Too Much Travel, Too Little Time for Shows

by katie on September 27, 2015

As you’ve noticed, I’m sure, my local shows have trickled down to next to none. While I still do the occasional Trinidad Market during the summer, and I take my jewelry to Mexico each year, we’ve just been doing way too much travel to make the other fairs worth my time and effort.

I love meeting my customers, and so I really miss that part of it, but honestly, it takes a lot to set up and take down at the shows, and so now I simply sell through Etsy.  I hope you’ll come visit me at my shop

Some Upcoming Shows

by katie on September 19, 2012

Well, I ended up sharing part of the North Coast Metal Arts Guild booth at the North Country Fair last weekend. It was an interesting weekend!

Loved the sunshine on Sunday…we’ve had so little this year!

Saturday, September 22, 2012 I will be sharing a booth with the NCMAG again – this time in Henderson Center, from 9am to 3pm

On Saturday, September 29 (my Birthday!!) I will be at the Fieldbrook Winery – always a wonderful venue. This time I’ll be sharing a booth with my friend Linda of Magnetic Attraction.

In December I expect to be in Arcata, and also to have my metal-related items in the NCMAG booth at Humarts in Eureka.

Come by and visit!! See the new things I’ll be showing.

54th Annual Trinidad Fish Festival

June 19, 2011

Today was a very beautiful day in Trinidad.. As happens on days when the sun shows up, it was rather windy, but in many ways that made it very nice. Except of course, that it made the booths very precarious, and I found myself spending as much time keeping my neighbor’s booth from crashing into […]
