I set up my booth at the Tinley Park Recreation Center Craft Fair last weekend. It was my first time selling there and I wasn't sure what to expect from them.
As soon as I walked in, I noticed that there were a LOT of other jewelry crafters there.
At first, I thought they had put us all together in one room ( we were spread out into six or seven smaller rooms), but then word trickled in from the other rooms that they had just as many jewelry folk set up in there as well.
Tinley obviously did not limit the types of crafts who signed up.
Regardless, I did pretty well and they show was very fun to do. I think I was one of the only ones there who did copper wirework and I had lots of customers tell me that my jewelry was unique.
That's what I wanted to hear! :)
Sold a lot of copper rings and had requests for sterling silver. So the other day, I ordered 30 feet of silver wire and have a lot of projects planned for it.
