As many of you know, I’ve been setting up shop every Sunday at the Fremont Sunday Market. This is my first summer vending there and in addition it it I’m getting ready for two other events. The first is the the West Seattle Summerfest July 8, 9, and 10 and the Seattle Gift Show August 13-16.
Summerfest is a BIG neighborhood extravaganza with lots of vendors, music, and good people watching! The festival is in my neighborhood and that made me jump at the chance to be a part of it. I’ll be in the Art Dive area put on by Twighlight Artist Collective. The Art Dive Tents will feature local art and artisans and will be located north of Oregon Street on California Avenue. Summerfest will be my first multi-day festival and to help me out, my mom will be flying in to help. What a sweetheart!
In August I’ll be participating in my first trade at the Seattle Gift Show. I’ve been interested in growing my wholesale business beyond the Seattle area and think this show will put Orange Twist in front of the eyeballs of many Northwest buyers. I’ve been busy researching booth design, locating fixtures, and am just learned that my rep will be available to help out. Things are starting to fall into place!
I hope to meet some of my awesome Seattle clients at Summerfest, so if you attend I hope you’ll stop by and introduce yourself! I’ll be posting updates at and about the events at the Orange Twist Facebook page, so if you’re looking for up to the minute info check it out.
