We are so excited over here at Mardy’s Munchies! Our cookies got a shout out in the latest Martha Stewart Weddings! We put together mini-cookie bags for adult welcome boxes and the cookies were mentioned in a blurb. You can read the blurb here. We work so hard and being a small bakery we do not have a p.r. team or a marketing team. It’s just us. When things like this happen it makes all of our hard work worth it. Someone noticed us. It’s all because of you guys. You support the bakery and you say great things about us, what more can a company ask for?
Our first summer festival is finally here. It’s called The Lummis Day Festival. What is a Lummis?
Well – Lummis Day was named after Charles Lummis. He was an author, adventurer and early advocate of multiculturalism. He also founded the Southwest Museum which was the very first public museum in Los Angeles. He was the first city editor of L.A. Times and one of the city’s first and most influential librarians. Charles Lummis also firmly believed that a man should build a home with his own hands. During more than 15 years of construction, he did just that. His incredible home in Highland Park is now a museum which is open to the public on weekends and offers free admission.

This weekend at the Lummis Day Festival – there will be festivities at the Lummis Home and also across the bridge at the Historic Heritage Square Museum. Admission is free and so is the shuttle! There will be live music, poetry, an art exhibit, dancers, community tables, food and stuff for kids.
If we haven’t seen you in awhile, please consider coming to the Lummis Day Festival this Sunday June 5th. It’s truly a fun day to venture into the history of Los Angeles. We will have our tent set up and our table loaded with lots of delicious goodies for sale.
We will have cupcakes, brownies, cookies, tarts and baby banana bread loaves.
