Announcing the debut of The Traveling Handmade Bazaar trunk show to be held on Monday, May 21, 2012 at The Bean Coffee & Wine Cafe in Andover, MN from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Six artists will be selling handcrafted items, and there will be a wine and appetizer special offered during the show.
Please stop by and say hello and check out the great items made by some very talented Minnesotans (including me!). I’m excited for our first show and hope it’s just one of many to come.
If you’re asking “what is a trunk show?” you are not alone. Several people have asked me that question. A trunk show is a smaller, more intimate craft show featuring a handful of artists selling their creations. Rather than a larger craft show which gets hectic and your attention gets divided in too many directions (ever wanted to go back for something but couldn’t for the life of you remember where you saw that item?), a trunk show offers the opportunity to take a little more time to see everything each artist has for sale. You also have the chance to talk to the person who made the items. It’s a great time to inquire about custom orders (feel free to ask me about bridal party jewelry or creating jewelry in your favorite colors or styles!).
Please consider following our group on Facebook too – then you’ll be kept up-to-date with news of our upcoming shows and events. We’d love to hear your feedback and comments.
For further information, please visit the HandmadeMN blog – there’s a great list of the product categories available at this show and other information about the event.
Hope to see you on Monday!
