The day went really well. I shared a space with Jessica from Haasome Goods and my good friend Ben stuck around from the time we set up til the time we left the show (approximately 10 hrs.. 4pm til 1am). You can see us below with our goofiest expressions in this picture that Fort Cloudy took of our little trio:
Several friends came by to show their support. One of my friends even brought her mom - they ended up buying phone cozies for themselves and some flowery buttons to put on their blazer's lapels. I hadn't thought of that before so I think I will start wearing my infamous pink flower pin on my brown corduroy jacket... it'll look cute and even do some self-promoting. :) Here's myself and Yuliya posing for the camera, looking hawt:
Anywho, I did manage to sell several pins.. to people I don't know.. hah.. but the wristwarmers and cozies didn't get very much play. There were live bands playing the entire night and plenty of cheap booze to go around so I did have peppy, drunken potential customers feeling up the knit/crochet goods but didn't actually get anything. Maybe I shoul'dve been offering free alcohol with purchase.. haha..
Welp, that is all. Hopefully Jessica and I will be doing Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg within a month or so.. the weather is getting more and more beautiful.. the creative juices are flowing.. and things are looking up.
