Back in the day, we’d head to Vegas for a tradeshow looking a bit like the Clampetts. Dusty car overflowing with funky “vintage” furniture, suitcases, paint by numbers pictures, plastic storage boxes… you name it. Everything we could hope to need to create a great vintage funky “room” out of our booth. And it worked! Every time, every show, a new fun funky booth exploding with flea market charm…. it looked just like us…. totally, unquestionably “Hopscotch”. We loved it!
Now that our wonderful reps have the rest of the country covered, the only tradeshow we need/want to do anymore is ENK. So, it’s off to New York twice a year…. on a plane…. yuck! How are we expected to create a booth with all the fun, funky, vintage charm that we want our boutique owners to see when they come to visit. I have to admit, it’s been a struggle. We’re on show number three in the big apple and, while I think each of the first two booths had their strong points, we haven’t been able to recreate that “we just emptied out our sewing studios of all their flea market finds into this amazing crazy booth” feel. I’m not certain we will ever get to do that again… without a bigger budget!
However, this time we may just have found something just as charming if not better… Butterflies!!! Last Spring we intoduced our Fantasy Dress. A beautiful girly dress with a collection of handmade butterflies fluttering across it. This Summer we let those same handmade butterflies lose all over out booth…. amazing! It’s so girly and over the top that we can’t help but love it! Let us know what you think.
