We had a great first show in Annapolis! Despite the heat, the crowd was very nice and lots of folks stopped by our booth to check out and buy our kits. We came really close to hitting the sales goal we set for ourselves and we can't wait for our next show in Williamsburg, Virginia.
We spent a lot of time getting our booth ready and it paid off. The booth definitely stood out and drew people in. We are going to make a few little tweaks to it before Williamsburg, but nothing too drastic.
The crowd in Annapolis was super friendly. It's hard to put something you've made out there - you never know how people will respond. The folks we met in Annapolis made us feel really good about what we've created.
The show also gave us a couple of ideas for other products! We will definitely be doing something with a map - a lots of people inquired about the map I painted for our display.
In addition to the friendly crowds, we also met some really nice makers and artists. One of our booth neighbors was also a husband and wife team. Their business, Trenchard Photography, is definitely worth checking out.
