Making Connections

Yesterday, we three went to Sassafrass in Castle Rock to see if the store might be a good venue to sell our books in. What a FABULOUS store! So many treasures to discover!

While browsing around, we met a lady who rents space there to sell her wares. Her name is Marcia & she was a plethora of knowledge & advice! She gave us a few hints on selling in a co-op, as well as some other venues to check out. She was even so generous as to extend an offer to take some of our work to some of the local craft shows she has already signed on for! So, we are busy trying to create a few little extras along the themes she mentioned for her to place in her booth. We look forward to working with her soon!

As we were paying for our treasures, we were lucky enough to meet the owner, Amy & set up an appointment to bring our books in for her to look at & see if she thinks her clientele would be interested in our little books! Wish us luck!

Afterward, we hit The Barn! If you have never been to The Barn in Castle Rock, then you are truely missing out!!! It's like going to a quaint little street market in a giant red barn! There are antiques, new & vintage jewelry, artwork, local food stuff & many clever handmade items for sale all under one roof! We spent 2 hours wandering around & probably could have spent more if we'd had the time! We also spoke with a vendor there, Beth Moore of Chic Junque who also was very knowledgeable about these venues & told us how The Barn operates. We hope that when a little space opens up, we might have enough capital to take advantage of this fabulous spot as well!

So, maybe we are finally on our way! We spent the better part of the day working on our business card image...hope you like it! I am hoping to re-do it again when the weather changes & we find some cute knit hats & scarves & a fun place to do them again & have our wonderful friend Rachel take the photo so I don't have to do the timer thing!!!

See you soon!
