Market is over. It is a bittersweet feeling. The pressure is off but there is a whole year looming in front of the next one that I will exhibit at. I love the experience, the fun, the work and especially the people. I have a bunch of pictures, so I thought I would just show you my booth pictures. Maybe tomorrow I will post more pictures of the fun we had in Portland.
Here is the booth prior to them putting down the sea of blue carpet.
I had initially planned to have a giant elephant in the booth, but then they couldn’t get it to me in time. I was really happy with the way it turned out in the end, but there were some moments of panic when I was starting from scratch AGAIN in April!
We had Glamps and lanterns hanging at the front of the booth.
One of my fabulous mannequins from Paris is showing off the new Make It Snappy pattern line. Isn’t she beautiful? And get a load of that pink VELVET chair. I drool.
We had plenty of bench and seating space for our customers to come in, sit down, and make a lovely little trinket to take with them. One of my favorite things is having the opportunity to get to know my customers and making a project with them is a great way to do that.
Even the supplies for the projects look pretty….
I love these pants. They are comfortable and flattering. And they sold REALLY well!
No Quilted Fish booth would be complete without a big bowl of Swedish Fish or, as we call them, Red Herrings.
Everyone wanted to steal our trunks. And look at the blue carpet. Wow.
I can’t tell you how excited I was when this happened….
2nd place booth award for double booth. A dream come true! I was proud….and a little ridiculous. There are some strange looks going on there…..but that is pretty normal for me.
Oh, and my hands aren’t dirty. That’s henna. I will show you more of that tomorrow!
