A little bit about the Evolution show Antonio recently returned from. Traffic was slow & we didn't sell as much as we hoped. This was the first year for the Evolution show & it can take time to draw a sizable crowd. The show organizer did a wonderful job with the space & set up so we are hopeful this show continues to grow.
I know it sounds glamorous to announce that you are headed off to this show or that show. But, did you know that I've been doing this 10 years in January & there have been shows we've go to where I sell only 1 or 2 things. Or my personal favorite... loose your bags & not have them arrive until the last day- Yep, it did happen in Germany at Heimtextil 3 years ago.
From the comfort of a curated blog it is easy to make it all look rosy. The truth is it can be fun but it is also a TON of work with no guarantee. When you are enjoying the work it makes it easier to navigate all the ups & downs.
I thought it was important to be honest about this. On that note... I will be exhibiting at Printsource this January. I will be at the show with Antonio this time & have some really fun work available. So, my friends the show must go on! (where is that weird quote from anyway?)
