Crafts Fair,Bazaars or jewelry exhibitions....
Call it whatever you want,
but it's one intimidating event.
Especially for the vendors. So much
forethought, work, and time
to put forth for a few days,
or maybe even hours.
Toronto bead society spring fair(May 26-27th) is going to be my Third Fair since i started my to sell my jewelry online.
Although many jewelry artist have told me in the past that they do not find these fairs useful i have the most fun in them
Not Only do I get to do what i love the most (make jewelry ) but i get to meet the most wonderful people at these places:Buyers,Art and craft lovers and Other wonderful artists.
Meeting so many other people trying to follow their dreams inspires me and boosts my confidence.
