The Made in NH Expo 2017 on Saturday was a great way to beat the raw weather and have a great time doing it! As usual, the variety of items and wonderful vendors from around the state was outstanding. Between the items, the entertainment, the food and libations, there really was something for everyone.
As you can see, the attendance was incredible. Great for all the vendors to display and sell their products, clearly shown here on the empty shelves of Shannon's Better Than Average jams, jellies and sauces. Their delivery of restocking came shortly after the picture. How great is that!
My neighbor vendor, Shannon, from Better Than Average and her empty, but soon to be restocked shelves. It's a good thing....right?
Thank you Kerry for being so accommodating both days.
I was lucky for the 2nd year to be able to spread out to a larger space. Thank you to the management at Events NH and to Kerry, the author of the Thomas Holland series of delightful books (as you can see his sign next to mine), he moved to aisle 300 and allowed me to expand. I'm very grateful.
Lou, from the Hug Patrol seen in the background behind him, started off my day with a good luck. Doesn't he look soooo interested in my items...good acting! And they really do give warm hugs, it's very comforting.
Neighbor vendors make the long hours during the day so much more enjoyable. As well as the wonderful people from the NH Ambassadors that allow breaks for the vendors working solo in the booths.
Helen is one of the many wonderful ambassadors helping us single vendors out. Thanks Helen!
Amy, from Gunther's Goodies, is a great neighbor vendor with a lot of helpful hints.
Across the aisle Becca, from Adorned by Becca, is back at the Made in NH Expo after a long hiatus. I'm sure they're glad she came back.
And then there are the GREAT customers!
I love photographing couples and Dawn and Jeff let me take their pic. Dawn bought this tote bag mostly for the dragonflies. Thanks Dawn!
Thanks to Cheryl, who bought one of my show special bags.
Also thanks to Killian (what a great Irish name!) who purchased this curly maple with abalam shamrock, of course, and thanks to his mom.
Cristin came to visit me at my booth and I goofed up on posting her picture in my holiday blogs last Christmas, so Thanks Cristin for letting me take your pic and post now.
Thank you Donna for reluctantly letting me take your picture. I appreciate it and I think you look wonderful!
As usual I'm pressed for time, but I'll be blogging about today, Sunday's, day at the Expo and having so much fun just like the Wolfman!
The Wolfman from Clark's Trading Post was here again this year. Looks menacing!
