I can barely believe what a wonderful week I'm having: is this payback for a timely bribe I paid or something? Because I found out I've been chosen as an artist vendor for this year's PNA Winter Festival & Crafts Fair!
Tons of people shop for holiday gifts over a two-day period, so this juried festival and fair are kind of a big deal... more than 100 art and craft vendors, plus live entertainment...
Sales help support several neighborhood projects, including an art gallery, food programs for the underserved, and pre-school child care. The event is big enough for the organizers to sell temporary sales licenses for out-of-town vendors who travel to the Phinney Ridge neighborhood of Seattle from Portland and elsewhere.
I learned a lot just from observing the event in 2012. More to come about this year's festival... but in the meantime, if you'll be in Seattle save these dates on your calendar:
Saturday, December 7th
Sunday, December 8th
Gotta go... this art inventory won't build itself!
