Williams-Sonoma Artisans' Market

Posted on May 07, 2014 by LISA KUNIZAKI | 0 Comments

We were so thrilled to be invited to participate in the Artisans' Market at Williams-Sonoma on Saturday, May 3rd. 

We arrived a little early to set up, but things got busy pretty quickly. 

I was so excited when I saw this sign!

If you've never been to the Williams-Sonoma at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue, this is the entrance.

And right to the left of the entrance as you walk through the doors was our table! The staff there are SO good to us. 

Here's mom sporting one of our aprons. I bought one from Muji when I was in Japan last summer and absolutely loved it so then my cousin, Chika, was kind enough to buy me some more and mail them to me from Tokyo. I absolutely love that store. I grew up buying most of my stuff from there growing up. Just a side note, they make the absolute best socks!  

Here are all seven teas in a little mahogany light up display box for people to open and sniff. 

I served our two best-sellers, Love Spell and Chocolat et Fraise in Hario Jumping Tea Pots and made sure to steep a new pot each time we ran low. We ran out of the Love Spell before we had to leave so a few people we left a little disappointed. We also sold out of the full size tea pouches at the event! 

I also served Mon Frère, our vanilla hazelnut oolong, which was a huge hit!

We sold little point of purchase items for people to take as gifts and had special offers on our sugars.


Our Warm Heart compressed green tea were a smash and at $3 a piece I think everyone agreed it was a bargain. We also sold blooming teas for $6. Everything was gift wrapped and beautifully presented. 

We would like to thank everyone who attended the event and for everyone who purchased our products. We had a fabulous time and we met some wonderful people. We are also extremely grateful to Williams-Sonoma for inviting us to participate in this year's Artisans' Market.



P.S. We will be hosting a Mother's Day Tea at Williams-Sonoma on Saturday, May 10th. For info click on the link.
