New Shop Opening Soon!

I’ve been showing pictures here and there of our new wee retail shop that we are opening up – it’s been a month of putting up shelving, painting and general puttering around. Now we are pretty much ready to go, so, without further ado, our official opening date will be DECEMBER 1st! We will be […]

What a special spot!!!! You have inspired me with our Bambo organization in this house…..Where did you find the clothes rack?

My mind is curious as to what the quote is on the wall 😉

Thank you for sharing as always <3

I would so love to come up this weekend to support your new venture. It looks like a lovely location and facing the water seems to be the ideal view if you ask me. xoox Susan

I always wanted to go to the Pacific Northwest. Bamboletta land here I come!

Eeeeeeep!!! Need to get my Vancouver Island weekend vacay all planned out. I’m giddy with glee, I tell ya.

Wow! This is so exciting for you, Christina, and all the Bambo folks. My Island family has moved to the Kootenays, so sadly my trips to the area will be few and far between. Wish I could be there to see it! xo

Thank you for all of your support! We hope to see and meet all of you 🙂

Charleen, the racks were custom built for us and the quote is by Kathe Kruse. I don’t know it off by heart, but if C sees this post, maybe she can relay it to you 🙂

And ‘Hi’ Susan!!!!


Janet Ya Ya Westelle - November 28, 2012 - 9:06 pm

Oh…I am SO happy to hear you quoted Kathe Kruse…
She is who I felt Christina’s start reminded me most of!…I must try and travel to meet you all too. I would love the view of the boats…More boy dolls are needed and doll sized toy boats would be wonderful and little bears and horses on wheels…and polo horses on riding sticks…and child sized bambo tea sets…get busy ladies…quilts and doll furniture…oh so many ways to grow!!! I need a coffe mug…I love colorful ones…Congrats! <3

My aunt and I took a walk around trying to find it… no luck. We will try again after it opens. I stop in the bay often for family meals.

Linzy, I have a feeling we will be easier to find once our sandwich is out 🙂

Hoping we can make a trip one day and see this amazing shop in person!

Frock of the Month Club…is back!

We did a little tester in the summer of something new we wanted to try called the ‘Frock of the Month’ club, or ‘FOM’ as some of you may have seen on our Facebookpage and thought, ‘Huh?’. We offered a one time payment subscription to purchase one complete, exclusive outfit a month (for 4 months) that would […]

Oh Snap! Frock of the Month is back!

Renee - November 27, 2012 - 9:14 am

YAY! We LOVED Frock of the Month Club!!

Kimberlee Power - November 27, 2012 - 9:40 am

I want one. 15 inch FOM.

Karen W. - November 27, 2012 - 10:19 am

Frock of the month, wine of the month, oh, life is good 😉

Staying Connected

I know, I know I keep gripping about how much Facebook as changed for the worse. It pains me to get emails from customers saying that the don’t ‘see’ us anymore and miss certain things ,like our photo contest, because we don’t show up in Facebook feed anymore. See, Facebook has changed things for businesses. […]

That would be an awesome idea to have 1 bamboletta doll to go from person to petson and visit many different places and take pictures of all those places and ER could all send souvenirs back with the dolls. That would be so cool!!!! I would live to be a stop along her way!

Christin Taylor - November 23, 2012 - 7:34 pm

That ER was suppose to be a we (my phone changed it on its own)

Maegan Davies - November 23, 2012 - 7:38 pm

I love the wandering dolly idea!

Sue Brayton - November 23, 2012 - 7:54 pm

We have lots of winter in North Dakota!

Skye C - November 23, 2012 - 8:26 pm

Okay, I adore the wandering Winter idea! That is so precious! I made a special list for Bamboletta and a couple of other pages I wanted to make sure I saw. So I can see when there are updates and just click the list. 🙂 Facebook is annoying!

Annette - November 23, 2012 - 8:37 pm

I think you should call it the Hobo-Bambo. ☺ Just out lookin’ for a place to stay the night.

Barbara H. - November 23, 2012 - 9:56 pm

Just signed up for the newsletter! And I’ve got you guys pinned on my list on facebook so that I don’t miss too much of your stuff that way, but will love having the newsletter as a back up!
And the gypsy doll idea sounds fantabulous, Willow would get a kick out of that! We are participating in a “Flat Stanley” project right now and Willow is going to send one of her own along with the one we are supposed to re-mail as a hijacker of sorts… that way she will get postcards too from all of the fab stops. 🙂

Laurie - November 24, 2012 - 8:53 am

Lovely idea Christina! I can only imagine that the wandering Bambo will bring as much cheer to everyone whose life it touches as did Stella the Bambo gnome when she traveled her adventures. I was so honored to have her. And she brought a level of activity to our home that was fun and vibrant…

Bon voyage Bambo!! See the world and share your love.
