Home from the ACC Baltimore Craft Show

Whew! A whirlwind cross country trip from Portland, Oregon to Baltimore, Maryland. It’s always an energizing, fun and inspiring week.
I bring all my clothes, set up my booth, carefully hang everything in place, then wait for the doors to open and my friends and customers to stop by.
It’s like an open house for 3 solid days. A big party!
In the morning before we opened, when it was quiet, a picture over my scarves and into my booth.
And the weather! A wonderfully pleasant but very unusual 75 degrees.
On one night, all these people were out enjoying the warm evening in a sidewalk cafe.
Yes. Eating outside. In Baltimore. In February. In shirtsleeves.
Remember this picture from 2 years ago? The same time, February, the same place, outside the Convention Center, there was a blizzard! Snow a foot deep.
Baltimore, you keep us guessing.
Nina and Elisabeth were bundled up and trying to start warm.
On the last day of this year’s trip, it had cooled back down to 50 degrees and no one was interested in sitting outside.
Empty tables and chairs overlooking the inner harbor.
After the show was over and during tear down, the cutest of dogs, Kuma, stopped by to say hi.
I’m a sucker for a cute dog. Kuma is most definitely that!
Then home! Back to Portland.
Looking out my window at the gorgeous sky.
It was a fantastic show!
Thank You American Craft Council for putting together another one!
I had a wonderful time!

    Glad it went so well. Did you sell the vintage meisen kimono silk trench coat? It was gorgeous!

      Thank You Judith!
      I did sell several of my Meisen Trench coats. The 2 from my February 12th blog post, the silver grey and the black with red and white polka dots, went to new homes.

    Danke für diesen so wunderbar formulierten und gleichzeitig jedes schlechte Gewissen-zerstörenden Text!
