Hello. I started this new thread as a space to throw out ideas for the craft fair we all seem so interested to have in Houston.
Please post any ideas or experiences you have regarding alternative craft fairs.
At any point during the planning, if something is decided (meaning: definite) I will post it on my domain in order to keep a running list of the plans (and so they won't get too lost in here). The page is - http://www.prettyinprint.net/craftfair.html
I'd like the first event (here's to hoping there will be more to follow) to be later this year (to allow plenty of time to plan/promote)... in the fall sometime of maybe specifically November if it is marketed as a good place to shop for holiday gifts. At first, that sounds like a while away, but when you think about how many things have to be done between now & then (and the fact that I'm sure we're all busy with school/work/families), I think it will be here in no time.
I have a few requests to get us going...
First - Anyone have any name ideas?
Second - Location ideas?
Third - Should we do all of this here on craftster? Do you think it will get lost in the mix? If we need a separate space, I can set up a discussion board on my domain so that we can have several different threads covering all the different aspects of organizing the fair. Think we need one?
Also - There is a craft fair to go along with the Southern Girls Convention being held in Houston in June. I've reserved a space for myself there, and will hopefully come away with a better idea of what we should/shouldn't do. Please let me (us) in on any craft fair secrets you may have!
