Ippodaro’s Open House for the Hidden Gems of San Antonio on February 25th was a complete success! We had such a blast getting to know each and every one of our lovely vendors and we enjoyed learning all about the amazing products and services each of you had to offer. We would personally like to thank everyone who showed up to support our vendors and for letting them teach you a little bit about what their services offer.
Our goal for this open house was to get to know all about our vendor’s businesses as well as introducing them to the Ippodaro Salon. We strive to help spread awareness to those who are small business owners and help each other reach our goals and be the best that we can be. Terri started this because when she was first starting out in the business world she ran into a lot of bumps and curves along the way. Due to the bumpy patches at the beginning, she strives to support small business owners in order to help them have an easier start. Terri has grown to be a very successful business owner, mother, wife, and an amazing teacher. I can confidently say we did in fact reach our goal!
I talked with each of the vendors personally and got heaps of information about their amazing products and the services they offer.

While at the Open house I was lucky enough to be able to take home a jar of their Honey Baby Sugar Scrub and oh man! This has been my favorite product that I have used continuously for the past week. I have been working on putting together a home this past weekend and my hands were so dried out and sore. I simply scrubbed my hands with a little Honey Scrub and my hands were baby smooth the rest of the night. I absolutely love these products and the lovely ladies who provide them.
