Exciting Giveaway – 12 Days of Christmas and 12 Days of Freebies!

Happy December, folks! Lots of exciting things are going on over here at the Grey Tabby! This last weekend, we set up a booth at the 18th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting in Downtown Anaheim and I gotta say, I had a BLAST! I got to meet a lot of great people that I’ve interacted with online (like Instagram) and ran into some old friends, too! I was also happy to see lots of people shopping locally for their Christmas gifts, too! It warms my heart to know that people love supporting handmade and small businesses!

Here are a few pictures of my set up:

I loved it so much that I’m going to (hopefully) be a vendor at the Downtown Anaheim Farmers Markets. I’ll post more when I have the details but the markets are every Thursday afternoon. Anyway, I’m also going to be set up at a couple more shows this weekend. On Friday, December 7th, I’ll be in Long Beach for their “Let it Glow” First Friday. I’ll be set up in front of the Coffee Bean at 405 Atlantic Avenue. I’ll be there from 7pm – 10pm. You can RSVP on Facebook here.

I’ll also be set up on Sunday, December 9th from 1pm – 4pm at the Stella Luna Yoga Studio in Cypress, CA. The address is 9191 Valley View Street in Cypress. I hope to see you there!

Now onto the freebies!!!
