Thomas, my oldest son, and my nephew all attended Crafty Bastards. Having so many helpers meant that I could walk with the kids down and watch part of the break dance competition. Then the two boys walked down and got jumbo slice for lunch. Tom and I had the box lunches that Whole Foods provided for the vendors…lucky Tom they even had a vegan option this year!
Crafty Bastards is an amazing show. They have volunteers to help you take your goods to your booth space. They had a big bunch of dollies you could use. They bring you around free lunch, had free bagels and coffee in the morning. Brought us around free bananas as a snack. Oh and free waters through out the show to keep you hydrated. They also had someone come around and collect any trash (all super helpful if you are vending on your own)
We also had the pink cupcake truck and ATM truck behind us :) We even stopped for a little frozen yogurt with bananas and walnuts for the drive home. K got blackberries and chocolate chips, and S (my nephew) got watermelon and strawberries, and chocolate syrup–a wild combination but he seemed to love his very first taste of tart frozen yogurt :)
I am totally worn out though with doing three shows in a row. It has been a couple of crazy weeks, so I am looking forward to relaxing a bit. I have had to pack/unpack those suitcases of goodies far too many times. My next show is in November–ICE Atlanta. This is my first time doing that show, and I am really excited about it.
As promised this week I am going to have some fun book info/giveaways, share some arty DIYs, and I have a couple more Halloween DIYs up my sleeves too. I love Halloween so much, so lots coming up.
