I had so much fun at my first show I was ready for another!
A gun show was occurring at the same location the following weekend for three days for less than half of what I paid for my booth at the craft show so I said sure, “Men love maps!”
I was ready with my kakhi and olive green, military sweater; I was ready to talk about hunting and game, and I was ready to talk maps. I was ready for flannel, camo, plaid, and carharts.
It was fun. Not much for sales but I did get lists of books to read up on my Montana history. I also learned about David Thompson, a mapmaker and explorer who arrived at the Columbia River George 10 years prior to Lewis and Clark. He’s known for his prolific and accurate maps. I also found out about a fun Rendezvous my Mom and I will attend in North Dakota in June as vendors.
I’m glad I went! I didn’t have much else to do with my weekend! What can I say? I’m hooked! I love being an artist and representing my work. I think there’s a real future for me, and I think I can almost really have my dream job (at least nights and weekends!)
