Well, I went and did it. After being out of work for months, and being
prodded yet again to sell my work, I finally let myself get talked into
trying it for real. I have a friend who travels the crafts show circuit in
the west doing
who told me of a show with a very small entry fee of $20.00 and it
Okay I actually said" Why not"?
This weekend I toddle off, borrowed booth in hand, to spend two
incredibly HOT smokey-air-filled-days-from-forest-fires under a plastic
awning for shade, cooler with water and food in hand, to sit in a 10'x10'
space watching people scrutinize my work, handle it and hopefully not get
beat up too badly.
The primary goal is to hand out business cards, generate interest
and listen to what it is that is liked and not liked.
DH has finished putting up a website just for me and we managed to
do it without actually spending any money, no mean feat!
Wonderful friends have designed my logo and are spreading the word,
family swears up and down to help get the word out as well.
Wish me luck, please and if anyone else has done this sort of
thing I'd love to hear about it. Especially if there's a chance
I need to arm myself prior to attending.
