I still remember very clearly how my heart pounded in my chest on that winter day when I received that first phone call from Bloomingdale's back in January of 2013. I mean, SERIOUSLY, BLOOMINGDALE'S! I have to admit that there was a piece of me that wanted to know who was cruel enough to play such a terrible joke on me but LUCKILY my curiosity got the better of me and I took at least 10 very deep breaths and returned the call. Sparklefly Candle Company candles were invited to be in the swag bags and at the Pre-Wedding Wedding Event to be held locally. I thought, WHAT?! You want me THERE and you need WHAT and it's WHEN? These are the thoughts that were going through my head but all that came out of my mouth was, "Thank you for thinking of me, I would love to!" And that's exactly what was in my heart. And in times like these you....
HAVE TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
It was an amazing experience! I cannot put into words the excitement I felt walking into this absolutely gorgeous and prestigious store on the day of the event and knowing that I had been part of a select few vendors invited to display there goods in the store. As if that wasn't wonderful enough, the staff could not have been more accommodating or friendly to work with. My anxiety levels began to lower as they made me feel so comfortable and allowed me to feel like I was meant to be there.
If you don't ask, the answer is always, "No".
As the evening came to an end, I almost felt a little like Cinderella leaving the ball at midnight. I couldn't possibly let this experience end here. I wanted to be more like Ariel and follow my dreams, and take my chances. By doing so, and simply asking, and then working on it, we have run 3 more promotions.
Tthe first was a Valentine promotion that following month.
The second promotion was for Mother's Day
And most recently, actually going on right now at Bloomingdale's in Roosevelt Field, Garden City, NY is the following promo.
I would absolutely LOVE to be able to say that my products are for sale on Bloomingdale's shelves across the country. Believe me when I say that I will continue to chase that dream, but until then, I am having great fun and I am so honored to be working with them. Dreams do come true.
