I’ve been kinda nervous all day waiting to find out if I did or did not get into the Unique LA Holiday Show. You may recall I did their summer show which was a lot of fun and a big succes.
But I’m happy to report that I made the cut!
I think what probably put me over the top was that I paired up with a new Etsy friend, Trisha who runs a shop called Matchbook Memories.
Trisha takes what are called “feature” matchbooks which is this absolutely cool “lost” art where the matches all have images on them so they look like this:
I knew the competition to get a slot was tough – they had 600+ applicants for 300 spots – so I was honestly anxious.
So now a brief celebration but then I’ve really got to get cracking because, along with creating enough stock for the two day Unique show (and designing a booth), I just got a wholesale order for 300 coasters and another for upwards of 120 custom (I have to design them) corporate coasters.
So, it’s off to the workshop for me!
If I don’t post again soon please send someone to check under the largest pile of sawdust in the garage.
