am the designer, seamstress, accountant, sales team...all of it. I love this business, it's a huge part of me, and now there's a new phase to it.
This season of life, running Bonjour Mae Mae is just too time consuming. So, this sale is my last big hurrah for a while. I am still passionate about creating high quality children's apparel, accessories, and teepees, but it cannot be at the expense of time with my daughters. The next several months I will spend reorganizing the business, making it more sustainable and streamlined. I have LOADS of great ideas for where I want Bonjour Mae Mae to go in the next year, I just need time to get them into motion. Bonjour Mae Mae is far from over, I'm just putting it on pause so that I can lead it in a direction that works for our family.
That being said...let's have an awesome sale with a bazillion items, and send this sucker out with a bang. Sound good?!?
Here's how it's going to go down...
12 noon CST - Teepees :: There are 4 "boyish" tents and 5 "girly" tents. Local pickup (North Dallas) is free and encouraged, however if you absolutely fall in love with one of the tents and live outside of driving distance, I can ship it for an additional $60. The teepees are $150, and because there is such a limited number of tents all invoices will need to be paid within 24 hours. Sorry to be a stickler, but it's the only fair way to make sure everyone gets a chance to purchase a teepee!
2pm CST - Christmas Items :: Holiday themed bow ties, hair bows, dresses and cardigans! All holiday items are discounted 20% off our normal prices, and will ship immediately!
4pm CST - Hair Accessories Galore :: There are approximately 45 different styles of flowers available, so these will post as an album instead of each photo individually. Be sure to click all the way through the album to see each adorable style! These have already been attached to a clip or headband, so the format will look similar to this:
As you can see, there are limited quantities of alligator clips, snap clips, and stretchy headbands. When you go to checkout, you will get to choose the type of backing you would prefer for your flower from the options available for that particular posy. A word to the wise: since the quantities are so small of each type of clip/headband, don't leave items hanging out in your cart for a long time or they might get snatched up by someone else. On the other hand, even if an item appears to have already sold, still comment "sold" and you might get lucky :)
4:30pm Bow Ties :: Lots of awesome fall bow ties, some marked WAY down. Get familiar with our sizing chart so that you can quickly snag the one that is right for your little man.
For all items, purchasing is super easy! Just comment under the photo "sold" and then register with Soldsie here: https://www.soldsie.com/shop/bonjourmaemae
A few insider tips:
- Refresh your screen often so that you don't miss the new items as they post.
- Even if an item appears to be sold out, go ahead and comment "sold". You will not be invoiced unless the person ahead of you cancels their invoice or doesn't pay in time. Essentially, you're just holding a spot as second in line for an item :)
- I will be checking Facebook throughout the day, so if you have a question about a particular item, please feel free to comment under the photo. I will get back to you as quickly as I possibly can!
I feel SO VERY BLESSED to have gotten share some of the items I've created with so many of y'all. The photos I receive of your children enjoying my creations are amazing, meeting some of you at craft shows is surreal, and I am everyday thankful that God has given me this opportunity. From the bottom of my sappy, hormonal, mommy heart...Thank you.
xoxo - Monica
