A “Thank You!”…I could say a LOT of great words about Coro’s first open house but the two that come to mind first are…Thank You!

My heart is filled with joy, fulfillment and excitement thanks to all of who attended Coro’s first open house last week Friday!  It’s for all of you, my wonderful customers, that I do what I do!

Without you, my dream of owning my own business, having a flexible schedule to serve my family and helping women (and men too in their soon-to-be leather cuff bracelets!) feel confident, respected and stylish wearing Coro’s creations wouldn’t be possible!

Coro’s first open house exceeded my expectations in SO many ways!  Our home was filled with so many compliments from you all like, “Wow, your house looks like a model home with all the lovely Fall decorations”, and “You are a genius to repurpose and reuse old, vintage pieces like that in your necklaces” and “I am in love with your earrings because they are SO lightweight!.”

For those that physically attended, you will know that the night was filled with yummy, Fall inspired treats and drinks (a special “thank you” to Jessica Vasquez and her mom in law LeAnn Vasquez for the fabulous recipe wassil recipe that I will share below!), special event pricing, giveaways, and easy, laid back conversations as we enjoyed time with old and new friends.

Don’t be surprised if you see more open house events for Coro!  Based on how this first open house went, you have made it clear that you had a great time and I have already had requests for another event!  And, please don’t hesitate to share any feedback with me that you think would be helpful for future events.

For those who couldn’t attend, there is still a lot of good things going on for you too! Keep reading as you don’t want to miss what’s at the bottom of this post!  🙂

A Recipe…Here is the wassail recipe from Jessica Vasquez and LeAnn Vasquez…

1 gallon 100% cranberry juice, 1/2 gallon apple cider (not apple juice), (4) cinnamon sticks, (1) whole orange sliced, (5-10) red hot candies (little red candies found by the sprinkles in the baking aisle), and (5-10) whole dried cloves.  Simmer for several hours (I did 2 hours).  ENJOY!

A Winner…by random number generator, Miss Cheryl Wilhelmi, YOU are the winner of the “Try Your Hand” Leather Cutting Giveaway!  You have won a complimentary pair of earrings of your choice.  Congrats!  I hope everyone enjoyed trying his/her hand at cutting leather.  Perhaps you now have a new appreciation for handmade (yes, that means hand CUT!) leather jewelry!  🙂

A Reminder (or two!)…There is a SECOND GIVEAWAY (with a code for 20% off 1 item as well!) going on right now!  As you visit the pages of this website there should be a box that pops up while you are scrolling that asks you for your email.  Simply fill it out, and you will be entered in both the drawing for the set of earrings AND get a code to use online (or in person) on 1 item in Coro’s shop! Enjoy!

Ready for some Christmas shopping!?  Coro’s next event will be at the Liberty High School Craft Fair on Saturday, November 10 from 9am – 4pm.  I would love to have you stop by and see more new styles (yes, more bracelets!) and special event deals!

As always, you can shop my home display or at Paris Market Vintage in the Shops at Briargate!
