Cee-Says One Fab Event’s Sip and Shop Convention was nothing short of FABULOUS!
On Saturday, I attended the One Fab Event’s Sip and Shop Convention. I loved the concept of creating a convention solely focusing on upcoming boutiques that are mainly based online. What I liked most about the event was the fact that it was the perfect amount of boutiques giving it not a chaotic but intimate feeling. You were able to take your time and walk to every booth and feel the quality of each item, and ask the boutique owners about their company while also being able to bargain for better prices. It was a 10 entry fee (that qualifies you for a raffle to win free merchandise) which in my opinion is a decent price for the convince. I was able to interview the lovely owner of One Fab Event Kelli Ferrell about motive for this convention and her company. Check it out below:
Tell me a little about yourself and why you wanted to create this convention
“My name is Kelli Ferrell I’m the owner of one fab even I was actually brought about the ship and shop from a client(Sonya Bee Boutique) ; she wanted to plan this event so we partnered up and came together along with some great boutiques literally from all over the world to produce this event.”
How did you choose the vendors for the conventions?
“We wanted to find vendors that had unique merchandise, who were fresh. A lot of people have boutiques these days and a lot of people have all the same stuff. We wanted to give our customers a variety of merchandise.”
I noticed that the boutiques in the convention were mainly online boutiques was that a conscious effort?
“It was because with a lot of online boutiques you order it and you have certain return policy. I wanted to be able to bring all these fabulous boutiques to one location where you can actually see feel, touch and try on the merchandise. It’s for the customers and it seem like it worked.”
Will this become something you hold annually or was this a onetime event?
“I think so, I think it’s definitely going to be an annual thing it might even be a tour connected to it.”
What’s next for One Fab Event?
“Well one fab even actually specializes in wedding and fabulous events that is my specialty so that’s what we will have in store . It’s crazy because I actually went to school for fashion merchandising and design so event planning is my creative outlet it’s what I love to do”
