Thank you, New York!

Thank you, New York!

It took me all week to get around to blogging about my trip to NYC, how lame is that? I'm a slacker.

Honestly, the week has been a huge attempt to get back to reality, and also to get my feet to stop swelling. We did SO much walking, my feet protested heartily!
Where did we walk to, you ask? Well, with the help of the subway system, we made [many] appearances at ETSY LABS [yay] and Renegade Craft Fair [where we bought lots of swag, and then were stormed on by angry Brooklyn skies] - and we met LOTS of wonderful Etsy people, to the point where it's surprising that I can remember all the names, but they are all such vibrant personalities that there's no way that I can forget them! We ate tons of delicious food, drank too much coffee, stayed up too late, and spent too much money on cute things. Wheee!
I'll post a couple of other photos with some other tales from our trip in a bit. You can also come check out my album of photos here.

So this is where I'll be this weekend, meeting and greeting the Etsy folk who have made it out to celebrate the Birth Of Etsy! I hope to see many of you there - it's my first trip to Etsy Labs! Also, I'll be checking out the Renegade Craft Fair, also in Brooklyn. LOTS of awesome sellers will be there, and I hope to come away with much booty and also some new friendships. Rarrr!

It will also be Rob's first time to NYC, and oooooh are we excited! I'm an old hand at navigating the Big Apple, but there's always new things to try and see. We'll be staying at the New Yorker Hotel in Midtown, and using the subway an awful lot, I think.

SO exciting!

Vending with Snitches Get Stitches and our team effort, Coffin Color Mineral Eyeshadow - sure does seem like my table got colourful for this event! ;)

So this weekend was yet another learning experience in vending.
Honestly, I didn't expect to sell anything of my own, hence the scanty table setup of my products, and the highlighting of the Coffin Colors products. This was also our opportunity to debut our eyeshadows to a crowd and see the reactions of the shoppers. I'm here to tell you that it was a ROARING success, and I'm SO thrilled that people seemed to really like them!

Melissa and I had a blast anyway, and I think she ended up doing very well. I managed to get the flax-filled eyepillows and a new shower gel ready in time, as well as two new Lip Bliss Lip Balms - strawberry and coffee! Here's hoping that some of those sell on Etsy soon, as I need seed money for other things. [meeple!]

In other news, I got TWO NEW ORDERS OF FIBER in [YAY] from the ever-fabulous
I'm currently working on a green and burgundy selection - I'll put up photos when I have a chance. I'm spinning this one up in a thinner version than the Monster Mash - the plan is for now to ply it, but we'll see how I feel as I get farther into the spinning.

Man. I really really need to update my website. O_o Procrastination, thy name is Xiane.
