Crafty Wonderland’s Super Colossal Sale was amazing to Richard and I this year. We took a lot of time to set up our booth to make it really eye catching, which if you are a vendor is a pretty critical element to a good sale. Another necessity for a good sale is choosing your shows wisely. Participating in a show that is well run and marketed, which Cathy Pitters and Torie Nguyen have in spades can make your sale experience incredible. No matter where you live, Crafty Wonderland is a show that is worth traveling to and selling at.
Our booth was hoppin’ almost the entire time of this 2 day event. Richard and I both loved meeting shoppers, new shop owners interested in carrying our work and the sheer joy of selling our art. We hung the DIY Lounge sign on the front of our booth even though we were selling for our other businesses, Knot Ugly Designs and Sinister Concept.
We had so much fun and we are truly grateful to all of the folks who came out and shopped, which was somewhere in the neighborhood of 12,000 people I think I heard. It was an honor to sell next to all the amazing handmade artists who’s work was represented at Crafty Wonderland and the biggest thank you of all to the show organizers.

I am re-reminded again and again that this is a great community and I am so fortunate to be part of this amazing artistic scene!
