I've gone to a lot of conventions over the past few year, but I've never worked a booth or a table. That's all about to change at Kollision Con!
Kollision Con is an anime convention in St. Charles, IL, taking place November 18 - 20, 2011. I'll be selling my awesome food jewelry and charms at the con in Artist Alley. For those of you unfamiliar with anime cons, think of Artist Alley like a craft fair.
Artist Alley at comic conventions primarily hosts comic book artist, but at anime conventions there is a larger range of original artwork and handmade items.
I've been working like a mad woman, sculpting tiny food out of clay, and I still have a long way to go. I've been wanting to do craft fairs and events like this for a while, but I never thought I could create something people actually wanted to buy.
I'm feeling pretty confident that people will love my miniature food jewelry. I just have to make a lot more jewelry to build up inventory for my table. I picked up a few jewelry display racks, and I even got one of those smartphone credit card readers!
I'll be sharing a table with my future sister-in-law and her store Masquerade Dreams. I'm really excited to venture into this new world of Artist Alley.
