Today begins the YMCA Craft Fair at University Mall in Blacksburg, VA. I am really looking forward to the weekend and have no doubt it will be awesome. I am there 12-7 today, 10-7 tomorrow and 12-5 on Sunday. My booth is right inside the front doors with a wall of windows on one side and the lighting is fantastic! There is one challenge to my space though. There is a permanent mail box structure in the middle of the space and people will need to get to that today and tomorrow.
I do love a challenge and it is due to my flexibility and set up that I was given the opportunity to take the space, lets say it was my in into this great show and I took it! My tables are arranged so the jewelry has great visibility and there is an access to the mailboxes and a few little squeezy spaces for me. It is actually a large space just wonky. Tomorrow I have a friend coming to help me and I am wondering how we will both fit in the space. As I said I love a challenge and I am creative and we will make it work.
The vendors at this show are amazing and I look forward to having a little time tomorrow to check them out. My brother-in-law Tim Burke will be there with his Blown Glass Creations. My friend Wendy Wren will be there with her pottery and I will be treating myself to at least one of her fine pieces! Also the Green Divas with their awesome soaps and skin care products will be another gift to me. I am looking forward to see Sarah McCarthy’s pottery which has made a beautiful evolution over the past year. And I am excited to be two booths away from Maureen Hearn and her amazing jewelry!
Here’s to a prosperous weekend! Cheers!
