Ah, the first weekend of spring! Wasn't it marvelous? I know the calendar said so, and Mr. Robin Redbreast said so and my little crocuses said so.....
but I don't rely on them to tell me it's Spring. I rely on Irv! When he digs out his trusty old blue work-in-the-yard shorts....I KNOW it's Spring!
Remember these old beat up candle holders I bought at the resale shop? One was broken and they were a mess?
It took a bit of work from handy Mr. Irv to repair the one, but he did and this is what I turned them into!
I also finished the photo album was working on, and got it in the mail to Matt out in Telluride. It's full of pictures of things I sell in FourDogDay and MyOtherShop. He's going to put it in the teacher's lounge at his school for a week or so. I included business cards and some 15% off coupons in the back of it. I'm hoping it will inspire the teachers to go in my shops and take a look around. We shall see.
There is an awesome juried craft fair in a town near me in May. It's called Fair Diddley. I haven't done any kind of show for a zillion years and I have never done a juried show. The deadline has already passed, but I spoke to a lady on the phone today and she said they usually have some cancellations and to send my application and photos in. I put everything together already and I'll mail it out tomorrow. I've been to the fair a number of times and I know my stuff "fits"...whether they find it "worthy" is another story. I hope so....I would really like to have this one be my first show. It's on "the Square" of a cute little town called Woodstock, and is well visited with free admission. I'll keep you posted.
I'm in the hunt for other craft fairs for this Spring and Summer...how do you find them? Do I have to just search the internet or is there an easier way? Do you do a lot of shows? How do you like it? Fill me in on the scoop!
