Artist's Sale

Our downtown area is currently under major construction! The streets and sidewalks won't be done until next year, but once they are done it sure will be beautiful. Lots of brickwork, greenery, even a water feature! Downtown Battle Creek is where I work - it's where Kellogg's headquarters is located. So I remember waddling across the torn up street with my big pregnant belly from the parking garage to the building in the Spring. It's a little easier for me now, but still a mess. So unfortunately too, a park in the downtown area was where the Art Center would holds it's annual Art Fair in June. Even though Richard would have been about a month old at the time, I was still planning on doing the fair (maybe I was crazy). So I breathed a sigh of relief when instead, they decided to cancel it this year due to the construction and have a sale at the Art Center itself in August. It was promoted as a way for artist's to sell older stock at a discounted price so I decided to have my inventory of jewelry at 20% off. It was held this past Saturday in the parking lot. It was a beautiful morning as we setup our tent and tables. Even though I usually only do one fair a year, I have my packing and setup routine pretty down pat. My boys (Jon & Richard) then took off to go to a car show so my friend Kristen came to help me out at my booth. The first 2 hours of sales were great! I was very pleased. But then the rain started and radar showed lots of storms coming. Darn! We packed up and headed home. It was a great event though!

Picture of just one of the areas of disarray.

I didn't get around to every booth, but I did find this cute crayon roll that I couldn't resist for Richard. Check out her shop on Etsy! And I will say that a vintage peacock postcard was found too in a stack that Kristen bought!

So as a way to continue the sale, I am offering 20% off in my Etsy shop through the end of August! Coupon code is ARTSALE.
