May 5-6 was CityZine Festival weekend! Local Ghent businesses went the extra mile to show what they had to offer. Equipped with a map you could navigate from one hotspot to the next, while enjoying the historical and cultural heritage Ghent has to offer. Our helen b & friends shop was one of the hotspots. The sun was shining and so were we! We set up a tiny guerilla action and offered stock sale items, which drew an amazing crowd to our little shop.
We were overwhelmed by all the smiles and happy faces who all seemed to enjoy the atmosphere in our tiny helen b & friends shop. People from all over the world were drawn in. On our cobblestoned sidewalk you could find a cardboard box where young and old could let their fantasy run free, with amazing results!
But apart from all this happy news, we also have a sad announcement to make. Our last monkey cup went over the counter. This endangered species is now only available on our monkey bread boards. Stock is limited, so hurry up if you want one!
The result of this sunny weekend?
- A world record number of visitors in our helen b & friends shop.
- We handed out no fewer than 600 trapeze girls stickers. Have you spotted them?
- The monkey cup is totally sold out.
- There's only a few items available in our endangered species list of helen b items.
