After 5 months of planning and preparations, I can say I am almost ready for my first “out of the Robin’s Nest and on my own” craft fair event. Almost because the last glaze kiln is firing and won’t be cool until tomorrow….almost because I am still working on pricing and signs and hang tags and….. (experienced vendors out there–any words of advice? I still have time to heed wise words and act accordingly!)
After setting up a test drive of the fair display in my back yard, I was able to consolidate and simplify my pottery offerings. Even though I have many one of a kind items highlighting my favorite surface techniques, this was not the time to show it. What the display does highlight is all the textures my garden has offered and has then been transferred to my clay surface; oh, how a simple leaf did intrigue and did inspire me!
Unique Boutique Artisans Fair is at the Easton’s Beach Rotunda in Newport on Saturday and Sunday, November 8 and 9, from 10 to 4 daily. I’m looking forward to a fun weekend and to seeing the great crafts of my fellow vendors.
