The Art Star Craft Bazaar was great!

Fantastic weather and a well organized event. Megan and Erin really do an A+ job of putting this event together, great vendors, excellent advertising, helpful volunteers, and a jumbo crowd of shoppers.


Plus the people watching is probably the best of any show in the area.
I do enjoy seeing new fun eyeglass frames. I saw a pale pink pair on someone that I would like find for myself. Plenty of interesting hair-do’s to check out . Lots of tattoos, it seems women have way more ink than the men or maybe the are just much better at showing it off with the correct clothing choices. Also getting to check out the clothing and bags of real live people is great fuel for my own creative energy. I’m going to need it to get my inventory back up for the next show.

I have been busy with clay, hand-forming, scratching, stamping, poking, carving, brushing, staining, underglazing and glazing.

My original painting was featured in this Etsy storque article about free shipping for the holidays. Who knew?
It’s always surprising to me to be chosen from a sea of thousands. I’d almost want to woo-hoo and high five but I don’t care for either of those things. You have to scroll the WHOLE article I’m all the way at the bottom in related items.

A mostly rainy day followed by a few hours of sun. Many shoppers still came out despite the rain,  it was extra disappointing that many vendors near me were no-show. I would change how main street is set up for this show. From east to west: food, crafters and then fancy cars without the big spaces in between. Still a good show though.DSCN2628
This type of weather makes my hair crazy-like sticking out sideways.
So when I saw this picture of myself on their website I was surprised that the hair was only half crazy.

Participated in two great shows this weekend. The first on Saturday was the Handcraft Harvest at the Promenade in Marlton.
A show with about 35 vendors. A well run, easy to do show with a lot of shoppers.

On Sunday I participated in the Arts in Park show at Smithville, Eastampton NJ
Wow! What a great arts event this is. The live music was excellent and included a jam band, New Orleans jazz band, alternative folk rock, and straight up rock band. Tons of kids events and performances, dancers, stilt walkers, art demos, marching band, puppet theater with huge puppets, art cars (I’ve always wanted to meet the people who have the nerve to decorate and drive around in these crazy cars-true free spirits).

Girls on Trapeze
set up right behind my booth. They were phenomenal. They had the young girls in the audience worked into a frenzy. There was so much going on I wish I could have walked around more. This show is a quality event and you can feel the time and effort that is spent in selecting everything that is involved.

Okay, it was raining for most of the morning and it put a damper on some of the activities. I dislike setting up my stuff in the rain, as do all other artists and crafters. It’s like playing that game with a balloon where it can’t touch the ground but you have to keep it moving around the room. Exhausting. The rain definitely kept people away.
The artists are really only one aspect of the event, not the main focus so looking was big and buying was minimal -I think for all involved. That is not to say this show isn’t successful. Just maybe not for those who bring in the big bucks at shows.

A handful of small messenger bags from new fabric prints, 3 handbags and one tote (new design).
Totally random placement- I hang the bags on this wall as soon as I finish to get them out of the way.
