Myxed Up More20 2015 Recap
More20 2015 at Myxed Up Creations really was bigger and better!
The 2015 edition of Myxed Up More20 did not disappoint. This years celebration called for five full days of activities, sales, surprises, and music. Considering that 2015 was now our fifth year celebrating More20, it was only fitting that the party last five days. As with each year, it's our opportunity to thank our loyal customers for so many years of amazing and loyal support. And what better way to bridge the gap to 4/20 (April 20th) in 2016 than with a customer appreciation extravaganza for all of the Myxed Up family spanning the Front Range of our beautiful home state of Colorado and beyond. As More20 has become more popular, each Myxed Up location had brought their unique touch to the holiday festivities. This year was no different, as the stores in Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo stepped it up and brought the energy to match our awesome and enthusiastic friends and family that kept us going for this 5 day bonanza!
More20 2015 launched on Friday October 16th. As the Wacky Inflatable Arm man began his signature dance, the earlybirds got to the stores quickly to start getting the super special deals that wouldn't last long. The legendary Myxed Up Grab Bags are usually some of the first special goodies to get snatched up, and that trend held true once again this year. Another limited edition special for this year was our full glass rig set-up, dome, nail and all for only $10.20. This was such a great deal that we literally almost ruined peoples day when we told them we were sold out of them. But you know what they say, "The early bird gets the worm"! Even if you missed out on the grab bags and $10.20 rigs, there were still plenty of other deals to put a smile on your face. With specials on Jim Popp apparel, Drip e-liquid, Cali Vape, Myxed Up Shrooms, and pipe pendents, just to name a few. Plus other featured items like the new Myxed Up Candles and Dabbin' Dan Hat Pins. There was so much to check out while customers started to rack up raffle tickets for the main event, the More20 Raffle drawing on the night of Tuesday October 20th.
Another attraction that's always a favorite of everyone is the massive sidewalk sale. Once again, Denver and Aurora served as hosting locations for the sidewalk sale. It was a hagglers paradise, as Dabbin' Dan and Myxed Up Clarence were slanging deals in the A-Town, while Myxed Up Gabe and Myxed Up Evan were cutting deals in Denver. It's always so much fun to watch people peruse the sidewalk sale, and then find out the rock bottom prices these pieces were going for. At some points we actually had to keep associates Brian Bubz and Myxed Up Logan from buying up all the markdown merchandise, so the customers could get in on a piece of the action. With glass selling at 80% off, it was just a matter of time before you could find a piece of your own to fall in love with.
With all of these specials going on, there was already great opportunity to get in on some stellar deals. However More20 just would be More20 without some freebies. One thing about More20 that you can bank on after all these years, it that you can always expect the unexpected. There is always going to be a surprise around every corner. Heck, sometimes we're just as surprised as you guys are when special guests come trough with goodies. This year was no different. We were joined by the team from o.penVAPE at the Denver and Aurora store. They were giving away koozies, t-shirts, sunglasses and more. Plus, if you bought $50 in Myxed Up merchandise, they were throwing in a FREE o.penVAPE battery, compatible with their high quality, pre-filled, o.penVAPE cartridges. As if that wasn't enough, there was free pizza at every store on every single day right around 4:20, to help cure those post-session munchies.
The proverbial cherry on top of the weekend at the stores, was all of the DJ's, MC's, fire dancers, and performers we had come through the locations to entertain us. The reality of More20 weekend is, to go along with all of the sales, giveaways, free food, music, etc., More20 is an event to build community. This More20 weekend is all about you, our loyal, fun, friendly Myxed Up customers, that have been a part of truly making the Myxed Up community a family. Part of that bonding is most certainly in celebrating the talents of our friends and family, as they pour their hearts out for us with their artistic expressions. For that, we are so grateful to invite these members of our community to come and share with us. Here is a listing of the acts that performed at our stores for More20 weekend.

As the holiday weekend was coming to a close and the dust was settling, it was time for the grand finale, the big More20 Raffle. As with previous years, any purchase over $10.20 got you a ticket for your chance at the big prize. This year however, we decided to switch it up with the prizes. In the past we have done vaporizers, pipes, electronic cigarettes, hookahs, concert tickets, and a little bit of a lot of things in between. For this More20 raffle, we thought it would be fun to let our winners pick anything they wanted in the store. Third prize was $50, second prize $100, and the grand prize $250 worth of credit (aka Philz Billz) to grab anything you want in the store. The only catch, was that you only had 4 minutes and 20 seconds to spend your Philz Billz! This put the raffle winners in a game show-esque race against the clock, in a pressure cooker situation, to pick out the perfect prize! As always, the raffle was one of the best parts of the More20 festivities, but this new twist added a whole new element to that monumental moment. It was such a blast watching our winners dash around the store spending their Philz Billz. They were like kids in a candy store!
This brought us to the conclusion of another fantastic More20 experience. We couldn't have done it without the love and support of our customers, and we are so grateful for each of you. From all of us here at Myxed Up Creations, thank you so much! See you soon!
