March Evening Mixer: Barnaby Street Shoppes Recap

image-2 We had a great crowd out for this month’s evening mixer, which was held at the Barnaby Street Shoppes in Surprise. Owned by Gary Arnold, the space is home to a collection of booth businesses working side-by-side offering everything from specialty salsas to relaxing painting space. Most recently, Gifts to Go, a local gift shoppe, added a post office into their booth space for easy shopping and shipping. Check out a full listing of the shops here: Barnaby Street Shoppes. We were happy to get out to the West Valley during Shop, Give, Serve Local Month initiative from Leadership West, an organization committed to cultivating leadership capital for positive and affective change in the West Valley. Local First Arizona is partnering with the Leadership West Class of XX this month with LFA Localists events around the area. Coming up is a GasLight Inn’s romantic weekend getaway giveaway to one lucky Localist on March 28th!


Refreshments were provided by Ann’s Asian Bistro, Bite Me Breads & Cookies, 5 ‘n Diner Deluxe, and Hurricane Grill & Wings. Several of the booth owners put out some goodies and samples from their stock too – cheese, salsa and chips, cookies and teriyaki meatballs! Thank you Barnaby Street Shoppes for hosting our March evening mixer. Be sure to RSVP for next month’s evening mixer and everything in between here: LFA Events
