Arts and Crafts Fair

Here is a pic of the sign I made for the Arts and Crafts Fair I did yesterday. I used Karyn Gartel’s Softly Spoken Workshop Technique. She offers GREAT online workshops that I would highly recommend. The funny thing was, someone at the show actually offered to buy the sign! I didn’t sell it though. The show went well and I am pleased. One thing that surprised me was the reactions that my work got. I live in this little online, zne, altered world and I live in the Midwest. A lot of people had not even seen altered art in Springield, MO. There were several that knew what it was, but the majority didn’t. It was an eye opening experience. I did sell quite a bit of work, and several of my larger pieces which was exciting. I made quite a few soldered pendants and such, with mini collages because that’s what usually sells at fairs. I also had someone ask if I would be interested in selling wholesale. I said I might, so I’ll write more about that if anything comes from it. Overall it was a positive experience and the extra $$$ will definitely be welcome as Christmas approaches.

  1. I think the majority “got it”. They were just intrigued for the most part, because it isn’t your usual country crafty stuff. No crocheted T.P. roll holders in my booth-lol! I think it was a very positive reaction overall. It was a busy booth. Lots of people stayed and looked at everything.

  2. Gosh Pam, your family is beautiful! I know what you mean about being involved in our little online world of altered art, while out in the “larger world” so many people haven’t a clue about our creations. I’m curious did most people have a positive reaction? Did they “get it”? Apparently some did if you sold right?!
