I am leaving tomorrow to visit the American Craft Council show in Baltimore. There are 700 exhibiting artists from all over the country. The first three days are wholesale, and the last three days are retail. I can't remember when I have seen a wholesale CRAFT show. It will be interesting to see the difference between how the artists display for one or the other, and perhaps there will not be much change between the two types of sales. I will hope to see some inspiring booth designs. However, at this type of indoor show, I am sure that some of these artists will spend days building their booth. This "high design, high time" kind of booth can't be done at an outdoor show, at least not by me!
I am hoping to streamline my booth this year, but I say that every year. It is right up there with: " I will be more organized this year," and " I will be more relaxed this year," and I will remember to charge for shipping this year"...oops, I do have to charge for shipping this year!!!!
I hope I remember.
