Hello everyone! Happy Monday! HUGE thank you to everyone who attended the show yesterday! And HUGE thank you to the organizers of the show who made this fantastic event possible! I was very impressed with organizers' (Event California) attentiveness, great food they provided and all the advertising they put together!
This was my first show of this kind and I had a great experience participating! The atmosphere was very friendly! I met many etsy sellers from SF Etsy Street Team and got their cute little button and was happy to advertise etsy and their team.
The day started out a bit slow due to the cold and rainy weather outside, but picked up in the afternoon. I am very grateful for all the attention my table and my art received! ALL my business cards were gone and I met many wonderful people! I sold some prints, but no originals, which was expected due to the gifts-oriented nature of the show. Many people expressed interest in commissioning an original artwork and in checking out my website! So overall, I consider it a success for my first try out!
If you recently participated in an arts and crafts show, please share your experience by commenting on this article. I am very interested to hear it! Do you have any advice for my future shows? What made your show successful? Any tips? Where to promote it? etc.....
Thank you! Look forward to your comments!
