Minimoc Warehouse Sale with Little & Lively

IMG_5730.PNG

Saturday, October 1 from 10am - 2pm

ADDRESS

2238 Queen Street, unit 147. Abbotsford BC

We are in an industrial complex. It's a big blue building labelled 2238.

 

PARKING

**PLEASE park on Queen street and walk into the complex. We have very limited parking space inside the gate. Once you go through the gate, turn right immediately and go around the building to the left, our unit will be open and you can’t miss us from here. ( Plus we’ll put up signs)

Tid Bits of information:

1. We will be accepting Cash and Credit Cards, (MasterCard, Visa, American Express.)

2. ALL discounted items purchased are FINAL SALE

3. Prices are non-negotiable. Minimoc Prices range from $15 - $40 with the majority in the $25-$30 range. 

4. There will be some room inside the building to line up, but there is a chance that the line up will continue outside so keep that in mind when deciding on what to wear. 

5. Full price (non warehouse sale) mocs and shoes will NOT be available at our warehouse sale.

6. Moccasins and Shoes will be organized by size and sale prices are labelled individually.

7. All the items that are out, are all the items that are available (we will have more than double the amount of our last warehouse sale).

8. There is one checkout counter for both Minimoc and Little and Lively. You can pay for both shops in one purchase. 

9. If you have an account at minimoc.ca - it will make your checkout process easier and faster!

10. Some people like to come early ... like REALLY early. And that's great! But if this is not you, we encourage you to come around noon. The line up will have most likely died down by then and we will have SO much that there is bound to still be some amazing deals to be had!

Guidelines:

1. The sale is on a 'first come first serve' basis. 

2. Please do not spend any more time than needed in the warehouse. Once you are ready to pay, head straight to the cashier line.

3. We will be implementing a '10 pair maximum' rule. 

4. If you are purchasing items for another person who is not present at the sale, we ask that you refrain from making phone calls while inside the warehouse to see what they want. Contact the person you are buying for BEFORE you are in the building and find out their top picks, and runner ups!

5. If you change your mind about a pair of shoes and you take them away from a table, please give them back to someone in a Happy Camper Minimoc Apron or leave them at the checkout and we will put them back for others to shop.

6. We don't have a lot of extra space for strollers inside the warehouse so if you do bring your child(ren) along, please have them in a carrier. We may ask you to park your stroller outside if you do bring it along.

7. Lastly, HAVE FUN! 

** If you're planning a day out in Abbotsford, here are some of our favourite local businesses that we love supporting! **

Old Hand Coffee * Our friends at Old Hand caffeinate us on the daily and their treats are pretty great too!

Raven's Brewing Company *The head brewer at Raven's is a close friend and makes some extremely tasty beer!

Spruce Collective * The very first store to carry our mocs! They also have a great kids section, amongst a sea of homewares, clothing and vintage finds. 

Cobblestone Kitchenware *My Mom's kitchen store which has an insane amount of gadgets and necessities for your kitchen!

Field House Brewing *They have a play fort for the kiddos to be entertained while you enjoy some local eats and beer!

Duft & Co Bakehouse *Every baked good that comes out of that place is to die for. The croissants and cinnamon buns are a favourite and on Saturdays they have doughnuts!

Photoshoot: Lepp Farm Market

When the weather is cool and crisp and nature is displaying an amazing amount of colour, you take the opportunity to capture it!

We wanted some photos taken of some of our newer styles of shoes last month, so when Julie reached out to us, we were thrilled! The timing was perfect and we loved having one of our local Farm Markets on board with the idea. 

Take a look at some of our favourites!

Gift Guide - For Her

With the Christmas season approaching, we wanted to highlight some of our favourite (mostly local) products that we think would make great gifts! Today, we are focusing on 'Her'. Whether you're spoiling your mom, sister, Aunt, daughter, Grandma or friend, there is something here that is bound to be a favourite. 

1. W3LL People Bio Brightener Stick - This is a great stocking stuffer. Just a dab of this in a few key spots and your face instantly brightens! We recommend that this is given from a sister, mom or bff though... unless she specifically asks for this type of product. No woman wants to be told she looks tired from her significant other. 

2. Bebe de Luxe Coconut & Oat Milk Bath - Made locally, from 100% certified organic ingredients. Leaves the skin feeling moisturized and smells amazing! Natural. Vegan. No nasties. 

3. Cocolico Chocolate - Who doesn't love chocolate? Plus Cocolico is a Vancouver company!

4. Minimoc Keychain Tassel - Another great stocking stuffer. These are great to add a little flare to your zippers and keys and they come in a variety of colours. Made right here at our warehouse.

5. Erin Templeton Purse - These purses are simple, stylish and locally made. 

6. Leah Alexandra Ring - You can never go wrong with a simple piece of jewelry. This ring is a favourite, but there are tons of amazing other pieces by Leah Alexandra as well, including some sterling silver options. All made locally!

7. Nicole Bridger Top - Clothing can be a tough item to give as a gift but this top would look great on any shape or size and go with any style. Plus, it's a local brand!

8. Woodlot Candle - Thinking of giving a scented candle as a gift? Try a Woodlot candle. They are made in Vancouver with a soy coconut wax blend. Some candles end up smelling like chemicals when you burn them, that is not the case with these at all! They give off a subtle non-offensive, delicious smell.

9. Humans Of New York Stories - Because reading other people's stories is fascinating. 

1. Julia, Child - A cute story with great illustrations.

2. Little Oak and Rose Socks - Keeping warm while looking cute is always a good idea! 

3. Acquarella Nail Polish - A water based nail polish that is free of those harmful toxins that are in most nail polishes. Perfect for kids, and you too!

4. Semilla handmade Doll - These adorable little dolls are handmade in Vancouver. There is even an option to customize them and get a matching dress for your little chica!

5. Minimoc Moccasins - Not only are these a great shoe for your littlest ones, we also make the fringed version up to size 10 which makes for a great indoor slipper to cozy up in on these chilly days!

6. Hape Toys Playful Piano - For you, the enjoyment of this gift may fade quickly, but they will love it for years to come!

7. Coral and Cloud Necklace - These modern, wooden bead necklaces are handmade in Vancouver. She will love the fun colours and you will love that they are unique and one of a kind, just like her! They come in two sizes: Small - for her, and Large - for you!

8. Wee Woollies Merino PJ set - These PJs are made in Vancouver from 100% New Zealand Merino wool! They can also be used as a base layer to keep warm on those fun winter outings. Why not start a tradition of giving a pair of pjs every Christmas Eve? 

9. Melissa & Doug Puzzle - Educational, fun and made of wood!
