Ravenswood ArtWalk, the third

September was a whirlwind of weekend fairs and pop-up applications. The Ravenswood ArtWalk was moved to mid-September as well, which proved to be a great idea weather wise. I had secured an indoor spot, which meant that the weather was lovely on both days. Had I been outside, the outcome would have been different, with […]

Spam and grasshopper friends

It was a scorching day on Saturday, but light breezes and the occasional cloud blocking the sun made the day lovely for an art fair. It was early when I set out to bring my wares to Bloomingdale. As always, Platt Hill Nursery has a plethora of fun and quirky garden accessories to peruse. The […]

Pop-up Fun at Geneva’s Swedish Days

Summer is in full swing and life has been picking up with outdoor activities for leisure and for selling. My last Saturday in June was spent in Geneva for a Swedish Days pop-up. It was the first nice day after almost a week of Thunderstorms, so foot traffic was heavy even as I started setting […]

A Swedish Days pop-up in Geneva

Summer has arrived which for me means one pop-up a month. This coming Saturday I will be in Geneva, Illinois with my wares. I love visiting this wonderful town that is abundant with inspiring and delicious small businesses. You will find me at Peaceful Parlour, the eco-chic boutique where you can find all sorts of […]

EXPOSURE

Thursday was a gorgeous day to spend at Navy Pier.  The overcast skies had made way for sunshine and the Chicago skyline was picture perfect. I was a bit torn about having to spend the afternoon inside setting up for the big event, but happy so many people were celebrating a tentative Spring on the […]

Bucktown Holiday ArtShow

I’m busy preparing for the Bucktown Holiday Fair this coming weekend. The fun begins at noon and goes until 5 p.m. December 13 and 14. More than 100 artists will exhibit and I enjoyed the creativity last year’s show featured. There is a silent auction, a raffle, and delicious food and drink will be offered. […]

Hippity Hopping

I recently visited Norridge for a Trunk Show that was a lot of fun. The sign makes me think of The Wedding Singer. It was my biggest display table yet, so I had to take two shots to get it all in. Fellow Network of Entrepreneurial Women member Marianne was there with Melaleuca and her […]

A bit raw about RAW

When every day is an adventure, it is hard to get your bearings. After much anticipation, repricing and retagging, the Ravenswood Art Walk wasn’t quite what I had hoped it would be.   I brought in the borrowed table and old shelving unit the night before to keep nerves and muscle strength preserved. The next […]

Custer’s Last Stand take-away: mixed emotions

After all the anticipation and preparation, my feelings about the “success” of Custer’s Last Stand as a vendor are mixed. It was a great challenge for me, and also a fear-buster, but financially it did not live up to its expectations. Friday night set-up I quipped a few weeks ago about how reading about manning […]
