My first show!

Sunday, August 11, 2013

Yesterday, I did my first show! I was at the Coldwater Steampunk Festival.  I had no idea what to expect, but it ended up being a lot of fun! I'm already excited about next year.

It was a great learning experience.  It was a small show, with just a small number of vendors at the Coldwater Museum.  They had a really great side show, musicians, a tea party... it was really fun.  Plus, I got to wander around the museum which was absolutely full of treasures, like old sewing machines and supplies (including a dressmakers doll), and a vintage perm-machine (photo later in the post) which was kind of terrifying, but awesome.  It was a great opportunity to chat with people from the area, and now I totally want to move to Coldwater....

I had never done anything like this before, so I really wasn't sure how much to prepare, or what I would need.  Considering Dan and I pulled many of these things together late Friday night, we put together a pretty good booth.  I have lots of ideas for next time... and am dreaming of having a booth at some bigger events in Orillia next summer (time permitting!).

The best part of the day is that Abbey came to visit me.  She hung out with Dan and I for half the day, then we all went for dinner afterwards.  It was a great day.  Though, I am exhausted today....
