my Philadelphia adventure

My drive down to Philadelphia for the Buyers Market looked like this:


more snow

I95 with only one other car in view

welcome to blizzardy Pennsylvania

you’re really in trouble now

just 3 more blocks to the hotel. Phew.

A few buyers and artists weren’t able to make it at all, or had to scramble to create displays out of office supplies when their shipments got stuck on the other side of the country. I was very lucky to have everything with me.

We had more snow on the way home, but M drove (thank you!) and we made good time.

I’m glad to be back in the studio filling orders, with the help of my trusty assistants.

    so glad your adventure was a safe one. i hope it was also successful!

    the last year i went to that market, i think in 02, i almost didn’t get out of philadelphia because of a blizzard. we sat on the runway for 5 hrs waiting to leave.
    we were the last plane that left the airport for several days i believe.

    the cat pictures really really make me want a cat. especially that last one!

    Your booth looked beautiful. Get a load of that cat’s ginormous paw with opposable thumb!

    And so happy to hear that you are “filling orders”!!

    Holy! Crazy weather. I’m glad you made it there and back safe! Your set-up looks great in the photo. And those kitties are adorable:)

    Have you thought about marketing your jewelry in photos with the cats? The middle photo showing the necklace in progress in a home studio setting is so gorgeous and compelling. It’s a story.

    I don’t know if the idea would strike your fancy or interest your clients, but what a unique, memorable and potentially elegant way to tell your story, market to a niche and set yourself apart. Instead of the crazy cat lady, you might be the artsy cat lady. …Thinking out loud.
