Well, Kitsch's Grand Opening weekend has come and gone, but WOW, we are still reeling from the excitement and genuine enthusiasm showered upon our little corner of Ghent. Hundreds of people turned out this past weekend to welcome Kitsch into the big scary world of retail, and they had nothing but nice things to say! All of the ladies behind Kitsch just want to take a moment to say "thank you" to all of the amazingly beautiful and wonderful people for coming out and supporting this crazy little idea of ours. You have no idea how much we appreciate it, or how much you have helped all of the crafters and artists in our shop by purchasing local, handmade goods. In fact, that very sentiment was heard over and over all weekend and it seems that everyone can appreciate supporting our local economy.
We would also like to thank all of the great folks who came out to help entertain and mesmerize the masses with their talents and skill. Thank you to Skye Zentz, Hipnotic Belly Dance, the Brocket siblings, Cynthia Anderson, Hazel Rowe, Just Cupcakes and all of our amazing artists for making our grand opening truly an event to be seen and experienced.
Don't think for a second though that Kitsch is finished, far from it! We are now in the planning and scheduling stages of our very own series of Kitsch Classes for adults and not-quite-adults, and we hope to see everyone there! These classes will be a great opportunity for you to finally learn a skill that you've always wanted to try, or freshen up an old skill that may have gotten a little rusty. Stay tuned for a listing of classes here on the site!
