Geared up for stART
I'm *almost* ready for stART on the street. Ok, I really have a billion more things I'd like to make, but I am very proud of the new products I was able to complete this year in time for the show. My booth this year will feature a pile of felted soaps (I was able to finish 30 of them!), and 10 new nuno scarves (though I'm still working on these!). I hope to have my coffee sleeves and vendor/craft aprons done as well. Thought I don't have time to make the card cases and ipod covers like I had hoped. Maybe I'll get some of those done for the December shows.
Soon I'll have to put down my fabrics and wool and start working on my setup. I want to improve the layout of my booth from last year, which tended to feel a little closed in. I think I'll move the pegboard sandwichboards to the back of the booth, even though I'll only be able to use one side. I also bought a 4 ft table to setup along with my 6 ft table. So I should have a pretty good layout. Next week I'll set up my tables in my living room and lay out the products I want to bring to figure out any new display items I might need. I'll need to figure something out for my nuno scarves and coffee sleeves. But I have some ideas up my sleeve.
Anyway the count down has really begun, only 19 more days until Start on the Street!! Hope to see you there! For more info: stART on the Street.
