Ok, so I know I’ve been MIA for awhile now, but I’ve had something big in the works. No…seriously…huge! At least to me. This has been a tough secret to keep from you, but I didn’t want to say anything lest I jinx myself. Anywho, everything’s public now so it’s safe to share the news with you! I’m planning my first craft show! Yes! I mean, I’ve been in many craft shows to sell my jewelry…well, if you count all the craft shows my dad took me to when I was a kid, then I guess I’ve been to craft shows all my life, but details…details.
Ok, so for the show details…I’ve been wanting to do a craft show in the Charlotte, NC area for awhile now, but I wanted to find a good charity to work with so the event would benefit a good cause…win-win, you know? I’m super-excited to tell you that I’ve teamed up with the Charlotte Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to plan a craft show to benefit the walk…how cool is that? It’s called Pink at the Plaza and it will be Saturday, May 17th from 10am – 3pm in Charlotte, NC near the beautiful SouthPark and Cotswald areas of town. It’s going to be an awesome outdoor show and so much fun!
Anywho, I’ve spent many, many, many hours over the last couple weeks creating the web site (http://www.pinkattheplaza.com) for the event, as well as creating the Vendor Application and working on other details. The set-up work is done, so now I just need to get the word out.
I think this is going to be an amazing event benefiting a great cause, so if any of you lovely crafters & artisans would like to set up a booth to sell your handmade beauties, please consider applying for this most awesome event. You can find information on being a vendor here: http://www.pinkattheplaza.com/Vendors.asp

Wish me luck! This is the first craft show I’ve helped plan! 🙂 I think it’s going to be really great, though. We’ve got lots of ideas to promote the heck out of the show including working with local newspapers, magazines, and radio stations, putting up flyers all around town and spreading the news of the show through lots of good word of mouth. 🙂
