This past weekend I got to be a vendor at my all time favorite craft show- the Unglued Craft Fest right here in Fargo, ND. It was their 5th Annual fest and the third time that AENDEE had a booth at the fair.
In addition to putting on an amazing craft fest every February Unglued is a full time brick & mortar boutique in downtown Fargo. Their store is an adorable and eclectic shopping experience and their craft fest is like bringing the shop to life on 3 floors of a beautiful art museum with 50+ crafters selling their wares in person. Check out this video from one of their recent fests to get an idea of just how awesome it is.
Unglued was my VERY FIRST craft fest back in February 2013. I had only been making neckties for a few months at that time and never guessed when I had started that I’d be selling my goods from a booth at this awesome event for the next three years and eventually from my very own storefront- that fest really was the start of it all.
Obviously things have changed since way back then. 1: I look (and feel) a lot older 2: My craftsmanship & branding has improved a million fold 3: My product line has expanded 4: My booth display is now epic thanks to the help of ICSS Supply Co. 5: I’ve got a few more years of experience & several different craft fests under my belt.
Some things that have not changed, 1: Mama bear is still the best booth buddy ever. 2: Mom and I still have a lot of room for improvement in the "taking pictures" department. 3. I still have a lot to learn. 5. I still love what I do
In addition to the Unglued Fest AENDEE has made an appearance at Crafty Supermarket in Cincinatti, Renegade Chicago, Alley Fair in Fargo and a few other small fests & pop ups. With a brand new booth display and a bunch of new and improved products- this year is all about taking AENDEE on the road.
I’ve got an amazing up cycled / eco friendly fest coming up in March in St. Louis MO called Green With Indie and am booked for a few more shows in the spring! Stay tuned to the blog to see where I'll be headed and I promise next time I'll take (at least a few) more photos of all the fun!
