EDIT: The date of this event was originally November 24th, but please note that it has been changed and will now be held on Thursday, December 13th. You can find out why here.

We asked you to save the date for the Dot & Lil Fall Open House, and now you'll understand why! As you guys know by now, I go a little crazy planning events and really can't help it! Last year, I dragged a real live 8 foot Christmas tree to my booth at Smart Design Mart, and decked it out with mini-soaps as ornaments and little vintage fabric flowers. Our booth had handmade vintage-style stockings, too, that everyone kept trying to buy! That booth design is what inspired the Open House theme for this fall: 'Once Upon a Vintage Holiday'. My mind is going a little bit into holiday-overdrive just dreaming up possibilities for fun stuff to add to this theme!

We'll have a bunch of off-season items at heavily discounted prices, and big baskets of soap seconds and samples at 30-70% off. We'll also have the full lineup of our Fall & Winter 2012 collection for sale, with special displays of our gift items.

A DIY card and ornament station will be set up with the full arsenal of Dot & Lil's craft supplies (long live glitter!) Holiday cookies, apple-pie muffins, gingerbeer, fresh apple juice and of course tea and coffee served in our famous vintage tea cup collection.

Prize drawings and a silly Dot & Lil fan trivia game, and a few extra-special limited edition items available ONLY at the open house. A display showcasing our ingredients and how our products are made will be there, after many requests at our last open house. And, a photobooth corner to make sure you walk away with sweet memories of it all.

Hope we'll see you at our Fall Open House on December 13th! Looking forward to hosting any Dot & Lil fan young or old at our studio for the day.We'll be announcing more surprises and plans for the event in the next few weeks.
