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...)
