Thank you!

First, we’d like to say a big thank you to the communities of Thatcher and Safford that came out to the Gila Valley Comic Con! We had such a great time and you guys are awesome! Everyone was very welcoming and friendly! Thanks for hosting such a great event! We’ll see you guys again for the 2nd annual Gila Valley Comic Con.

Now, we’re really excited to be able to continue our participation in First Fridays Las Vegas! We’ve met some of the coolest folks and have a great time doing it. We’ll be there again April 6th, and May 4th!

We’re very excited to set up our shop for the First Annual San Diego Rocket Con, April 28th at the Scottish Rite Event Center! You should totally come out! It’s gonna be a gas!

We also get to set up at the Carlsbad Village Fair on May 6th! We are looking forward to the new event and new folks to meet!

For the fourth year in a row, we’ll be at Phoenix Comic Fest! And that, is always a good time! We’ll be in Artist Alley AA1212

We’ll be bringing new jewelry and boxes to all these events! Be sure to follow us on Instagram to be the first to see new  works in progress! 

We’re also working feverishly on making everything that you see in our pop-up shop at shows available to you here in our online shop. Sign up for our mailing list to get the heads up on new pieces before anyone else!

We are still maintaining a presence on Etsy; although the bulk of our art and jewelry will be here.

And remember, if you see anything you like at one of our shows, but were unable to get it then, and can’t find it in our shop, just email us and we’ll make it available for you!

We look forward to seeing you!

Cheers!

Retro City Fest-recap

WOW! That was a fun show! 

We hit the road on Friday at 4:30 am. Yeah, it’s early but it’s totally worth it. We missed rush hour in Phoenix and that’s always a plus!

We arrived at our hotel, the Best Western Pine Tree in Chino, about 11:30 local time. (Gaining the extra hour was awesome as it allowed for a much needed hour lay down!) I can’t say enough nice things about our hotel. I guess actually it was a motel but that’s splitting hairs. The grounds were really well kept and it was beautiful! Banana plants, birds of paradise and lots of other beautiful greenery! We got to park right out in front of our door, so that was cool. I sometimes get anxious in unfamiliar cites when our gear is still stowed in our vehicle and we can’t park near our room. It has nothing to do with the neighborhood, mind you. It’s just my own personal hang up. Our room had a fridge (MOST helpful as we bring our own groceries so we don’t have to rely on expensive con offerings), the bed was super comfy, and the bathroom had tons of counter space! Pilar was really helpful at check in. She was super cool. I had a nice time chatting with her. Breakfast offerings were good; bagel and eggs…perfect!

Next we headed to the venue for load-in, which other than the wrong turn we took, was a breeze. Let me say first that the LA Fairplex is ENORMOUS! The wrong turn allowed us to see it in it’s entirety. To say we took the scenic route is an understatement. XD

Olivia with Retro City was always super helpful with information.

We set up and went back to the hotel to get rested up for the show.

The first day was good. We met lots of cool people, met some really cool artists and played lots of pinball! We didn’t make too many sales the first day, but had lots of looking and chatting traffic, which in my book is great! I love talking to people in person, so there you go. 

Second day was better sales wise, and REALLY good trading wise! One of my favorite parts of any Con or event is trading with other artists. I scored these lovelies:

 

I would recommend this show totally. It might have not had the attendance of a large show, but it was really well organized, the staff was helpful, security wasn’t a pain (except for that one security woman who gave my friend Ryan @Psychoswami a hard time about his service dog. She worked for the Fairplex and not RetroCityFest.) there were lots of pinball and arcade games set to free play the entire weekend. The attendees seemed to be having a great time, and it showed. 

We’ve got lots of shows coming up! Check it out!
