Back from Montreal's Women Show

Another great time at another Exhibit...
Two weekends ago was the Montreal Women's Show where I sold my armbags again. Setting-up the booth, I had to re-organize by kiosk display and be creative since it was larger than expected (pics to come). It worked out fine and women liked having the full collection in front of them.

Again, this was a great experience as I had a chance to get customers feedback which was very positive (I'm sure having a sex toys display and girls dressed with funky wigs next to my booth probably helped!!). It is funny to notice that women in Montreal and Toronto like different armbags styles. Most women in Mtl liked the Midnight Garden one when TO was going for the Midnight Shadow one. Interesting to see the trends...

As for my day-to-day activities, I'm mostly focused on sales and am trying to lower my production costs which has always been the challenge. The fashion industry (on the production side) is very slow and difficult now and alot of suppliers closed their doors a few years ago because of a lack of work and you have to really dig to find someone that can help you. It's like a treasure hunt!

I'm currently looking for other Shows and Exhibit to attend so if you know any in your area, please let me know.

Cheers for now
