  2. Hello Fran, what a great idea! That would make an awesome birthday gift – AND – this workshop will be perfect for all three age groups! They will have such fun! (… and so will you!)

  3. Hello,
    I would like to RSVP for 2 children for the April 2nd terrarium workshop.
    What must I do to have our spot reserved?
    Thank you,
    Becky Garnier

  4. Hi I was just on your Facebook events and it doesn’t look like anyone from your store is manning it. Do you know many people are rsvp-ing in the comments for the terrarium workshop ? It’s not clear how you want an rsvp and it says there’s tickets but there’s not , right? I don’t want kids to be disappointed. Please go to Facebook and confirm the rsvps. Thanks

  5. Hi Becky, you will need to call into the store or come into the store to reserve tickets. The phone number is 604 856 9339. Thank you!

  6. Hi Frankie, you will need to call into the store or come into the store to reserve tickets. The phone number is 604 856 9339. Thank you!

  7. Hi Erica, it does say on the event posting to go to the website for ticket info. When you click on the link, it will give you the details about how to book. Basically, you will need to either call into the store at 604 856 9339 or come into the store in order to book. Someone is manning the Facebook Page, however this is a business page so it is not manned 24/7/365. Hope this answers your question. We very much appreciate you responding to us! Thank you.
