Shelby sets up at Sky City
Another weekend in Augusta? Most of you are probably thinking, why in the world would Sally and Shelby go back to a small town in Georgia two weekends in a row to sell handmade goods? Well, I'll tell ya. Augusta is awesome. Well, the city leaves a bit to be desired sometimes, but the people in Augusta are awesome. And we had to go back when invited by the owner of our favorite Augusta venue, Sky City.
Sky City played host to all three of our "Sally Ann Lingerie Fashion Shows" in the past two years, and even right next door, the gallery where I had my gallery exhibition (Videos of each runway show: 1, 2, 3, and gallery opening) . There was a local art festival a few blocks down, and Coco, the owner, asked us to set up shop in front of Sky City on Friday and Saturday.
It was amazing seeing old friends and acquaintances swing by the shop, even those that I didn't know that contributed to our Kickstarter fundraiser to finish Shelby. While we didn't have a lot of unique visitors, many friends came by to show their support and purchased their own one-of-a-kind Sally Ann pieces. Enjoy some photos of friends and customers donning their new wares!
The lovely Carrera in a Sally Ann bow. Love this lady! She also purchased a beautiful scarf, one of four made from fabric my sister, Rachael, purchased in Bahrain during her career in the Navy. I made four scarves from the fabric last week, kept one for me, my BFF Sarah bought one, Carrera the third, and friend's wife bought the fourth. I knew they'd go quick. It's the scarf you'll see me wearing in this post and many, many more to come.
Liv in her Sally Ann Lipstick Dress. She purchased it last weekend at The Big Local, and I was pleasantly surprised to see her Friday night, pairing the dress with a cute denim jacket. Ahh, I'm so happy to be getting out my denim jacket for my New York trip this weekend. I forgot how much I LOVE denim, with this hot summer in Florida. I digress, but Liv is awesome, and I'm so happy to have met her.
I posted the video for yesterday, Carrie a scarf, and Brittany a purse. Love these ladies and so happy I captured this moment with this picture!
These past few weeks of sewing, selling, and driving have been a huge blur and whirlwind. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, when Matt and I fly to NYC for a long weekend. While the outsider may see my travels and pictures online as all funtimes, this will be the first real vacation we've had in a while. We're always always working and playing at the same time, but this weekend is strictly play.
AND! I have a real treat for y'all. My boyfriend, Matt, asked to be a guest blogger this weekend. So while I'll still be in the picture, he'll be the man behind the keys, bringing you an inside look into our little weekend getaway in the Big Apple.
Happy Thursday, friends! I'm off to pack. AGH I can't wait to dig out my jean jacket!
