Thank-you! // Merci!

What a day! Thanks to you, our visitors, vendors, sponsors, volunteers and friends, the very first Bohème Hudson was a huge success. The sun was shining (at least in the morning hours!), there was a gorgeous spread of handmade goods from an incredibly talented group of vendors, and visitors had a great time shopping, sipping on drinks, nibbling on empanadas and other treats. It was a wonderful community event filled with friends, families, kids and pets. Not only did we have a great turnout, but the weather managed to behave until almost exactly 4pm! We now have five lucky raffle winners and lots of great ideas and plans for next year.

We'd like to extend some very special thanks and appreciation to our fabulous vendors and sponsors for choosing to join us for our very first year, for making the raffle bags so packed full of goodies, and for making our event so worthy of all the excitement and fun!

A huge thank-you to our amazing gang of volunteers: Sonja and Hannah who came all the way from Ottawa to help, Marcia, Sandi, Emeline and Marie-Eve for pitching in, lending a hand, sharing their enthusiasm, offering advice and suggestions, and for making Bohème even better with their presence and experience!

We also have endless and undying thank-yous to Nancy and Mavis from 2 Barn Owls for their tireless help, advice, patience, suggestions and assistance - their enthusiasm, support and encouragement permitted the idea of Bohème to grow in the first place.

And finally, a personal heartfelt thank-you to my dear husband Christian - while I was busy figuring everything out and learning by doing, he was patient, helpful, supportive, solved a ton of problems and made sure that things ran as smoothly possible this past Saturday!

Thank-you all!! See you next year <3 -- Anile

Quelle belle journée! Grâce à vous, nos visiteurs, exposants, commanditaires, bénévoles et amis, la première édition de Bohème Hudson a été un énorme succès. Le soleil brillait (au moins, dans la matinée!), il y avait un étalage magnifique de produits fait main par nos exposants talentueux, et nos visiteurs étaient emballés par leur magasinage tout en sirotant des boissons, grignotant des empanadas et autres collations. Ce fût un évènement communautaire superbe rempli d'amis, de familles, d'enfants et d'animaux de compagnie. En plus d'une belle participation, la météo a réussi à coopérer avec nous jusqu'à presque 16h00! Nous avons maintenant cinq gagnants chanceux pour la tombola et nous sommes bourrés de bonnes idées et de projets pour l'année prochaine.

Nous tenons à remercier nos superbes exposants et commanditaires d'avoir choisi de se joindre à nous pour notre toute première année, d'avoir rempli nos sacs cadeaux pleins de beaux prix et d'avoir contribué à la super belle ambiance de la journée!

Un gros merci à tous!! À la prochaine <3 -- Anile
