Need help deciding what shows to do on East Coast

Posted on May 19, 2010 at 1:09pm 3 Comments

Ok all you hand made artists. I am kind of new on here, and definatly new on the East Coast. Live in NC and willing to travel to do shows about a 400 mile radius.

Back in Arizona I knew the shows to do on the West Coast. Here I am lost. I do all hand made jewelry and home decor out of fossil and stone, both the lapidary and silversmithing. Prices range from 55 to 450. Looking for shows for the summer and will work Fla in the winter. Small shows or large, but prefer fine art/fine craft…
