April is just around the corner. And that means I need to prepare for a craft fair on April 8th. One I haven’t been to before which always makes me a little nervous. My usual strategy is to visit the ones I might be interested in first, to scout out the venue, crowd, and fellow vendors. I signed up for this one on the word from some vendors at a Christmas market in December.
It’s the Jamul Kiwanas’ Hot Rod and Chili Cook-off. You can see why I might be a little skeptical about selling my jewelry. No mention of a craft market, right? And it’s way the heck out in a very rural area at a large Thousand Trails campground. Does this sound like a good idea to you? I just hope that there will be folks who will be delightedly surprised to find a fabulous artisan craft market at the event.
The rest is show and tell. Got a lot done the last few days. Mostly in brass and Czech glass beads in pretty spring colors. And mostly long necklaces.
Tomorrow I’m concentrating on etching copper pieces. Really bummed that Radio Shack is going out of business. They were two minutes away and my supplier of etching solution. Glad I still have one bottle left.
