I wanted to share a couple shots from the studio and give you a peek at some of the things we've been working on!
|There will be feathers!|
|Our bags with our new custom stamp via Kozue & pretty fabric tape!|
|Vintage fabrics for some new menswear products!|
|Sweet little kitty feet.|
|Handy dandy basket o' fabric.|
|Sewing pretty with Hello Kitty!|
|One of our new products! Vintage coin rings. :)|
|Fabrics for our display.|
|Kaito helps adjust the products.|
1. Pace yourself: focus on one thing at a time when making products and set small goals throughout the day. Also, it never hurts to reward yourself every now and then for finishing a set of products! We've become regulars at Starbucks. ;)
2. Keep a running list of things you need to bring to the fair. (tape, cash box, hammer, phone charger etc.) Especially if you're traveling a distance, you don't want to be without an important necessity!
3. Make sure you know your space dimensions so that you can set up a "mock" booth to get an idea about how you will display your products and what you still might need to purchase. Take photos of your mock booth so on the day of the show you already know where everything goes.
4. Budget! You definitely want to turn in a profit rather than cross your fingers in hopes of coming even with your supply and entry costs. Pre-plan what products you'll sell, your display ideas, and set a supply budget ahead of time.
