Well, 2019 was a busy year for various markets and shows! I was so excited to participate in the shows below for 2019 and am looking forward to more shows for 2020. I will add more to the list as the year progresses. I get asked a lot about how much work is it to do Art/Craft Market Shows, and yes, while it is a lot of work, I really love it! How often do you get to talk to people about something you love to do and are so passionate about? It's wonderful to have people stop by and ask questions about the jewelry or how it's made. People are always so amazed when I say "I make my own beads". I'm also very fortunate in that I have a husband who is super supportive, helps with creating my display as well as setting up and taking down. You can usually find him chatting to people as they are walking by, inviting them to get a closer look. So, if you get a chance, drop by and say hello at any one of the shows I'll be in this year. It would be great to see you and show you what I love doing!
I'm busy applying to various shows for 2020 and will update this as shows are confirmed. Check back soon!
