Great weekend! Fantastic Show!

    This weekend was the Mayday Underground Arts and Crafts Show.  We did this show last year and this year it was just as good, if not better!  I love getting to see the faces of people that look at our stuff.  Being an online business, you never get that experience.  It’s also a great way to test new items to see if they are worth carrying.  The moss green woman’s Poe shirt caught a lot of eyes and eventually sold.  I will have a picture of it this week because I ordered more and decided to carry it.  I took the Poe design that I already had and added a twist.  I love the way it turned out.
     During the show Nicole and I met another vendor at the show who was interested in how I screened the onesies.  He was a screen printer also but was at the show selling handmade fairy doors.  They were these amazing handmade doors that go in garden’s, etc.  Very cool and very original.  We eventually started talking about our experiences as screen printers and I mentioned how I was in need of a flash dryer.  For those of you that don’t know what this is, it’s an expensive piece of equipment that makes drying/curing inks on shirts a breeze.  He mentioned he had one that he had fixed up, that he wasn’t using.  He bought it broken from a guy for dirt cheap and fixed it, but has since gotten a new one.  I could have sold nothing at this show and could have been happy.  We got a flash dryer from this guy and it works great! Christmas will be so much easier to deal with this year.  Its been almost two days and I’m STILL totally excited about acquiring this tool!  Thanks Again Chris!
