Let the Festivities Begin!

November 11, 2023

Let’s the festivities begin! A celebratory day awaits around all things Watson Kennedy today. It is our first Holiday Open House of the season at our First & Spring shop beginning at 10 o’clock this morning running throughout the day until 5:30. Bubbly & sparkling apple cider will be poured, music will fill the air. The shops are absolutely brimming with ‘just the right gifts’ to start your shopping and check a few or many off your gift list. It is also the kick-off our 25th WK anniversary celebrations. Stay tuned throughout the day for posts and reels with giveaways. It is so important to me that folks from near and far feel the love from us today. Gratitude is a top of the list feeling around these festivities. We thrived all these years because of you—our kind, stylish, beyond wonderful customers from around the globe. I get teary just typing this. It really has been and continues to be one incredible adventure with all of you, and in many ways I just feel like we are just getting started! A million THANKS for all the love & loyalty shown to us over these last 25 years.

OK, let’s get this party started! All the giveaways today will be centered on our feed on Instagram. If you read about them on FB or the blog or some other social media channels, keep in mind that you need to commenting on the Watson Kennedy IG page to be entered into the drawings, raffle and giveaways. The first giveaway is our jaunty WK25 tote. The first 25 customers to ring up a purchase today either on-line or at one of our locations will get a commemorative tote. Made for us in New Hampshire, they have a prep vibe to them, and are perfect for market shopping, a day at the beach or just about any fun outing. In our signature greens! This giveaway begins today at 10 a.m. Seattle time.

Another giveaway that all of you can partake in that requires no purchase at all. It is for a $250 custom Watson Kennedy Care Package made just for this event. Simply leave a comment on this post about your favorite shop experience, or a few words about a beloved WK item you enjoy. One entry per person. Two care packages will be given away. The drawing for the two winners will be tonight at 5 o’clock Seattle time.

Stay tuned throughout the day for more giveaways. If you are in the Seattle area, I so hope you can make it to the Holiday Open House. Artist Jeanne McKay Hartmann will be painting from 1 to 3. We will be wrap, wrap, wrapping away. Our new wrapping paper arrived yesterday! Talk about good timing. It is the first image on this post. Calligrapher extraordinaire, artist Bernard Maisner has a bit of his magical work that is part of our WK25 wrap. I was smiling from ear to ear wrapping gifts for customers with it yesterday. THANK YOU all for making this journey/experience these last 25 years so awesome and meaningful. XX
