This week on What's Up Wednesday, an Eclipse pin update and shoppers beware, there are only 30 shopping days left in 2023 at Balloon Fiesta Stuff.

Let's start with the good news. The solar eclipse pin and the Marvin the Martian pin have arrived and are being shipped as you read this. We're working through the orders as fast as we can. Watch your inbox for an email from us when your order ships, or is ready for pick-up. Thanks for your patience as we deal with shipping more than 5000 pins that were pre-ordered after the end of Balloon Fiesta. 

Of course that begs the question, do you have any left over and available for purchase? or can I still purchase them? The answer is no. We ordered enough to cover the pre-orders and are moving on to 2024 merchandise. Enjoy your pre-order and we're sorry if you missed out on this exclusive and very popular item. 

Speaking of not waiting to buy, there are now just 30 days left to shop, online or in the gift shop at Balloon Fiesta Stuff for 2023. December 15 will be the last day to shop and have your order shipped this year. Starting on December 18, our online store will close for 2 weeks to conduct year-end inventory and processing. In addition our offices will be closed between Christmas and New Year's. We'll reopen online on January 1, 2024 and our gift shop reopens on January 2. 

While we're looking at shopping dates, you'll want to mark December 9 and 10 on your calendar. That's when our annual Black Friday in December sale takes place this year. More details coming in the weeks ahead.

Finally, a bonus new addition to the store. Personal First Aid Kits. We ordered a number of these for distribution to various groups at Balloon Fiesta and we have some left and are making them available to you. The pouch measures 8 x 5 x 1 and is perfect to keep in your car, truck or even your balloon. We don't have a lot left, so grab a couple today.

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