So after I blogged on Friday I gathered everything and started loading up my car.
We got to Tulsa around 4pm and started setting up. It took us until 5:30, which I was surprised by. The event started at 7pm and I still had to get ready and have dinner. After set up we went to our friends Cristi and Issac's house of Felix and Jayne to get ready and then headed to dinner around 6 or so. We didn't get our food until 6:40 so I'm sure you can imagine our anxiety. We got to the event at 7:00pm. We ran inside from the parking lot and had to run past the line of people waiting to get in. Nice. I didn't price my items beforehand so I was rushing to price everything. One of the first people to come by my booth was a woman and her grandchild. The little girl picked up an owl buddy and was excited about it. Her grandma replied, "If you had the patience, we can go home and figure that out". I just stared at her. That day finally came. I've heard stories from crafters of people saying "I can make that" around their booths. I know it wasn't a personal attack but it hurt my feelings. So I started my Friday night flustered. Within 30 minutes I was feeling better and enjoying the night. I'm sad to say I didn't get any pictures of Friday at Indie Emporium!!
Riley had to go home Friday after the event since he had to go to Lawrence, Kansas the next day. So taking his spot was my sister, Cristina!
We had lunch and headed to the venue early because I didn't feel like rushing again.
I decided now was the best time to take pictures of the booth!!
There's Cristina conducting business.
Saturday was such a fun day! Cristina was an amazing helper and kept me laughing.
We came across one punk posy's booth and she had these rockin' mustaches on a stick! We became obsessed!
Cristina got into it
Claudia from Claudia's Burning Ink got into it!
The owl snuggly got into it!
Even the ghost!
Tini even got double into it!
It was great to see everyone again and meet new friends!

I have two more shows this year in Oklahoma. One in November and one in December! I'll let you know more about it later.
All in all it was a great weekend!
Thank you to those that were able to come to Indie Emporium!
