On Saturday, March 10, vendors and guests convened at the Fargo Civic Center for the first ever Red Silobration Retreat hosted by Bobbi Jo and Todd Cody of The Red Silo. What they got out of it was a day full of fun and inspiration. We at Design & Living Magazine had the privilege of capturing the joy that permeated this event.

The day began at 8:30 with coffee and shopping. Keynote speaker Rebecca Undem took to the stage at 9:30, followed by a fashion show by AJ Robert and Charmed Boutique, more shopping and live demonstrations from To The Core, Doubting Thomas Farm, Thunder Coffee and MilkMade. Guests were then served lunch and listened to the keynote’s final remarks.

Bobbi Jo and Todd Cody would like to thank all of the vendors and guests who made this event such a success. It is all because of you that they are able to do what they love and bring other people joy in the process.
