Re-Imagine opens May 6th. Don’t miss Bemus Blooms

We have been Re-imagined and the stars are Brenda and Angie. We can’t wait to introduce you to these two super cool, super excited ladies. They are working with mineral paints and turning bland into beautiful with soft finishes, striking colors, stains and stenciled pieces. In addition to offering great home décor, they are planning on classes so you can learn how to up cycle your own super fun pieces. But furniture isn’t all. The girls love to shop and they get pretty serious about searching out the best of the best. So last time I looked they  were hauling hand crafted lake side signs, summer hats, jewelry, baskets, candles and lots more out of their trucks. So what better time than the Bemus Blooms annual spring event to come discover the newest addition to Bemus shopping.

With the flowers blooming, birds chirping and sun shining, why wouldn’t you want to be out and about. Come join us for a taste of spring and discover fresh ideas. Yes, we will still have some of your favorites but also a big helping of NEW NEW NEW for YOU! The new girls on the block want to meet YOU so stop in and introduce yourself May 6th for Bemus Blooms. 

8th Annual Fall Fest Sept 16-18, 2016

Verna's Tree

Just when summer starts to wane and you think the last boat in Bemus has been docked or the final fireworks display is nothing but smoke trails, it’s time to get ready for the Bemus Point Fall Fest. The whole village is decorated with corn stalks and scarecrows to set the stage. It is time to let summer slowly sail away and to welcome the pleasures of autumn. This year the festivities will be September 16th -18th.

 

Fall Fest is a Bemus tradition sponsored by the Bemus specialty shops. Did you know that Bemus has 12 specialty shops? Each one is different and each one is run by passionate, creative people who search the planet for wonderful goods. These shops are unique custom designed indie stores that are scattered throughout the town.

 

During Fall Fest, each participating store offers a “Pick-a-leaf” discount as part of the weekend celebration. This means that once happy shoppers have collected what they would like to purchase, they pick a fall leaf from a cluster at each shop. No peeking. The leaf has a discount clearly marked on it ranging from 5-50% off. The discount is applied to the customer’s entire order at the register when they check out at each location. Some stores feature refreshments and fall decorations, and others host in-store events. Restaurants feature delicious fall dishes and drinks designed specifically for the fest.

 

In addition to the stores and restaurants of Bemus, there is a petting zoo that sets up on Saturday and Sunday in front of the Musky Mall. Children and adults are fascinated by the interesting animals that visit the town. Carriage rides that tour the village are also very popular. Kettle Korn is popping in the streets and vendor booths are sprinkled through the village.

 

Live music is also part of the tradition. Sometimes it is on the floating stage but some years musicians wander through the town or set up on the street. Come rock with Dan Vogan in front of Cappola’s during the weekend.

 

This event is a great way to see what is new at the stores and to explore the stalls. It is a perfect way to get out and enjoy the lush colors, crisp air, and all the joys of the harvest season.

We are excited about the upcoming season.

This season, after having a very successful surgery and getting my energy back, I am happy to say I’m looking forward to opening the shop. One of my favorite things to do is shop for the store. This year we are bringing back some of our favorites and we have also found some new, fresh items. Here is a sneak preview of a few of our finds.Atenti Bag 2cloverIMG_2705photo (57) Pink Leather
