I participated in Plaza las Americas' annual Antiques Fair from september 9th to the 22nd. My lovely booth was located in front of GAP, on the first floor of Plaza las Americas. I personally worked the booth everyday, from 9 to 9, and sundays from 11 to 7. I had some help on some days, but I worked the booth completely myself. This was the first year I did this, and although it beat me to the core, I would not have had it any other way. It was an incredible experience : I met dozens of people, met hundreds more and gave out thousands of business cards. All my faithful friends and fans came to see me at Plaza, and got the great news that I was moving the shop to Avenida Winston Churchill #177, El Señorial. Everybody I talked to about the move was thrilled, which set my fears to rest about the acceptance of another move for Ouna's Closet.
see more after the jump...This is the 3rd year Ouna's Closet has participated in the Antiques Fair, and it always delights me how everyone I know comes to visit me in Plaza and how much attention my booth gets. I met so many awesome people, said goodbye to a few faithful friends who were leaving Puerto Rico permanently (so many tearful goodbyes I have had to go through this year!) and wanted to take some Ouna's treasures with them, and sold some of the most amazing vintage jewelry I had been hoarding just for the fair.
All in all, the Antiques Fair in Plaza Las Americas was a huge success. I was happy to be there for the two weeks, but so glad when it was over and I could continue to plan the rest of my moving Ouna's Closet to Ave. Winston Churchill and go back to my life.
