CraftSanity Episode 209: Holiday vending tips from Bethany Nixon, Detroit Urban Craft Fair co-organizer
Last night I took a break from weaving, printmaking and loom building to chat with Bethany Nixon owner of Reware Vintage and co-organizer of the upcoming Detroit Urban Craft Fair (DUCF) at the Masonic Temple where we will both be vending Dec. 1-3.
On this episode we discuss last-minute tips for handmade business owners who are vending this holiday season and talk about what it takes to produce a large-scale craft fair like DUCF which is celebrating its 12th year.
We also talk about the cool and slightly controversial earrings that Bethany makes out of up-cycled records. Tune in to hear us laugh through our sleep deprivation.
Before I rush back to printing CraftSanity loom bags in my print studio, I’d direct to you to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair vendor list. I also want to show you a photo of Bethany with her cool, new pink hair so you can easily spot her this year’s show.
And here’s a preview of some of the items I’ll be featuring in my booth this weekend. I’m hosting a make & take in my booth from 6-9 p.m. Friday (Dec. 1) and I’m really looking forward to weaving with all the kindred spirits who stop by the CraftSanty booth. : )
