We invite resident artists in the Attleboro area to apply for a vendor space in one of our featured “Art at the market” events. We welcome painters, photographers, cobblers, makers of metal cookware, hardware, service wares, woodworkers, textile designers, sculptors, potters, ceramicists, jewelry makers, candle makers, and other creative and functional wares.In preparation I signed up for Square and am working on some packaging with Michael and my friend John at Color Connection for printing. I've worked with both of them before on other projects and I find it more fun to work with people you like than strangers.
This expansion will promote the cultural arts of our area while attracting more people to the farmer’s market and Attleboro at large. We will also encourage vendors to demonstrate their skill to market visitors. This will be an opportunity to revive awareness of the historical trades and skills that were integral to the vitality of our region.
Money is not important but it definitely helps motivate. Plus without money how would I continue to create? I do use a lot of recycled and found materials but no one wants used earring hooks.
This is probably one of the scariest things I have done in awhile. Jimmy asked me why I was so scared. I replied "It's like having a lemonade stand and no one buys a cup." He's been assuring me that it will be successful and while I want to believe him, he has no real way of knowing. With 11 days left, I'm spending almost all of my free time working on items to sell and my display setup. I will be utilizing the dining room to set up everything ahead of time. I have plenty of ideas, it's just a matter of whether or not it works. Wish me luck and remember Cash is King since credit cards will incur a 2.75% convenience charge.
