INCREDIBLE

Today was an exceptional day. The Times Union article about Silver Fox architectural salvage and home decor and the publicity behind the Valentine's Day special event resulted in hundreds of new people exploring our venue. There were times when the crowds were so thick, moving about was difficult. People were on their cellphones telling friends and family "you have to come down and see this place." The energy was phenomenal and I talked to each and every vendor and they were all pleased to see so many new people. Of course our regular and appreciated customers showed up which made for a great balance. A huge thank you goes to Laura from Bluebird books for organizing the Valentine's Day Love and Chocolate day. Perry was working the new soup and sandwich bar and "called for help" as the crowds pushed him to capacity. Our resident artist Amy, quickly switched roles and hungry bellies were quieted quickly. Comments on the food have been positive and Camille made her wonderful vegetarian Chile. We hope for the same tomorrow.

I have to agree. The Warehouse had an incredible air of excitement on Saturday. It was the place to be. Kudos to the bakers from the SCRUFF organization. They are phenomenal cooks and their packaging was perfect for Valentines Day. The Bun in The Oven had chocolate covered strawberries that were to die for. We spoke with many newcomers who were pleased to have found us. Lets hope they each go back to work on Monday and tell 3 friends, who tell 3 friends, who tell 3 friends...................

It was pretty amazing there last Saturday; the people I brought with me were amazed at both the diversity and vibrancy of the place, as well as most people remembering my name, even though it'd been months since I'd been there. They were definitely converted!

And I have to say, the chocolates were absolutely divine. They were a genuinely sensual treat: beautiful to look at, to touch, smell, and definitely to taste!
