IT'S HAPPENING SOON!! KPEA SUMMER OPEN HOUSE aka SUMMER SOIREE!!
The annual KPea Summer Soiree is an event that we all look forward to every year. It has become a tradition for our clients and for our local friends in our small town. This event is held in our shop in our hometown of Elmore, Ohio. We are just off of a major interstate highway (Ohio Turnpike) so it has always worked out for people from a distance away to drive in as well. We have our shop available for three days of shopping and fun. Thursday June 22nd is our VIP Day, Friday June 23rd is ticketed shopping on the hour, and Saturday is ticketed shopping in the morning hours with OPEN HOUSE SHOPPING from 1:30PM to 4PM. (More information about ticketed days is posted below)
The Soiree event is amazing for so many reasons, but for us to meet our lovely clients in person might be our favorite one. The other amazing part of this event is that we create short amounts of many, many different dress designs. Everything from vintage inspired to character inspired there is always a different choice for everyone. We also experiment with new shapes every year too - this year is no exception! Be prepared to see two different shapes released at our soiree. Here is a peek!
Both of those pictured above will be event pieces and both are new shapes! Be expecting to see other designs in these shapes at the event as well! Below is a picture of our design wall! All of the pieces shown below are dresses that will be offered at the event!
Here is some important information for anyone who might want to come, or who is wondering what this "Shopping party" entails:
Ticketed Shopping Days
These days are June 23rd and June 24th
- Friday June 23rd Times: 9AM, 10AM, 11AM, NOON, 1PM, 2PM, 3PM, 4PM
- Saturday June 24th Times: 9AM, 10AM, 11AM, NOON
- Ticketed Shoppers will have one hour to come in and see all that we have to offer in shop during their time slot. Shopping times will begin at 10AM and the final time is 3PM (There is no advantage to any particular time as we bring new items out every hour)
- Tickets for the event are $5 (we do have flat rate shipping on the site of $5 FYI)
- We charge for tickets for many reasons, one is to hold your spot. The second is to make the ticket NOT transferable. We do not want tickets re-sold for more than what we are asking. We will have a waiting area available as well for in between times if you need
- There are limits to the tickets. Shoppers can have a max of two shopping times per day. This is just to make it fair and provide everyone a chance to shop with us!
- We also will have limits of how many pieces you can purchase, this is usually a high number and will accommodate everyone while being fair to all shoppers
Ticketed shoppers will be added to a Facebook group which we (KPea) will admin so that we can help answer questions, take requests, etc. Expect this group to happen within two weeks of ticket purchase. We WILL MAIL ACTUAL TICKETS.
OPEN SHOPPING DAY/TIME
- Open Shopping will be held Saturday June 24th from 1:30 PM to 4 PM
- You do not need a ticket for this shopping time we will let as many people at a time in that the event will allow. Usually if we have a line of people waiting, everyone can get in the shop within a half hour of opening to the public.
- This is not a crazy shopping event, and everything is very relaxed so no need to worry! We will have lots of inventory and helpful hands available
- NEW INVENTORY WILL BE RELEASED DURING THIS OPEN TIME - This is not a disadvantage, coming during this time period, but keep in mind any previous inventory will have limited sizes available or be completely sold out.
VIP KPEA EXPERIENCE THURSDAY JUNE 22nd
- We will have VIP slots available for those interested in a one on one design session with the KPea Team
- These slots will provide the ticket holder with a half hour design appointment with the KPea Team. The time slot will include two new one of a kind KPea dresses (one woven skirt type and one knit type)
- Ticket holders can make fabric requests to email@example.com before the appointment and may also bring their own fabric choices if so desired
- ADDITIONAL dresses for the design session are available and will be listed separately. The additional dress listing will include two pieces (one woven skirt type and one knit type) this will not add time to your VIP design session
- The VIP session will also include a Thursday shopping time of 5 PM - this is the first "time slot" for shopping
- The VIP session will also include a time slot pass for any one time on Friday and any one time on Saturday
- VIP Sessions are $125 -- Additional Dress spots are $85
