This year was nuts, but it gave us a chance to work on some things that we otherwise wouldn't have had time for. And while I could have done without the overwhelming amount of stress, I will forever be thankful for the positive things that came out of this shit storm.
We spent some time making improvements to our building, which now includes a beautiful mural that faces Trowbridge St. We're now printing our own fabric in-house which spawned a graphic design internship program through AAESA, as well as working with multiple freelance designers to add to our unique patterns. We redid our website, redid our POS system to match the website, and got our rewards program up and running. Plus we've donated over 35,000 face masks throughout the pandemic, and over $6,000 in direct support to Black Lives Matter, Grassroots Law Project, The Loveland Foundation, Allied Media Projects, Color of Change, and Birth Detroit.
I am beyond grateful for the support of our community, customers, my friends and family, and of course my amazing team at The Sassy Olive. We look forward to what this new year has in store!
But we're still dealing with COVID, so unfortunately we're moving our beloved Stuff-a-Bag Sale online this year. The good news is that we're ready, and we've been busting our butts pre-stuffing bags that you can buy right on our website! There will be 8-12 headbands in each bag, they will include a variety of styles and patterns and will only cost $25! We know it's not the same as stuffing the bags yourself (especially since we can't guarantee you won't receive duplicates if you order multiple bags), but the bags are still stuffed and it's still a heck of a deal!
The sale will run January 8-10, so be ready to stuff your online cart with Stuff-a-Bags!
