We had a BOO-tastic time!

We always love a good party! Inspired by one of our favorite Halloween books, No Such Things by Ella Bailey, we threw together a Halloween Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost Bash. We loved seeing our visitors get in on all the fun with their creative costumes! Plus customers who shopped at our store got the sweetest little Halloween manicure from Long Beach local Hey, Nice Nails! owners Donne & Ginney and bedazzled their very own witch party hat or pumpkins!. We also had spooktacular treats from Jessi Loves Sugar Cookies and Dipp N Chill.

We can’t forget about the show-stopping puppet performance from Hey Hey Entertainment. He kept the crowd laughing and cheering the whole way through!

The Bee & the Fox POP UP SHOP // Saturday, November 1st

If you have heard of The Stork and the Beanstalk, then you know this baby blog has been ranked as one of the top baby blogs out there!

We met Ashley when she stumbled upon our first flea market booth back in 2012. It was vintage love at first sight! ;P She has been one of our number one supporters from the start of our journey and we are so thrilled to be joining her on her journey with her new children’s line, The Bee & the Fox.

Ashely and I have been talking about working together for sometime and on November 1st, we are teaming up! The Bee & the Fox will be holding their very first Pop Up shop at Sweet Threads. Not to mention Sweet Threads will be their very first retailers. It’s a first for many things! 🙂

Here’s an added bonus! Your child will also be styled in Sweet Threads one-of-a-kind vintage pieces for the photo and if you’re also interested in purchasing any additional items from Sweet Threads, you will receive a discount. The Stork and the Beanstalk will be emailing you the high resolution image (s) of your child. Here’s the details!
