In just a handful of days, Montreal’s SFTH14 will take place at the Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire again. To say that I am amazed by the outpour of participation, donations, sponsorships and word of mouth would be an understatement.
Just when I thought it might not be possible to get everything together again, it did, bigger and better than last year!
If you are coming to SFTH14 as a returning vendor or attendee, you know just how much crazy fun there is to be had in this three hour extravaganza.
To the new vendors and new attendees…get ready! You could not pick a better year to get on board.
I don’t think there is a woman alive that is not a multitasker. Well SFTH14 is showcasing the power of women multitasking in an awesome way:
– Have a great night out with friends
– Shop through 40+ entrepreneurs with amazing products/services
– Donate to the three charities supporting children through your raffle tickets and the silent auction
The first 100 attendees will be given a great reusable bag with some goodies inside, courtesy of Ask Mama MOE, Baby Gourmet, Montreal Families and PositivelyPatty.ca. Perfect for your shopping night *wink, wink*.
Prana Massotherapie is coming with two massage chairs and one massage table to give FREE massages! To find out more about their center and all their services, please click their logo on the sidebar.
This year, not one, not two, but three women in business are donating to an incredible sweet table! Mini cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, macaroons…all waiting for you to try. To find out more about them click on their links:
Our incredible SFTH photographer, Valerie Pyke will be there again this year with a photo booth! Oh, and she is also giving a photo session away in our silent auction, which you will want to bid on, she is amazing!
Jennifer Harris of JHMakeup will be on hand to do touch-ups to your gorgeous faces before you get your picture taken.

Social Media Spreading The Word
As you may have seen, Shopping From The Heart is really buzzing around in the social networks. Local businesses and brands are mentioning the event often on Twitter and Facebook and the event page has been getting a great amount of hits. I’m very happy to hear all the buzz from the Montreal Families write-up and the work that the vendors and myself are doing. I sincerely hope this means that there will be a fantastic turn out for the evening and I look forward to meeting some of you in person that I have only met on Twitter. Follow #SFTH14 on Twitter to read all the buzz.
There is no better place to shop for Mother’s Day this year. Supporting local women in business, helping three Montreal hospitals for mothers and children…all while having a really fun time!
See you soon!
