Last Thursday I traveled to Cleveland, OH with two of my employees, Emily and Lexy for a wholesale gift show, Niche Fair. I saved this show for The Artists Market of Mackinac Island. I knew I would find unique makers at this particular show. I was right, Niche Fair was an awesome experience! I am so glad I made the long trip. 
With only 75 vendors, it was easy to walk through, no lines and you felt at home. The vendors were personable and it was great to see some of my current makers in person and new products for the new year. 
Niche Fair is about being authentic. It is a brand new show created for buyers, like me, who want something different. Stephanie Jones, the curator {pictured with me below}, is amazing! Her and her team covered all the details and made this a great opportunity for young makers in the wholesale business and for retailers like myself. I am very lucky to have connected with Stephanie! 
All American Canning Co. is one of my current vendors at Little Luxuries of Mackinac. How fun is their label and jam flavors?! The strawberry shortcake preserve is my favorite! Look for new flavors this spring in our shop!
Of course, we have to make some time for some fun too! Lexy, Emily and myself make a great team. We are SO excited to bring on the new season! Niche Fair was definitely a great way to start off the season! 
Cleveland is a fun, clean city from what we saw. We stayed at the Westin right downtown and only had time to have lunch at Coastal Taco {it was very good!}near the river. 
Thank you Cleveland and thank you Niche Fair!
