If you're relatively new to the blog, I do art fairs with my jewelry, and I chronicle the joys and adventures of my weekends here.
From the sublime (the wonderful woman who walked into my tent and purchased two of the most extravagant - and expensive - pieces in my collection without batting an eye) to the ridiculous (ever try to hold down a metal-framed tent in gale force winds? With lightning flashing? What could go wrong?) to the serendipitous (meeting online friends in person!), I love doing shows, I love meeting the people who attend them, and I love sharing the inevitable stories with you.
Since moving to Chicago and taking a job that often obligates me on weekends, my show activity has dropped quite a bit as I re-establish myself in a completely new market, but I have three shows lined up so far, with my fingers crossed as I await notification for two more.
Here's how the summer's shaping up so far:
Buffalo Grove, IL
June 4 & 5
July 9 & 10
August 6 & 7
Now, if I can just remember how the tent works and how to set up my display, it'll be great!
