This weekend was the Trillium fest in Travelers Rest, SC. My friend Stephanie who is an amazing artist has been attending art/craft shows to promote her work. She also acts as a contractor for a couple of other friends/artists/crafters. She invited me to participate in this year’s festival in TR. I thought it would be fun to get some feedback on my crafts, so why not? It was a great experience but seriously tough work standing in the cold and talking with folks for 8 hours.
I had a handful of folks ask for prices on my coasters (19.00, in case you’re interested) but only one buyer (thanks Meg!).
We have another show that Stephanie is organizing coming up at the Handlebar on November 19th in Greenville. It will be a time for holiday shopping but also will be a food drive/chili cook off/ and beer and wine too! I’m super excited.
Here are the details and links:
