Saturday August 21st BananaJinTrades and I hosted Kpop Buy/Sell/Trade Day! We had an amazing turn out - with 30 sellers!
This event was actually my second buy/sell/trade day - with the first being in 2019 - but this event blew the first one completely out of the water! With 30 sellers we had a large range of items from albums, pcs, and other official merch to amazing fan merch like pins, drawings, ceramics, and special kpop candles!!! I saw many amazing items to help complete collections, start collections, or even be that special unique item just to have.
I want to say a big thank you to all the sellers that participated and helped make this event a success. Listed a below is a list of sellers (if I know their selling @ it will be listed!)

On July 31st ColoradoKpopper and KonnectPop hosted Red Lee Day! A Mark Lee and Red Velvet celebration! Just a day apart we decided to celebrated the 6 talented people together on their big days! Mark's 22nd birthday and Red Velvets 7 year anniversary.
We had the pleasure of hosting Red Lee Day at Snowl! A wonderful Boba shop in Aurora. Following our sweet and spicy theme we decorated the space with fruits and peppers, the cafe popping with color. Our photobooth section was complete with a watermelon backdrop, an appearance by SuperM mark Lee, and of course - a inflatable siracha bottle!
For this event we were raising money for the Superhero Heart Run - an organization for Congenital Heart Disease. Together we were able to raise $200 for this amazing charity. As incentive for donation we had 2 raffle prizes, a Red Velvet pack of an album, stickers, and a Red Velvet SM Bear pin won by Emily N. and a Mark Lee pack of an album and 2 SM Bear pins (NCT and SuperM) won by Joycelin G!
Lastly, I would love to give a huge shout out to Katy! One of my best friends for bringing her Red Velvet and Mark Lee collection to display for everyone to see. She had some great items from magazines to pcs to show off and allow us all to look through. I always love seeing other peoples collections and I hope you all enjoyed seeing hers!
Next, on August 7th, we were back at the fantastic Ju's Coffee for BlackPink's 5th Anniversary! I had partnered with KSA - UCCS' Korean Student Org. to bring you all this event and I loved it. We really took the blackpink into our theme - decorating the cafe with beautiful art posters, balloons, streamers, and pearls!
For this event we once again were raising money for the Golden Lotus Foundation - and thanks to everyone generous hearts we raised $100 to donate! The raffle prize for this event was an offical Blackpink Lightstick Vr. 2, lovesick girls art print, and Blackpink member buttons - a big congratulations to Jason K. for winning this raffle!
Thank you so much to anyone who attended either (or both!) of these events! I always love seeing and meeting you all and I can't wait to see you again! Make sure to check out the calendar to view all upcoming events!
