Even though I have done a few shows before, I am continuing to learn about it. Some of the things I am learning and maybe some tips for customers/shoppers?
As a shopper... Know that you are welcome and it is exciting for us to share our heART with you. You don't have to like everything. Artists try to appeal to different tastes. Try to appreciate things even if you don't "get it" or at least just keep your negative thoughts... well... thoughts. I very luckily didn't experience this but a couple of my neighbors did. Vendors are people too ;)
As an artist... Also be gracious of other's art. Do NOT take pictures. Do NOT copy. I love to learn that I have inspired someone. It is a big part of what I do, as I am a teacher. However, take inspiration from other artists but MAKE YOUR OWN ART.
BODACIOUS BAZAAR November 14-16 in Hampton, VA. Another 3 day event that I just can't wait to attend.
