January, 2012

  As I thought about this newsletter, I toyed with the idea of putting a recap of the past year in a photomontage but decided against it. (If you want to see photos from the past year, you can go to our Newsletter Archive on Rendezvous West website.) Yes, 2011 was a great year. We experienced some amazing opportunities and met some incredible people!

Many people like to reflect on the year past as they begin a new year but I wanted to look forward to the prospects of the year before us. This is always such an exciting time! We've already planned for the shows where we want to exhibit our work this year. The first show is coming-up next weekend at the Colorado Indian Market & Southwest Showcase.

The Colorado Indian Market is a feast for all the senses. Award winning artist from across the country, world class entertainers and great food. This year there will be a daily runway fashion show where we will be showcasing our jewelry & belts on the runway. For more details of all the attractions visit their website by clicking on the link to the right. You will find amazing show prices on several of our leather bracelets and leather vessels at this years Indian Market. To top that off we will be reimbursing you the price of your admission when you spend $100 with Rendezvous West! This is an event you won't want to miss! We will be at booth #522 in the Pavilion.

After the Indian Market, the next show will be Brian LeBel's Old West Show & Auction, June 22nd - 24th at the Denver Merchandise Mart. For now, I won’t go into the details of the other shows we have planned but its going to be a great year!

We hope you have some exciting plans you've made for yourself in 2012! If you want to share them with us you can post them on our Facebook page.  We're also looking for photos of you showing off your favorite Rendezvous West wood or leather vessel, jewelry or belt. We would love to feature your photo in our newsletter. You can email them to us at shamah@rwestart.com
