This past weekend I traveled to the SE corner of SoDak for the 2015 Sidewalk Arts Festival in Downtown Sioux Falls.
Since it was my first art festival as a vendor, I’ve been calling it my ‘Soft Opening.’
Next week I travel to Custer State Park for the annual Buffalo Roundup & Arts Festival. I’ve been busy working on a few tweaks for the booth to better the flow and viewing of my photography.
I’ve had a booth at a few craft shows in years past but haven’t had near the amount as is currently in my gallery. I’ve also never had the steady stream of people stop to see my work before, either. It was great! I met lots of wonderful people!
My grandparents, who reside in Florida, were able to attend. It meant a lot to me to have the support of my family there, especially from those who live so far away. My sister-in-law and three of her girls popped in to see me, as well.
