Part 3 : Before The Show

Good Morning All! I guess I should have posted this first but, oh well. Better late than never, right?

1. 2-3 months in advance: If you have a website, post your show schedule.

2. 2-3 weeks in advance: Postcard/Invitation mailing to previous customers in and near the show.

3. 2 weeks before: Check your business cards/brochures supply, replenish if necessary.

4. 1 day to one week before: Get a haircut if you need it. (You never get another chance to make a first impression)

5. 1 week before: Plan show clothes and have them cleaned for the show.

6. Day before: Review map of route to festival.

7. Days before: Pack carefully. At every festival, someone has forgotten a vital piece of their display.

8. Week before: Photo document your newest work for next season’s jury.

9. Week before: Pack camera/film so you can photograph your booth.

10.Week before: Check your vehicle: tire, fluids, belts, etc

What great tips :) I love the table set-up of this booth. I wonder where they got that fabulous wooden sectional. I need something like that, lol.

Excellent tips, again! I have a big show this weekend that I've been preparing for so this was a nice refresher!

Thank you so much for posting this! I haven't done any shows yet, mainly because I'm very new and nervous about such things, but you have created a need to participate!
