Last weekend I traveled to southwest Ohio and set up a little booth for the Crafty Supermarket at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. This was my first indie craft show and it was so much fun being a vendor! I am still very new to the shows and events scene for my handmade business, but after leaving last weekend I knew I wanted to apply for the Crafty Supermarket's next show in November.
During the show I took note of the different comments and questions customers would ask me. For example, I was asked quite a few times if I could make matching bow-ties and hair clips for kids so they could match their dog. This is an idea I have been wanting to do for a while now and I am excited to make this happen! My favorite thing that was said to me was "Oh my gosh. There are so many reasons I need a dog, but this is definitely the top reason!" -referring to my bow-ties.
Overall, the show was a big success and I was introduced to so many cool artists and their work.
These were my favorite booths from Saturday:
|Cynthia Vardhan Ceramics|
|Good tunes accompanied us all day.|
|Andy J Miller from DesignKoma|
|Design Koma was screen printing fresh prints at their booth! I love when artists show their work in progress.|
|Animals made from vintage fabrics. Shop The Wind & The Sail.|
|The Wind and The Sail again. I really adored her vintage linen animals. Each one was unique.|
|Gracie Sparkles handmade cards.|
|Sara Gelbert is the designer from Excitations. I loved all her feather wood prints and leather jewelry! You can shop her products on etsy.|
Some of my other favorite vendors that I do not have photos of are the artists listed below:
Cordial Kitten (custom illustrations)
Sally Harless (art + illustration)
David Nebert (Works + Inspirations: organic life and recycled light bulbs)
Take a look at some of these artists and let them know you found them through Little Blue Feather!
