Oh boy, today's the day









I was really torn over whether or not to apply for the Renegade Holiday show in San Francisco in December. But I succumbed at the last minute and applied. Here were the pros and cons:

Pros
  • First holiday Renegade in San Francisco! Sure to be well attended with a lot of media attention.
  • Renegade is such a fantastic show anyway, 'twould be an incredible opportunity and honor to participate as a vendor
  • I don't have time, literally, to do shows, but would make the time (somehow ...) for Renegade
  • And how many big name venues are here during scarf season (hint, not that many)?
Cons
  • See #3 above - no time!
  • In addition to the massive work involved in building up inventory specifically for the show, there's also figuring out set up and other logistics
  • Both of which take time away from my regular business with holiday traffic
The pros definitely outweigh the cons for me.

Today's the day applicants find out if they've been accepted. I haven't worried very much about it, not knowing if I'm in or out. I'll breathe a sigh of relief either way!

10/16 2PM - update! I've been accepted!!!
