recession, reschmession: a near mob-scene at Urban Craft Uprising

Posted by on

Wow.  Was this winter’s UCU show nuts!  From the moment the doors opened each morning, my fellow vendors and I were mobbed with record-breaking numbers of shoppers.  It was exhilarating to feel the support and enthusiasm of the Seattle community.

Not only did I sell out of nearly every one of a kind bag I brought, I also met so many fantastic people, including Callista, winner of my UCU interview giveaway and Anna with her original custom gray troubadour.  You have her to thank that I offer it as a core part of my collection today. I also somehow managed to sneak away from my booth to purchase presents for all of my nieces and nephews.  . .and picked up some perfumejewelry and journals just for me!

A big thank you to organizers of UCU and to the fantastic shoppers & customers who attended the show and spread the word!  We love you!!
