For over 25 years, the Town of Occoquan (located along the Occoquan River) has been hosting their annual Occoquan Arts & Crafts Show, and this year, Evelyn Brooks Designs will be a part the show!

We will be there showcasing our huayruro seed collection, as well as a few jewelry collections created with precious gemstones and sterling silver.

For the past two decades, the Spring Occoquan Arts & Crafts Show has featured hundreds of local artists, and the show also showcases the town’s rich history in Virginia.

l

And alongside the artists at the show, musicians will be performing at the Coffee House of Occoquan and at the end of Mill Street for your enjoyment.

The whole art show will take place this weekend, June 1-June 2. On Saturday, booths will be opening at 10 a.m. and closing at 6 p.m. Sunday will be opening at 10 a.m. and ending earlier at 5 p.m.

And we also hope to see some familiar friendly faces at the event, so if you’ve got a free weekend, be sure to give us a visit at the Occoquan Arts & Crafts Show!

Evelyn Brooks Designs began showcasing at wholesale shows about two years ago. And little by little I have discover that a jewelry entrepreneur in order to bring its brand to other markets you have to travel and showcase your products to different markets. The 1st  show was in Baltimore and then Philadelphia through the Buyer’s Market of American Craft. We are in the process to apply to the Atlanta and the New York Summer shows, too. But in the meantime I began my research about the well known Boston Gift Show. It only happens once a year in Boston(of course)and it opens the opportunity for your products to be seeing by buyers predominantly from Canada, Upstate New York and New England. Which in all honesty is a total new market for us.

I first call the organizer Erica Davidson and after a few questions, she asked me that she needed to see my work and if I had a website. I said: of course. After she looked at my website she said I have never seeing anything like this before. That was an honor cause trust me getting in to these wholesale shows it isn’t easy. The rest was paperwork and getting my final approval. I recently booked my tickets with JetBlue and did not even know they had lots of flights from DC to Boston so that allows me to leave to Boston the day before the show, set up on-time and come back home the day it ends on March 23rd at around 8p…isn’t that great?

So I can be with my little one to say good night, and my big one (hubby), too.

Let me share this with you, too. I booked my hotel through the Boston Gift Show site. They have a corporate rate with great prices for exhibitors and I will pay less than if I get a friends & family discount which I always try to get through my hotel friends & family contacts.

I am truly excited to be part of the Boston Gift Show!  I have never being to Boston but since I love traveling I am not afraid of going to a new city, meeting some new faces and showcasing my jewelry designs to a whole new market, I know it will be another jewelry adventure where I will gain experience regardless if we have a good or bad show.

Hopefully next thing you know is that we hit the Canada marketSmile 

Send me all your good energy for that to happenSmile

I will continue posting about the show during & after the showWinking smile

Hasta la proxima,

Evelyn Brooks
