Hello and welcome to this weather roller coaster we call Spring! Here in Michigan you never know from one day to another what the tempwill be. I guess we just need to embrace it and eat some chocolate...(no idea why I said that) Anyway...keep your winter coat next to your flip flops for a few more week guys!!
A few weeks ago we opened the doors to our much larger retail space and we couldn't have been more pleased with friends new and old that came out to embrace us. We have so many good things going on at the shop and so many things planned for the weeks and months ahead. To keep up with everything UGM related you should be following us on FB and Instagram. We also send a news letter out every week with quick updates.
Our workshop schedule is constantly being updated as we try to keep 8 weeks ahead full for you. We occasionally throw a workshop in randomly that's why it's super important to be following us a couple of ways. Click here for our schedule of workshops...
We have a few events coming and you absolutely should NOT miss them. The first big one is April 26th and we are calling it our "Calendar Collide"....WHY... you ask? We basically overbooked the day and we are just going to roll with it...the more the merry...right? So let's talk about what's going on that day....first..the KitchenAid Senior PGA trophy will be at the shop to celebrate the upcoming golf event that's planned at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor for May 22-27. The trophy viewing event will start at 6pm going until 9pm April 26th. During this time we will have a workshop going on with Farmhouse Planter Boxes. You must register for this workshop. We will also have a couple of guests that evening as well. We will have a rep coming to educate us on CBD Oil from Hemp Works. All of your questions can be answered this evening as well as being able to purchase some that night. And the entire day...10-9pm.. will be a Jewelry Trunk show with the latest spring line of Plunder Jewels.
Ohhhh and during the evening we will have someone painting a complete piece of furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and will answer any of your paint questions you may have. We have all colors and waxes in stock for you.
Something new for the shop will be our hands on Succulent Bar. We will have all kinds of succulents to chose from so you can create a special potted treat for yourself or for a Mother's Day gift. You will be able to create a one of a kind gift using eclectic container (or bring your own) with addition to cute little quirky critters. This is a hands on-get your hands dirty kind of event so come prepared to play! This event will be May 11th 10-5pm and Satruday 10-3pm all day and you come and go as you please...no reservation required.
Our second big event is May 19th and this will be UGM's 1 year Birthday celebration. The day will have plenty of new treasures for you to gobble up, drawings, special sales on winter clothes, gift basket giveaway, and all kinds of other goodness you don't want to miss. More to come...stay tuned.
This past year has been a dream come true and we couldn't be more thrilled. Thanks to you, our loyal friends and customers!
See you all soon!
