August & September Craft Shows

Ok so I have been asked about upcoming craft shows that I will be participating in and selling my jewelry so I am going to list all shows here. Some of them are not definite as I will have to submit an application. But once I find out that I am for sure going to be participating, I will update this blog post. But go ahead and mark your calendars as I really don't see any issues with getting accepted to them all!! :-)

I have already been accepted to this show so I will definitely be there!!

DAS is one of 50 animal shelters in the country to qualify for this year's challenge to compete for $300,000 in various grants and the only shelter in Alabama and Tennessee! In order to qualify, they will need to adopt or return to owner 300 more dogs and cats than they did last year. They are having a kick-off party to showcase some wonderful animals. Local businesses, vendors, clubs, and organizations will set up information booths around the shelter to draw in people to see the dogs and cats. There will also be live entertainment, activities, concessions, DJ Jammin Jeff, Decatur Police Department K9 Unit, a 40 foot Adventure Course Bounce House, and lots of giveaways!!

Participation in Upcoming Arts and Crafts Shows

Etsy is a wonderful online source for buying and selling handmade goods, in addition to being a great source for networking with others through teams and forums.  But for some people, especially those just starting out and trying to get their business recognized and known in a massive network of millions of talented artisans, there must be other ways to promote and sell their items.  Luckily, I found a local team of crafters on Etsy, NA Crafters, who live in or near Huntsville, AL.  Through this team, I have learned of several arts and crafts shows that are going on locally in the area.  And, of course, I'm all about taking part in as many shows as I can participate in.

The first one coming up is Sidewalk Arts Stroll, in historic downtown Huntsville.  It's a huge marketplace full of a variety of artists/crafters selling their "stuff"!!  There will also be a variety of musicians performing, including jazz, gospel, and even improv.  In addition to arts and crafts, there will be vendors selling home-baked goods, locally grown produce, antiques, etc... something for everyone!!  Get your family out and come see us... it is sure to be a lot of fun!!  You can read more about this event at the following link...

This will be my first craft show I will be participating in, so I am a little nervous, but very excited!  I just hope it doesn't get rained out, as they don't have a rain date scheduled.  I will be sharing a booth with my friend and fellow NA Crafters team member/captain, Jessica Moon.  She also sells jewelry... unique charm bracelets and necklaces and also some really cool sports team jewelry!  Check out her Etsy shop here...

Our team, NA (North Alabama) Crafters, has our own website.  Check it out here...

The next craft show I will be participating in this month is going to be Artisans Cove, in the Hampton Cove area.  It's scheduled for July 30 from 1-5 pm. Several NA Crafters team members will be participating by selling their arts and crafts, including myself!  :-)  When I get more details on this event, I will add them here...

Please come by and see all our handmade treasures!!  I'm sure it will be fun for all, so bring the family!!  :-)
