So, I participated my first show on Saturday, March 26th. It was the first Shop Schmooze and Savor Mini-Expo in Arlington presented by On Purpose Networking for Women.
I did okay, especially considering that I'm a newbie. I learned soooo much from some of the other artisans about display techniques and received some excellent advice. Here's where I'd like to do a shout out to Deb of A.W.E Handcrafted Jewelry. Deb is a true artisan and crafts some of the most amazing pieces. She also happens to be a really cool chick.
Aside from the fact that my table looked like a flippin' flea market, I really enjoyed getting out of the house, meeting some amazing folks, getting the opportunity to reconnect with Ginny Robertson (head guru/founder of OPN), and learning more about the craft show scene.
It boosted my confidence enough to actually apply for a juried show. So, I applied to the Handmade Mart that will be happening in Silver Spring, MD on May 22nd and was accepted!!!! Calendar it and come on by to see me. It'll be from 10am - 5pm. See you there!
