So what does this have to do with the selling of one's craft? I think it might have something to do with making a connection with the customer. Its easiest of course with old friends and family. But whether it is at a small town family event or at a larger urban show...connecting directly with the customer...with someone who enjoys and values your work...is very satisfying. Its just a lot more fun when its done on friendly turf!
Congratulations to the Amherst Family Center on your 25th year in supporting families and handmade American crafts. I certainly enjoyed this year's event and hope to see you again next year!
