ANNECHOVIE AT ORLANDO COUNTRY CLUB

Orlando Country Club - founded in 1911
Last week, I participated in the Orlando Country Club's FaLaLa Event, a long standing annual tradition that includes a luncheon and holiday sale to kick off the season. It was fun to "keep shop" and get out and meet some customers face to face. There was a great turnout, despite the dismal economy.

One side of my table

One of my newest quote prints, available on my Etsy site, with or without frame.

Some new holiday enclosure cards, also available now on my Etsy site.

Items available included original art, note cards, scalloped note cards, holiday cards, prints and mugs featuring my work.

Me - keeping shop!
It was wonderful to meet some of my readers in person and get to chat a bit! Thanks to all of you who stopped by my table and introduced yourself and showed your support. It was great to meet you! I even connected with another very friendly blogger, Betsy, better know as "Miss Monogram". You can check out her blog here. There were many vendors there with lovely things. My only regret was that I didn't get the chance to shop or meet more of you! Special thanks to Ann Jones, who chaired the event and invited me. The weather was a bit chilly for Florida and it felt pretty festive. I can't believe the Holidays are almost upon us!

A couple of originals, that I am featuring more of on my Etsy site, as well as my new holiday cards.

I wish I had known about this, I would have sent my cousin to shop for me (she lives in Orlando, I live in Essex,CT) I adore your work. It combines the two greatest things in the world....art and stationary!!!!! ;-)

what a great event! your work is so detail oriented, right down to to the transparent pretty pink bows ~

Julia~ Thank you! Yes, too bad! I would have advertised it on my blog, but it was a members-only and their guests deal, but maybe your cousin belongs there? Anyway, I will let you know if I get back there to Orlando!

Taste Memory~ Thanks as always for your kind comments!

Ooooh, look at that table full of goodies. I would have been lingering all day. Good thing I'm far, far away :)

I'm loving your restocked etsy shoppe, Anne!

Hugs,

fun to see your show set-up - my first show was dismal - i think things will improve a little in the next few weeks - a bright little window for retail just before the holidays then....slow, slow, slow...

Just the sort of thing to boost the economy and anyone's day who was lucky enough to shop and meet you. Your table is a bounty of beautiful things!
Hope it was a super success for you!

Hi Marnie and Patricia~
I know both of you are veterans of the same type of shows and your displays are probably killer! It was fun to have a little shop for a day and now that I look at the table, I see all sorts of things I SHOULD have done! Oh well, maybe next time. I hope you are both well - thanks as always for your kind words and input - great to have you visit!
