Where in the World are your Bonanno's?

Hi Vivian,
My Bonanno's are in the Tuscan countryside resting on the balcony of our hotel. I took two other pairs and we traveled all over Florence, the Tuscan countryside and Rome. Very comfortable shoes given that we walked an average of 6-7 miles per day!.
Thanks for such fun, cute shoes.

Sorry it took so long to announce the winner for a pair of Stephen Bonanno Monogram Sandals.

In my newsletter I asked if my blogger friends were interested, to post our Sunfest Sale on their sites and I would enter them into a raffle to win a pair of Monogram sandals.
You did and the winner is ... Ronda from Stella's Mom blog

My passion is dogs, and cooking anything and everything. I would have been a chef if it weren't for the long hours, weekends, and holidays they have to work. My other passion is being with my family and friends whenever possible. I love spending summers and any other time I can at our summer home on the eastern shore in Maryland.

Ronda, e-mail me with your info and we can place your order.

Thanks again to everyone to played along.

An itsy bitsy, teeny tiny, ... sandal

Marcelino, one of our cobblers, made this adorable tiny sandal to hang from my Bonanno Tote.
Love the high heel!


Blogging is a blast ...
... but it drives me crazy that I can't seem to get my images and captions to place neatly and orderly on the page. When I publish and view, I always seem to have soooo much white space, or air between them, and there's no telling where my captions will end up.
i.e. "Fun in the Sun" and "Bullies VS Bonanno's"

It's frustrating!
Thank you for listening ... :)

We've got new boxes!

I'm excited ... we have a new logo with our monogram in the middle (see top of box), the signature phrase on each side, our family story on the bottom, signed from the designer and a friendly reminder to send in those pictures of you in your Bonanno's for the "Where in the World ..." on our blog.

Where in the World are your Bonanno's?

Hi Aunt Viv,
While you were busy with customers I took this pic for your blog.
It says it all ...
W. Palm Beach 2009

Strawberry Blonde


Five days of sandal madness at the Sunfest Festival, held every year in W. Palm Beach.
Stephen Bonanno was named the Official Sandal of Sunfest 2009, and our tent was in front of ER Bradley's Saloon this year. The weather was beautiful, music was loud, the Art was fabulous and a great time was had by all ...

Domo and Steve setting up the tent
This is what it looks like before the crowds ...

The first day

Let's get this party started!

A very serious bead collector.

Bonanno fans wanting a pic with the designer.

Joey and his buddy ... also big fans.

Bullies VS Bonanno's

Hi Vivian,
Miss Blanche (red & white) and Arrgyle (white) seem to have uncovered a truth ...

that not just ladies love Bonanno's, but bullies too!!

The score remains Bullies-0, Bonanno's-2

Where in the World are your Bonanno's!

Here we are-
Me and my Bonannos travel with me to the Island of Tortola in the BVI

Where in the World are your Bonanno's!

I ordered these cuties last year and can say these are my most FAVORITE shoes!!!
I wore these shoes while on my trip last week to Jekyll Island and St. Simon's Island.
I was completely amazed at how many times I was stopped because of my shoes.
Keep up the great work!!!
