Showtime: 2024 UFO/Paranormal Summit

Greetings friends!

Just a quick update with some photos from our latest event: Although it was on very short notice, we packed up the "shop" and headed for Ocean Shores, Washington for the 2024 UFO/Paranormal Summit during the first weekend of May.

We were delighted to have been invited to the "reboot" of this event after our last time there in 2019, before Covid!

Sarah was one of the presenters in the main conference hall, while I kept the Alchemy Stones tables in the vendor area.

Because the event was announced with relatively short notice, we lucked out and got a "double table."

This has long been our favorite "niche event" and it is put together and run by some wonderful folks, and the attendance is typically very large, drawing from both metro Seattle-Tacoma and metro Portland. This year was no exception, and we're really glad to have this even back on the show calendar!

Overall, I am just really happy that it seems like "going to events" has pretty much recovered to the point we were at, by the end of 2019. It has been a few strange and turbulent years for independent arts and crafts people, particularly if you're primarily depending on face-to-face events for the bulk of your sales, as we do.

Although Alchemy Stones do photograph quite well, part of the appeal comes from simply being able to hold them in your hand.

Anyway, we're hoping to come back to this event next year, although you never know! Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth to say hello, and thanks to Johnny Manson and crew for putting on a great event!
