Well, we are back! Indie Emporium 2011 has come and gone and it was a really great show. Thanks to much help from my lovely bearded assistant, we had our best show yet at our biggest booth yet! We had a nice corner booth to display all out things….
The cups did well, and I met many a Jane Austen and Jane Eyre fan! What is so fun about these shows is finding so many kindred spirits who love the same things you do— in my case old timey girls, good books, spooky autumn scenes.

Here’s a shot of the rose pins and the knitted hats. I was surprised actually at the success of the knitted hats. I made them to put the roses on, but people were wanting just the hats sometimes, lol. Which of course is fine by me!
And I couldn’t talk about this craft show without talking about this! The Square
. It’s the new thing now in crafting. You order the little white square (plugged into the top of the iPhone), sign up for the service (which is totally free!) and voila! You can now take all major credit cards at your craft booth. You only pay a tiny fee per transaction and I think this little accessory played a big part in making this our most lucrative show to date. Many of the vendors at this show had this, I know it will soon become a must-have for all crafters. It used to be, people only brought cash to these shows and if they found something they loved that exceeded their on-hand funds, it was just too bad. Now, it’s not a problem! Just swipe the card! 😀
All in all, it was a really good show. I met some really great vendors and customers as well. I hope everyone that bought a little something (or big something) from our booth loves it! It’s always such a pleasure to do this show.
Now, to rest a bit and then paint some more!~
