Hope you all have had a great week. I have some very exciting news! I am going to be participating inthe Retreat Vintage Market, on Camano Island, Washington, on June 25th! I just found out about the market the other day, and emailed the woman who hosts the show, along with her husband, on their farm. I had hoped to book a spot for their upcoming September show. Imagine my surprise when she promptly emailed me back, saying that a vendor had cancelled for the June show, and she had one spot available! I about fainted! I had sent her the link to my Etsy shop, so that she could get an idea of the type of work that I do. Well, she liked my work, and said that they would be happy to have me as part of their show! I figured that was an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up! Camano Island is just right across the Puget Sound, and it is what we see when we look out our windows!
So, I am super excited, and super nervous, too! I've done shows in the past, but nothing of this caliber! So, my mind is just spinning with ideas, and things that I need to do and figure out! I feel honored that as a new kid in town, they would like me to come aboard! The main thing that I need to figure out is creative display and merchandising of my goods! That to me seems the most intimidating!
So, if any of you ladies have any suggestions, or have participated in shows before and could give me some tips, I would greatly appreciate it! For the next several weeks I may not be on here quite as much, as I will be a busy bee preparing for the show. I've had trouble leaving comments on some of your blogs these past few days (I sure wish that Blogger would get things ironed out!). So do know that I have been visiting, but may not get a chance to visit as often as I'd like for the next three weeks!
You can read a bit about the show here. Also, if you happen to be in the area, and plan on attending the show, I would love for you to stop in and visit me and my Shabby Chateau! Now I've got to hustle and get back to my painting and glittering!
Have a great weekend!
