Yowza! It's been crazy crazy crazy over here in Badgerland the past two weeks, and it doesn't look like it's letting up any time soon!
Last weekend, we vended at Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle for two days. It was the most successful craft fair we've ever done! We sold out of half our pint glass designs the first day, and completely sold out of them by the end of the event. We ran out of old fashioned glasses, and almost all our soap pumps and oil bottles. Our car was much lighter and easier to pack for the ride home, but I wish there had been room in it to bring more stuff!
We had a lovely stay at the Moore Hotel, and had great food at Pike Place Market. We've only ever been in Seattle once before, about 10 years ago, and we were only passing through. It was nice to see the city a little bit, and I'm excited about returning in the summer some time.
Another fantastic thing about the UCU fair was the organization. We were inside the Seattle Center exhibition hall, which was large, very well lit, and gave customers enough room to walk around without stampeding each other. There was great music playing all day, but not so loud that we couldn't talk to each other. Volunteers frequently stopped by to ask if we needed anything, and everyone was so friendly! It was an amazingly professional show, and I can't thank the organizers enough!!
I know that it's a tough show to get into, and all the vendors had really high-quality wares. I just hope we'll have another opportunity to attend next year!
