I’m happy to report that my very first Renegade Show was a complete success!
I confess, though not superstitious really, I was taken aback when I realized my booth number was 13.
I decided to think of it a Lucky Booth 12B and I was right.
Set up on Saturday went smoothly and my new(ish) displays worked exactly how I wanted them to. I designed them to be modular so I could re-arrange them to suit the situation. You’ll recall at Unique LA they were two towersAt Renegade, for an enclosed booth space I set them up accordion style along the walls (please forgive the lousy camera phone photos).The first day was slow buying-wise although I did a brisk business in handing out business cards.
However, a reporter for the LA Times came around and liked my work. I’m quite honored that he chose to feature my stuff (OK, “featured” is kind of a strong word) in his Top Picks on the LA Times Home and Garden Blog!
Day two was terrific! And Lucky Booth 12B was busy all day. The heat was pretty intense which made me want to nap but apparently made my fellow Angelenos want to shop. And shop they did!
In short it was a great way to end a summer season of shows and now it’s time to get ready for the holidays!
