On Thursday, August 25th we hosted our 4th Annual Tailgate Party & Fall Preview! It wouldn’t be a true tailgate party in the south if it wasn’t H.O.T. but, thankfully it did not rain and we had a super turnout! Thank you to Paige Phillips Photography for the wonderful photos to remember this fun night!
Janie met Clay Rice when she was at Atlanta Market in July and invited him to do a book signing that night and he agreed! Then a couple weeks later we got the news that he would also do his famous silhouettes! We were so excited and started spreading the word. Well, it didn’t take long and we filled up every appointment. Then he said if we could have somebody run his credit card machine, we could double book the appointments! What?! That means he was doing a silhouette every 2 minutes! Wow, he was super fast and didn’t put down the scissors for 2 hours straight! A big thank you to our girl Emma for helping Mr. Rice run the credit cards so he could keep cutting! Such a fascinating process and we were thrilled at the response!
You know it wouldn’t be a good party if we didn’t feed you! Theresa Adams brought samples of her Adams Apple Eatables and Nicole Storey of Izzabeee’s brought yummy Gamecock and Clemson Tiger Cupcakes! Janie made her popular Columbia College Crackers and we served a variety of the gourmet products we carry!
Our friend Deborah with Charmingly Southern Vintage Rentals set up a neat tailgate spread with picnic baskets and vintage quilts! Please contact her for any vintage rental needs you may have for an upcoming event!!
This year we partnered with Pink Palmetto Boutique and Designs by April. They were available to do onsite vinyl monogramming and discuss the many options they can provide for personalizing items from Winston’s Gift Shop! They also set up a pop up shop on our front lawn!
We appreciate everyone that came out and hope you enjoyed yourselves! See ya next year!!
