Thanks for all the well wishes a few weeks ago as Bettersweet turned 10! We’ll be doing a little bit of celebrating throughout the year, so look for our first round of shenanigans in July!

It’s always a quick change over from the spring to the summer season here at BSB. Here’s a few items we wanted to let you read over:

~Next weekend, 6/2-6/4 is completely booked for orders.  The following weekend, 6/9-6/11 is nearly at capacity.  Please let us know asap if you’re looking to place an order.

~We recommend a full week as a minimum lead time on orders.  Our wedding calendar is quite full this year so it never hurts to call at least two weeks prior to your event.

~Just a reminder that our Surplus Goodies email is not a weekly guarantee, and most likely will not have an official Thursday email sent out until the end of October.  We do still have surprise lists, specials and occasional news, so you’ll still hear from us over the summer months.

~You are more than welcome to stop in any Friday afternoon between 1-6 pm to check what extras we have.  No call or email needed ahead of time.

~Plan to visit us at the Elkhart Lake Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings June -September.  [We won’t be at the first two markets on 6/3 & 6/10, due to our graduation and wedding calendar, but will be there ready for your sweet tooths on Saturday 6/17 to start our season.]
