What a great weekend we had at the Make It Show. For those who are not familiar with this event, it is a market that happens twice a year with close to 200 handmade artisans at the PNE Forum. There is such a vast variety of talented vendors that I always end up buying something at every show!
It was great seeing fellow vendors from previous shows, as well as meeting new ones. But the highlight for me was when our regular Make It customers stopped by to say hi and even made time to chit chat.
Handmade markets like Make It provide an intimate environment for vendors and customers to mingle and I find that there's never any pressure to buy. Which means you don't have to feel bad when you say "I'll look around some more" or "No thanks, I'll pass".
A slight disappointment that happened during set up was our sign. The hook on the back had broken off and we ended up standing it on the floor. In replacement, we used our smaller sign which was tiny compared to the size of our booth!
This was our third show at Make It and we are looking forward to our next one in December.
