Hate buying stuff online because you can't really see what you're buying? I totally understand the need to touch, feel, and try on. That's part of the reason I choose to participate in craft shows and fairs plus I just loooove getting to meet customers in person. Here's a list of events I'll be vending at this Winter/Spring season in the DC area that I'd love for you to attend (trying on and touching the jewels is highly encouraged!):
Mt. Pleasant Temporium
When?: 24 days in February (exact dates still TBD)
Where?: Future location of Nana (3068 Mt. Pleasant St. NW)
What?: This temporary "pop-up" shop will feature handmade goods for sale from 30 local, independent crafters and artists, as well as special events (look out for details on my special trunk show where I'll be teaching how to make a simple pair of earrings!) I'll be there everyday working the cash register and taking care of the store so be sure to visit!
