In October, I blogged that I was invited to participate as a vendor for the following community craft shows in November: Craft Fest in Bedford Gallery; and Mistletoe Madness. Both the events were well curated with a variety of different artwork and handmade artisan goods. Business was good and I am glad that I’d prepared a wide selection of inventory to display for both shows.
Selling at shows and craft fairs is a wonderful way to gain exposure and to market small businesses and local artists. These events also serve as a wonderful opportunity to bring the local community and local artists together and is something fun for everyone. Doing these shows gave me the opportunity to admire other artist’s work. The variety of ideas, concepts, craftsmanship and presentation is enjoyable and an education in and of itself. Finally, the experience of meeting your customers face to face and the immediate feedback is helpful in developing ones presentation and understanding the tastes of your customers. Below are some pictures from the shows, and I am happy to share. Happy Holidays!
