Black Friday Sale & Stawberry Swing's Holiday Swing, December 5th and 6th

We are having a Black Friday and Small Business Saturday sale of 20% off all items at Ugly Glass & Co. which recently moved their location in the West Bottoms to 1219 W 11th St, Kansas City, MO 64101. They are just down the street from Hickory Dickory, and in a much better parking area with a first floor location. My items are on the first floor near the check out now.
The official Facebook event is located here if you would like to check out the other vendors selling their items at Ugly Glass! Ugly Glass & Co. carries locally made products, including home decor, gifts, jewelry, clothing, & art, in addition to vintage items. Check out their website here!
So, I got quite busy with craft shows, Christmas shopping and just in general life-demands (I have a more than full-time job at present moment, on top of designing, sourcing items, making and vending and selling jewelry). I didn't get a chance to write about any of my other craft shows. Fast Eddie's Swap and Show was fun but I didn't get enough people visiting my booth. Gladfest was also fun, but with over twelve hour days vending, I will not be doing it next year due to time constraints and not making enough profit for all of the time I spent. Crafts & Drafts & Belvoir Winery's Sip and Shop were both busy, fun, profitable and very positive experiences, so I will definitely be back again next year! The next show I am doing is Strawberry Swing's Holiday Swing on December 5th and 6th.
Strawberry Swing started several years ago in Kansas City and is one of the most popular craft shows in the Midwest. Full of creatives who are experts at their craft, this indie craft fair is the Midwest’s celebration of the handmade movement. Founded in 2011, The Strawberry Swing has become a Kansas City tradition, with two fairs: The Summer Swing and The Holiday Swing. In 2015, we added the First Annual Spring Swing.

The 4th annual Holiday Swing is December 5th and 6th at the Uptown Theater Shoppes at 3600 Broadway, Kansas City, MO. This location is right across from the Uptown Theater. I will be joining over 85 handmade vendors, and there will be food trucks, a child's craft area, a photo booth, and live music. I will be hanging out some Small Business Saturday items at my booth as well, as American Express (my favorite credit card company due to their wonderful customer service) has supplied me with several swag items to hand out again this year!

The first 100 guests each day to bring children’s books or monetary donations to Strawberry Swing's non-profit partner, The Family Conservancy, will receive a coveted swag bag full of items our fabulous makers have donated. We’ll also have a raffle of vendor’s items for TFC with suggested donations of children’s books or monetary donations, as well as a raffle for Great Plains SPCA, so bring dog or cat food & toys, too! If you would like to check out all of the other fabulous vendors, visit here for more information.
I also wanted to give a big shout out and thank you for all of those who have bought from me during the past four craft shows I've done this year! This is my first year doing more than one craft show, and I have to admit that I was a little scared, a little intimidated, and being an introvert, a little concerned. However, most of the shows I have been to have been filled with wonderful people, who have only fed me love and positive vibes, so I appreciate you all so much! Knowing that people appreciate and love my work only fuels my fire to create - and I expect to try and do a few art pieces over the next year as well!
