Well, all the stars are in alignment and it looks like I will be taking BuskerBags to South by Southwest (SXSW)! WooHoo! I received my order of BuskerBags from Silverado Home (Albuquerque manufacturer) last week, and had them embroidered by Image Creator (Albuquerque) this week. Truly a home-grown product.
Then, my packaging department (me) inserted each bag in its proper container, and voila! We’re done and road ready. I will leave Sunday for Austin, allowing a few days prior to the SXSW Gear Expo to hang out at the venue and socialize (read: schmooze!). I am really looking forward to this trip and getting the BuskerBag® brand out there, even further.
Also, each BuskerBag that is sold at SXSW will have a BuskerBags® Coaster in the package. This is a double-sided, heavy duty coaster that you can place your wine, beer, coffee, or tea on while you are practicing.
You can see by the floor-plan below that I will be in booth 409, which will be right in the middle of the venue. Looks like a great place to sell out, again. If you’ll remember, I had a complete sell-out of the bags at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival last year. With as much traffic shuffling through the hall as expected, the odds are good for another sell-out. Wish me luck!
If you are going to be in the area, be sure to stop by and visit. Again, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your past and continued support of the original, one-of-a-kind, Made in the USA BuskerBag®!
