Having Fun at the Weekend Show
Beautiful weather, though rather hot, a lovely location at One Way Antiques in King, great art, fun music, and wonderful crowds, but alas... not too many sales. Seems to be the state of shows these days. I made about 1/3 of what I made at the same show a year ago. Ah well. It was worth it just for the camaraderie and the inspiration of seeing the work of other artists. Here are some photos... hope you enjoy!
I shared my booth with my husband, and we set up next to the music stage. He displays most of his knives in cases, especially at outdoor shows, lest some small child come along and grab a knife and hurt him or herself. I try to have an earthy look at my booth to complement the style of jewelry that I do. So I use old Moxie crates, a moose anter, dried pinto beans, rocks (which I forgot to bring this time!!!), and other such things.
Here are a few shots of the location and other booths and sights there...
And here's a silly shot of me dancing to the blues of Big Ron Hunter with some old man who'd been dancing alone... and another good friend of mine who came to join in. Had a great time, but it seems I almost lost my skirt!
And finally, a couple shots of the band as we did our Sunday set.
So, same time next year, I suppose!
