Stationery Show

Ahhh, the National Stationery Show.
Good times in Booth 1655.
It's always great to catch up with everyone and meet a bunch of new people.   And it really helps to make the time fly when you've got your sister to crack jokes with and friends galore who all stop by.

What really made the show great was getting into some cool new shops:  Pulp in DC and MA, Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn, Laywines in Toronto, and Watson Kennedy in Seattle, just to name a few.

And then the introduction of 8mm buttons.  Hello!  Kaari sent out her button making machine and we went button mad.  Happily so.  Everyone that stopped in the booth either made a button, had a button made especially for them, or chose from the varied buttons we'd made to walk out with, being buttoned by 8mm.

And the show also made me think it might be time to get back into business on Etsy.  Many fantabulous, non-wholesale buyers were interested in the work... and I'm about to have the time to do it all, so I may as well!
 here we go!

Buttons, buttons, buttons... I love buttons. What a good addition. Sorry I missed the show. It looked so rich and fun.

And your big smile and cute hair... you look happy.
