I also met a very creative couple, Amy and Kirk, who are fans of Victorian events and they loved my collars. I am planning to make custom collar for Kirk as soon as I find the perfect cranberry and grey tie to complement his waistcoat. He did find different ways to use my original smaller single tie designs.
Another fan was this young boy I met at a local church event. His mom was also a vendor at the event. We all donate something for the church to raffle to all attendees. This young gentleman honored me by picking my tie donation because he wanted to wear a tie, like his father. He was adorable and I did get permission to post his picture. His father liked my products so well he bought a Victorian collar as a gift for his niece and a flower for his wife.
