Cowtown Indie Bazaar

I love doing craft shows.
Every time I set up my space its different. New jewelry, new display pieces, new vibe.
I love meeting lots of new friends and seeing friends from shows past.

The visitors to the booths are so unique as well.
Some people love to talk to you. They will ooh and aah over every little story you tell them.
They love to hear the history or inspiration behind the jewelry I make.
They really get it.

Others just like to look and be left alone.
It takes all kinds and I love them all!

The days are usually long but they are filled with fun.

The last show I did was in in March in Fort Worth, Texas called Cowtown Indie Bazaar.
It was a perfect day!I love the way the booth looked on this day.
This is also the first time I had a whole 10X10 space to myself!
I usually share with my good friend Jen so is the mastermind behind Starving Artist Bazaar and Sighfoo.
My mom made the banner for me, isn't it great!?!
We added soft sheers and a new white screen.
To me it felt cozy and inviting.
I hope visitors felt the same way.

The new screen allowed for the hanging of more necklaces.
Necklaces just look so much more inviting when they are hung.

The table was, as usual, piled with all sorts of pretty things.
Lots of rings and hair clips and bracelets with earrings and necklaces hidden about.

I am in LOVE with my new vintage jewelry box displays.
Like you are shopping at someone's accessory table!

These cuties made their debut at the show. Filigree ring bases and I added astrological sign pieces to them.

We also had another little table with us that day.
My mannequin table.

So many pretty hair clips...sparkly and flowery!

aaahh, what a fun day it was.

I am looking forward to two more shows in April.
