The Circle of Sisters Expo was one of the biggest events Life By Wisdom has been a part of to date. We have only been in business for about a year. But after vending at different venues all spring and summer, we felt like we were ready to handle something much greater. Circle of Sisters 2014 was held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City on Oct 4-5, it was an awesome 2-day experience. There were over 10,000 people in attendance between the 2 days. Our booth number was 238, many people stopped buy.
The Evil Live shirts captured there attention, it says, “Turn EVIL Around and LIVE.” Some people got it right away, others said it took a moment, and some never got it until it was explained to them (EVIL is LIVE spelled backwards in case you didn’t get it lol). Nevertheless it was great talking to everyone, we built relationships with other vendors/business owners as well as consumers. My best seller was my, “If you can part it, you can comb thru it” raglan ¾ sleeve tee, everyone instantly thought it was funny in a cute sort of way and ultimately they Had to have it so I had to sell it to them. I had an awesome staff of seven individuals who really did a great job and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them, from setup to breakdown.
The only downside/upside to the weekend was that I was so busy I didn’t get a chance to enjoy some of the interviews or shows which wbls, wlib, and hot97 facilitated. Maybe next year because we will be back.
