Welcome to the first Batch Store Dispatch! Every week your friendly Batch store associate/blogger Winona will fill you in on what's happening at the Batch retail store in Nashville, products we're loving right now, and upcoming events we're excited about. This week, we're all about Easter. Bring on the sugar rush.
Don't ask me where March went, but somehow Easter is just a few days away. Whether you're a "run around town for weeks seeking out the finest locally made gifts" type or more of a "stop at Walgreens on the way to Grandma's house and hope they have a bag of Cadbury Eggs left" person, this year we'd like to invite you to make your Easter shopping easy, efficient, and fun. Just come to Batch instead. We have everything you need for Easter baskets and hostess gifts all in one place. Also? Our store is way prettier than Walgreens.
Our most popular Easter items right now are these awesome chocolate eggs and bunnies from Chocolate F/X that are as delicious as they are adorable. With flavors like chocolate peanut butter and cookies n' cream, they're great for kids and adults alike and have been flying off the shelves accordingly. Don't worry though, we have plenty left for you to stock up for Sunday.
Other Easter items to delight everyone on your list: Walker Creek caramels and toffee (packaged in Easter bunny-approved pastels, of course); soft, hand-sewn stuffed animals from Elvie; mommy n' me apron sets; Bang Candy gourmet marshmallows; and a wide selection of beautifully crafted wood toys from Giggle Tree that are ready and waiting to become family heirlooms.
As always, we can box up any gifts, free of charge, and Laura, the store's in-house ribbon arbiter*, will help you choose the perfect color combination to top it off with a big, beautiful bow.
Whether you're doing some last minute Easter shopping or just have a sweet tooth, you're probably going to want to stop by the shop for our Sweet Darling macaron tasting on Saturday from 12-2. The new spring flavor collection includes Coconut Lime and Peaches and Cream -- trust us, you don't want to miss this.
We look forward to seeing you soon, and happy Easter!
*Seriously. A customer came in the other day requesting ribbon colors that were "sophisticated, mostly platonic, with perhaps a hint of flirtatious undertones" and everyone agreed that Laura's tasteful light pink and taupe combination knocked it out of the park.
