140: the clothing show - day two
So yesterday, I was completely burned out & tired from a long night at the show. But today I was totally re-energized & was feeding off the awesome energy from our customers & friends who came to visit!
We had a really awesome day in terms of sales & we also had tons of awesome visitors. Our parents & sister came by to visit with snacks for us & we met some readers!
This photo was taken by Raymond Chow of CanadaWears.ca!
We learned about his site exactly a year ago when he took photos of our stuff on the Clothing Show Runway-- we later found out that one of his cousins married one of our cousins (cause he had a photo of us at that wedding! whaaaat.) What does that make us? Cousins by marriage? I dunno. He's a cool dude though & takes amazing runway shots.
We also met some readers (hi Amanda from featherband! & other girls), some future interviewers (hi iris & phoenix!) & some people that previously featured us on their site (hi cute girl that works at trendhunter!). ANNDDD we met Care Failure from the band Die Mannequin! We had made her some reconstructed tees before & had done the transaction through a mutual friend & we just met her today!
I just wish that we had the presence of mind to take photos with our new friends :( It's tough trying to keep track of selling and sales & be really social too. ah well! maybe tomorrow. ♥
NOTE TO SELF: MORE PICS WITH BUDDIES TOMORROW.
On the drive down to the show, we also saw a DELOREAN on the road. it had the license plate "OUTATIME". SERIOUSLYYYYYY. It's cause it's the anime north comic con this weekend in Toronto, I think?

Okay, I'm so tired that my brain is starting to blank out & I'm not even sure what I just wrote. haha. Thanks so much for all the sweet comments & support lately! We've been terrible at responding to comments but hope to be back in the swing of things in a week or so.
