First day at the International Fair

ooh! 8hrs of standing and smiling:) It was quite a learning experience understanding the differences in markets between US and Scandinavian (atleast Finnish market anyway). The culture (atleast in Finland) is slightly different from good old US. Here, most of the boutiques (and I mean most of them) do not carry jewelry and the few that carry are low-cost beaded (big wooden beads etc) jewelry. And these are quite top of the range boutiques. Most of the people who stopped by admired the designs and gave quite a few compliments which is always a good thing.

Met a couple of Fashion professionals, US folks, residing in Helsinki and workign in FinnFashion...

More tomorrow..
