new territory


last year i decided to stop doing the craft fairs and concentrate on selling my yarn wholesale. it's going well. enough orders to keep me working comfortably. a few months ago i was presented with the opportunity of expanding into the american market. i've had lots of american sales through my etsy shop but until now, no american shops have been carrying my work. in january i'll be attending the acre orlando wholesale craft show. i'm being sponsored by the atlantic canada craft alliance and the newfoundland government. last night i set up my online shop on wholesalecraft - a site open to retailers so they can begin placing orders before the show opens. this could be big. or little. i'll just keep working at a steady pace.
i've never been to florida. never felt the heat of the sun in the winter. i'm all for first time experiences...
