Indie Emporium - The Debriefing of Day 2

We rearranged the booth on day 2 to be more open and inviting. We wanted people to browse, touch, try on, admire, etc. I think the lights being on helped us as well.There was definitely more space for people to walk around in the booth with two sides open than there was when the booth was a big u.
Dawn entertained people both young and old with her spinning all day. I didn't get to catch her demo, but I did get to watch off and on during the day. He booth was right across from ours, which made it fun and easy to harass each other.
This kid was adorable and the parents were nice enough to let me take a picture.
This kid was adorable too. 99% of the time that Bridgette was holding him he was smiling and giggling, but I couldn't resist posting this pouty picture.

And these adorable children belong to a couple old friends of mine. How cute are they???

Anyway, business was better for me on day 2 and I did make some awesome swaps and buy some awesome stuff. (coming in the next post: The Loot) I saw a lot of people I know come through and it was fun to see people I hadn't seen in a while. The box lunches from Dilly Deli were wonderful and I really hope they do that again next year!!! The camaraderie among the vendors was wonderful and the silent auction seemed to go fairly well.

I did stay for the fashion show, which was a lot of fun. I wish I had thought to take pictures during it. Oh, but I can't forget to mention that before the fashion show Sherri and I had dinner at Mods Crepes and I am in love! I had never been there before but I am definitely going back again! For dinner it was the spicy turkey cranberry and for dessert Nutella and banana. (yes, I ate 2. Wanna make something of it? Actually, that dessert one I took to go and ate later in the evening) There were some designs in the fashion show that I could totally see myself wearing and other things that were so far fetched I couldn't picture anyone wearing it. But that's how fashion shows always go, huh?

I'm very excited about next year. The dates have already been announced - the last weekend in September. If you didn't come out and see us this year, then you definitely have to next year!!!
