It was an invite to participate in the Holiday Small Art Market at the Studio Door down in San Diego. I was invited because I had a piece (The Tenacious Tentacle Cuff) in one of their shows earlier in the year.
I have not participated in many craft shows or markets for several reasons - Having to make a lot of inventory, Owning the tables, drapes, display cases and stands, even the shelter can add a lot of cost let alone the time and entry fee expenses.
I first thought I would not participate even though this was in their gallery, as I really didn't have time to make a lot of things to sell but upon further reading, the participants are limited to 3 items and they must be priced at under $500.
I can do that.
As a matter of fact, I had just finished those Red Oxide Dishes and I have one that is unclaimed (2 were presents) and then last weekend I made another dish. Yeah, I could just have 2 pieces in the show, but I am free this weekend, so I am going to make something else tomorrow.
Here are the details so you can go and possibly buy something - it does not have to one (or all) of my items.
