Our 1st Urban Craft Uprising Booth
This weekend we were a vendor at the Urban Craft Uprising! We attended our first summer show right after we moved to Seattle two years ago, and we loved it! At the time, Brad and I shared a daydream/goal of selling at the show, and we were so excited and pleased to see that come true this weekend!
We've done small shows in the past, but this one is the best, and we wanted to rise to the occasion! We built a display shelf from scratch. It was a fun project, but it taught us that we definitely prefer working with paper than with wood! Nonetheless, we really like how it turned out, and it was so fun to see all of our new designs displayed.
My favorite part of the show was getting a chance to interact with the shoppers. It is so exciting to see people engage with our work - to see their smiles, laughter, and interest while looking at our cards and gift products. We love what we do, and it's so gratifying to see that other people love it too!
Some of my favorite things about the show are in this photo:
1) Our newest addition to the Constellation family, a tiny Sigwalt printing press! (Blog feature to come soon.) It was such a wonderful tool to show everyone how the printing process works on a small scale.
2) A collection of vintage photos and ephemera for sale - I've been collecting these kinds of items for years, and it was so fun to hear how each creative person who bought some planned to use it in their own art!
3) Our hand painted star tablecloth! I spent the few weeks before the show doing all kinds of DIY projects, and I love how they came out.
4) Our Vintage Stamp Postcards (soon to be available for sale online), were a big hit! People loved seeing the history in each stamp, and it's exciting to know that lots of our postcards will be going through the mail soon!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see us this weekend! It was a joy to meet you, and we are so excited to continue to offer you letterpress goodies, made by hand with love! All of the new products that we debuted this weekend will be available on our Etsy and Felt & Wire shops soon. Check back on the blog in the coming weeks as well for features on some of our most favorite new things!
