What a month it's been! Trying to keep my missives spaced out but now there's a bunch of news to share :) :) :)
First off - our KIVA loan crowdfunding was extremely successful. I want to thank everyone who donated near and far to help us reach our loan amount of $4,500. It took us a total of exactly two weeks to raise these funds, which went towards our security deposit for the new place and towards our beautiful new VINTAGE display case....
Special mention to the wonderful team over at Deconstruction, Inc. and their wonderful work keeping treasures and other useful items out of landfills. This bakery case is about 10 feet long and almost chest high on me. The team of Far Breton Bakery are already dreaming about what kind of wonderful things we are going to bake for display in this marvelous case.
Okay, so the NEXT big piece of news: we have a location, architectural plans, and a timeframe to get into a storefront! Check out the story here:
And our last bit of news, the second crowdfunding which is going towards our WWBIC loan down payment, is sitting at $5,030 raised to date! Lots of generous folks have come forward to purchase gift cards for themselves or loved ones. I'll be getting gift cards printed, so make sure to reach out to me at email@example.com if you want your donation split into multiple gift cards. I will have those plus extra gift items mailed out early December for use at any Far Breton Bakery location starting in January 2023.
If you want to donate by buying your pastries into next year or beyond, or just want to support us by sharing our Indiegogo link on your social media - WE APPRECIATE YOU!!!
In service with love,
Marie and the Team of Far Breton Bakery
