Buckle Up - Show Season's Starting!

Alright, all you lovers of wacky tales of flying bugs the size of Volkswagons and men dancing in skirts, it's time for Summer Show Season! 

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
Buffalo Grove, IL
June 4 & 5

Naperville Woman's Club Logo

Naperville, IL
July 9 & 10

Lakeshore Arts Festival

Evanston, IL
August 6 & 7

Now, if I can just remember how the tent works and how to set up my display, it'll be great!

Bobbie, I wish you the very, very best of luck at these shows! I'm wondering if you'll run into Vanessa Walilko of Kali Butterfly Jewelry, since she lives in Evanston. If you don't know her already, you two would be good friends. Since you have beads and awesomeness in common. :)
