What's Up Wednesday November 1, 2023 #92

This week on What's Up Wednesday, more consolidation and now Pilot items are available to everyone.

As we've been telling you for the past couple of weeks, we've been bringing inventory back from the field locations, counting and stocking them in the gift shop and here online. All of our available retail pins and clothing are now as restocked and they are going to be. This week it's time to put the Pilot and Crew related items up for sale. 

These items are pilot gifts or items that were made available exclusively to pilots during the 2023 event. And now they are available to you. Quantities are limited so don't wait if you see something you'd like. And no, we won't be restocking any of these items. 

The simplest way to view the selection is to click on the Pilot/Crew category. When you do, part of what you'll see are pilot jackets. We have 4 versions, the Event Pilot, the Special Shapes Pilot, the Los Globitos Pilot and the Gordon Bennett jacket.

Pilots participating in Balloon Fiesta are recognized with pins for the different sessions they participate in. Usually these pins are a variation of a corresponding session. There are a number of these pilot pins and a patch now available.

And our officials and pilots are given gifts to thank them for participating in the event and different sessions. There is an entire collection of items, including weather stations, flight bags, even Apple Air tags and Sony headphones. We had a few extra of each of these and they are now for sale. Very limited quantities of all of these items, so shop early and buy it if you like it. They will not be restocked!

Next week on Whats' Up Wednesday, we have one more round of consolidation to work through. That means more online new product. Then it will be time starting talk about holidays and sales and year end stuff and before you know it, it will be 2024.  By the way, Balloon Fiesta 2023 is just 338 days away.

Thanks for your support of Balloon Fiesta and Balloon Fiesta Stuff.
