We just spent the last 7 days at Holiday Mart (Kansas City Junior League show) and had a wonderful time! The crowd was good, the show was organized and we got some great exposure for Bella Vita and our local artists. After 8 hours on the road yesterday, we pulled right up next to the store and the girls started loading the trailer again for the Merry Marketplace show at the Memphis Agricenter this week.
We had a 10x10 size booth in KC, but we'll have our usual 10x20 booth here at the Agricenter this week. It gets better, we have a 10x30 booth in Jackson, MS at Mistletoe this year so be prepared to see our biggest and best booth ever!

Here's a couple of quick iPhone shots from KC:

The Overland Park Convention center was a first class facility in a great part of town. Other cities(including Memphis) should take notice

We originally built this 7 ft. tall to carry smaller art canvas's for this year's shows...but it's now being used for displaying our frames. It held up well!

"Bella" was pinned with about 50 or more of these Vintage Gypsy Swaps. They were a huge hit! By end of day, she was "naked" and she rocked the rest of the show with an apron!

Thanks to the Kansas City Junior League and all the new friends and customers we met in Kansas City! Not everything you saw at the show is currently sold online, so please contact us if you need assistance finding anything!

Elf Picture
This year, make the holidays Magical, Mischievous, and Fun! Elf Magic creates “magic” elves that spend Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve with children and families, bringing a genuine warmth and closeness within in the home and creating memories that last a lifetime. Elf Magic elves “magically” appear from the North Pole each holiday season ready to be touched and loved- and sometimes to turn their playful thoughts into mischievous late night adventures. Children may awaken to find that their elves have moved the family car in the middle of the night…or have gotten into the Christmas cookies and left behind only a few crumbs. The possibilities are endless!
The magic begins with your child writing a letter to Santa, asking for an elf to visit for the holidays. The elf will then appear between Thanksgiving and Christmas to create a special time of fellowship and mischievous fun. On Christmas Eve, the elves must return home to the North Pole, but not before leaving one last gift wrap mess!
