Getting ready for ACC Baltimore

My first big show is coming up next month and I have been working in all the details to show my work the best I can in my booth.

Since I got the news I was going to be able to go to the American Craft Council show, I have been planning how will I do that. I have to travel to Baltimore and my displays will have to be more practical for me to be able to transport all of them to the show.

As some of you may know, doing a show like this is not cheap and I have to be very creative to change my displays with a very conservative budget.

I was able to buy some artist's boards in different sizes and painted them with blackboard paint. I chose blackboard paint because this will give me the opportunity to be able to write the title of the piece (in some pieces) and the price (this will help in not having to use a price tag.)

Presentation is very important for any show and since I do not have a big budget to do all I wish I can, I had to prioritized and focus on displays and marketing material (business cards and postcards.)

I am sure this will be a learning experience because I am still trying to understand all the aspects of doing a show as big as this one,but meanwhile I am having a great time.

For now I am working in what I know best, my jewelry!!

I will keep you informed!
