    After the Buy Idaho First Thursday Open House, Susan, from Thunder Mountain Tea, received a lovely note from a customer.  

    "Dear Susan,

    We met you at the most recent First Thursday at the Buy Idaho Store.  Wanted to send a quick note to tell you how wonderful your teas are.

    So far, I tried the simply Ms. Grey at First Thursday, free samples of the 

    Irish Morning and Raspberry Oolong, and purchased the Country Pleasure which we just opened up.  Great teas.  Wonderful, tasty blends.  Country Pleasure and Ms. Grey are superb.  The Irish Morning is so smooth and so different from any of the overly strong, bitter Irish Breakfast blends I've ever had.  And, the Raspberry Oolong is really, really special.

    You've definitely hooked my wife and me on tea again.  Thank you!

    Paul D.

    Boise, ID"

    We love this!

    Now that the dust has settled and the boxes have been unpacked, we are ready to show off our new digs tomorrow with a great big party! We are very excited about our new location, and the potential for new events and opportunities, it brings.  The showroom is light, bright and welcoming and our office space breeds creativity.  Not to mention the courtyard! We are thrilled to call this new space our Buy Idaho home.  That being said, this move was quite the undertaking for a staff of 2.  So we want to thank all of the members, family and friends that helped make this move successful.  

    Thank you to our realtor, Brianna Miller, with Thorton Oliver Keller, who helped us secure this lovely location.  Thank you to Brett, Office Install Quality, for not yelling when we broke your cart with our very heavy desks and for your big furniture moving know-how.  Thank you to the Canyon County Fair for giving those heavy desks a new home.  Thank you to Boise WiFi for providing great internet service and being, frequently, available to answer my naive questions. Thank you to InCom Telecom for providing great phone service and phones that we will never learn how to use the full function of (where's that cheat sheet, Bobby?). Thank you Treasure Valley IT and Automated Office Systems for keeping us up and functioning. Lastly, when you easily spot our new location, we can all give thanks to Classic Design Studio for our beautiful new sign and for allowing us to be their new tenants.  We couldn't be happier and more thankful for you all.  Cheers to a new chapter!
