Tomorrow is the start of the spring craft show season for me. I am so glad I enjoy doing them.
I spend all winter making things for the spring shows and my Etsy shop. The first show of the season is a good one for getting feedback on what I have been doing over the winter to see what is working and what is not. It is also a good time to promote my shop.
Another good thing about the early shows is they are more relaxed and it's a good time to network with other crafters about upcoming shows and meet local promoters looking for vendors for fall shows. I am being a lot more choosy about the shows I do now; I use to do any show that asked when I first started out. I do mostly juried handcrafts only shows; there are less of them but I do better at them.
So I need to go to sleep now so I will be bright and cheerful for the morning.
