We made it to the end!

of the holiday show season, that is…

Despite the long hours of preparation and endless amounts of coffee (venti non-fat no-whip mochas to be exact) the December shows were a huge success.  We’d love to thank all our new fans and those who made the trek to our outings, especially this past weekend’s rainy holiday bazaar at Mercado.   Check out some of the action below!
