HHB total success in my book!

HHB was held yesterday and I wanted to thank all of the vendors that came to the show. I know it wasn't a huge monetary success for everyone but I think overall the show was great. We had a fantastic location, BEAUTIFUL weather, and traffic all day. We did close up shop little earlier than we advertised because we forgot about the time change and even with closing early we were helping people pack in the dark. While we were finishing up my stuff was on the lawn and the sprinklers went (reclaimed water nonetheless)on super quick. Dan with his fast thinking covered on of the heads and Stacey, Doug and I moved most of the stuff before it got soaked.

I will post pictures of the show later. This is my little Oscars thank you for the production of HHB 2008 I wanted to thank Karrie of Fiberologie for allowing us to have the show and open up on her day off for us ( and for her staff for coming in too), Mike of Nova for allowing us the use of his space, Limeys for being fantastic to deal with, before, during and after the show. Mark, Mike, Jessi and Jodi really helped us out and everyone appreciated the discount. All of the places we had that published about the show Creative Loafing, Skirt, St. Pete Times, and TBT. My folks and sister for coming and helping us during the day. Doug ( Stacey's husband) who helped multiple people unload, set-up and strip down and was as super good sport. Dan (my husband) for being there all day and watching the booth while I was chatting away, I know it was his IDEAL Sunday. He also helped Doug with setting up and stripping down vendors spaces. Lastly Stacey my partner in crime for this event. I would have never been able to do this without her. She is uber organized and always thought of things I didn't. I know planning this was not easy for her with her family, work and etsy life but we did it. Pluse she made me an AWESOME apron.. I am so glad we decided to take a chance. We wanted to do a show we were proud of, Mission Accomplished.
