HOLIDAY SPIRIT TO GET US THROUGH THE HOLIDAY CHAOS!
December 29, 2015
It was the longest hours and winter days our business had seen since we first opened in 2012. And when that could seem like a bad thing in most businesses and blogs, it was actually a good and warm feeling kind of thing for us! ;) What we mean is that for a month straight from Black Friday to Christmas Eve, our doors were open and production lights were on pulling 10 am - 10 pm shifts producing gifts for the Holiday season! We couldnʻt beilieve the amount of customers and smiling faces that kept on flowing through our doors for presents and gifts for the smiles they were eager for us to help them create on Christmas Morning! Everyone seemed to have a custom gift in mind and with Pinterest and DIYʻs flooding Social Media feeds itʻs no wonder why custom gifts are so popular. From day 1, Black Friday, of the Holiday shopping season, we were overwhelmed with Christmas orders and gifts and of course we rolled out a Black Friday special and a hard to resist Christmas deal for Christmas shirts; 12 shirts in any style, size and color of their choice, one design and one color and for $160 bucks inclusive of taxes, the deal made it hard to not get it that day! And so there we were, designing shirts, hats, coozies, stickers, printing shirts, washing silk-screens and even having to croc pot our dinners to eat at the store, just to fulfill our Mr. & Mrs. Clause duties of Kaunakakai, Molokai! And boy did we have fun with our Holiday contract from Santa Clause! Lol! And every single time we swore we were done with taking orders for Christmas, there they were, a smiling, full of Aloha customer just wanting to make someone else happy with a personalized gift. And how could we say No to that?! Jesus wouldnʻt, Mother Theresa wouldnʻt, King Kamehameha wouldnʻt, definitely not Princess Pauahi, so definitely not us! We would never...say...No! Lol! From persoanlized and glow in the dark hats, to 4 pm last minute Christmas Eve coozies, we whistled while we worked, gave eachother stink eyes and high fives at the same time and produced hundreds of gifts for a Shaka Kalikimaka for all of our customers! Molokaʻi - we were blown away with your choice to shop local and kakoʻo local koko this Christmas season by supporting our business! And most of all, Mahalo for your all-year long spirt of Christmas, the Aloha spirit to live to give and care to share of all things! Mahalo and Shaka Kalikimaka! And P.S. - Santa from the North Pole also thanks you for lessening his load to Molokai this year! ;)
