Happy Weekend!

This week we got our first snowfall of the season!  They say it is going to be a severe winter – get out the boots and hats and let the fun begin!

We spent much of this week recovering from our weekend in Chicago at the Renegade Holiday Sale.  It was a busy couple of days that went by like a flash!  This was our third year participating in this show, and it is one of my favorites, hands down.  I think it is a combination of the hustle and bustle of the city, the big crowd of shoppers full of holiday spirit, and the close (and cozy!) quarters which forces us to get to know our neighbors real well!  For the second year in a row we were placed right next to Nicole from Riproost, which was a fun surprise.   She makes the most awesome boxes from reclaimed wood and found materials.  I think they are pretty great, and so did everyone else.  They were flying off the table!

Our new display set up worked great!  For not having a very large booth area we were able to display everything so that our shoppers could see it all up close and personal.

It was non-stop busy the whole time.  As always, we loved chatting with everyone who stopped by the booth.  If you came by to see us, thanks!

While we were in the big city we made sure to take a little time to stop by Whole Foods.  It’s a great store, we don’t have them where we live, but the main reason we went was to see our products on the shelf!  Last year at the Renegade Holiday show we were approached by someone from the Whole Foods Corporation who asked if we were interested in putting some of our products in their stores.  Fast forward a whole year later, and there they are!  I’ll be honest, it was a thrill for us to see them there!

On the drive home from Chicago we had nice long session of talking shop, scheming, dreaming, and planning for the next couple of months.  We’ve got lots of work to do!

Renegade Holiday Sale

It’s that time of year again!  Time for the Chicago Renegade Holiday Sale!  THIS WEEKEND!

We’re packing up and driving north for one of our favorite weekends of the year.  The guys and gals at Renegade put on such a great event, and we love being a part of it!  Last year was a big success, and we’re hoping for nothing less this time around!  Come see us!

We have several new products that are making their debut!  Our recipe binder would make a great gift for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen.  And, our Home Sweet Home print would look fabulous on anyone’s wall.

Hot off the press this week is our bigger, more colorful, and simply more awesome version of our popular Lets Go Ride Bikes print.  And don’t forget to pick up a little holiday card to send to someone special!

We’ve had some help in the wood shop over the last couple of weeks building a brand spanking new display for our letterpress goods.  We’re ready, and we can’t wait to see you!  If you are anywhere near Chicago this weekend come to the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse.  I really can’t think of a better place to shop for the holidays!
