cash mob hits hubbard gift shop

I am in lower case mode while I nurse an arm injury. On the mend!

so much cash mob news! let’s start with last month’s big day at One Closet Boutique in niles. we had fun at this sweet shop on hwy. 422. the store is a former house, a terrific repurposing. the cash mob fell on the first gorgeous saturday in spring and who can compete with that? so the turnout was skimpy, and I wanted to put in one more word to those who would most love it, the slender fashionistas among us.

the new warren-niles-trumbull co. cash mob hit the ground running yesterday at subs plus in niles. I was one of the last diners in the mobbery and the servers I talked to said it had been a steady day. I’m so thrilled about this enthusiastic and quickly growing cash mob extraordinaire!

our own cash mob will be at the Hubbard Ohio Gift Shop, 
6177 youngstown-hubbard rd., 
next saturday may 24, 
from 10:00 to 5:00.  
about her shop, owner Diana says “Hubbard Ohio Gift Shop features Diana's all natural handmade items, Gramz' Vintage Jewelry & new, Avon, odds & ends, Ceramics, Gypsy Queen Media $1.00 books & $2 videos, greeting cards, hand-poured candles, floral decor, glassware + pet stuff. We are in the old Rhodes Dairy, across from the old McKenzie Square shop. We are in the same little plaza as UnderDog Records (still there) and 2 Much Stuff (the old Dotti's Beauty Place)..” please note that this shop is cash only.

in june, wow! a new farmer’s market begins on Glenwood Ave. Tues. nights. the site is next to the new community park, across from lafrance cleaners. the first market will be june 10th. come on down and check out the rural and urban farmers growing food right here, for us.

june 14 will be a huge event we’re calling cash mob in the city. we will be cash mobbing the whole downtown. our event will begin after the color run. we’ve been talking to businesses and will be distributing flyers. mark your calendars, bring your people and visit the places you’ve never been into. or, instead of eating a meal at one eatery, ask if a special cash mob sampler is on the menu, and graze your way down the town. the mob times are roughly noon to 7:00. there is lots of parking in the big lots on front street, on the street or in pocket lots. or consider taking the bus right downtown.

more and more people have heard of us and support what we’re doing, and I’m optimistic we can continue to grow our efforts and the local economy. not enough jobs? let’s make some.

thanks for your support!

cash mob, like flash mob, only the singing is optional.
