When I found out there was going to be a store so close to us, I immediately went to 16 Handles Facebook Page and inquired when they would be opening! As soon as they opened, we went, and as time went on I totally forgot that I had posted on their page, much less made an impact enough for them to look me up until earlier this week when I logged onto The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch Facebook page to find a message from Sean Gunner. Sean is the Outreach Manager from the Glenmont 16 Handles Store! He contacted me because they were going to be having a community appreciation day and wanted to let me know about it and wondered if I would be willing to share the event with you. Of course I said yes! It does happen to be on the same weekend of my big 5-0 birthday so what more perfect time for me to head over there and celebrate!
