I am considering doing one of the “Art Sprees” at the Thompson
Center, sponsored by the Illinois Artisan Shop in Chicago. Has
anyone done any of these shows? I was wondering how successful they
are. I need to get back into doing shows and this seems like a good
place to begin. I will be sending them new inventory soon so it may
help to increase my sales at the shop.
I will have the usual traveling expenses associated with most any
show, food and lodging and transportation to and from. It’s always
disappointing to come away from a show breaking even!
Noel, since you are in the area (I think!) maybe you know about this
program of “sprees” and the Artisan Shop in general. I used to have
jewelry there but life intervened and I quit sending work there for
awhile. I’ve never actually been there so would find any experience
you all have informative. Thanks in advance.
