Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!

It’s funny how when I start choosing photos for a show’s collage of Rochester Artisans, a theme seems to develop. Usually it’s a color theme, my favorite kind. Today? Animals!

Photo Designs by Claudia: Glen Echo Park &emdash;

Signage and publicity is a major topic for us on our Rochester Artisans email list.

I’ve seen a good number of signs for this show around the Penfield/Webster area in the last week. They were “homemade” sandwich boards and other durable wood-based signs, with clear, large, legible words. The key to being a useful sign is to use as few words as possible, with just the facts ma’am. Even I’d be tempted to tell how many years (3rd Annual) the show has been running and the precise name of the show. But I think it’s better to use the generic words “Craft Sale”, followed by the address and hours.

yard-Sign

It’s tempting to use the yard signs so readily available from VistaPrint and others. And they are certainly better than no signs but I feel like I’ve never seen a yard sign standing up straight! The wind seems to bend them over so they are barely readable!

The sandwich board signs are a one-time investment in time and materials – you can just change the date from year to year.

We have a section on our Biz page dedicated to Show Organizers. One of the best things there is a spreadsheet of PR opportunities. I point every organizer who sends me an application to share with our members, to that page. We’re out to raise the bar on all craft shows and art fairs! The best shows with the best artists are a win/win/win = organizer/artist/customer.

Best wishes for a successful show for all of our Rochester Artisans this coming weekend!

1st Brainery Bazaar – May 11

Brainery Bazaar Logo

I love this logo SO much!

And I love Rochester Brainery, too. That’s the mother ship that is launching this monthly craft show series on the 2nd Saturday of each month. I wrote more about it and the first class I took there, in March. I say first because I know there are more in my future.

On May 11th, Rochester Brainery will present the VERY FIRST Brainery Bazaar, our NEW monthly craft show held the 2nd Saturday of every month!

Brainery Bazaar will feature some of the best local artists- no matter their trade! Not only do we want to be a space where local artists can share their talents through teaching classes, but we also want to be a space where they can showcase their talents to the community on a regular basis.

This is a FREE event and the first 25 people in the door will even receive a FREE Brainery Bazaar tote bag with some great swag!

We’re still recruiting local artists to become a part of our monthly show! If you’re a local artist interested in finding out how to get involved, please e-mail info@rochesterbrainery.com.
