A Successful Show!

Yesterday, October 23rd was our second annual A FAIR TO REMEMBER. It was a beautiful day, we had a nice turnout, and the Fellowship Hall at Bethany Christian Church was filled with happy Artisans and shoppers. Our miniteam is very eclectic, with jewelers, graphics designers, party ware banners, mobiles, monsters, apparel for women and children. Reclaimed and Recycled part pieces, Handmade pens and boxes, and fiber arts...

The staff at Bethany did a great job assisting us get ready for the show, and were super to work with. A number of vendors donated items to the silent auction held by the school, so we hope that will add to the items offered this year. Last year we auctioned off chances at baskets at our other church and raised a bit over $100. for their youth ministry. This year items donated to the silent auction were worth more in their value, so how much they actually raise will depend on the bidders. :)

A special thanks to Doug Threeton, who was our contact at the church. He was a pleasure to work with! Celina our on the day of custodian, fulfilled every request, and did a great job too. If you were one of our shoppers at the Fair, we hope you'll look for our next A FAIR TO REMEMBER. First word of it, will appear here on this blog. We hope you'll come back to see us again, and tell your friends to come too.

Next meeting of Artisans of Houston is October 19th! Show on 23rd!

The Forum, an assisted living center located right at the intersection of I-10 and 610. Map here:

October 19th, 7 pm in the Bistro Room at the forum. We will be discussing final planning for the show on Saturday, October 23rd. If you are a vendor at the show, who is considering joining, this would be a great meeting to come to.

Here are the more detailed directions:
Once you turn into the driveway of the Forum, drive straight and pass a red building on the left and a small white building on the right. After that is a parking garage and a parking lot - the garage gate sometimes does not work, so parking in the lot seems better. The meeting is in the red building, on the fifth floor in the room called the Bistro (immediately outside of the elevators). The person at the front desk where you sign in can direct you as well, just tell them you're there for Artisans of Houston. Please feel free to bring things to show around!
