Big happenings this weekend. RENEGADE!


Today is my last full day of work before heading off to New York City as a vendor at The Renegade Craft Fair! I have been crazy nervous for weeks while I tried to amass inventory, work on my display and get a credit card machine. It's all coming together just in time and I'm finally feeling genuine excitement. I am so very thankful that I am able to participate in Renegade this year! I have actually had this as a goal in my mind before I even had a business! There are so many makers that will be showing at Renegade who I hold in such high regard that I am proud to be beside them. This is by far the biggest event I've ever been a part of!

Are any of you fine blog followers going to be selling or shopping there? Please let me know so I can look forward to meeting you!

renegade...how exciting! I wish I could make it out there. And I've been meaning to ask you if you've checked out or might even be selling at SOWA out in the South End? I keep missing out, but hopefully I'll get a table sometime before it ends in October. hooray for craft fairs! <3

Hope your Renegade was AWESOME! I had loads of fun and would do it again in a heart-beat. I speed-walked around the track saturday evening, totally overwhelmed by all the crazy-awesome booths. I looked for you, but I didn't find your booth in my whirlwind tour. I also completely missed everything that was at the park across the street. Ah well. Hope you're enjoying resting up after months of prepping!

Jess, I was so happy to meet you. Hope you had a fun time.

Heather, that would be fun! Sadly, I don't think I can manage a tent fair without a car. Hopefully by next year that won't be a problem.

Missy,
I'd love to go south even just for fun!Can I meet oreo?

Christine,
Thank you for stopping by and for all the kind internet-promotion you did after the fair!

Michelle,
I missed your booth too! what the heck? I had totally intended to visit.

Big thanks Marjorie, Brittni, Christine and Annabel for the well wishes!
