This weekend, I'll be at the Woodland Art Fair in Lexington, KY. I've been several times to this fair, but only as a shopper. It's a beautiful setting, in Woodland Park just off Woodland Ave, which is around Euclid and Main and in between Kentucky and Clay Avenues. I'm really excited, as I've heard nothing but good things about this show from other vendors. It's sponsored by the Lexington Art League, of which I'm a member, so I should know several of the other vendors. My friend Jamie Brumm and her husband Bill will be there and she makes some pretty neat jewelry herself out of anodized aluminum.
I'd like to get some jewelry made while I'm in the booth this weekend (working on pieces will sometimes garner more interest in the pieces that are already finished), but if I'm too busy selling and talking to get any jewelry made, I think I can live with that ;-) Festival sales this year have been down, thanks to a slow economy, but I'm hoping that it's coming to a close. Gas prices have started to drop and people are already thinking about the holidays. We'll see!
