We Have a Winner!

Every "Stuart Stroll" we welcome up to 400 strollers for an evening of socializing, sipping and shopping. During the 3 hours we raffle off a pair of "Palm Beach Classics," serve wine and run into old friends as well as meet new ones.

This past Thursday we had a couple hundred people enter our raffle ... Saturday afternoon we drew a ticket and called the winner. It went something like this ...
"Hello, this is Domenick from Stephen Bonanno Sandals, may I speak with Olivia?" The man on the other end, said "yes, but are you sure you don't want to speak to her Mother instead?"

Turns out Miss Olivia is 6 years old and owns several pair of Bonanno's, which she has outgrown, and is due for another pair.

She thought it was "cool" to know she was our winner and insisted that she and her Dad would be in that same night to be fitted.

She lives in Jensen Beach, and loves animals. She has fish, one dwarf hamster named Streaky and a dog named Peaches.

Olivia decided on White Multi with a boat sole. She also wanted to add a little glitz to her colors so we will replace the Yellow with Gold.
I think we just made a new friend.

All the way from Denmark

2 years ago Rikke saw an ad for our sandals while visiting a friend in Stuart.

She went back to Denmark planning her next visit to the States, this time with the idea of getting a pair of Bonanno's on her next trip! March 2008 she made it back and first thing she did was stop in to check out the colors.

Citrus w/White was her color of choice.
Rikke, I hope you are enjoying your Bonanno's!

Where in the World are your Bonanno's?

Ok, so my Bonanno's didn't travel very far ... but I wanted to show them off anyway.

We were invited for an afternoon of boating with friends, Joe and Pat ... They wanted to show us our town from the water. So, I just had to have sandals made for the occasion.

I can't believe this is the only picture I have of my sandals. They are a "Ships Wheel." White base with Regal Blue whipstitching and a boat bottom, of course. The gift basket was our way of saying thanks for a wonderful afternoon.

Joe, Pat with Domo on their 31 ft Monteray. It was super cool.

Domenick's making sure the coast is clear.

Me and Pat. It was such a beautiful day . Thanks guys.

Show your colors!

Spring. Pedicures. Baseball. Need I say more.

A custom pair of Boston Red Sox sandals in Regal Blue with Tristan for Bianica. Domenick insisted on having his Yankee cap right on top for this photo.
What can I say, he's a die hard.
