the start of fan expo was begun first by borrowing a car from a friend on thursday, which did allow me to go to another friend`s thurday game night, then afterwards i load up the stuff for the show, and get a bit of sleep.
in the morning around 8a.m. i head of to the convention center, pick up my friend aleria, and get onsite around 10a.m., load all the stuff out of car to my artist alley table, then drive the car offsite to a friend`s place, then skytrain back, cause overall it`s cheaper than downtown car parking.
back at the table, we set it up, and are ready in time for the doors with the public to open.
sales are slow-ish, but i do get some stuff done, finished the new design with a round magnet, make a few new design earrings, and poke away at a design i`ve been playing around with for over a year, the show comes to an end for the day.
day two is a bit busier, but being the main day, one would hope so, but not quite the sales we were hoping for, but i did finally crack the last details of the new necklace design, and end up making all four copies of this design, which is the third in my vacuum tube series.
day three being sunday, is the last one, and sales are almost enough, to make the show an almost break even event for me, aleria and i go thru all the stuff, to separate enough for her to have on sale at a show this sunday called:
APRIL 27 TIME TRAVELERS`S BAZAAR (great fun, you should go to this)
(i`ll be in alberta at the time, but my friend will have selection of stuff of mine there)
[Where] Britannia Secondary School Cafeteria, 1001 Cotton Drive, Vancouver, FROM 10:30 TILL 5:00P.M.
OH, AND FREE ADMISSION.
after packing up my stuff, we went to unload and return the car to it`s owner, and bringing the end to a so-so weekend.
the only high notes were the contacts i made which may lead me to making props for some special projects in the future.
AND NOW, i`m getting ready to go to alberta for two weeks, for two shows, first up is:
APRIL 24-27 CALGARY COMIC & ENTERTAINMENT EXPO (fun times in calgary alberta)
which i need to be in calgary and setting up by sometime wednesday afternoon, which with leaving port coquitlam at around 10 a.m. tuesday, should make for some interesting time traveling.
to be cont...
