Brooklyn was amazing!
I’ve collected some links to other Renegade reports- the ones that mention me… yeah, because that is why I found them!
The baby stuff at coos and ahhs, a great post including a link to the fantastic marching band, here at 13th Street Studio, and my wonderful booth neighbors- Skylark Studio, Melanie Linder Design, and chez sucre chez who has also posted an excellent report. Thanks for making it such a fun neighborhood!
I saw BoBo Babushka, but missed so many fantastic people who were also exhibiting. Mostly I stayed very busy in my booth the whole 2 days. My husband ran to the local market for water and iced coffee to keep us hydrated. It was very hot both days and some crazy exciting weather on Sunday, but we survived and had a wonderful time.
I met so many nice people who came to my booth- blog readers (THANK YOU!!!), so many people from Etsy, old friends, friends of friends,and new friends. The lovely Floresita of Feeling Stitchy came by. I was so very happy to meet her. I’ve admired the fantastic job she does, keeping us fed on interesting/unusual/contempory embroidery. Richard Saja introduced himself to me, saying- We have been mentioned in the same articles. Wow- he is way more Art then me- His work is awesome.
A few funny things I remember-
toddler points at tattoo man doll and says- look! Somebody made Daddy!
Lady say- these are too expensive. I say- they are not too expensive. You just don’t want to pay that much.
Man says to me as he is walking out of the booth- Excellent business model! ( I think my mouth probably dropped in surprise)
Now, time to get back to the studio!
