Two weeks ago I participated in the annual Bucktown Arts Fest here in Chicago. The weather was less than ideal, with a torrential downpour on Saturday and intense heat and humidity on Sunday. But sales were pretty good and it was easily my best show to date. My only complaint, other than feeling sweaty and gross the entire time, was that as a vendor I didn’t get a chance to shop! There were 200 vendors, plus food, live bands, and kids activities. All the booths were 10 x 10 which is a fairly big space, especially when you are selling small items like jewelry. The following are pictures of my booth. This time I tried out a new display for both my earrings and my rings. I was pretty happy with how things looked. If I do another show where I have a tent, I will probably bring fabric to hang on the walls where I display things vertically. A white vinyl tent does not make for a very pretty background.
