The West Coast Bella Girls have been keeping track of patterns as they appear over the course of our tour. There are some patterns that we notice repeating themselves over the course of several days. But there are also other patterns, or perhaps they’re better described as trends: things that happen several times in one day or more likely during the three hours of one event – a little mini-pattern, specific to that day or that event. I wrote about the Saturday in Pleasonton, where we had a bunch of multigenertaional families stop to sample. Today, at a Lucky in San Jose, we had two trends.
First was the popularity of our stickers. Now, they’re pretty much always popular with the kids, but today, they were also a big hit with teenagers! We were pretty psyched when this guy decided to deck out his bumper with two Ciao Bella stickers. Smart guy – he knows a good gelato or sorbet (with pretty logos in great colors) is a sure way to impress the ladies!
The second was people asking me to take pictures of them with our truck. This family was the third to make the request today – and the only group I remembered to snap my own picture of, but we had two others who were so excited by our truck, they wanted pictures with it. Not with us, mind you, with our truck! Though I can’t blame them – it’s a good looking truck…and of course the treats that comes out of it (our samples!!) are even better!
We’re looking forward to seeing more trends as our tour continues, and when we do, we’ll tell you about them here! Maybe you can be part of a trend at one of our upcoming stops – tomorrow we’re hitting Pinole and Benicia – see you there? ‘Til then, sweet tasty dreams, and good night from the West Coast Bella Girls!
