Cash Mob Success hits Kitsap County

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Local customers at Jak's Cafe Poulsbo, WA

Our day started early for a breakfast visit at Jak’s Cafe and Espresso where Julie Krucek makes everything in her beautiful cafe from scratch.  The family recipes are all gluten free.

She served up many rounds of egg Benedict and delicious artisan creme puffs and really rolled out the hospitality red carpet by singing Happy Birthday to a local Poulsbo resident. Patrons trickled in all day from 10AM-5Pm and enjoyed their visit to the very well known cafe.

Cash Mobbers from Kitsap County couldn’t have asked for better weather for National Cash Mob Day. “My sales were up 40% that day- Thanks so much! When can we do it again?” stated Julie Krucek founder of Jak’s cafe.

The next awesome location was CJ’s Evergreen General Store and Catering where Cynthia Jeffries-Cyr also rolled out the penny candy,  Dinner to Go meals from her famous catering department, hot aromatic espresso, ice cream and pies.

Bremerton Cash Mobs were instrumental in inviting local residents, creating the certificates of appreciation and showcasing what locally made products were available for purchase.  “We bought some of the Sequim Valley Marion Berry Jelly. I’m in heaven!” stated  Robin Henderson founder of Bremerton Cash Mobs.

Cash Mobbers and local business owners celebrated the sunny day and the events success at another locally owned establishment by having a nice meal at Rachel’s in Bremerton. Everyone relaxed, socialized and networked with other local business owners and residents that they might not have normally met.  It was a very humbling, gratifying  and emotional experience for many who attended. Cash Mobbing might be addicting!

“I would like to thank all of you that came by the store for the 1st Bremerton Cash Mob yesterday. I really appreciate all the people that came out. We feel that it was a success. We were so glad to see so many new people and returning customers. We hope to see all of you again. If there is anything that you would like to see us carry, just let us know and we will see what we can do about that. Again, thank you so much. It really was an honor to be one of the first Cash Mob sites. “ Cynthia Jeffries-Cyr

We called in the professional Easter Egg Designers

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Our Easter Designer Eggs

Nothing beats the excitement of hard boiling some eggs and letting the designers create their master pieces! Make sure that you cover your eggs in water and hard boil for approx 15 minutes! Of course Wiki has more complex directions but this seems to work for us!

Designer Hailey hard at work!

All 3 Designers!


Warning with little designers; it does involve some smooshed eggs,  some eggs cracking, lots of colors and a big fun mess. You can use the ever famous PAAS color kits or make your own going green colors with household items such as food dye, or beet juice.

Then we put on the song “Here comes Peter Cotton Tail”  (warning you will be singing this all week long) and designed to our hearts content. Our designers know that the Easter bunny will come if we make the prettiest non-cracked eggs, we act good, we don’t hit our sister designers and we go to bed on time!

Whew! Working with our Easter designers was tough!!! What are you doing for Easter?

Events might be a little soggy but see Kitsap Easter happenings for the weekend. Enjoy!

If you would like to be showcased in the Kitsap Sun Designs of the Times Blog please email me here.  I would love to hear from you.
