I was invited to bring my hats and accessories to the Christmas Bazaar hosted by a few ladies in Hamburg over the holidays. It was an amazing experience. Unfortunately I don't have more photos as the night went on–it was just too busy, and I was working my stand alone.
It was really good for me to do this, and learn how it works, what's needed, and what I can do the next time I have this opportunity. I've also learned more about my client, the area here in Hamburg, and what they want.
Since I've been doing hats, I've had a surprising amount of success selling custom made hats for clients. I'm hoping on my return to NYC I can join in at the markets there. As my knowledge and experience has grown, I can't wait to share my hats back home.
In the meantime, I continue on in my studies, my explorations in hats, and the occasional bespoke piece for the Hamburg lady.
