Indie Artists & Makers Fall Festival Season
Here in the southeastern US, we are drifting deeper and deeper into fall festival season --- of the Indie and handcrafted realm. Even boutique farmers markets are in full swing curating a selection of local artists and makers to sell alongside organic farmers and those who specialize in small batch goods. While so many amazing festivals have already come and gone (i.e. Indie Craft Parade in Greenville, SC) there are still so many to check out or even become a vendor with. (See below)
Speaking of becoming a vendor, do you have all your marketing materials ready? Do you need a logo and help with social media setup? Do you need packaging, a sign for your booth or table...business cards perhaps? Seek no further. Being a maker myself, I've had to do this for my side business, Bernice London, on TOP of making new items and it can be overwhelming. I would love to help ease that hefty load so please reach out and let's get you setup with all of that so you can focus on your art, goods, or small batch fabulousness.
Check out some of these fabulous festivals and markets happening in the southeastern US. If you know of some I missed, or have some in other parts of the country, please feel free to list in the comments. We need to all be aware of the amazing handcrafted goodness out there.
