Last weekend I was in Richmond, doing a show in an area I've never sold in before. This can be daunting, because there are no repeat customers to sell to -- I'm a totally new face to everyone. There was also a fair amount of jewelry at this show, and depending upon which door you went into, I was either the first booth you saw or the LAST booth you saw. Add to that sleet and snow (!) on Friday and rain all day Saturday and Sunday, it should have been a disaster -- but it wasn't. Spring shows are always iffy, because there's no holiday to buy for, really, and being new, I didn't expect much, and was prepared for that. But I was pleasantly surprised.
Next weekend, March 27-29, you'll find me at the Dulles Expo Center doing yet another craft show. And this year, the Sunday happens to be
So show up and see it in person, or wait to see a blog post on it in April!
You'll also get to see a LOT of new work, including my own clasps:
And some whimsical, summery bracelets
And then once I'm home, I'll start putting all the new spring and summer jewelry on the web site. There is so much -- I've been enjoying myself!
Now, if I can just get my migraines to go away (two this month? Really? I needed that?) I'll be able to smile while wearing that birthday crown....
