Apologies for the lack of recent posts...it's been a busy fall!
I have been slowly inching toward a more official and robust studio business concept and am starting to have a better idea of what small pea studio may become:) In an effort to speed along some decisions (at least in my mind), I decided to share a table with a friend (who is also a doll-maker) at a local neighborhood Fall Festival this past weekend. Our table was surrounded by a face-painting and kids crafting corner, local small business set-ups, and tables of hand-crafted items including letterpressed cards, knitted baby hats, jewelry made with found antique buttons, and slices of pie!
I had one mini-quilt and three pillows, along with some temporary business cards and an email sign-up list. A start, right?
Yes, but definitely not enough inventory to actually sell anything. Despite the samples-only display, I had a great time talking to those who stopped by the table, friends and strangers alike. It felt good to be part of the community in that way, and I look forward to this small pea studio sprouting and growing where it may.
As I begin to make some of the temporary studio ideas more permanent, you may see some changes around here. Any feedback is welcome and encouraged:)
