MiniComi 2017 Wrap-Up

MiniComi 2017 was a big success! Thank you to everyone who tabled, attended, and helped out – the event would not have been possible without you.

IMG_9428 editMiniComi kicked off with a great start – set up and check-ins were smooth, and the weather was thankfully kind to us.

IMG_9434Artists really stepped it up this year! There were a brilliant variety of items for sale, making a walk down the aisles filled with surprises. Not only were there countless beautiful prints of all styles, artists even brought comics, candles, homemade soap, crochet plushies, tea, accessories, and ice cream sandwiches.

Check out the slideshow below for pictures of some of our talented artists (info about them can be found here):
