beyond my wildest dreams
my experience at the toronto one of a kind went better than i could have ever imagined. this was based mainly on the incredible pre-show advertising i got with this shawl/scarf. and giving the spinning workshop drew attention to my work on the ooak blog and website. so i sold half my product (yarn and knitwear) in the first 2 days, and by the end of the 11 day show had completely sold out. i kept a sample of each product back - a skein of yarn, a shawl/scarf, fingerless gloves. a baby hat and a scarflette, so i was able to take orders (which i'll begin as soon as i catch my breath). because of the sucess, i've decided to do the spring show too (march 31 - april 4th) and try to keep the momentum and interest going.
to all of you blog-followers - it was lovely meeting you and having a few faces now! tomorrow - when i wake up a little more - i'll post some more show photos.
i'm off to st.john's for a few days at the end of the week, so next week my etsy shop will start filling up again...
