During our trip to Philadelphia, the rest of the crew left watching the shop had their own very successful glass art opening reception on Friday, February 18th, titled ‘While the Cats Away’ (me being the feline here…) It was a very catchy name that drew a lot of people to the shop. I was so… Read More While the Cats Away…
Jannine and I arrived home safely tonight. It’s good to be back! We stayed up late last night, thinking we could sleep-in, but when we woke up to 6″ of snow, we had to get to the airport early in case of delays. We caught an early shuttle without having had breakfast yet. Everything turned… Read More Good to Be Home
21 February: The final day of the show was uneventful for us, but one poor soul had his booth collapse! Most of his glass fell and broke when someone from a surrounding booth pulled on one of their poles holding up their booth and the it had a domino effect. We were all freaked out… Read More Last Day of Show
Yesterday the convention center had another ‘gate crasher’, a Vietnamese ‘buyer’ without a badge- right in front of Wendy Rosen! He got ‘escorted’ out by the staff before he could even get in. We never saw him only heard about the incident from her. Friday was super busy, Saturday moderately busy, but I think I… Read More BMAC, Day 2-3
Yesterday, on our first day, we had an interesting interaction with someone claiming to have a gallery in Scottsdale. They ordered 4 of my biggest pieces, the calcedonia Auroras, without hardly looking at them. Then, they gave me a San Francisco address for delivery even though their name tags said their gallery was in Scottsdale.… Read More BMAC, Day One
Thursday February 17: Today we worked from 11am-4 pm (that’s 9 am Santa Fe time). Tomorrow we will have to get up early 7 am (5 am our time) to finish cleaning the glass pieces. Ugh— Not used to this time change! We spent our time today hanging the show, placing the work, cleaning mirrors,… Read More The Booth is Ready!
Wednesday, February 16: Today was a long day- 11:30 am- 7:30 pm with no lunch break. We got the booth ready to set up glass art for tomorrow. It’s amazing how long it takes to create a hidden storage area, square-up the booth (which takes forever!), put down the floor, put up 32 lights, hang… Read More First Day at the Philadelphia Convention Center
We decided to break up the photos today into 2 segments. This first segment is on Reading Market where we like to eat while working at the convention center. It is right across the street. Here is a little tour of a few of the shops and stands before the lunch hour crush of people!… Read More Reading Market
Well, we finally arrived in Philly at the hotel at 12:15 am last night after being rerouted to St Louis as we mentioned yesterday. The flight was uneventful-just long. We are already tired! About 7 hours flying time. This morning we will get a bite to eat over at Reading Market across the street from… Read More Arrived in Philly-finally!
Jannine and I fly out Tuesday morning bound for Philadelphia. Wednesday and Thursday are spent setting up the booth. The show starts Friday, and ends on Monday. It’s a long haul, but we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Hopefully sales will be up this year! Stay tuned for a behind… Read More Tomorrow We Leave for Philly
