I had a GREAT time. My sales numbers were pretty solid. I LOVED the venue (OMG OMG OMG). I LOVED my booth space, and really liked the people who I was next to. I felt a lot of synergy created just by being next to those vendors.

I thought the show was very well organized. I love the location, parking was easy, good music. No complaints at all!

Set in a SF hotspot, I managed to find some unique vintage jewelry for myself, a Father’s Day gift for my dad and a couple new designers to share with my readers on FabSugar.com. And the cocktails, tunes and hummus made the experience even better!

I just wanted to take the time to let you know that your events are absolutely exceptional, especially the shopping events. They are organized so well and the energy that exudes from each designer/vendor showing off their goods is so refreshing to see and to be apart of. I love supporting all of them. I always find the greatest deals on the coolest things too. The music is always right up my alley and the overall ambiance of all of your events is something you have clearly mastered. I cannot wait to attend your next event.

I really loved being a part of your event yesterday. You and your sister, Marie, were so warm and friendly – breakfast for vendors? How thoughtful!  Plus, you made the logistics so easy – hooray for loading zones!

The vendors were top notch, selling handcrafted items that were truly lovely and unique. Many of us vendors bought items from one another and I saw several vendors swapping items with each other – which is one sign of a great selection of items at a show! My six year old daughter loved meeting each of the vendors and asking them questions about their work and their techniques. Plus, the DJ was amazing. The other vendors and I were dancing and singing along with his awesome mix! I can’t remember the last time I had such a good time vending at a show. Thanks again for a wonderful day!

Thank you for putting on such a nice event! Aside from enjoying myself and the cool atmosphere, my sales exceeded my expectations, so I will definitely be back for another event soon. I appreciated having such a good spot in the middle by the bar, and also the assistance from your staff at the end since we had to pack up quickly. You did a great job pulling in a good crowd, and it seemed that everyone who bought jewelry from me really loved what they bought-almost fanatically–so I guess I was a good fit! Thanks again, and I look forward to participating in another event soon!

This has been a successful show for me. I sell vintage jewelry and jewelry made with vintage beads. The customers that attend these events are excited and supportive of the local design community, and have proven to me that they come to these shows to shop! Each show that I have participated in has been well promoted, and I feel the promoter, Lina Shatara, genuinely cares about participants having a fabulous time and being part of a growing designer community. I am excited about what is to come with D.A.I. because of my positive experiences, contacts with press, supportive shoppers, organizations that it benefits, and of course all the amazing designers!

“I love the ambiance of the show. All the people involved are friendly, helpful and fun and visitors can eat, drink and get their nails done. There are great things to buy in a party atmosphere. I do well at this show and people from it are still buying from me after the show. I had a great day!”

DAI is a fun way to shop with friends while having a drink, relaxing and browsing unique merchandise. They offer items that can’t be found at any store, and the people are really friendly too!

I have only been to one DAI event and the event was so well organized and so unique from others that to this day it still resonates in my mind. What makes these events so chic are not only the uniqueness of the jewelry, clothes, and accessory one can buy, but the ambiance of the place makes a Plain Jane woman into a diva fashionista! This is a place in which art comes to life in a form of a chunky rings, sparkling earrings, funky shirts, and shiny wallets! This fusion is one of a kind and a great success!

Each event has a unique blend of designers, artists and innovators. The collective effort is a fabulous mix of talent in which a portion of proceeds supports community organizations.
