What a weekend! From a Mythic Market packed with a range of delights to evenings of out-of-this-world entertainment, Mythicon’s first year must be considered a brilliant show.
When your evening performers include Frenchy and the Punk, Kindred Crow, The Ohio Burn Unit, and the one and only SJ Tucker- along with several other fantastic acts- then you’ve done something right. The schedule had plenty going on, and it looked like everyone could always find something to their liking. Certainly every visitor that went by seemed to be having a marvelous time from visiting with mermaids and real live unicorns to presentations and games on folklore and fae history. .
One of the best things I can see as a vendor is that perfect combination of variety and scale- there were a lot of us, and I wasn’t the only leather vendor, but the other leather artists had styles so delightfully different that we were happy to wander and appreciate each others’ work. Well balanced markets aren’t easy to curate, but this show absolutely nailed it.
I hope my thanks also makes it back to the venue because even though the Eisenhower Hotel was dealing with their own renovations and an off-season (read: short-staffed) crew, they still took great care of us and accommodated the crew and vendors’ needs with professional courtesy. We appreciate it.
I will absolutely go back next year, and if you were on the fence about it, then you should come out too.
Folx looking to make online purchases please note that my online store is still down and will remain that way for some time. I am a one man leather crafting operation with multiple big shows lined up. However! The Contact page on this site, the Facebook page, the Instagram profile which is linked on this website, and my email ALL work! Send me a message any time to ask about a thing you saw on the table or want to have built.
Custom work is one of my favorite things- that way I *know* I’m building something that you will love!
NEXT UP: Find us at the water’s edge for Ocean Renaissance in Ocean City, MD this April! A fanta-sea by the sea where proceeds will be directed toward ocean cleanup efforts. The shop will be returning for the event’s second year after we had way too much fin the first time to miss this second chance.
See you then!
