***PM me if interested**

All the craft shows in town seem to be kind of "old fashioned" with lots of lace and plastic canvas.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, but something a little edgier might be cool.   ;)Would anyone be interested in more of a Bizarre Bazaar kind of show, with more modern crafts offered.  I'm thinking cool jewelry, art, pottery, body products, funky sewn items and the like.  I know of an affordable venue, if anyone is interested, post in the thread or PM me. Cheesy

I would be interested in attending for sure!  Did you go to/sell at the "Odd Mall" event in Hudson back in May I think it was?  I did, and it sounds just like your idea, an edgier/younger craft show.

Unfortunately didn't end up going, although I wanted to. Cry  Maybe next year!

Oh yeah, I'd be interested. Sounds like a great venue for my hardware jewelry, and I'm in Parma Heights. We'd have to time it right and then work hard to get the word out...

I'm excited there has been some response!   Cheesy  I will try to work out some specifics and see if this can happen this fall, cost, etc.

I am waiting to get the go ahead from the city to rent out the rec center.  2 years ago a show was held there, but now they "need to think about it." Tongue 

I even negotiated some affordable advertising.  And started making items. Wink

That sounds great!!!! I'm trying to find some local shows to start signing up for. I got my first commissioned project - a blanket in Cleveland Indians colors. It's for a friend of mine. I told him it may take some time. It's going to be pretty big. Plus I have to keep making new stuff for my etsy shop. I need to set aside a certain amount of time to work on his blanket every day.

Let me know when you have info on the show. Do you have any tentative dates?

The local high school has a HUGE craft fair for Christmas, if I can get some details I'll let you know about that one. Cheesy

Hello Broadview Hts.!!! Wink

The place I want to rent out is the old rec center at Calvin Park, are you familiar with it?  I really think it could be cool if the city says ok.

I just pm'd her! Cheesy

The stupid city doesn't seem to want to give me an ok.  I facebooked our mayor last week and have heard nothing back.  So much for him wanting the city to be more hip. Tongue

*sigh* Well don't give up! Maybe you could find a church or other organization that has a hall you could rent for it... If all the sellers have Ohio transient seller licenses, then you should be okay on the tax end...

I'd say make what YOU like to make.   :DI'm making a little of everything:  stoneware pottery, soap, sewn items, maybe some jewelry.  We have almost 3 months, so ample time to get things made.

I just started a blog:

http://craftygoodnessatcalvin.blogspot.com/

to help promote the show. 

Here we can discuss ideas, pertinent info regarding advertising, that sort of thing.  As people send in the applications I'll do a post featuring their shop or items they will be bringing. 

Check it out and let me know what you think! Cheesy
