Stories, news and little things we think you would like to know.
Sometime in late November we introduced a new product - Sustainable Business Gift Baskets. The concept was created as a way to keep in step with the local business community, not just during the winter holiday season, but year-round. No doubt the timing was just right - the model of a sustainable business community is growing in leaps and bounds. Sure, we could have purchased the coffee and tea from a catalog, or even a membership club store, but we like the idea of buying from our neighbors. It feels great.
When someone opens one of our baskets at their workplace, it gets everyone talking about each product that's in there. They share the cookies, and the chocolates, and that's when the magic happens. People love good food - they love to eat it, and they love to talk about it. Just try biting into one of Gail's brownies without saying "mmm..." And of course, the coffee smells great.
Back Door Bakeshop Sustainable Business Gift Baskets are available in three sizes - petite $22, mid-size $25, and colossal $55. Each cellophane wrapped basket is eco-friendly and proudly feature these products:
• Tea from Christine's Secret Garden
• Cookies, bars and brownies from Back Door Bakeshop
If you're interested in ordering a basket, send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 610-625-0987.
These baskets were featured on p. 57 of Lehigh Valley Marketplace "Early Spring Issue 2010" published on April 1, 2010.
The flowers are blooming in our front window and that means beautiful days are just ahead. So go for a walk! If you're walking by the bakeshop, stop and say Hi, take a rest on our bench or wave hello. The screen door is open and you'll likely catch Gail's favorite music wafting out with the sweet scent of chocolate brownies and lemon squares.
Lots more to talk about - back later.
One year after we first opened our door, we're growing steadily.
Thanks so much to our "fans" and friends who talk to us every day through Facebook, Twitter and email. It's your support - and good taste - that we count on.
There's so much to talk about, not just cookies and brownies and coffee, but farmers' markets and festivals and parties. Check back often, and comment anytime.
