Yay! I got accepted! The folks at the No Coast Craft-o-Rama like me! They really like me!

I got an email yesterday afternoon from the folks at No Coast Craft-o-Rama. They were letting me know that I got accepted to this year's show out of over 300 applicants. Can you say "Yippity Skippity!"?? Well, that's what I was saying yesterday when I found out the news! The No Coast Craft-o-Rama is a large arts and crafts fair in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is what I would consider a more trendy, modern festival for up and coming artists and crafters. I had applied last year, but I was rejected. This year, I debated on whether or not to put myself through another rejection by applying, but I decided to go ahead and send in my info to see what happened. And, I'm so glad that I did because this year, they liked me. Yay! They really liked me (er, or my felted stuff anyway)!

The No Coast Craft-o-Rama is a very large two day event with over 10,000 shoppers in attendance last year. It features a wide variety of handmade arts and crafts. This year, the grand event is being held on Friday, December 5, from 3 PM to 8PM and Saturday, December 6, from 9 AM to 5 PM, at the Midtown Global Market on Lake Street in Minneapolis. I know that Minneapolis is a long, long way from Kansas City, but I've never been to the city, and my husband and I are super excited about going. I'm also super excited about being a vendor at such a large event. It makes me feel like a crafting rock star. Well, at least that's the way it makes me feel (however ridiculous that might seem to others - please let me have my moment).

So, if you are close to Minneapolis, mark the date and time on your calendar! Come by, say "hello" and browse for yourself and some holiday gifts.

And, a big Whoohoo! Yippity! Skippity! and Yay!
(There now. I think it is out of my system . . . at least for today.)

  6. Congrats! That sounds like an amazing show. I was equally excited to get into Strange Folk in O'Fallon, IL. I don't think it was nearly as competitive but I do now how you feel.
