This past Sunday was Union Made! Aside from the small winter trunk show type event at Gather Here back before the holidays, this was my first fair in over a year! I took 2012 as a breather. I focused on painting and growing Egg-A-Go-Go online while analyzing what exactly I was planning to do with my little business.
Turns out, I definitely still want to do the occasional fair. I had so much fun yesterday. It was long and hot and there was all of the usual outdoor-in-the-city craziness that happens but it was amazing.
I shared a booth with Jen and had a big seconds sale to clear out some old slightly imperfect stock.
The bands were so great.
I drank too much iced tea but successfully avoided getting a sunburn.
Selling in person is exhausting and exciting and a little intimidating but it's always so great to talk to folks and to hear firsthand what they think about your work. And I don't know if I could ever give it up seeing as how 1) I organize these things! and 2) Selling at craft fairs is how this all started for me back in 2004!
As I'm unpacking and re-inventorying, I am getting so excited for Bazaar Bizarre and for the re-branding I was already planning for Egg-A-Go-Go.
Onwards and upwards!
