Hey guys! I just have a few quick notes! So, we are going to be at the Portland Pirate Festival Sep. 19th and 20th ( www.portlandpiratefestival.com ) the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival in Las Vegas Oct. 9-11 ( www.lvrenfair.com ) the Folsom Renaissance Festival in Folsom, CA Oct. 17-18th (www.folsomfaire.com ) and FINALLY, the DAAC Renaissance Arts Faire in Las Cruces, NM November 7-8th ( www.daarts.org ) That last one is a new one that we just got accepted into. Holla, New Mexico!!!
Anyway, the main thing that I'm trying to say is that our company has been so overwhelmed with custom orders (thank you, thank you) that we honestly just don't have huge inventories for these shows. I was planning on 400 corsets, and it's going to be closer to 200, if we're lucky....which sounds like a lot, but then you have to consider that we have 7 main styles that we carry at the festival, 8 different sizes, and about 40 different fabric options....and you spread all those apart between 200 and it's not that impressive of a selection.
We love our custom orders, but they do take a considerable amount of excess time because we're just cutting and sewing one thing at a time, rather than doing massive piles of assembly line style work. They have just really limited our inventory for the shows this year. If you are coming and expecting to have a broad range of things to try on...I think you're out of luck. However, if there's something...or even a few things in particular that REALLY want to see, you HAVE to tell me. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what corsets you want and what your size is, and I will try to sew my inventory accordingly. I'm doing my very best to make sure that we have amazing things for you guys, which is why I'm still working at 9:15, having started work at 5:00 this morning. I'm dedicated, and we need to keep making money so we can put a down payment on a house.....so, uh....work=good.
