The Lowcountry Artist Market RECAP!

It was a hot and balmy June day here in Charleston this past Saturday. The sun was out, the crowds were ready and the Piccolo Spoleto festivities were in full swing.

The Lowcountry Artist Market was a real hit! The patrons started pouring in at 10:00 even though the event didn't officially begin until 10:30. The Artist Market was hosted at The Music Farm, downtown Charleston, which is a small music venue where Charlestonians like myself can see their favorite bands preform, such as Modest Mouse and Ingrid Michaelson.

I was so pleased with the outcome of the day. I had a total of
30 jewelry sales
and was even asked to do a trunk show for a bridal shower. I can't even count the number of business cards that were taken---I was constantly refilling them. I even managed to get a full page of email addresses for my newsletter sign-up. I had several customers ask me if I had a boutique downtown or if they could find my jewelry in local shops. It was a fabulous experience and I am really looking forward to the next show!

It was such a busy day, but I still managed to take a quick walk around the market and meet some local Etsy sellers. It was wonderful to meet the sellers of the shops I had seen time and time again on Etsy.

Some of my favorites included...

Merry Mint
Mu-Yin Jewelry
May Bee Clothing
Dodeline Design
Candy Shop Vintage
Perla Anne

All of these ladies had fabulous displays and their talent truly shined through their work. Mollie of Mu-Yin Jewelry has had over 4400 sales on Etsy alone and that's just one venue she sells through! Now THAT is inspiration!! :)

{A special thanks to Kristen, Manager of the Music Farm, for having the idea to host an Etsy inspired event here in Charleston!}
