This holiday season I’m only participating in two local Chicago craft fairs. Here is my Holiday Craft Fair Schedule for Steel Petal Press!
DIY Trunk Show
Saturday, November 22 – (that’s in less than two weeks!)
10am – 5pm
Broadway Armory Park
5917 North Broadway Street, Chicago

find me at BOOTH #23 – which is right when you walk in. This will be my 3rd year at the DIY trunk show. It’s a nice low key Saturday afternoon event. You still get all the quality of the Renegade Craft Fair, but without all the insane crowds. I’m looking forward to it!

Thur, Dec 4, 11a-8p
Fri, Dec 5, 11a-8p

I’m starting to get excited and a little nervous for the OOAK show! I’ve never done a show like this before. It’s like Renegade Craft Fair in that it’s direct to customer sales, but it’s like the National Stationery Show in the way the booths are set up (with hard walls and furniture.) It’s close enough to both, but still will require a completely new set up, so I have been working on totally reimagining my space. On top of that this is the longest direct to customer show I’ve done and I have no idea how much merchandise to bring to a FOUR DAY show!
I’ve been spending my time the last few weeks getting my inventory together, figuring out my booth set up, how to display everything and thinking about what furniture to bring. I’m getting closer, but there’s still lots of work to get done.
If you’re in the Chicago area, I would LOVE to see you this holiday season. Please stop by and say HI!
