These smaller art markets and festivals are relatively new. It used to be that festivals were at least two days, maybe more, and typically at least $100 entry, sometimes up to $500. One-day or Saturday only markets are so much easier to prepare for since they are only one day instead of two—you only have to prepare one days’ merchandise and worry about being completely occupied for one day instead of an entire weekend. They are also much less expensive, and often are community-development efforts to help build traffic in a community so the community really comes out to support, and I’m glad to help in sending out the notice to bring people in.
BUY FRESH, BUY LOCAL, BUY HANDMADE!
