Good Morning. For all those who still have some shopping to do, Venue will be open today from 10am-4pm. :)
We are thankful for the abundance of talent we're able to support and thankful for the customers who have passion for this talent. We're thankful for all we have, but our thoughts are with those who have lost everything this year. Tomorrow, on Black Friday, Venue will be donating a portion of our proceeds to the Methow Valley Long Term Recovery organization. The needs for our neighbors in the north are ongoing due to the devasation from wildfires and flash foods of 2014. One of our own artist at Venue has been keeping us updated as many of her family and friends have lost everything, but their strength and courage to rebuild, replant and reestablish their lives. If you shop with us tomorrow, you will be helping our efforts in supporting their efforts. Until then, enjoy all the love and friendship, and laughter that surrounds you today.
For the first time in 9 years, Venue is HIRING. :) We are looking to fill several part time positions. If you're interested, please email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
Should we stay OPEN on the Fourth or should we CLOSE? OPEN vs CLOSED. It's been the big question here in Ballard. Well ... being that the Fourth is on a Friday, we compromised. Venue will be OPEN from 11am - 2:30pm, so that those who also have the day off can do a bit of shopping, and our staff can still enjoy the festivities with family, neighbors and friends. Everyone is happy. Have fun & play safe.
Most of you know how at Venue we emphasize the person behind the product; a chance to know the artist's story of the item you are interested in. Well, from time to time those who work at Venue get to hear the story behind why a customer buys the item they're attracted to. This week, especially, so many people came in buying a gift for a graduate, or in many cases, a graduate found some lovely jewelry they wanted to wear during their ceremony, and WE got to hear their story. We are so proud of all you who have worked so hard to achieve the goals you set out to achieve. Your dedication and discipline are truly impressive and we know the world will be a better place when you take on your dreams. Thanks for letting us be a part of your experience. Wishing you all the best with your new endeavors. -The Venue Staff & Artisans
