After working at our business for just under two years now, we finally had an opportunity to have a booth at Anime Central 2012 in Rosemont, Illinois.
It was an amazing experience to be able to sell our artwork to so many awesome people. Melissa and I have been working effortlessly on our shop since 2010, and it was a huge pay-off to be at such a huge and amazing convention like Anime Central.
We really over-prepared though, as we had no idea what to expect. It took us 3 solid months of work to make all of the necessary supplies for the Convention, which turned out to mostly be a waste as we didn't need that much stuff at all! But at least now we'll be prepared for next year and any other conventions that find their way into our schedule between now and then.
Thanks to all of you who came out and may have seen our booth! If you're interested in our product and would like to check us out, please visit www.8bitclassics.etsy.com!
