Out and About

Oh my - time certainly moves quickly this time of year! My poor little blog has suffered due to the general craziness in life but I didn't forget about it - it just got put on the back burner for a bit.

Well, I've got 5 shows down and only 1 left on my hectic craft show schedule. I've certainly learned a lot from all of the customer comments and what people have purchased once they actually see my jewelry in person. Another great fringe benefit on all of the craft shows is that I've actually been able to meet some of the people on the NH Street Team!

Jodi, from Happy House Quilts, was my first visitor at the Concord show. Along with her hair accessories, she also carries cute items for pets and craft kits for the younger set (or older set if you like to try new crafts also!).

During the Manchester show I was able to hook up with Michelle from Pandy's and Griffin Gear who also happened to be participating. Sherry from ThreadFed also visited during the show - she has really fun embroidery style earrings in her shop.

And last (but certainly not least!) I met Melanie from Bags by Melanie fame. Melanie joined me at the Derry show and was right at the next table. It certainly makes the day shorter when you have someone to chat to during the long hours after setup and while customers stroll through. Check out my favorite (yes! she had this one at the show and I absolutely LOVE it!) from her shop:

Melanie was so much fun to have as a show buddy and I also found out she makes everything without a pattern! This is totally impressive to little ole me - especially since the sewing machine looks like a huge monster that bites. Her fun fabrics and creativity certainly show in her bags - they're fabulous and great quality!

My next show is in Hudson NH on Dec 1st - would love to have more visitors!

Thanks Bonny, thanks to you and so many others at the show I am going to revamp that bag a little with longer straps. So keep checking because I know you want it!

I hope you did well at all of your shows. It must be so much fun to meet other Etsians. I keep meeting people who know people who sell on Etsy, but not actual Etsy sellers.

LOL--Bonny, I'm afraid that a lot of our blogs are suffering from lack of attention! It's a good thing to be busy. I am so jealous of you getting to meet all those Etsyans--how fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Smiles, Karen
