Big step for me - my first-ever trade show! it was in New York (NY NOW), it was exhilarating, and it was huge - over 5,000 exhibitors and 23,000 buyers. Lots of exciting orders from art museums. A very gratifying experience.

I'll be back in Victoria this year to do the Out of Hand Artisan Fair again. It was such a positive experience last year, I'm looking forward to doing it again. They have a really good mix of exhibitors, many of whom are exclusive to Vancouver Island.

Looking forward to being at the Wearable Art Show in Oakville. The show will feature 35 Canadian designers showcasing their latest work in an intimate setting, as well as daily fashion shows.

Here I am on a recent trip to New York at Tender Buttons on East 62nd Street - pursuing the eternal quest for great vintage buttons.

One of my Canister Purses was in attendance at the opening reception of an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in Vienna on the rise of that city's department stores in the nineteenth century. Pictured here is the owner of the purse, Roz McNulty, with her friend Lynn Katey, both from Vancouver. Roz is the Vice-President of the Society for the Museum of Original Costume and is looking very elegant in a lovely vintage gown. Both the President and Vice-President of Austria were at the opening reception as well. I'm sure they saw my purse - and must have admired it quietly to themselves.
