You can't see the entire booth because I cropped the image, but we added more festive decorations this year. One thing we plan to do for future featuring of our wares is streamline the display stands. We scatter jewelry on all sorts of platters, bowls, tiles, boxes, etc., and while it looks cute overall, we wondered this time if some of our pieces got lost in the mosaic of colors and shapes. We have a tendency to rearrange constantly; Lisa would probably disavow that for herself because I seem to recall her constant admonitions to me concerning that activity...("Did you change it again?!? Now I have to take more pictures!!")
Positives: We love going to any show and having the exposure. We heard "James Avery" again. We didn't hear "Sundance", which popped up at Artoberfest, but it wasn't that kind of crowd. I am not crazy for the James Avery lines, personally, and I don't know why people make that relationship to us. In fact, I just looked at that website and I still don't know why, but we do take it as a compliment. We also heard again "the best jewelry at the show"--that, of course, is a completely subjective statement, but we certainly agree and understand! It's natural that some people will connect with our jewelry while others will not. That's the way it goes! It makes us feel like we have a style that means something to others as well as us.
