One Week and Counting...

As per my last post, my duckies are all in a row now.

The show is a week from Saturday and Sunday, and two wonderful Gal Pal's signed up to help me man (girl?) the booth. The only thing left to do is a dry run of packing the car. The trick is going to be fitting my 2'x6' grids into the sedan. Cross your fingers! When I had a 10'x10' booth setup and all the clothing to fill it, I needed to rent a 15 passenger van with all the seats removed to schlep the booth components and wardrobe boxes up North. This was hugely expensive. I can't imagine gassing up one of those behemoths now with gas prices so high! I'm thankful that my current inventory is lots of small items and the booth is a tabletop design. I no longer need that big truck.

I have several new pairs of earrings


Chalcedony, freshwater pearls, and Swarovski crystals


Lucite flowers, antiqued brass and copper findings, Czech fire polished crystals


Lucite flowers, Czech pressed glass leaves, Swarovski crystals


Swarovski crystal faceted teardrops, Czech fire polished crystals
~
new bracelets


unakite, carnelian, and Czech fire polished crystals


Flower jade, rose quartz, Rhodonite


seed bead spiral rope


freshwater pearls, seed beads, Swarovski crystal button


mother-of-pearl, sterling silver, red "mystery" beads

I've also got about 75 necklaces. That should be plenty for a seven hour show! All that's left now is for people to come and shop for charity. Cross your digits for a good turnout.

I'm loving your new designs Kate, I hope you have an amazing turnout.

I've been reading a bit about the work that goes into fairs and shows, and I don't know that it is something I'm cut out for. I'm doing First Friday next month, as an intro...but it may be my finale as well.

Best of luck!

Hello Kate,

Great designs and clever way to display them with illustrations.

all digits crossed (though I don't actually believe it's necessary - I am certain people will be drawn to your treasures. :)

in answer to your question, I have actually thought about doing woodcuts for ages ... I think it just might be time to simply go for it. :)

Fingers and toes crossed!
