In the Shop: Love Catcher Rainbow

In the Shop: Love Catcher Rainbow ~ From Bubblegum Sass ~ Available through Etsy.com ~Lace dreamcatchers for nursery decor

With my two spring markets done & hubby fully absorbed in work for the growing season, Sam & I have been thrown into a new schedule, new routines, and new chaos. It will all change again in a couple of weeks, when he finishes preschool. The family & work life balance is a constant struggle. You “win” at it some days, and other days, not so much.

Around Town: Craft Show Display

Craft Show Display Ideas ~ By Bubblegum Sass

This spring, I had the immense pleasure of being a vendor at two markets around Alberta! I don’t get to do too many markets & craft shows these days, so doing TWO (on back-to-back weekends) was a pretty big deal for me! There were lots of reasons to be excited, including having actual booths at both markets instead of a single table, and focusing primarily on selling my Love Catcher & Dreamcatcher designs. Today I’m sharing how I tackled my display at the shows.

Yes, truly ecstatic to be included in this upcoming market! FINALLY! It’s been on the list of shows I’ve wanted to attend for quite a while, but could just never squeeze into the schedule. Well, to heck with that this year. I’m diving in and so very pleased that Vixens of Vintage has welcomed me!

Most Popular 2015 ~ Top selling Bubblegum Sass products

Got this idea from a fellow Etsy Alberta teammate and thought it would be fun to look back on the most popular Bubblegum Sass items sold in 2015. Of course, my most popular item by far, were the Love Catchers. So I put together the top three selling colour combos, along with the most popular Love Catcher designs. Here are the results:

Etsy Calgary: Made In Canada

Etsy Calgary: Made In Canada Pop-Up Market 2015

Only ONE more sleep until the big market!! I’ve been so busy making, making, making for it, that I’ve barely had time to pop on here. If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you might be getting sick of hearing & seeing all the stuff I’ve made for the show. I’ll be bringing along close to 100 small Love Catchers, 20 large Love Catchers, along with a selection of upcycled & shabby chic accessories.

There’s been a crazy amount of response to the show. We’re expecting anywhere from 5,000-10,000 folks in a single day!! You’re going to be running us off our feet! For the first 125 lucky folks through the door, there are some amazing swag bags with contributions from the vendors & sponsors (including copies of Uppercase Magazine). I provided 50 adorable button magnets.

The first 10 customers who make a purchase at my table, will receive a 10% coupon for future purchases! So come down to the show early. Also, check out the directions for taking public transit, since parking might be an issue with that many people. I’m lucky enough to have my sis-in-law waking before the sun to pick me up & drive me down to the show.

If you missed the news segment on CTV this morning discussing the show, you can catch it here. Such a great variety of vendors featured, and you might spot a Love Catcher by little ‘ol me!

Can’t wait to share some photos from the show with you! Hope it’s a huge success for all the vendors!
