Craft Fairs, Business Planning and Pretzels - Oh, My!

What a week! Not only were we selected to show at the Strange Folk Festival, but we also made the cut for Handmade Happy Hour, as well as approached for several other potential business opportunities. By Friday, our heads were swimming and it was clear we needed one thing: a business planning lunch.

We chose Perennial Artisan Ales for its inspiring atmosphere, tasty food. Oh...and they have good beer.

We have alot to do before the Sept. 29th Strange Folk Fest -- we started mapping out our space and figuring out how much merch we'll need. Since we are limited to a 10 ft x 10 ft space, we can only feature so many of our tables.  For the most part, Jeff will be focusing on those (although, I'll be apprenticing these next couple of months). I'm in charge of filling the rest of the space with delicious home goods. And, I'm not talking the baked variety.

We'll be holding off on offering any of these in our Etsy store, as we will be stockpiling them for the festival. Don't worry...what doesn't sell there will be offered in our store! Here's a peek of what I've been working on:

Stay tuned...we plan on offering a wide variety of vintage and handmade items for your home. We're loving every finished piece and we hope you do, too!
