Thank you to everyone who attended our 8th Anniversary Celebration! We’d love to share some highlights from the event:

Everyone was so excited to grab one of our coveted anniversary gift bags, there was a huge line outside before we opened the doors!

Gift bags ran out in the first 30 minutes  looks like they were worth the wait!
