I had such a great time meeting everyone who came out to the Anderson Art Center's first annual Artisan Market. I was excited to be among the first group of talented artists and makers to set up in the upstairs gallery for the event.
We set up on November 29th and 30th, and the Anderson Chamber of Commerce had a fantastic "Sip-n-Shop" event on the night of the 29th.
Here's some of my favorite artisans I met at the event:
On my right side, this talented jewelry maker creates pendants with hymnals. I loved talking with her about how to be successful on Etsy and online.
Jamie's soaps and candles are made with high-quality ingredients and smell so good!
Pretty much every coffee drinker on my Christmas list is getting a bag of Rick's super-fresh coffee!
Jewelry by Linda Pratt. Here's my friend Betsy modeling one of Linda's works!
Pottery by Emily Freelin - I love her earthy and pretty style.
There were so many talented artists at the arts center. I got almost all my Christmas shopping done while I was there! Were you there? If you were a vendor there, reach out so I can add you to this list!
Since I want to focus on creating beautiful art, I’ll let someone else handle the manufacturing, shipping, and delivery. I’ll sell templates, downloads, and of course, my original art on my own site. I’ll still work with a few trusted partners to create things like canvas art and cell phone cases to sell on my own site, but my plan is to shift a lot of the products to places like Redbubble and Zazzle so my international customers can have a better experience with my art.
