At the beginning of 2011, when Funnelcloud Studio was still in its infancy, I set a goal to sell at an art market at some point during the year. I ended up blowing that goal out of the water and was a vendor at four markets last year. The first few had me wondering if it was something I wanted to pursue (there were growing pains and a lot of lessons to be learned), but by the end of the year I had been bitten by the art market bug. I found that my shop could be successful at the right markets and that I could have a good time selling at them, too.
This year, I decided to double last year's schedule and I set a goal to sell at eight art markets in 2012.
The number of art markets my shop vends at is a bit out of my control. There is a lot of competition to get into them, so I just have to fill out the application, submit my best work, cross my fingers, and hope that my shop is accepted. Anyway, I'm delighted to announce that I just put art market #8 on the calendar! With four months left in the year, I haven't even begun to apply to holiday markets yet, so hopefully, my schedule will grow. And I've actually been accepted to a few others that I had to turn down in order to keep my schedule reasonable (and me from turning into a ball of stress!).
So here's #8:
November 3 - 2Hands Indie Craft Market (Severna Park, MD)
I'm really excited about this one since it is in an area I've never vended in before. So if you're in the Annapolis/Severna Park/Glen Burnie area, come on by and say hi.
And if you're in Virginia/DC, I've still got two local shows coming up in October - check 'em out on my Upcoming Shows page.
Thanks so much for the support, friends! xo
