This past Saturday I participated in my very first arts festival, I need to tell you first how this came about. A local store expressed interest in selling my jewelry in their store, and thought it would be a great idea to introduce it to the public at the arts festival before they start selling in the store. I have never done this before, and I had no idea what to expect. I had only 6 days to prepare. Having only a select few pieces in my Etsy shop that I thought were worthy of selling at the festival, I had to get busy. All I did was make jewelry for 12 hours a day for 6 days! By the end of each day my eyes were crossing from threading needles and beading, and thought what have I gotten myself into?
My dear sweet mom came into town Friday night and helped me out Friday night, tagging and pricing, and on Saturday helped me set up the display and sat with me in the cold all day. She rocks! I was nervous for absolutely no reason at all. Even though I only sold a few things, it was the perfect platform for me to get my feet wet and get some experience. I don't know that this is something I could do on a regular basis but every now and then would be ok. Here are a few photos of my display. Have a wonderful Monday!
