Throwback Thursday – Share your Listings on Facebook

Throwback ThursdayHi there! Kelsey here. I am excited to announce that today we are kicking off a brand new initiative – Throwback Thursday where we will highlight features to help merchants get the most out of their PlaceFull experience.

In fact, we have added so many that sometimes we hear from merchants that they didn’t even know about certain features. Throwback Thursday will serve as a reminder and provide tips and tricks that we think will help you out the most!

Glassblowing – A Unique Way to Give Back this Holiday Season

Glassblowing A Unique Way to Give Back This Holiday Season - Email HeaderIn the spirit of the season, the PlaceFull team took a trip to visit one of our glassblowing merchants, Glassybaby, here in Seattle. We are proud to partner with an organization like Glassybaby, who through its Power of Giving initiative, donates 10% of all proceeds to those in need. As a result of our team building glassblowing event, we were able to make a substantial donation to Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Since we work with glass blowing studios daily to provide their online booking solution, it was fun to experience the craft firsthand and create our own masterpieces. The team event not only resulted in a donation to a great cause, but we are also planning to gift our creations to friends and family this holiday season. See below for a few fun pics of the event!

Over the years, league play has decreased – a decline that is now being counteracted by an increase in recreational play.
