We’re home! We had so much fun in NYC. The weather was beautiful and perfect. There is never enough time to do everything or eat everything! We went to Times Square, up to the tippy top of the Empire State Building, got lost in the subway for 2 hours, ate hot dogs at Katz’s Deli, got cereal-milk milkshakes from Momofuku Milk Bar, went fabric shopping at Mood, t-shirt shopping in Soho, stayed in an apartment in the East Village, strolled through Central Park, ate pizza at Lombardi’s, hung out with different friends every day, but there were still so many things left on the list to do. Next time, next time!
I need to get photos and video from Manda for a full NYC post, but here are some teaser photos of the Bust Craftacular off my iPhone.
It’s always hard to predict what might sell at any given craft fair, but overall, it was a really good day. The new Square app for the iPad is super awesome. I want to make a video clip just of that to show you guys. We logged in all our items beforehand, and when people made purchases, all we had to do was touch photos of items, and prices would be totaled automatically. Gotta love technology!
So Manda disappeared for a while, later in the day, saying she was going to buy something from a booth that was selling charms. She bought some prezzies and also came back with a prezzie for moi! She had them engrave “bff” on the round charm.
We hadn’t really eaten much the whole day, and I saw someone come by my booth eating what looked like a miniature ice cream scoop cupcake on a cone. When Manda left for the 2nd time to visit the charm bracelet booth, I said, “INTERN!! BRING ME AN ICE CREAM CONE BROWNIE THING!!” She did.
And it was so super yummy!
There are a lot more photos…and VIDEO…from the trip. If you are a blog reader, and we took a picture together on your camera, please do feel free to send it to me to post on my blog!
For now, I will concentrate on getting all the leftover items up on Etsy and re-opening the shop. I will do my usual post-craft-fair sale as well. Mostly the more spendy items like scarves are deeply discounted, but there’s still a little break on smaller items like mitts and hats as well. I’ll letcha guys know when that goes up!
