What a fun day yesterday was! I haven’t been in an art market in over 2 years. I always love doing them, but life is always just so busy. This year, I decided to suck it up and sign up for stART on the Street. The Haberdash was going to be there too and I knew it would be awesome getting to hand out with friends.
Honestly, it was so great! Something about it brought back so many nostalgic feelings. I think its because bookmaking, crafts and artshows have been my love for so long, like before I was a mom, before I had this blog and before I ever got married. It was super heart warming to see it all sort of full circle. I was there selling all these books I was so proud of, sharing the day with Kev and Rowan and getting to meet a bunch of lovely readers. I don’t know if that makes sense to anyone, but something about it seemed very special for me.
We got to be neighbors with Amy and the Haberdash for the day, which meant lots of hang out time and lots of Canadian jokes from Adam. We even had friends come out from Albany to hang out and enjoy the art market. I am always super unprepared for markets like this, good thing Amy is an expert and had everything that I forgot. Thanks Amy!
Here are a few tips for you…
1. Bring LOTS AND LOTS OF CHANGE. You will always need more $1’s and $5’s than you think.
2. Remember a chair
3. Bring a little kit of tape, sharpie, paper, thumb tacks, twine, scissors. You never know.
Have you ever done an Art market before? Did you have so much fun?
