Sunday Was Creative and Collective

Sunday ended up being a much better day. After dropping $1000 on the car, we had it back by Saturday evening, so a ride to the Creative Collection show was all set.

We woke up to more snow, but that didn't stop Terry and Logan. No way! They love shoveling snow. Aren't they cute?

We ended up at the Crescentwood Community Centre and in plenty of time to set up for the craft show. I even got creative and tried a bit of a new look for my table. I used a blue table cloth instead of the cream coloured one I used last time. It looked great in the fluorescent light.

I was so happy to meet tons of lovely ladies from the Winnipeg Etsy Street Team (WEST) there. It's nice to finally put faces to the names I see online all the time :D It is awesome to be a part of such a creative community!

Here is a link to the blog post I put up on the WEST blog featuring some of those lovely ladies. Check it out!

The show was great! I made a fistful of cash and had a wonderful time. The biggest surprise of the day was when a nice young woman came up to my table and inquired about a product that she'd seen on the Etsy "shop local" feature. I didn't have any feminine products displayed on the table since I was focusing solely on Child Accessories and Clothing, but she'd remembered my Bee and thought she'd inquire anyway. It never hurts to ask. I happened to have samples and she bought all of my cloth pantyliners. Awesome! I love helping an earth conscious individual find a greener alternative.

I made more for the online store, so no worries :)
