I know I've mentioned before that one of my dreams is to start selling my handmade wares at local craft shows and marketplaces. Unlike my normal mode of operation, I have really been researching and planning this next venture for my creative work. (Normally I'm just a jump right in and figure it out later girl).
One of things I'm doing is traveling to vintage, handmade events, taking notes and deciding if what I do fits at that particular marketplace before putting together a presentation, filling out the application and shelling out the entry fee.
Earlier this month I traveled South 75 miles to check out the Queen Bee Market. I really liked the eclectic mix of vendors. Now I wish I'd taken more pictures to share with you.
I loved seeing how the booths were set up and imagining how I will set up my own space. For me that's half the fun...creating your own little piece of vintage/handmade heaven.
I even got to chat with one of my favorite artists Stephanie Ackerman and purchase one of her hand painted zipper bags that I'll share with you a little later.
So, do you like going to craft fairs and vintage market place events? What kinds of things do you go looking for? I'd love to hear...
