2011 Best of the Booths!

If you were able to join us for our December 2011 show, you will easily agree that the booths were uh-mazing.  We were continually blown away by our artists' creativity, execution and ability to think outside the box with their displays.  Our Best of the Booth judges, the ladies of Prairie Hive, had an incredibly difficult time choosing their favorites.  I'm glad it wasn't my job otherwise we would have had about 15 different winners!  ;)  

Without further adieu, our three Best 2011 Alliday Booths!

The shared booth of Woolyhands and Punkinhead

And the shared booth of This Creative Life and Robo Roku
See, SO hard to choose!  We CANNOT WAIT to see the booths our 2012 show brings!!

Alliday ALLSTAR: Rainbow Swirlz

There's a pretty good chance that you have some of Rainbow Swirlz work already.  You may wear it or you may carry it and if you were involved in our December 2011 show, you most certainly have one of their sturdy totes!  For our past show, we decided to offer free swag bags filled with goodies from our talented artists to the earliest of attendees to the show and also gifted specialized bags to our Allstars and Artists just for being awesome!  These bags (with graphic by Pop Prints) wouldn't have been possible without the hard work of Rainbow Swirlz, a screen printing company nestled right down the Turnpike in Stroud!

I personally fell in love with Rainbow Swirlz almost four years ago at Indie Emporium where I snagged my first of many designs of theirs.  It was about a year later that I met Mendy, the brains (and brawn!) of the company, and quickly fell in love with her strong work ethic, true blue honesty and sense of humor that never fails to make me laugh.  Their designs are endless as are their nonstop Facebook specials!  So if you're needing custom screen printing done, are looking for something new and comfortable to wear or are just wanting to support a worthy local business, check them out and become addicted like I did!
