Spring Trunk Show 2013

Last month, some of my fellow small-business mamas and I came together for a spring trunk show. I had all of the best intentions for this event, but time ran simply away from me.  Before I knew it, it was the week of the show and I had very little inventory (YIKES!) 

Somehow, though, when everything was laid out, my table didn’t look as empty as I had feared. (Thank goodness!)  It was one of our smaller events, but it turned out lovely nonetheless.

My fabric necklaces were a hit this time around.  I find it so amusing how certain items sell out at one event and are completely overlooked at the next!  That’s why I have such a variety!!

I debuted some flannel burp cloths and those were popular as well.  I think I only returned home with only 2 burp cloths out of the 15 I brought.  The necktie applique burp cloths sold out!  ❤

Mustachio coin purses, anyone??

I adore getting together with these ladies!!  We have already started discussing a back-to-school event…keep your eyes peeled!



Third Annual Shop and Sip Holiday Trunk Show

Hi friends!  Remember me?  😉 

I’m sorry I’ve been missing in action.  Moving is tough!  So is living with relatives!  I won’t even get into my daily routine, because honestly, it’s late and I am tired enough already!

I hope you all have had an amazing new year so far!  I’m planning to rock the heck out of 2013!  Who’s with me??

I know this is a little late, but I wanted to share some photos from the 2012 Shop and Sip Holiday Trunk Show.  This is the third year I have co-hosted this totally fab handmade shopping event.  My homie (and then partner-in-crime) Autumn and I hosted the first ever Shop and Sip in 2010 when AquaSeventy6 was mostly a dream.  In 2011, my friend and former neighbor Marcy and I co-hosted the second Shop and Sip.  This year, Shop and Sip had four lovely co-hosts: Marcy of Kaiya Designs, Kara of Simply Vintage Candles, Jasmine of R & E Avenue and, of course, yours truly.

I have to apologize in advance for the quality of these photos.  One day we will splurge on a professional photographer, but for now, my handy-dandy iPhone will have to suffice!  🙂

Here’s my table.  Do you remember this Rag Ribbon Table Skirt?
I made over 115 items!

I spy some Elephant Karavan Pillows!

My Mustachio Coin Purses sold out!

Fabric Button Jewelry is always a big hit!

I only made three of these Christmas trees, and one lovely client bought them all!
Loved meeting all of these beautiful shoppers!

What I loved most about this show is that it was also a toy drive for Toys for Tots!

Here we are surrounded by all of the wonderful toy donations!  AH-MAH-ZING!
