This is a little late in posting, but a few weeks ago I attended my first craft show of the season.
The Statesville Artisian and Crafters Expo was held in our local mall. While the show was ok, and the promoters worked hard, there was very little foot traffic. I think that was because the mall is dying. :0( When we first moved down here, the mall was at full capacity, but now there are only a handful of shops there. I heard that the owner of the mall is letting all the leases expire so they can tear it down and build a strip mall, but I don't see that happening. That whole area of town is is shrinking. Oh well, at least I made my booth rental and a little extra by the end of the looooong day.
Here's a few pics to lighten the mood.
This is Rena....she does thumbprint art, AND she had her 18 day old baby with her. I was impressed.
This is my spot.
And this is Mabel...my new mannequin.
My new blue shelves and the modge podged heads, you almost can't tell where the cat chewed one of the noses off. lol
How this for a business card holder? Thank You Pinterest. The only problem was that kids kept playing with the slinkys causing the cards to fall.
I met lots of talented people there, and you can see pictures of all the vendors on the SACE
Now my next show in May is...
Faith Community Fest. This one looks like a lot of fun. I bet Hannah doesn't spend much time at our booth during this show. hahaha
Are you participating in any shows this year?
