Since I am in complete show prepping mode, I thought I would share a little bit more about the festival/show I will be selling at this weekend.
The DIY Street Fair is a free three day art festival in Ferndale, Michigan which began in 2008 and has been running strong and gaining popularity since. Local business owners of The WAB and the Emory developed the idea of hosting a fair that catered to local artists and entrepreneurs while also showcasing local food and beverage offerings and local music.
I found out about the fair in 2010 and after attending I knew it was the perfect place for me to sell my goods. This will be my third year vending and I couldn't be more excited. The people running the show are awesome as are the other vendors and the people that attend. I just love the city of Ferndale and this festival really showcases the excellent community of this quint little town.
This year, you can find me in booth 78. The last two years I have been in the 100s row, so I've been hard at work devising a new layout that might work better in the location.
The first year was a total learning curve. It was my first show EVER and after show was over, I had a much better idea what would work better the following year. Placing the table across the entire back and leaving room to sit back there ate up a bunch of space and when your tent is only 10 X 10 every square foot matters.
