Arcana + Bee'otch Honey Trunk Show!

It's trunk show time! A once-per-year opportunity to sniff and slather a vast selection of Arcana perfumes, purchase this year's Yule seasonals, various layering notes, rarities, and discontinueds, as well as test sugar scrubs, see and smell the soaps, and get very special pricing on absolutely everything.

This is also an opportunity to obtain a bottle of Bee'otch's incredible artisanal honey (from adorable St. Johns bees) which is being presented this year in the MOST GORGEOUS packaging I have ever seen for honey. It tends to sell out quickly, so be warned!

We will have free Absinthe cocktails (no kidding!), softer things to imbibe, delicious little edibles, Bee'otch honey tastings, and I've even heard talk of Leaves Falling Like Rain body cream with testers and all! (But those could just be wild rumors.) ALL of this year's Yule soaps and sugar scrubs will be on hand, unless they sell out.

Also... PREVIEW! The night before, Saturday, December 18th from 7 pm to 9 pm, you can preview the entire sale, have a drink, sniff, slather, covet, taste, fondle, and purchase whatever you like.

Tell us you heard about this here and receive free samples!

LOCATION: 7580 North Heppner Ave, Portland, OR 97203.

DIRECTIONS: Traveling west on North Lombard towards St. Johns, cross the little bridge and then there's a Freddie's on the left (not the I-5 Freddies, this one is farther west) and a big Key Bank sign on the right. North Heppner is a right turn at the Key Bank. 7580 is at the end of the block on the right, where Heppner makes a T with Central.

And if you're on North Lombard on Saturday, I hope you're going to make an appointment for a facial, pedicure, or anything hair related at Trixie's Beauty Bar (4821 N Lombard, (503) 285-2899 for hours) or stop in at Orleans Candle Co (5036 N Lombard, 503-289-2304 for hours) for OMFG some of the best candles ever. (They're also Arcana's newest retailer!) Then you can hit Thai Cottage at 8620 N Lombard for dinner and backtrack east to the preview of our sale. So your Saturday is all planned out now! I feel better, don't you?)

Ok, I know I'm tired. But where is the trunk show being held?

But trying to find it is the fun part!

(No, I x-posted this quickly from Facebook and accidentally failed to include the location. Oops. Amended above.)

And you might have to make me an Absinthe cocktail in a shot glass, because I get drunk easily and I'm not sure if you can handle that :P

Well, we might take advantage of your state and put you to work (under the pretext that you're in no condition to drive.

OR you can have a very weak Absinthe cocktail. Or there is some lovely ginger ale also.

Ha! I may have mentioned to my mother that I was planning on going to the trunk show and having a cocktail, and she may have said, "oh, I'll drive." I have to mention now she lives in West Linn, so she's driving quite the distance so her daughter can play with perfumes and drink. Giggling tipsy girl plus mother coming!

I managed to get my husband to drive me down to Seattle from Vancouver on Saturday but I couldn't quite manage Portland since I didn't find out until a couple of days before :) If this is an annual event though, I might be able to arrange a trip down next Christmas break :)

We've done some kind of trunk show at Yule for the last 3 years, so yes, it has been an annual event.

But this year was so much fun, I'm now toying with the idea of another little something before Valentine's Day. End of January or beginning of Februaryish. We'll see!

Oooh, intriguing :) Well, if I can't manage that, hopefully I'll be able to come to a Yule event next year!!
