All of the shows I've done so far have been wonderful. I've had such a good time at each of them. My helpers have always been spectacular, the shopping is great, and meeting all the show patrons is such a rewarding experience.
When it comes to picking shows to attend/apply to, it's not always easy. It's even more difficult when two great shows are happening on the same dates. This happens more and more the closer to Christmas you get. The holiday shows typically start in late October and run through December. I'm already working on Christmas, Hanukkah, and Winter related items!
I do know I'm very much looking forward to doing the Northern Virginia Christmas Market again in November. The show organizers and other venders were a joy to spend the weekend with, and the Expo is inches away from Willard's BBQ. Best BBQ in the area! It's great fuel to get through the weekend.
I'll be sending a handful more applications out this week so I can hopefuly have 1-2 shows per month. Be sure to check out my Upcoming Events page to see where I'll be. I will be updating the page as I get confirmations from the shows, so you'll have lots of opportunites to find me and shop in person. The next show is McLean Day on May 18th ... hope to see you there!
