I have been dealing with tooth pain and dentists lately, which has prevented me from following my regular schedule and writing on my blogs, but things seem to be getting better now, and boy, am I grateful for that!
Not only because tooth pain is one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced (yes, much worse than childbirth), but also because I need to get all my jewelry and booth display ready for the Art in Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival this coming Saturday, September 18th, on Main Street in Weaverville, NC.
I like to look at my booth setting after every show and see if there is anything that can be improved, both in terms of how to display things as well as how to make it more efficient in terms of space, while keeping it practical and easier to transport, if at all possible. I usually have a booth partner, and that is a wonderful thing to have, but I still want to make things easier for both and to be able to manage on my own for shows I will be doing alone. Since I will be sharing the booth at the Art in Autumn Festival, space is of the essence, so this time I will be adding a couple gridwall panels to add vertical space to my side of the booth. I also made the papier mâché display on the photo shown here as a central piece (and hopefully attention drawer), so I want to make room for all this new stuff on the table without crowding it too much.
Some of the displays will now go on the vertical panels, leaving plenty of room for my other jewelry on the table, including fine silver pendants, sterling silver necklaces, and the new bronze jewelry designs (one is shown here as an example, with a handmade sandalwood necklace). I will be sure to post some new photos of the booth to show you what it looks like once it’s all set up.
You can view some of the new fine silver and bronze jewelry designs I already uploaded to the my Handmade Jewelry Shop, but if you happen to be in the area, come visit my booth even just to say hi, while you enjoy the changing colors of Fall in the mountains! The show goes from 10 to 5. Hope to see you there!
