13 BELLA Lessons learned in 13 BELLA years

1.It's the memories that matter, whether it's good times spent with friends and family or a perfect bottle of Thomas 2003 Pinot noir.
2. Stop thinking outside the box and LIVE outside the box.
3. BELLA means beauty, a beauty found in food, wine, cooking, learning and sharing. A beauty that is always the best 'flavor of the day'.
4. Life is better on the (morning) sunny side of the street, no matter what town you're in! Thanks for the warm welcome La Grande!
5. Guido was right about a lot of things.
6. It's good to have guardian angels, mentors, and people that push you to do MORE (thanks John.)
7. Sea salt, potato peelers and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo can be very sexy.
8. A dollars worth of jelly beans can change your day.
9. Take time to smell the coffee beans and make time to ride your bike.
10. Sometimes bright colored DOTS are the right answer.
11. Fresh, local eggs from Mr. Corona's happy chickens are amazingly delicious!
12. Little things can make such a difference; a little smile, a little treat, a little extra (and always with a really BIG BOW!)
13. Do something new every chance you get and make it fun... and with that in mind,
we're going to do something completely different to celebrate the 13th Anniversary of BELLA Main Street Market in Baker City.

Saturday, May 15th marks our 13th Anniversary in Baker City and as last year was a sidewalk sale to remember (see #1) we decided we needed to do something we haven't done before this year. So Lynn, Maggie and I put our heads together and came up with...

Wine, Linens, Cuisinart Mixers, Tools, Toys and Tomato Sauce (and everything else in the store!)
30% OFF EVERYTHING from 7 am 'til 8 am
20% off EVERYTHING from 8 am 'til 9 am
$1 Cafe Latte' ALL DAY LONG

***All sales cash or check
***NO house account or credit card purchases from 7am 'til 9am.
*** All sales final

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 15th, and we hope to see you early!!

Your La Grande sign looks AWESOME!

And 30% off wine? So early in the morning? Alright, I'll be there. That's too cool, Bev. Congrats on thirteen years of craziness.
