The calendar is certainly busy this week. Pi Day (3.14) was yesterday, today is the Ides of March, and Friday brings St. Patrick's Day. No need to beware of the Ides, as this week on What's Up Wednesday, we're going to concentrate on the Luck of the Irish Giveaway and a couple of brand new items available for pre-order.
We have located a couple of really special and unique items for you. The first is Mickey and Minnie floating along in a heart-shaped gas balloon. Complete with sand bags on the side of the gondola, these two could float for days, just like the gas balloons that will be competing in the 66th Gordon Bennett event in Albuquerque come October 7th.
The second entrant in the Jim Shore Balloon collection is Snoopy. While the passengers in the gondola are pretty lightweight, with Snoopy lying on top the balloons, they may not travel much farther than your home.
These Jim Shore designs are beautifully hand-painted and crafted from high-quality stone resin with intricate styling and attention to detail.
They are available for PRE-ORDER. In other words, you can order them today, but they will not ship until after April 1st. No fooling!
For those of you keeping track, the Luck of the Irish giveaway is continuing as we pass the halfway point of March and the promotion. Susan D. of OK purchased a couple of lucky horseshoes that we featured last week and won a free wind chime. Another big winner will be chosen from yesterday's orders. Remember, everyone gets a free gift with an order of $25 or more, with an extra special gift sent to extra lucky customers on random days. And you have until the end of the month to take advantage of our Luck of the Irish giveaway.
Thanks for your support of Balloon Fiesta and Balloon Fiesta Stuff. Happy St. Pat's Day, and we'll talk to you next week.
