Marianne and I finished up our last tradeshow of the season last week. The New York International Gift Fair is by far the largest tradeshow we attend: it fills the entire Javit Center in NYC. We had an absolutely phenomenal show and it was great to touch base with so many of the stores that sell Solmate Socks.
One of my favorite parts of these shows is seeing what all the other artists do. This time I found (and ordered) some really fun and funky metal sculptures for my garden. Fred Conlon at Sugar Post makes these hilarious Gnome-Bearers… little metal helpers to get rid of those pesky garden gnomes. You can find big and little versions of these Gnome Bearers available at UncommonGoods (where you can also find our socks). These little guys were probably my favorite new find at the show and I’m super excited to get them home and in the garden.
Next up: Prarie Home Companion taping! This past Saturday a big group of us Sockladies (and gents) went to the PHC taping that Solmate Socks sponsored. It was a blast and I’ve got some pics that I’ll put up in a bit.
