It's time for some craft shows!!

Well, it's that time of year again!  Time for some craft shows!

I have been accepted to 3 this year and I'm very excited!!  The first one is in October and is a new one for me.  It is taking place in Mississauga.  I'm a small town girl so when I hear Mississauga I think big time Toronto.  It's a one day show and it's going to be BIG!  2000-3000 visitors are expected!  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.

I am really hoping to improve on my booth display this year and make it easier for people to shop.  I also have a TON of burning ideas that I hope I can get done in time for the show.

The other two shows are in the Durham region and are ones I have done before.  They are both in December so that gives me a nice break to gather my stock and my wits after the big Toronto one.

If you are in the area I would be tickled if you'd shop by and say hello!

Here are the shows….

October 19, 2013  11am - 5pm
International Centre, Hall 6
6900 Airport Road, Mississauga

Admission: $5 per adult (children free!)
From now until Sept. 30 you can get 35% off your ticket when you purchase online and use code "septnews13"
Please mention my name (Maya Wade) when you purchase your etickets.  
Getting your tickets in advance means you miss the long line up to get in.  Trust me, it's a long line up!

Also, if you're one of the first 250 families through the door you will receive a swag bag with goodies from exhibitors at the show!

AND I've heard there is going to be a mega prize pack that will have a bunch of great items from some of the attending vendors.  When I hear more I will update here and on my Facebook page.

December 1, 2013  10am - 4:30pm
Kingsway College, Oshawa

Door prizes all day long!

Shop Hop!

I am a member of a great team on Etsy called "Promoting Creative Friends".  The Captain and team leaders work hard to provide quality promoting and marketing opportunities while adding some fun and the chance to make some great new friends.  

The blog for the PCF team has been very quiet for some time but just recently it has begun to revive itself with new posts and shop features.  Every month there will be a Shop Hop where sellers can submit their shop and then browse other wonderful creative spaces.  You don't need to have an Etsy shop, any online shop is welcome.

So hop on over and check it out.  You may just find your next "can't live without it" item or someone else might find something in your shop they must have!

And if you don't own a shop but love to browse hand made work, this is the place for you!
