Thanks for the info! I just signed up for the open air market and am waiting for an update on the PRFM!

For anyone interested in shows in  little rhody check out www.craftlandshow.com. to download an application. It is a consignment craft show that runs for 5 weeks in Nov. and December. You send/drop off you stuff , Craftland displays and sells it for you. Consignment arrangement is 60% of retail price goes to artist, 30% goes to cost of running show, and 10% goes to New Urban Arts, a non-profit providing studio space and mentoring for Providence Public High School Teens.  It is a great way to sell your stuff and support a great cause.

So I did the www.southendopenmarket.com this past Sunday. it is a super well organized ad high quality event! The market occurs every Sunday from 10-4 at 540 Harrsion Ave in Boston, Ma. There were about 40 vendors which included funky handmade items by other craftster ladies, a farmer's market, vintage retro flea market items, local restaurants, and home baked doggie treats. It was super hot this past Sunday and I was told that traffic was not as busy as usual. I talked to many of the other regular vendors who have participated in the market 6+ times. They said that they sell enough each Sunday to make it worth coming back weekend after weekend.    A 10x10 space is only $50.00.  I did not ask about booth sharing, but the organizers may be open to it as they are super friendly and want to provide a marketplace for crafty folk.  There is still space available for the markets that are running through the end of October. The young guy who started the market  is super nice and professional. He wants more artsy crafty folk to participate. The weekend of the 18th and 19th the market is open both Sat and Sun as it is the south end open studios www.useaboston.com. Thousands of people are expected to descend to that area and the open air market is smack dab in the middle. My sales were great and I really enjoyed meeting all of the other vendors and the organizers of the event!  There are not many opportunities for crafty folk to bring their items to a hip and happy marketplace, but this is definitely one of them so  spread the word!

I know I'm posting this same letter allover the place like crazy, but I'm just trying to get the word out and trying to make ANT! (Arts'n'Things) even bigger and better than our first two events...



ANT! (Arts'n'Things) is throwing its third event of 2004 at the Worcester Artist Group in beautiful Worcester, MA on Sunday, October 10 from Noon to 5pm.

ANT! is basically a big gathering of all kinds of creative types, showing and selling their creations in the spacious and oh-so-factory/galler-like confines of the WAG. Admission is FREE to the general public. Artists pay a measly $10 for a space at ANT!, provide their own tables, set-up, what-have-you and we've had great turn-outs for the first two ANT!(s)...

WE STILL HAVE ROOM if you want to participate.

PLEASE contact me at doug@dsquared.org and let me know you want IN on ANT!

Check out the ANT! website: http://www.dsquared.org/ant.html

Anyone else doing this or going to shop?  I signed up, because seriously $10? I only have to sell one thing and I make my money back...I'm nervous though because it's my first show where I am actually paying for space!

Is the ANT show public transportation accessible at all? I'd like to go just to see/buy stuff, but alas, I have no car.

well, you'd have to take a commuter rail train to worcester, then its still a couple of miles away.  there might be buses, but i'm not familiar with worcester public transportation.
