Thank you for making our Holiday Event such a success!

Early on in our shopping night, our amazing bookkeepers from Black Tulip were perusing the store while enjoying a glass of wine and a little nosh!

It was a cold rainy night, but that didn't stop our Friends & Family event from being a great success! Several people picked up pieces that they'd had their eye on, some perfect Christmas gifts were found, and we all enjoyed our first Holiday party of the season!

Do you have any more photos from the night? We would love to see them! Email us at info@lamerceria.ca!
