Ceramics Showcase 2009

My booth at Showcase 2009

My booth at Showcase 2009

 
Everyone selling pottery at the show was wondering how it would go this given the economy.  Would people show up?  Would they buy anything?  What would they buy … functional ware, “artsy” pieces? 
 
The attendance was up for the show … I heard that the there was a 24% increase in attendance over last year’s show.  This was great to hear!  I haven’t heard yet anything about the income for the show.  For myself I didn’t do as well as years past but better than last year and better than expected.  I didn’t many large vases but sold a lot of medium  and lower priced pieces.  I was quite pleased with the show.
 
It was wonderful to seemany familiar faces and friends; both potters and patrons.  I also met many new people which was nice.
