Oh, events – do I love thee. This week, I have had several phone calls with various online shopping sites, all offering interesting platforms for selling and promoting our JUARA wares, but I have to say, one thing that I still hold dear are events. I, myself, am an admitted online shopper – I don’t do well with lines at the cashier and I like to shop at the comfort of my laptop, taking little breaks at work to do some damage on my wallet. Although I do enjoy the solo shopping experience, I really do like events where people shop (not just our JUARA products, though that’s fun,) and mingle. I have a fantastic time just chatting with people who really were having a good time, hearing what people feel about JUARA (when we’re in the events,) or mingling at others’ tables, getting to know the other designers and the people who come to check out the event – such intimate (yet public) events really do put the human aspect back into what can be a guilt-ridden wallet watching evening. With no pressure, but just being yourself with friends, chatting, shopping, meeting new people – it just feels… special. Sometimes we’re so focused on our finances that we forget shopping events are truly enjoyable as a social event, with that benefit of going home with goodies! Enjoy a drink and relax! This month, we have several events, and I’m rather looking forward to them. Two coming up:
