I am still trying to bring the shop into some semblance of order after the first annual Stifel & Capra Birthday Bash. Whew! Lots of work but really worth it. We received lots of press coverage from our local paper, had City dignitaries visit (!) and best of all, it didn't rain! Yippee! I know some artists made more sales than others but all agreed that the visibility that the event gave to the shop was beyond calculation. I can't possibly be more grateful to all of the folks who made the event possible.
More than a few folks wondered if we were going to set up every week, but birthdays come but once a year. (Plus I don't think our landlord would go for it!)
