In case you missed Terri’s recap of our 2007 Bazarre Bizarre experience, check it out.
It was a fantastic event and once again we felt privileged and humbled to be a part of such a great show with so many creative folks selling their wares. It was nice to get a lot of repeat customers from last year, and some nice feedback (”I sent your cards out to a bunch of people and they loved them!” for one).
Some highlights were
- trading some stuff to the Shelley of Albertine Press for one of her gorgeous letterpress + marbled paper 2008 calendars.
- selling a custom moleskine that said “following my heart is my long term plan” to Ivana Clobber, founder of the Boston Derby Dames, who is quitting her job and driving across the country (several times over) and ending up in Kansas City, MO to go pro. It’s cool to think that she’ll be recording her adventures in one of our notebooks! (Even though I spelled “following” wrong on it. (Did I mention the light was sort of bad in our corner after sunset?))
- selling a surprising number of Terri’s Ladybug, Ladybug (aka, “your children will burn“) cards. We sold three to a guy who said he was just denied tenure.
