 Sell Local: A new workshop about winning at fine art + craft fairs 
in collaboration with Pop Shop America founder, Brittany Bly

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 // 6:30pm - 8:30pm 
Registration + Networking: 6-6:30pm

@ Winter Street Studios 2nd Floor Gallery
2101 Winter Street, Houston, TX 77007

Fine art and craft fairs are a great way to get your artwork out there and interact face to face with a big audience. Let Fresh Arts and Brittany Bly, Pop Shop America founder, guide you through local opportunities so that you can decide if selling at local art markets is right for you and learn how to navigate these selling opportunities successfully. This workshop will also discuss tips on how to grow your craft business and transition from selling at arts markets to approaching local retailers. Representatives from local shops and arts markets will be on hand to discuss their opportunities and application guidelines.

This workshop will focus primarily on local selling opportunities for art and craft makers and will not cover online sales or third-party platforms like Etsy. Bookkeeping, small business taxes or legal issues will also not be discussed. Fresh Arts offers a yearly (free) Tax Workshop and Legal Clinic in February.

Topics covered:   

  • * juried vs non juried arts markets
  • * quick tips for setting up the perfect booth display
  • * pricing, selling & customer interaction 
  • * tips for retaining customers
  • * how to approach local retailers
  • * identifying local opportunities

Local Opportunities to be discussed: 
Winter Holiday Art Market (WHAM), Pop Shop America, First Saturday Arts Market, The Market at Sawyer Yards, and the Bayou City Arts Festival
