Up and running

THANK YOU!

DSC_0803I can't thank you enough for a great summer and start to The Optimist Co. I had such a wonderful time meeting so many new customers and amazing people this summer at events and farmers markets. I need to thank all of you for making this such an exciting and successful summer for my business. I was not sure what to expect at the first farmer's market this summer. Setting up I could not believe I pulled it off, got everything done and was up and running! It was a thrill to get so much positive feedback for the products I created. Hearing how they are working directly from customers was my goal this summer and that knowledge is invaluable as I develop new products and bring the current ones to retail stores. Thank you for sharing your stories!! It is rewarding knowing my products are already being used not just on Cape Cod but in Michigan, Illinois, California, Florida, Texas, New York, New Jersey and even internationally in Bolivia. I began to make cleaning products to provide a more healthy home environment for my own family. It is an honor to know my products are already helping to green the homes of others with asthma, cancer, allergies, chemical sensitivities and families with new babies. Please check out the events I will be at including two scheduled GreenUps this fall. My products are available at Farm Fair Market in Sandwich, can be ordered online through my Etsy shop and orders can also be placed by phone and email through my website. A special thanks to... Maura Hempstead, Joe Berlandi and the Barnstable Village Business Association for a fantastic farmer's market this year! Nicole Cormier from Farm Fair Market and Delicious Living nutrition for organizing the Mashpee Commons Farmer's Market, being an early supporter and carrying my products in her amazing store! Amanda Converse, Jen Villa and Kate Sheehan for organizing Love Local and for your early support. Your events make working so much fun!

Fall is going to be a very busy time for my little business. Stay tuned for a new look, new location, new vendors, more events and products! I have listed a few of the upcoming events I will be holding in October and November. Please stay connected, share your stories and become an optimist! Green Up! A fun way to learn everything you need to know to start making your own cleaning products. Learn the benefits of using natural, easy to find ingredients and leave with a completed DIY cleaning kit, window wash and all purpose cleaner. Cost is $25 for materials, and as a bonus of attending a GreenUP! go home with your own jar to start making citrus infused vinegar for cleaning. Your kit will make 8 bottles of the cleaning sprays, a great cost savings. Have fun and GreenUP! your cleaning.

Good luck to you! We just launched this summer too and have lots of work ahead but isn’t it rewarding doing something that you love and that feels meaningful! I’d be happy to write a review on www.farmersmarketfinds.com if you would like to send me some product. A giveaway is a great way to get the word out too! Let me know if you are interested.
