We launched on May 31 with a few hundred attendees. It was a mad rush, getting the house ready, the food etc. We had the initial baskets sent by air, which means they went in large sachets from Madagascar to Paris to LAX via Air France. There is only one way out of Madagascar, if you can tell....all roads lead through Paris. Even the sea freight has to go through France.
Everything had to be unpacked and tagged. My neighbors stopped to ask if we were opening a shop.."well, sort of..." It was a scene. But after all the planning, I was so happy to see the baskets we had ordered; they were beautiful!!!
