I’m happy to announce that Bhuey Designs will have a table at this year’s Craft Boutique & Vendor Fair at the Colerain Township Senior & Community Center! Last year’s show was my very first craft fair, and it was such a positive experience. The Bhuey Designs team (hi Mom!!) have had many successful shows since, and I’m so excited to be back at the Colerain Craft Boutique with our new and updated line of jewelry and accessories.
I’ll have my usual spread of sparkly Swarovski crystal jewelry, plus my popular book marks, and some very special holiday jewelry.
The show is on December 2, and runs from 9-3. It’s held at the Colerain Township Senior & Community Center, at 4300 Springdale Road.
I am super excited about the next two months. I’ve got three (maybe four!) shows lined up for the holiday season. First, the Colerain Boosters Craft Show! I’m really looking forward to this one. It’s such an established, and big, show that I’m also a little nervous. But it’s going to be great!
Next up is the Holiday Hop and Shop which benefits the Weschester Cooperative Nursery School. My nephews attend this preschool, and I’m so happy to be supporting them and their school. The show is on November 11 from 2-4. More details to come soon!
Then comes December with the possibility of two more shows! My reservations are not yet confirmed, so I can’t share details yet, but I will soon.
It’s less than a week until the Cincinnati Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show at the Oasis Conference Center in Loveland. I’m pretty darn exited for this one. I have a new display, and tons of new items to share based on my favorite works of literature. Please come say hello!
Admission is $3, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Dragonfly Foundation. Kids under 12 are free.
The Dragonfly Foundation is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides support to young cancer patients and their families. Through gifts, social events, and community building, The Dragonfly Foundation helps young (0-30) cancer and bone marrow transplant patients find strength.
A wonderful art and craft show that benefits a wonderful cause. What could be better?
Oh my. January is over already. Things have been *quite* busy around here. Homeschool is rolling along, and we’ve managed to avoid a January slump. I think the fact that we’ve had some crazy warm days has helped. Even though Evy and I have a hard time fully enjoying warm days in winter…we know too much.
And then of course, there have been the snow storms that I have popped up between the warm days.
February promises to be another busy, busy month. There are the usual commitments, plus swim meets and….drum roll…another jewelry show to prepare for! I’ve been hard at work creating more lovely pieces for my favorite heroines. Here’s a sneak peek.
More information to come soon! Until then, happy crafting/schooling/living to all!
My table at the craft fair was a success! I figured out how to use the point of sale card reader. People *did* buy things, despite my fears that the would not. And best of all, I had fun! A huge thank you to my family, especially my mom, who came to visit or stay at my table with me.
I’m putting more items up in the shop today. Come take a look! Last day to ship for Christmas is December 17!
A few months ago, I spied a flyer at my local YMCA. A craft show was coming up, and the organizers were calling for crafters and vendors to sell their wares. My interest was piqued.
I had recently relaunched my Etsy shop and was looking to expand my business. That sounds almost ridiculously formal and preplanned. Basically, I saw the flyer, remembered that I had always wanted to try a craft fair, and sent an email asking for more information.
Fast forward a few months. My place is reserved. I’ve purchased the necessary vendor-like tablecloth (with full skirt, thank you) and gift bags. I’ve gathered my point of sale gadget, my cash box, and my display forms. I’ve stocked over 40 items worth of inventory. I am ready.
Actually, I’m terrified. I’m excited, and terrified. What if I don’t sell anything? Or worse, what if I do??
I have several more weeks to ponder these worrisome thoughts. In the meantime, I’ll just continue to tell my six mind to chill. It’s going to be fun…right?
