Well, I got confirmation about my booth at the PNE Forum. I heard that they expect a lot of people to show up because of past attendances. Now MakeIt will no longer will it be at the Croatian Cultural Center, but has made a move to the bigger Forum building. For anyone who’s been to the summer PNE, it’s where the MarketPlace shops are. It’s going to be an exciting and huge push for the PikuHibu craft owl business to have a booth at the MakeIt Craft Show in Vancouver this fall. There will be 250 vendors, aka “makies”, there all selling their handmade goodies and showcasing their amazing talent. I think it will bring great exposure to a lot of the artisans and the craft community in Vancouver.
I will be bringing to the craft show my plush owls, polymer clay figurines and key chain charms, as well photo cards. Also, there will be a variety of owl ornaments. I look forward to bringing a good selection of items to my booth!
Having sold some of my owls recent to the Vancouver Public Library Bookmark store, that’s given more confidence about selling my crafts beyond just my circle of friends, and getting their feedback has been very helpful as well.
So until then, there’s a lot of work to be done (owl production!) and a bit more set-up on the social media end of things, like setting up more the PikuHibu Etsy store site and later on a Cafepress site. Be sure the check out the new twitter feed @pikuhibu and the facebook.com/PikuHibu page.
