Over the years, I have participated several small arts & crafts shows. Currently, I am preparing for a 25+ hours, three day adventure called Winterfair Columbus, and I am really excited and slightly overwhelmed. As an introvert, I know that three days of the emotional/physical ride are going to be fun, but they will also knock me out. The best thing I can do now is stay positive and be prepared, so I am starting lists and piles and getting myself mentally in shape for the bonanza of holiday shoppers, and hopefully new fans!
There are lots of helpful blog posts out there, like this excellent one at Handmadeology: The Science of the Handmade, where they have accumulated a long list of articles. Right now I am working on a banner and getting my tags in order, which will include prices and a brief blurb about the artwork. Hope to see you in Columbus, Ohio, December 5-7th! Back to work!
