Local Artist Show. Done. Why is it called local? I heard it started in the 70's with four or five artists in a barn in Whipple. If you are not from around here, this is a rural area near Marietta, Ohio, the name of which always strikes me as funny. You know- Mr. Whipple and Charmin bath tissue. Apparently they wanted people to know the artists were local? This is my first year participating in the show. It has grown over the years. I have attended as a customer several times and knew it was a quality show. The number of artists this year was 26.
Sales were good. Random, but good. A little of this and that. Could have sold a boat load of these robin's egg blue mugs with decal transfer images if I had made a boat load.
The one consistent part of the show is that people really, really liked my earrings! So Janet Smith of Simply Wired at the River City Farmer's Market got a lot of advertisement at this show. And she wasn't even there!
