The final push

19 Jul

Preparations and making products for the upcoming Bloomfest has been consuming our apartment and our lives for the past month, and although I’m really really super excited for our first ever physical store/booth, I can’t help but be just as excited for when it’s all over. I’m so worried that I won’t have enough items to fill the 10’x10′ booth and that it’ll look so boring…a lot of the layout and design will have to be done the day of, as we’d like to do some sort of radial string display with the canopy and I’m not sure if that’s possible at all. I really need to make a SketchUp mockup of the tent…

Anyway, here’s where you can find our booth on July 23rd, from 2pm to 10pm:

There we are!

I’ve only been thinking about the booth design with a middle booth in mind and so the news that we have a corner booth has thrown me off. I hear that corner booths are usually the most desirable booth location as you will receive maximum exposure, but I’m a bit anxious about how to present such a space and how to fill it. Whereas a booth in between two others only has one side to face, a corner booth has two that need to be addressed and is not quite as controlled. So, back to the drawing board…

But it’s slowly and surely coming together. Here’s a few camera phone pictures of our works in progress:
