I look at this past year with so much pride and joy with all the milestones and accomplishments that have gone on within my business. Christmas is in the review mirror. 2023 is just around the corner.
First off, this blog was born this year! How exciting! I loved sharing my craft adventures from my pink tent blowing over on Memorial Day weekend to Martha Stewart stopping by booth this summer.
I expanded into sharing review of products I use such as Walrus Oil. I shared recipes like my family apple butter recipe. I visited local spots in my region such as Fogtown Brewery for their Pizza and Oktoberfest 2022. When I took a weekend off from craft fairs, I reviewed Bar Harbor Cellars.
I sold in person at events held by Island Arts Association on Mount Desert Island in Maine near Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. I celebrated my anniversary of going to craft fairs at Flamingo Festival. In October I branched out to the Downtown Bangor for their ArtWalk.
I was in the Bangor Daily News end of October right before the big November Holiday Craft Fairs at The Bangor Mall. My last in person event of the year was at Poppy and Polka Dot Boutique right in the Heart of Downtown Ellsworth. on Main St.
In some blogs I featured food from other local businesses such as Honey and Lace Bakery and Downtown Charcuterie. A few times I featured Luxury Picnics Acadia using by boards. I loved sharing customer pictures of my Ocean Resin key holders and customer food set ups like the breakfast charcuterie displays.
This past year, I was in stores throughout the region including Acadia SUP in Downtown Bar Harbor, Three Pennies & a Dime in Ellsworth, The Happier Choice Medical Dispensary in Trenton and Steamy Buddha in Ellsworth. Keep an eye out in Bangor as I hope to list a new partnership or two for next Spring.
This year thanks to the online exposure of those branding iron reels, I’m now offering discount code, “vixenhollow” to save 15% on a branding iron from BrandNew Industries.
Check out my Events page to stay up to date on upcoming New England Wedding Association Bridal Expos throughout Maine in January and February along with my summer in person events. I will be updating that events page regularly.
