Funky Finds takes place spring and fall at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Ft. Worth. Located in Cattle Barn 2, it has a distinctive ambiance for a craft fair. All items being displayed must be hand made by the vendor. There was the typical assortment of jewelry and home decorative items, a few wood and metal working booths, but only one booth offering mixed-media consisting of car memorabilia and woodworking.
Although it is a "barn," the interior is all concrete and steel with electric outlets every few feet along the concrete back wall. As a vendor, it is convenient b'cuz you can bring your vehicle right up to the entrance, you don't need a canopy to protect your booth from the elements and the premises are secure overnight.
Since last year I made a point of creating another spot-light clock and a couple of Mustang wall clocks because these items have always been hot sellers. So, of course, none of them sold. The FireFlight script emblem I had purchased for $1.00 at my first event as a vendor three years ago did sell. Suzanne said she will miss it b'cuz it is so unique. I will too. (I could have purchased two at the $1.00 price, but I feared they would never sell and "who needs two of them?")
Funky Finds was a two-day show. This next weekend I am doing another indoor show at the Texas Motor Speedway, but it is three days. Attendees at this event will be classic car enthusiasts, but the craft fair will encompass both car and non-car themed items. I have done this show before and I am looking forward to it. The only drawback is that my lovely wife will be out of town (state & country) so I will be a lone wolf.
I am still trying new show venues to find those that provide the most effective exposure for my works.
