I participated in my first ever craft show this past Saturday, November 15, 2014! The Gowling Christmas Craft Show took place at a local elementary school in Ottawa's west end and generated a good crowd of shoppers. impressus received many positive comments, which was wonderful to hear after many weekends spent preparing for this show. Shoppers admired the streamlined design and simplicity of my paper goods and were very impressed (no pun intended :) with the process of letterpress printing once explained. The wood veneer gift tags were very popular as well!
Here are few photos of my booth:
In overall, it was a very positive experience and a good first impression when it comes to exhibiting my work at these types of community events. I made new friends and established few potential business relationships and really enjoyed the support offered by fellow vendors. There was a lot of talent in the room and I'm very proud of having been a part of this show. I sure hope to be back next year!
