Momomints at the NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley dressed as Fluttershy and Totoro![/caption] The NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley was definitely one of the most challenging craft markets for Marissa & Sami of Momomints so far! We were both busy with many of our own personal responsibilities outside of Momomints but were both super excited to be part of such an exciting convention at UBC in Vancouver. We even tried our best to fit in by doing a bit of cosplaying ourselves! Sami dressed up as Fluttershy and Marissa dressed up as Totoro (inspired of course by a famous Wesley Chan cosplay outfit). [caption id="attachment_1111" align="aligncenter" width="610"]Momomints Handmade Gifts at the NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley at UBC Vancouver Momomints Handmade Gifts at the NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley at UBC Vancouver[/caption] We wanted to created lots of exciting new products catered toward the Artist Alley market at NorthWest Fan Fest. This included many cute additions like our new Momocub Pouches, Amigurumi Hair Bow Clips, Paperclip Organizers, fridge magnets sets, and the reintroduction of our Momomugs!

Artist Alley was a 3 day event, running Friday-Sunday and we wanted to ensure that we were well stocked!

Buy a sketchbook, get a free paperclip organizer!

[caption id="attachment_1112" align="aligncenter" width="610"]Momomints Handmade Gifts at the NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley at UBC Vancouver Momomints Handmade Gifts at the NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley at UBC Vancouver[/caption] Despite being drained, being able to see our customers in person and hearing all the great feedback definitely kept us going! We find these markets to be one of the most rewarding parts of running Momomints!

Craft'ed was also there showcasing their adorable magnetic bookmarks! We also met Kennett at the NorthWest Fan Fest!  Kennett was very sweet, managing the table while Diana of Craft'ed browsed around.

They are so absolutely lovely in person, just like they are in their Youtube videos! We are working with them on something special! Announcement will be in the following blog post! Thanks so much Monique and Micah for visiting us. We would just like to close off and give thanks to all the new customers that came out to support our shop! We can't wait for our next market and will be announcing more details in the coming month! Many thanks and hugs all around!
