Rubber Stamp Convention: A Stamp in The Hand and Lost Coast Designs

Hello Dear Stamper Friends:
Yesterday I attended a Rubber Stamp Convention held in my area ...
This badge was given to the vendors and exhibitors
and I got one for being part of the Design Team (DT) of Lost Coast Designs (LCD)...

as you may have heard me say several times here in my blog, LCD stamps can only be bought through this type of conventions, or through their online website store...

Linda travels quite a lot around the country and the world, as a matter of fact twice a month...so check her schedule for next year's conventions...

my impressions of the show...

I sadly have to say that is show was quite small, few vendors came and few people too!!! every year it gets smaller and smaller...this is too sad...

  2. Hi Bibiana, thank you for sharing your photos, such a shame less vendors and visitors , that`s when they do not do these show`s in these particular area`s, we all have to support them.
    Hugs pam.

  4. Great to hear you had a good time there, and there´s definitely some great things there too. But what a shame to hear, that there comes less vendors and visitors every year, and unfortunately it´s the same everywhere, I´m afraid, as we can see the same here, and even we only have very few arrangements here every year, it´s the same trend, it gets smaller each year and this year ir was a real disappointment for the only one in our area, so not even sure, I´ll bother to go next year, but it is really sad, as it used to give sooo much new inspiration and enegergy to go there and see all the new comming out, but this year there was not even one new thing to see there. Let´s hope, that it´s going to turn soon, as it seems the times begin to look better again for many.
    The badge were really cool, and looks beautiful and thanks soo much for sharing all the pics here.

  9. Hi Bibiana, thanks for sharing the stamp show photos with us. Some of these companies are old friends, that I get to see on the East coast. Some are new to me. We're seeing the same dwindling of vendors at the stamp conventions here in this area as well. Too sad, but I expect it's more economical for them to do 'online' rather than travel to shows, pay for a booth and not be certain to recover their expenses. I'm glad you had good fun, and look forward to seeing some of your finds in upcoming posts. Take care. TFS & Hugs

    1. you are right...the boots here in the USA are very expensive but I have heard that the booths in Europe are even more expensive and over there I think the big shows are really big !!! with big crowds but in big cities...I believe!
      thanks for your input too

  14. This looks amazing Bibiana, so sad its getting smaller with less people, we should be embracing these fairs etc as not many about, looked like a great assortment there.

    will look forward to seeing what you are going to create with your buys.

    Love & Hugs

  16. Hi Bibiana,
    It was so nice to talk with you at the show on Saturday. You are as nice in person as you are on your blog. There are certainly not many vendors at this fall show but I had no problem spending WAY to much money. As long as they keep having the shows I will attend if only to see samples and keep in touch with other stampers.

  22. Great selection of photos to give an over view of the show Bibiana. Here in the UK businesses are cutting back on the number of shows they attend too. Sadly a sign of the times. I know how expensive the stand areas are to hire. I will be having a look at the ranges of a couple of new suppliers you have showcased though.....Barbara x

  23. Thank you so much for posting the pics. Really enjoyed seeing the nice products. I have been to a couple of shows, and enjoyed them so much. But I also noticed that they are getting smaller with fewer vendors. It the sign of the "tight" times, everyone is feeling the pinch of less to spend.

  24. Love the show at Ally Pally in the UK but haven't been recently as it is hard to see the demos, can get really crowded and I don't have the spare cash that one of the shows needs!!!

  25. Lucky you, looks like lots of fun! It is great to see the products up close, instead of only through a photo!
    Hugs, Antonella :-)
