On the 8th of February it will be 1 year ago Blåbär opened the doors at 3a Lacy Road. Crazy.
We will be celebrating with some fab events and offers for you guys - so keep reading!
But first, we have had a lot of First's so thought we would mention a few!!!
FIRST INJURY - My (Sandras) dad had to be rushed to hospital during the build, having accidentally stabbed himself with a scalpel in the arm. It ended with a big appreciation for the NHS and a story to be told many times.
FIRST FAMILY (STAFF) MEMBER - Caroline, our manager, what would we have done without you?! Here we are interviewing before we opened, what you cant see if that she is sat on a toilet (to clarify it is not in use).
FIRST CUSTOMER - Chris walked through the doors at 7.56 (we opened at 8) on the 8th of February and ordered a Cappuccino. All our work and late nights and there he was! Mind blowing. During the past year we have had a lot of interesting morning conversations with Cappuccino Chris (as he will be forever known as) - thank you for coming!
FIRST PRODUCT - Who would have guessed that the first product we sold was a Candle?! Very Hygge. Specifically it was the Skandinavisk HAV (meaning sea) candle which is still one of our best sellers, find it available here for £24.99.
FIRST EVENT - Was our music night in April, Northern Lights Session, where our very own Elina performed beautifully @elinaofficialmusic
The Northern Lights Session is now a monthly event, the first Thursday of the month, and you can buy tickets online or in store. See all our events here.
FIRST BIG REVIEW - Was in Elle Decoration, where Blåbär was listed as Interior of the Week which was amazing!!!! See the full review on their website here
These are just a few of all the memories we have. We hope you also have many memories from us.
Sooo now to celebrate our anniversary and to create more memories!!
