On November 10th, I had the privilege of becoming a part of the Greensboro artists’ community. I applied and was selected (you can’t just pay and participate, it is juried acceptance only) to participate and sell my work at the Greensboro Curb Farmers’ Market Made4Market Holiday event.
The shoppers started lining up even before the doors opened which was such an encouraging sign for me as I am sure it was for other artisans. The Early Bird shoppers could start shopping at 10:00 am. for a small fee of $5. Admission after 11:00 a.m. and until 4:00 p.m. was free for all. I had a great location right across from the door and even though that made it cooler in the morning, as more people came in and the place got busy, it was nice and comfortable. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the crammed spaces between the tables. As in, the people with their backs to me with their display table on the other side and I barely had enough space. This cramming of course means more room for shoppers to move in the aisles which is of course a good thing. I didn’t mind the inconvenience, just wish it was roomier.
I got a great response from the visitors. I feel so grateful to be accepted into this community and meet the wonderful people here who are so incredibly supportive and encouraging of my work. I had many a wonderful conversations with those who visited my booth, whether they bought something or not. Many people complimented my work, my patience, and the variety of items I had and I felt truly humbled. Thank you to all who attended the event and helped support local artisans and artists
Here are some images from my booth.
