We're trying to get the hang of blogging, but we let other things get in the way. It's the beginning of our show season so we are both consumed with creating new pieces, updating wholesale line sheets, prepping for wholesale orders, and refreshing our show booth and displays. Our display tables, crates and jewelry displays taking a beating over any show season. Last year was a particularly busy and harsh weather season. We did about 12 shows in lots of rain, wind and extreme heat. Our first show last year, Kentucky Crafted went on despite mounds of snow. We can only hope that we don't have as many extremes as our last.
We LOVE our show season (typically March-October)! It's a lot of behind the scenes hard work loading, unloading and transporting everything from city to city.....but oh so worth it! We have fun demonstrating our processes and getting to meet and make new friends. It's even better when our families get to travel with us. James and I surely couldn't do what we do if we didn't have the support and assistance from them! What we do is definitely a family affair!? Thanks Lee, Jamie, Jakob, Joshua, and Jaxon!
Our first show this year is Kentucky Crafted: The Market in Lexington, Kentucky on March 5 and 6. March 4th is our wholesale day for retailers buying for their shops, galleries and boutiques. For those of you planning on coming on March 5th, there's a UK game on the other side of the wall from us! But have no fear, there is a special free parking lot and shuttle service the whole day to make your trip worry free. Check out Kentucky Crafted on the Kentucky Arts Council Website for all the details.
Kentucky Crafted is a wonderful display of our state's finest artists and craftsmen, musicians, and food producers. It's very kid friendly too! We hope you'll be able to drop by our booth #158 to say hi!
We'll do our best to keep you updated on new shows as we book them.
Have a great day!
