Sing with us! It's the 12 Days of Bend Schwag...


Ahem. A song.

Not just any song, mind you. In honor of today’s date of 12/12/12, and the fact that the Bend Visitor Center is hosting a special “Shoppy Hour” this Friday (more on that later), I present you this tribute to some of the fabulous Bend souvenirs we sell here at Visit Bend.

Here’s the musical debut (minus the, uh…music) of my original tune, “The 12 Days of Bend Schwag.”


The 12 Days of Bend Schwag

On the 12 day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .

Prices range from $3.85-$7.

T-shirts are $25 for short-sleeves, and $30 for long. Hats are $20.

Just $5 a bar!

It’s spearmint AND organic!

Prices range from $7-$15.

Just $10.

$10 each, or 4 for $38.

Just $9 for the Via Delia opener, and $10 for the one with the wooden handle.

Custom drawn by renowned artist Aaron Trotter, featuring 52 sketches of Bend landmarks. $20 a deck, but specially priced Friday – buy two decks, get one free!

As you can see, there’s a plethora of Bend goodies for sale at the Bend Visitor Center this season. For an extra special deal, be sure to stop by on Friday, December 14 from 4-5 p.m. for the very first “Shoppy Hour.” Almost all retail items will be offered for an extra 10% off, plus anyone making a purchase will be entered in a drawing for $50 in Crux Bux for Crux Fermentation Project or a prize basket from Dawg Grog.

Shoppy Hour will also feature tasty food and drinks from local vendors including Mazza Bistro. The guys from Dawg Grog will even be pouring samples for your four-legged friends, so bring them, too.

The Bend Visitor Center is located at 750 NW Lava, suite 160. It’s on the corner of Oregon Avenue and Lava Road, and there’s plenty of parking on the street and in the adjacent parking garage.

See you there. And happy shopping to all, and to all a good night!
