Crafts in Chelsea

The storms cleared...and the craft show went on!
Mom was ready to go - thanks to the help of Due's Mom - Deborah. In true NY fashion - Mom & Deborah made it there with all of our a cab!

We (and by that I mean Mom - but she always refers to our Central Bark endeavour as "we" - I guess I'm always with her even when she leaves me at home!)...WE were ready for the crowds. Sales were moderate but more importantly we got our brand out there and it generated a lot of interest - including 2 wholesalers.

I like that fact that MY picture was used to draw the crowd in...and it worked! Of course - the treats were a BIG hit as well. Seems they were such a success folks wanted to buy them. We even had a salon asking if we could provide them wholesale! Next show - we will continue to do the marketing give-away biscuit, but will also offer bags of treats for sale!

Thanks to everyone for their votes on our packaging. There were a lot of dogs in the crowd - and they all seemed to love my treats. (And I do mean MY treats - I couldn't believe Mom left me at home took ALL the treats with her!)

Thanks to Miley for keeping the Nor'easter in her neighborhood and to Sierra Rose for that Sun Dance. It worked. We had a few gentle showers - but nothing like the downpour predicted.

So now it's on to the Yankee Game (1 down - 3 to go). (And yes - Mom is recovering with an NCIS Marathon - thank you Mark Harmon)

P.S. - Mom brought the leftover treats home - so I let her back in the apartment!

Congrats! Glad the storm held back. I always have to laugh about the Mark Harmon comments because it seems I'm always watching NCIS when I read your blog! LOL. We watch it every day.

PS. Another Yankee win to help keep you out of LAA gear.

Your logo is very cute, and the photo of Abbey was an excellent technique - who could resist?

All this talk of treats is making me hungry! Oh, and Mum says to tell your mum congratulations.

Congratulations! We thought about you and were wishing things would be successful! I can't wait to see your name on the west coast!
