I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! I enjoyed sleeping in and working on jewelry while watching TV. Since my jewelry is made to order, I have been trying to build a small inventory for a local show "Lowcountry Artist Market" this coming Saturday(6/5) at Music Farm, downtown Charleston. I am pretty excited about it, because this will be my first real craft fair.The last time I had to set up a booth was at a farmer's market , and people were really surprised to see artists there. Since then, I have been selling my jewelry exclusively online, and after much consideration have decided to refrain from craft show commitments.That is why I still don't own a canopy.
Two months ago, when a past customer Kristin contacted me about this new craft show she was organizing, I was intrigued. She said she fell in love with buying handmade on Etsy when she was planning her wedding (she bought my pussy willow jewelry for bridesmaids) and decided to organize a craft show featuring local Etsy artists. Since it will be held indoors, I don't need to worry about not owning a canopy, and I am also excited to join other local Etsy artists in the same show.
Stop by and say hi if you get a chance!
