Friday was super rainy, but we still had a line outside at the beginning and it ended up breaking previous Etsy RAIN event attendance records. I didn't take many pictures during the event because I was too busy using my phone to process credit cards for kokoleo purchases. This was my first time using my Intuit GoPayment App and I love it. Who wouldn't love money instantly deposited into your bank account? I made all my money back and then some on the first day and made even more today. The only thing I like better is knowing a whole bunch of kokoleos are going to be wrapped and given as gifts this Christmas.
Speaking of gifts, I got a few for my family too. Sage is going to love this piece of wall art from pixelparty:
And from Kate Endle, I bought McKenna this calendar and Casper Babypants CD.
I also did some great trades, like a coffee mug pin cushion for this ceramic snowflake ornament (though I can't remember her business' name).
And I traded a necktie headband for a fabulous assortment of treats from Sweet Coconut Bakery. I tried to save them for my family, but ended up eating most of them at the show.
I trade some stuffed ducks I made (for a Renton River Days window display) for this necklace by Cyncity and some magnets I'm going to put in my husband's stocking:
And from Scary White Girl Designs, I traded a Mickey Mouse sundress for this flower barrette and some arm warmers.
It's nice to be home with a lighter kokoleo load, money in my pocket, and a bunch of new handmade things. My best sellers of the show were my Seattle baby tees I whipped together just last week.
Driving home tonight after a fun show, I appreciate this skyline even more.
