I may have to reconsider Halloween.
I kind of gave up on the holiday once people stopped giving me free candy and my mom stopped making my costumes (it also didn’t help that, being an actor, putting on unusual clothes and parading around pretending to be someone else didn’t seem like much of a change of pace).
But Scare LA was a hoot! The crowd seemed to be having a great time and, as a vendor, I can say it was beautifully organized.
Set up on Friday was a breeze.
Kind of my usual deal (along with my usual bad photography….sorry!).
I modified a board for coaster display (since I had a limited number there was no need for the big boards)Set up my blocks (I made a few of my new Bingo Coasters into blocks as well)
The Halloween Potion Labels looked good all filled with free candy (note to self: never underestimate the power of free candy) (also, stop eating your own free candy)And I put out the big version of the coasters just as eye-catchers.I discovered I had lucked into a great booth-neighbor in Silhouettes By Jordan. (so sad he has such a confusing name for his business. Doesn’t he know the real key to success is to name your company after an obscure yet vaguely Englishy sounding road in central Ohio? Poor boy)It was astounding to watch him work with his tiny little scissors. If you have a moment be sure to check out his Facebook page and see all his fun and terrific designs.
As I mentioned previously I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the crowd.
Would they dig my vintage vibe or would they be all about the blood and guts?
They dug the vintage vibe !!!
And I’m happy to report I sold out of quite a few things and my stock on the rest is running very, very low.
All in all a great weekend and a great show.
