eI am way overdue for a post on how much fun I had at the Stop and Shop Show!
The show was great! I was so impressed with the way that Jenna and Ally ran the show, they are two super-amazing chicks and so great to work with. I had a great booth space, it was right up front, you couldn't ask for a better spot! It was great to meet the other vendors and see what they had for sale.And this time I had a cute little helper for the whole weekend.... I am not used to such great help and I felt compleatly pampered all weekend. I was also impressed that everything was so different. For example, there were 5 different booths selling bags, but every one was different from each other. If you have time, I suggest you check out Bootyfly bags as they are really cool and I see people with them all the time! And if you love jewelery too, check out Beadjuled for some unique jewelry that Ally Ng makes.
I picked up a hobo style bag from Silver lining in a great green color. I am a big big fan of green, it's my favorite color and if I am not careful, everything I buy is green and I look a little like Sprout. Anyhow, I am really impressed with the quality of this bag. I know how to sew, and the fact that this is handmade is so amazing. It's perfect! You couldn't tell that it was handmade at all, the quality is so good. I am looking forward to picking up another one in the future!
I did pick up a gift for a friend with a science degree too... from The Phage. This is a really cool company that hand screens t-shirts and underwear with closeups of bacteria and other science related themes. My favorite was the Double Helix.
But I spent my week relaxing with a book, "That must not be named" of course. (And not doing much else until the book was finished!) It was great, I really enjoyed reading it. I thought the ending was very well done, as it leaves the adventures finished without hope of a badly written sequel to the saga in 5 years time. I think it will make a great movie too...
But I have some new ideas for my line of bags.... I have had SO MANY requests for MAN BAGS that I think I am ready to design and launch a new mens line. It's hard to guess what my man friends like, but thankfully they are picky enough to give requests. Robots... men seem to like robots?
Otherwise... have a super week!
