My morale hasn’t been down but I’ve definitely felt it….flagging? I’ve been busy but factory-mode busy.
Etsy has been slow but my wholesale accounts are stocking up for spring. It has been great (really!) but it has had me running around re-making what I’ve already made and I’m finding myself keen to get some new stuff going. However, ideas have been few and far between.
But! The there is no time to wait around for inspiration to strike! It’s time to get going and get going I must.
Before every show Sonja (the woman who invented Unique LA) has a vendor meeting where she goes over the rules and also manages a bit of inspiration.
This year her inspiration was to think about what your story is and how your booth can tell that story.
So I’m wondering both what Cheltenham Road’s story is and how do I translate that to my booth?
Now, I think we all know “my story” is that I smack my head into things a lot…….but that’s probably not the side I want to present to the general public.
And although my booth design has been improving over the years
I think the story I’ve been telling with it is “I managed to make it here in one piece and here’s my stuff!”
So, as those of you who follow me on Pinterest have probably noticed, I’ve been pinning booth design ideas like crazy (because that’s so much for fun then actually doing it!).
The goal is to create a cohesive spot that looks like a little store and tells, or at least reflects, the Cheltenham Road Style/Story.
I also need a lot of new product.
I have two weeks.
So join me won’t you! I’m planning to post projects as I finish them (this will also force me to actually do it rather than daydream about doing it) and I’ve found that all of you have great insights into things. So please weigh in with thoughts and ideas. I may not be able to incorporate all of them but anything that sparks an idea will be incredibly valuable!
