Post Pilsen Market Recap





Well the sale was really great. I only sold a few things but I got a couple of custom orders, which is fantastic. It was a tight squeeze for those seven hours, but it was a lot of fun. It was a really good experience because there were a lot of people from all stages of their business careers (There were 15-20 vendors there!). It gave me a lot of display ideas and it made me realize what I would need if the space did not provide anything. I still have a ton of my headbands and clips, so I will be saving them for the Spring Art Sale in April!

Here are some more pictures.

Oh and the most exciting part of the day was I got into the Chicago RedEye! It was a complete surprise, but there was a picture of me and my green leaf printed piggota hat in the metro mix section!






One of my hats is also on display at the drake hotel! If you get a chance, swing by and take a look. It's in the back by the Chanel Boutique.

Gallery Show

So, I'm going to be in a gallery show in April, from the 20th-27th, and my teacher Eia wanted us to come up with some names for the show. It's going to be all hats, and I love hat puns (as you can see from the title) - but I am a bit unsure about what to suggest.

Any ideas?

I am also adding things to my blog such as the pages under my banner. Take a look! If you want your website to be shared in my links please email me with a sentence about your website and the URL.

PS: Hatlife Newsletter I just found this!
