I'm about a week late but here we are. The Handmade Market last week was a great experience. It was really the first show I've done where the crowd was right (not in a middle school hallway or in a town with population of 500). It felt really good to have people stop by my table and come back to buy something. Some pictures of my table (which could have been a lot bigger):
I got the only space with some natural light.
This is what Eric did during the show...kidding! He was very helpful.
After the show was over we packed up and headed to the Rainbo Club on Damen and Division for a few celebratory cocktails.
I'll be listing the leftover inventory from the show in my etsy shop over the next week. Check back for a preview!
My mom came to visit us in Chicago this weekend. We went to a wedding dress shop and I tried on an endless array of dresses.
I feel the need to get opinions and I wish my sister could have been with us. So yesterday I did something I shouldn't have done. I made Eric look at all the pictures we took. I told him to just tell me if he liked a dress or if he didn't like a dress. I was supposed to keep my mouth shut and not let on to which dresses were my favorites. First dress - a resounding "no". His favorite dress was a plain and strapless number.
This may be one of the reasons why you're not supposed to show the groom your dress. I know he'll think I'm beautiful in whatever dress I wear. But how cool is this dress? How could he hate it?
