The Holiday Flea Experience | My Brands First Holiday Season
Wow, what a weekend!
I was so excited and humbled to see some familiar faces this weekend return to the Denver Flea to shop for their own personal "Arsenal." Nothing is more exciting than realizing you're gaining a following and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to The Denver Flea for providing such a platform that allowed me to continue to grow and foster those relationships. The Denver is not a "Flea Market" it's a Makers Market with some of the most talented Makers and Shakers I have ever met. Everyone is an entrepreneur with their unique flair on there displays and products and are always inspiring me to think bigger. I was also able to bring "Phantom Dawn" into the mix with props and memorabilia to connect the overall goal of the shop to fund my indie film!

This weekend blew away all my expectations! I am so blessed to have the support of my friends and family in running this. Big shout out to Stephanie Shepard, Carly Perona, Angie Gomez, Bill and Lisa Graber, and my Dad John Shattuck and Brother Johnny Shattuck, as well as my Sister Brandy Shattuck who I know, would have loved to have been able to make it up from Corpus Christi, Texas.
To my amazing Mom, Janice Shattuck. Your spirit continues to guide me and push me to keep going even when I'm down. I love you and miss you more then I could ever put in to words. I do all this for you Mama!
For the first time since opening, I found us selling out of many of my handmade goods and original Art Prints! I had many late nights and early mornings of making new inventory for each day. What were my biggest sellers at the Denver Flea you may ask?
To put it simply, We had a blast. With the money earned this weekend plans are already underway to do something that will make 'Arsenal Wares' even more self-sufficient. It will allow me to grow it on a massive scale all before the one year Anniversary of opening my tiny little Etsy shop on January 14, 2018. So expect great things before Christmas, and keep on buying Arsenal Wares and I'll keep making!
