The craft show season is upon us, ladies and gentleman, and my dance card is filling up nicely already! Since this is my first spring/summer season in business I’m trying to do just a few great shows instead of just signing up for everything all willy-nilly.
In a few weeks (on April 16th, to be exact – go ahead and put it on your calendar) is Record Store Day at Luna Music in Broad Ripple. This is another show put on by the lovely Martha, the brains behind Handmade Promenade. There’s going to be great music and I’m hoping for good weather – it’s an outside show.
My crafty buddy Shan of Green Illuminations invited me to participate in an open house hosted at a friend’s house in May. I’ve never done an open house, but I’m excited. I think the more intimate setting will be great for getting to know some new customers.
I just found out Tuesday that I got accepted to the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange Summer Show. This is SO AWESOME. I’ve been to this show the past two years and am always so impressed by what’s sold there, so it just knocks me over that I’m going to be a part of it.
Although I haven’t managed to send in my application yet, I’m planning on being at the Rocky Ripple Festival again this year. The 2010 show was my very first show so it’s going to be great to no longer be a rookie!
I’ll probably try to find one more show in July or August to finish up the bobaloo! Summer Tour. If you’ve got any suggestions, let me know!
Are you a craft show shopper? Any shows you try not to miss?
