What I like to call "Boutique Season" is officially here. September marks the start of the busiest time of the year for me. Shows become back to back weekends rather than once a month. This weekend was the Midori Kai Arts & Crafts Boutique. It was my second time doing this one and there was another great turnout. Thank you to everyone who came by and supported the show.
This weekend was the 9th annual Los Angeles Tanabata Festival as part of Nisei Week. My first time participating in the festival was a lot of fun. Thank you so much to for having me. This was the first and only event I have in SoCal for the summer. I got to see some familiar faces and also meet a lot of new people. Thanks to everyone that stopped by!
I just got back from Las Vegas last night for this year's Obon Festival. It was my second time doing this event and it was nice to meet more new customers. I also get to see some family members who live in Vegas and others who participate in all of the Obon activities. It's always a fun weekend out there. I hope to be back again next year.
I'm very happy to announce Hello Sushi's newest retailer with Momo in Seattle's Japantown! I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Lei Ann, at the Japan Fair a couple weeks ago. We had some discussions about doing business together and I was able to leave items with her while I was in town. Be sure to stop by if you're in the area! This is an awesome gift shop located in the Japantown and Chinatown part of Seattle. Check the stockists page for more information.
This weekend marked off another out-of-state show for me. The third one so far this year and it won't be the last. Thanks to everybody who attended Japan Fair and shopped with us at Hello Sushi! This was my first time at the event and I also got to enjoy some time in Seattle. It was nice to meet a bunch of new customers and vendors. Hopefully I'll be back again next year.
