Last weekend was the big Palos Verdes Music and Street Fair, and it was quite the adventure!!! From tap dancing performances and pie eating competitions, to live music and a petting zoo. My favorite thing was the fact that this event was dog friendly, so everyone and their brother brought their pooches. I saw gigantic great danes, Bernese mountain dogs, and every other kind you can imagine walking by my booth. Sweet!

Here are a few photos of the weekend, just to document. It was the first show using the NEW canopy (that rocked). Fun was had by all :)

Had a great time this weekend at the Uptown Village Market in Long Beach! Met really nice people and listened to the cutest jazz band ever :) chocolate covered strawberries and wine tastings in the back room topped it all off. A special thanks to my niece, Jesse, who rallied and ventured over to help man our booth!

EZ UP Canopy tent for street fairs!

OK, so my father and I researched out every kind of canopy tent available for vendors at street fairs and outside selling venues, and came up with the EZ UP canopy, which rocks.
We even went down to the factory outlet in Norwalk, where "Jim," the EZ UP expert gave us the 101 on how to set up and take down the canopy, as well as what not to do. Go ahead, ask me what to do in case of a wind storm, because I totally know now!!! Anyway, the first usage will be the Palos Verdes Music and Street Fair on June 9th and 10th, so we will see how it fares :) Best thing ever: this little number sets up in about 8 minutes flat! Yay!! Here it is in the sun stretching out for a few days, with 40 lb weight bags around the legs, which "Jim" recommended :)

We survived Unique LA!!! :)

This weekend was completely consumed with the super fun Unique LA!!! I was sooooo fortunate to have  both parents in town to help me not only man the booth,  but prep the day and night before, and schlep all my props and merchandise up 13 flights to the penthouse of the California Mart. The other vendors were really nice, as well as lots of people milling about - buying everything from clothes, to cool jewelry, to home decor. My booth mate and super sweet friend, Maria (from mandonia.com and mandoniakids.com) sold many fabulous purses, and a good time was had by all. Here are some quick pics from the show.....
 Next up: The Palos Verdes Street Fair and Music Festival in early June!!

Here are a few fun pics of my adventure at the St. George's Dragon Faire last weekend. It was a fundraiser for my friend Maria's (from m.andonia.com) children's preschool in La Canada. Fun was had by all, and it was a good practice run for Unique LA, which I should be prepping for right now instead of blogging!!!! My good friend, Kimiko was there selling her one of a kind gorgeous pillows (kimikodesign.com), as well as artist Barbara Kosoff (barbarakosoff.com), who had very clever artwork to share :)
