Second weekend is now complete. We had better than expected sales and sold out of nearly all items before the weekened was over.  The lesson here is come visit us as early as possible to ensure you get the items you have been craving all year long.

This weekend is third weekend. If you haven’t had a chance to make it out to The Dickens Fair yet this year, you really should. New shows, new crafters, and plenty of chocolatey goodness to go around!

See you in London.

 

We had a great first weekned at Dickens Christmas Fair. We got the Christmas season off to a wonderful start. We have two new people helping at the Chocolate Booth: Melly and Matthew. We appreciate the help.

Now for a quiz. What flavor of truffle is this??

Opening weekend of Dickens Fair is fast upon us and we are in full production to make sure we have enough of everything. If you would like to place an order for outside of Fair for local pickup or to be shipped, send us a message here and we’ll set you up. Otherwise, see you at the Fair this weekend!

One more weekend to get Bramosia Chocolates in 2015! Come visit us at Dickens Fair Decemeber 19th and 20th. One final weekend to see us, to get toffee, rocky road, girl fudge and boy fudge, whole cream caramels, hot buttered rum mix, dalecks, and tardises, lemon truffles, chili truffles, and peanut butter cups and much more. Please remember to get to fair early and make us your first stop not your last else you may be dissapointed. This weekend is historically our busiest ever and this year has been our best year so far so we will, if history is any indicator, be very busy.

We love seeing your bright and shiny faces so if you haven’t come yet please do, if you have already this year we’d love to see you again.

Lastly, our Kickstarter Campaign is still on. Please donate to it if you would like to help us get closer to moving into our new location in Oakland, CA that much quicker. Thank you and see you soon.

We now have a signed contract to buy and the sellers bank has signed off on the sale. All we’re waiting for now is final approval from our credit union that they are going to fund us. Keep your fingers crossed!

We just put an offer in on a building in Oakland. If accepted, we will be opening a store front in 2015! You will finally be able to get our wonderful chocolates you crave year round. Having a store front will also allow us to expand our product line. Not only will we have all the favorites that you have come to love, the Rocky Road, the fudge, the lemon truffles to name a few, we have all sorts of ideas of wonderful treat that in the past, we just didn’t have the time or space to make.

We will also have for your gastronomical pleasure true Milanies style Gelato as the owner learned to make from scratch, (not from a mix), while in Milan, Italy. Pair that with coffee and espresso drinks and you can see we will have the trifecta of goodness.

We are committed to basing our business on making great chocolate and such for the masses. There are plenty of chocolate companies out there trying to capture the high end market with fancy packaging and pretty chocolates. We would rather spend the money on great ingredients and just make great tasting goodies, even if they don’t look as slick or have the polished packaging. That way we can keep our prices down.

So, how can you be involved? Well, we have enough funds to buy the building, and we already own about 75% of the equipment we need to operate, but we are short on funds to build the kitchen out. Once we have a signed contract to buy the property we will be launching a kickstarter campaign to raise funds for this. We will be offering some great incentives to entice you into helping fund us. For starters, on the lower end of involvement, you will get twice your pledge in store credit. For the mid range pledges you will get some store credit, and a store discount for a length of time, the higher the pledge, the higher the store discount and longer it’s duration. For the angel pledgers that really want to help us out, we are thinking about inviting you and a group of your friends into our kitchen that you have helped fund, to teach you  how to make  fine chocolates. We’re thinking of making this a fun party atmosphere with wine and hors d’oeuvres and such.

We’re still working out the details, but we really want to make it worth your while to get involved.

Keep an eye to this page, when we know we have the building we will announce the campaign here.

We now return you to your previously scheduled program.
