Show: El Barrio Artspace 2019
One of the best ways to test out a new brand or a new product is to tag onto a single evening pop-up event. These kinds of events only run for one night. They can give you a great chance to get your product in front of customers and begin to get real feedback. I set up my first table at a gallery opening at El Barrio Artspace in Harlem. This event was great in that I was able to practice setting up a display, speaking to customers about my work, processing credit cards and generally get a feel for what it would be like to run a table at a craft fair. This experience gave me the confidence and motivation to enter my first professional craft fair.
My First display was very small. It has grown considerably since then
The main focus of this event was an art opening. It took place in a very nice gallery which is part of an art collective building. I was also able to show some of my paintings for the opening as well which was a nice bonus.
