First Art Show of the Season

On Saturday, I will be peddling my wares at May Fest in Sterling, Illinois. Main Street May Fest is a celebration of spring flowers, the garden and Mother's day. There will be flowers, garden art, food, music, and family activities. I will be selling original works, giclee prints and handmade cards.

Last Sunday, I did at test run of setting up my booth. This is the first time I've done an outdoor show, so I wanted practice my set up before the event. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I think I'm ready for Saturday.

One of the only things I purchased for the tent was the cute little banner, made by fellow Etsyian Amanda of Funkyshique. She made me the most adorable custom pennant bunting with my name. (I'll have to take a better picture of the bunting at the show.) Amanda was nothing but a pleasure to work with. The sharp burlap banner was made, sent and on my door step in just about one weeks time! Patronize her fab shop!!!

May Fest happens from 10 AM to 2PM on Saturday, May 8th at 4th and Light Streets, in the heart of downtown Sterling. Check out the map below for further directions. Hope to see you there!

Ciao! Ciao!
