My second event was on the first Saturday in May. Meridian, MS Art Walk. It started at 11 AM, which means, I did not have to rush my family out the door like I did for my first event. I had in mind all my notes to self, from my first event, as I made ready for the Art Walk. This event was downtown Meridian along the sidewalks in front of participating businesses, so I had no tent, just one long table, and end tables. I had everything organized in a neat little basket. I had an item to give away free to promote my art and I even had enough time to cover the bottom of the table this time. Ok, I know you want to know how did it go. I was still not prepared enough for the fierce wind, so I used duct tape to keep my art down and was not able to give a spectacular display because I was playing tag with my artwork. I also should have had a bigger sign for my free Art giveaway. On the bright side, it was great exercise running in the wind and I met more artsy friends and great people from the business community. When the event ended. I had a few more notes to self, some were repeats with a big red caution sign flashing through my mind.
1. Please prepare for wind, rain, etc. to protect your work.
2. Use a large eye-catching sign for free giveaways.
3. Ensure you have a durable display stand for your products.
Do you have notes of your own, to have a better show? Feel free to share them in the comment section below. I hope your next show is a great one.
