Well, I have a Renegade show under my belt now! I was pretty nervous going into this show because I’ve never done a Renegade before, and I feel like it is held so highly in the “craft fair world.” It has really made a name for itself throughout the country (and London!) and I’m so excited I got to be a part of the L.A. show this weekend.
Sharing a booth with Gina
Hearing “oh I’ve bought these on Etsy”
Meeting a self-proclaimed “fan girl”
A woman sharing how my cancer card
she previously bought “touched a lot of people”
Seeing Nasim from SNL (we are avid SNL watchers here)Nearly selling out of my new swearing sticker set (ordering more today!) Meeting the owner of Native Bear! (I was the fan girl then)The smiles, the laughs, the reactions (priceless)
Getting asked “Do you have those pencils?” because of the sneak peek
I shared (coming soon!)
I had a great time! I have a lot of work to get done this week because I get to do it all over again next weekend at Renegade S.F.! The thought is daunting, but exciting. Getting more involved in the local (and not so local) craft seen was one of my goals for this year. I really like the thought of bringing JAA face-to-face with new crowds. Word of mouth is a form of advertising I am really trying to encourage and I think meeting people at shows is a great start to that.
Ok, time to go make a strong cup of coffee…in a cocktail shaker. Yep. I cracked my french press on Friday and desperately resorted to using a cocktail shaker to brew my coffee. It actually turned out pretty tasty. Maybe I should do a DIY post on it? ;] xo JA
