I'm relatively new to doing shows and am curious.  How do all of you evaluate whether or not a show is a 'good' show for you?   Some of the books I've looked at have said that you should get a…Continue

At long last I have a website!

Posted on January 28, 2013 at 12:55pm 12 Comments

Thank you all sooooooo much to everyone that helped me with figuring out what was a good website service to go with!!  I ended up going with Indiemade (although I'm sure FASO is good as well) and I'm really happy with that choice.  Their interface is so easy to use.

This has been on my 'to do' list for a couple of years now and the time was right for me to start working on getting it up.  I've been working on the site most of this last month and as of  Saturday is now finally ready to…


Back from Chesanning Show

Posted on November 28, 2011 at 12:44pm 1 Comment

Well, the show I had this last weekend in Chesanning went pretty well.  I know it's not the right type of show for me, yet I'm still happy with the result.  I think I'm going to give this show another year as each year I've done a little better.  Also, since I'm planning on getting set-up to accept credit/debit cards next year I'd like to see how that affects how well I do at that show.  My dad will also be giving it another year as he did quite well and does better every year.

This will be my third year doing this show.  I've been doing this show with my dad who does wood/antler and re-purposed art.  It's a much better show for my…
