I love this time of the year, when craft shows get into full swing in light of the upcoming holiday season. It is such fun to take my pieces to a show, set them up, and see people trying them on and choosing something as a gift for a loved one or as a treat for themselves! Such a great feeling and such a compliment that they would choose to wear something I created!
Today I began to get ready for the show i will take part in over the weekend next week. It is my favorite one of the ones I do in the fall, although it is not the largest. I am re-packing my jewelry so that it can be set up in a fairly short time, as there are other craft items I will be helping to set up at this very special show, hosted by a very special friend who sets up her entire house over one weekend at the beginning of November to be a craft showcase. People leave off their items and we set them up, run the show, and when it is all over they come pick up whatever is left of their items. The house is sometimes so loaded with customers that there is quite a line to check out. I am so honored to have my jewelry in this special event!
This picture is my display, as it looks right before a craft show. Every year my display grows exponentially. Next year I will easily need 3 tables instead of only these two. Also, there will be hanging necklace displays, as I have many new styles I am developing that will need adequate display area. Wall space, even in a tent set-up, is a valuable commodity!
Heads up people! We are now in CRAFT SHOW SEASON!
