Well, September had about 10 days, don't you think?
In a 'normal' year, I would be knee deep in getting ready for Christmas shows about now. That's not exactly happening.....but guess what....it sort of is!
I'm quite excited that there are some 'virtual' or 'online' markets being planned. And I AM actually busy getting ready!
How will this work? Well, each one is a little different. It's an attempt by organizers and vendors to reach their customers at this traditionally busy season. Bring lots of shoppers together to see the the wares of the local crafters. So on a specified website, or Facebook Page will be the "event". There will be a listing, or even a 'page' for each vendor, showcasing their items. There may be just a link to a website or facebook page or instagram page. There may be a video or a detailed description about the vendor and their products. It may be for one day for a few hours. It may be for 3 or 4 weeks, accessible by you, the shopper 24/7 for that time period. It may have a 'live' component to it.
I think it's actually going to be an exciting time. Or at least I hope that it is. Since our world is going with more 'online' shopping and 'shop local' experiences as we deal with the COVID restrictions, this will fit in perfectly. It will be a new way of shopping actually.....for some of the 'shows' you will have lots of time to browse....you'll probably end up being able to see even MORE than you would have in person.
So far, I have 2 'shows' scheduled. And hopefully more to come! I'll let you know :)
