rock the coliseum

So this past weekend was rock the coliseum, our once-a-year summer pop-up shop. & it went pretty well-- sales were definitely on the low-side, so you always find yourself speculating why that was. It could have been the almost-raining weather on friday, the new location of the stage or maybe it was our booth set-up? Anyway, no matter what the reasons, we could be down on ourselves or we can just be happy that it pushed us to pump out a ton of new stock & forced us to get out there & meet cool people!

We've always ended up meeting someone that brings us new opportunities, our first year we met a girl that became one of our best customers. Last year, we met someone involved with a big university fashion show which we donated a product to this year & may end up participating in again. And THIS year, well, I see another opportunity presenting itself already but i'm not going to talk about it quite yet, lest I jinx it! haha

All in all, we had a great time & realize how lucky we are to have friends and family who are always willing to help two small girls with all the heavy lifting :)

I have hundreds of pics, so I've tried to sum up the weekend in just a couple dozen! Enjoy! (ps, i returned my canon rebel xs and 50mm lens, opting for the nikon d3000. not sure if my noob pics really represent any difference in the quality of either camera though...)

  1. Cuts are for livejournal, I like not having to click on the cut to look at all the pictures.

    Yay for Konad! It looks like you're having lots of fun with it, and I like the set up you guys had for your section

    Soon I'll save up money to get a rosette necklace, although I think I'll just nudge my boyfriend into doing so.

  2. I'm glad cuts are for LJ! this is liberating to me ;)

    Konad is so much fun, everyone that I've shown so far has gone and bought a set too! I keep just using the same floral design on my one nail plate though-- might be time to invest in a couple more! haha
