Craft Show Success on the Quiet Side of the Smokies

Ha! Note that the tire is not part of the booth!

I had the best time at the Townsend Arts & Crafts Show at Nawger Nob in Townsend, TN on June 23-24, 2012! It was a fantastic venue for my natural leaf art. The show was held in a wooded area with lots of huge old trees, among them some ancient tulip poplars, that had massive trunks. My site was in a perfect spot of shade, so while it was quite hot out, I remained very comfortable. Other exhibitors were not so lucky, as they were in bright, hot sun for the middle portions of the day. No rain to spoil things either.

There was more positive interest in my work, along with a consignment contact in the nearby Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Community. I’m very excited about that. On a side note, I have another consignment contact with whom I’ll be meeting in the next week or so. Yeah!

I was thrilled to sell several of my favorite pieces. I’d better get to work creating more!
