Steampunk Street was a blast!

The costumes were out in full force and I wished I had been able to go check out the other vendors and the art exhibits, I know it must've been awesome, but it was an awesome crowd! I didn't sell as much as I'd hoped but got out a ton of business cards, so that rocks =)

The weather was icky, windy =( And I forgot some of my canopy weights! Jeff had to go back home to get them which left me super behind in getting setup but he was a trooper and helped once he got back with the weights. With my lights and sidewalls up my booth was I think the one respite from the cold and wind =)

My cool new steampunk pieces were a big hit with the crowd which rocks because they were by far the closest I have come to producing truly steampunk work, so I couldn't be happier with that. I didn't sell as much as I wanted but for a 4 hour street fair, but I had really good traffic and got out a lot of business cards, truly my main goal. The organizer for Wild West Con was there and mentioned the 2012 Steampunk show in Tuscon (he'd been keeping his eye open for artists he'd like to see there) and told me how awesome my work was and that I should set up as a vendor next year. I don't know if I could handle the logistics of that (3 days, I don't have a helper, can hubby feed the birds?), but the validation couldn't be more amazing!

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes and thanks to all those that visited my booth, you were all so awesome!


  1. Sounds great! It will be good if you can find a way to do the big show next year.

  2. I know, it would be great and such an awesome experience I know. He said they plan to keep the booth fees modest, too, which rocks, this year I think he said they were around $250, so not bad at all.

  3. Sounds like you had a really good fair

  4. Love the steam punk stuff you are doing.

    Thanks for visiting my site and leaving kudos.
