Maker Faire

Maker Faire 001
Originally uploaded by mycatisfat
Hello everyone, long time no see. We're back from Maker Faire Austin and we had a blast. There was tons to see and do. Maybe next year we'll get out away from the booth more and participate in some of the activities.  You can see my photos of the event here in my flickr pool.

We're listing a lot of new items in the Nerdbomber Etsy shop. Most of what we're listing currently are Book purses and cards. We hope to list more cell phone charms and small zipper pouches, too.

Our next show is the Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash on November 22. This is at the Sons of Herman Hall from 3-10 pm. Buying handmade for the hollidays is the cool thing to do. You want to be cool, don't you?

400 Sales?

We had a small spurt of sales this weekend, making 399 total sales.  Does anyone want to push us up to 400 sales?  If someone reads this blog, makes a purchase and puts,"Nerds Rule!" in the message to sellers, I'll send you a special "400th Sale Spectacular Surprise."  

Ok, so the rules again are:
1. Read this blog. (check!)
2. Purchase the 400th item from our Nerdbomber Etsy store.
3. Write "Nerds Rule!" in the message to sellers.
4. Win!

Ok, so it's not really a clear picture, more of a tease. Lisa ordered our vinyl banner and for some reason this makes me feel like we're official. We've got signage! This banner will be gracing our booth at the Bazaar Bizarre in the Austin Maker's Faire. The event is going to be tons of fun, anyone in and around Austin should go.

I've been very busy keeping up with school, so it's been hard to post updates on the blog. I know, it's been a month! If I had updated, it would have been, "Read a bunch of stuff for school. Didn't sew a darn thing."

This weekend I did carve out time to finish up some last minute items (apathy bird pouches and book clutches). They should be done on the weekend then I can get back to reading for school before NEXT weekend.

People who know me know that I'm a worrier. I've been pretty nervous about the BB. We've done shows before, but this will be by far the biggest. Are we bringing enough product? Enough business cards? Are our prices reasonable? What if the weekend is a bust?

The only thing I can really do is my best and learn from this experience. Thankfully, Lisa doesn't get worked up like I do. She'll keep me grounded. We're a wonderful nerdy team. See you at the Bazaar Bizarre!
