You may be able to help your local hospital- My daughter in law at our local hosp. is looking for any masks or latex gloves. They are in desperate need of masks. I only have a few n-95 slightly used for my studio work, which I'm handing over, they don't care if I've used them.I'm also going to try to create a hand sewn mask for them to wear over top of whatever mask they have, to protect it. I was told all protocol is out the window so any mask they are happy to have.I know some of you were…See More

Three CT Shows in 3 years - Short Report

Posted on August 30, 2017 at 11:12am 0 Comments

Please feel free to comment or make any opinions, thank you.

Dates, may not be exact, just posting from memory.

Three small shows along the CT coast, all in small scenic pleasant towns. Easy to do. 

1. 2015 -Guildford CT, Craft Expo, mid July. Set up easy Fri morning for me. Grassy center of town green area. Show Hours were easy- Fri from 3-8 pm or something like that. Sat and Sun, no long hours. Tear down easy.

Fee for customers. Quality was good, booth fee…

Just a quick post with a little info on two shows.

Anyone, please feel free to add or comment.

Mt. Gretna Art Show, Mt. Gretna, PA

Jenifer VonStein posted a bit back on Mt. Gretna Art Show.

Thought I would add. I have done this show about 7-8 times over the past 10 years.

This show is a two day mid August. Situated in scenic Mt. Gretna, PA.

Wonderful setting.  Trees, grass, decent food and background music.

Apps are on Zapp :…

Reston VA Show, a short report

Posted on May 19, 2015 at 9:27am 22 Comments

Two things:

1. Beautiful show, great work, great presentation, great food, great looking crowd,

in a sophisticated area (DC). Perfect. Show committee did a wonderful job here. Everything was great.

2. Sales. Not. 

The customers that I had all told me the same thing---they WALKED from their condo to the show!

This show was too good to not be visited by people from the greater DC area- where were they?

 For a $500 booth fee, $50 jury…

Manayunk Art Show 2013

Posted on June 24, 2013 at 9:00am 38 Comments

Here are a few thoughts on the show, while they are fresh in my mind:

Manayunk, June 22, 23, 2013.

 

Large street show, variety of work, good quality and some ok work.

Nice area, nice atmosphere.

Interspersed in between booths- commercial booths- 5 Hour Energy, Geiceo, etc.

Also gave out tons of free yogurt near me- tons, so people were carrying entire BOXES of cold yougurt, hands full, and I would say no longer shopping as they just received some…

Thank God for you.   I thought that I was strictly alone regarding my comments.  As old as I am I am still stunned that some people (very, very few) are watching The Ed show!  I am open to all opinions within reason and listen to different discussions but I do not tolerate stupidity-and that is what we have so much of.  I am honored to be your friend and please keep in touch.

Nate
