Pickin Boise!

This is our second year attending Pickin’ Boise! (cause its the second year it has existed! Haha) It is a local show at the fairgrounds that features artisan craftsmen as well as antique furniture, pretty much anything that’s super awesome and unique will be there. Hence why WE’RE going:)

THE GOOD:
Last year we brought A TON of stuff! From big to small, colorful to colorless, light to heavy. And heavy again, and heavy one more time. It was an absolute blast! The feel is SO much different than we are used to. We are accustomed to having people walk into our retail location, people who have looked for us and made a conscious decision to come in. At the show, its a competition for attention. Just because someone is relatively near your booth doesn’t mean they’re interested. Its kind of like dating, just because a person makes eye contact with you doesn’t mean they’re interested. But its fine, they probably don’t appreciate pizza and wine as much as you do and you don’t need that in your life.—

We digress. Anyway the show is WILD. There is a hoard of people, all looking for that next unique thing they didn’t know they needed to complete their spaces, and we love being a part of that. Because we truly believe we have some of the coolest and most unique pieces out there, and we stand behind our products 100%. At the show last year, we partnered with Mustache Flats who many of you surely know (visit our “Our Friends” Tab if you don’t) He will also be in attendance with us! We couldn’t be more excited:) Swede, the builder, is a man’s man, standing about 6 foot 9 but has a personality bigger than that, don’t ask us how, just come meet him. His beard is something pulled straight out of the movie “Tombstone” and a bear would be jealous of the paws on this guy. Truly, this man is an artist and having him as one of our largest suppliers means the world to us<3

THE BAD:
Last year we brought like 14 tables, each one weighing about as much as the car in your garage. And we carried each one the length of a football field. (Maybe a Pee-wee league football field but it still counts.) Yeah so we definitely aren’t doing that again. There isn’t enough coffee on this planet to give us the energy to move that many, maybe we just need to change our diet but stop your judging RIGHT NOW. We haven’t decided EXACTLY what pieces to bring, but rest assured, weight will be a criteria;) We have a TON of really cool items we are excited to show you all! The fact that we have amazing consignors who trust us is exactly why we do this. Our purpose is to serve them and our customers, and this is an amazing opportunity to get our name out there at the same time!  So thank you to each of you, our attempt to give all of you the best service we can is our highest goal.

WHAT DOES THIS PICKIN BOISE LOOK LIKE FOR US:
We’ll just come and find out!;) Haha but really, we haven’t completely decided yet, BUT we will have tables (The heavy ones, thanks Tropical Salvage), signs– Idaho ones, metal ones, funny ones. Radios to blast music as loud as they’ll let us, and PLENTY of super unique finds that ONLY We have. The truth is, we haven’t figured out every detail. But we will soon, sometimes the best ideas come from a thought 5 minutes prior. We have learned that having fun is the most important thing, and figuring out every single small detail sometimes isn’t worth the stress. A lot of you say this in the store, “I’ll know it when I see it.” And this will be a similar approach for us. What we DO know is that this is going to be extremely fun, its $7 for both days and we really hope to see you all there:)

Until next time friends
