No matter, really.
Where did we leave off? Oh yes. The Shadow Art Fair.
What fun!! I have never seen such a packed craft house! We were there from ten in the morning until one o'clock the next morning. Intense, you say? Yes...but so well worth it.
My new set-up. My dreamiest photo moment yet.
My mouth is huge.
The crowd of fellow crafters were so talented and super friendly. I saw some familiar faces from some of the Handmade Detroit events that I've done, so that put my little nervous heart at ease. There was such diversity in the crowd! God, I love the Ann Arbor area. I had a chance to talk to some really interesting people and meet a couple repeat customers face to face.
My little brother Shaun was my wingman for the morning until husband Clint came to help me out for the evening. I had been a total idiot and volunteered for a half table (which I will never do again, for sure) and we were squished into a little three foot space. But...how could I complain? At least I was there and business was brisk, baby! We sold about half of what we brought with us...success, bitches!
The crowd...blurry, but insane!
Selling alongside Taryn from Talking Squid, Sean Hages and Thomas of St. Joshua Norton Press. (Also making trades and purchases from these fine craftspeople as well.)
Working alongside my lil brother, who didn't flinch at all when people asked him if he was the artist who made the brooches. (ha!) and my real-life lover, Clint, who has to be the best, most genuine salesperson ever.
Coffee from Roos Roast saved my life several times throughout the day.
