Over the years I have done several outdoor shows and they are great venues. This week-end I did one I hadn’t done before and it should have been a great show. It is primarily an art show with may visual artists, potters and unique jewellers. However it rained all week-end and hardly anything was sold by anyone.
A favourite topic is always booth design; how best to display your products and how best to entice people into your booth. A lot depends on the amount of space you have. Here is a picture of my booth on a rainy weekend in June. For me it feels very crowded with the walls of the tent on. This was during a brief dry period so I could get a couple of things out front.
Although the sale wasn’t great I did get to meet lots of other artists and had time to chat with them. I have been inspired to knit myself a cool shawl. I am not sure how long it will take. I am not a knitter at all but when I get it done I will blog about it.
Here is a shot inside my booth.
I am going to post some more pictures over on the Felt and Fiber Forum if you want to give a long critique or detailed suggestions pop over and have a look.
