1000 Markets

May 12, 2009

I’m excited to announce I’ve just been juried into 1000 Markets!

This bowl has been blogged about already, but I thought I’d share it again today because it’s included in my new 1000 Markets shop.  This is the first time I’ve participated in an on-line market so have a bit of a learning curve in front of me.  When you visit, please bear with me while I set up shop and begin adding inventory.  I accidentally found this site a couple months ago while learning about blogging in general and immediately liked it enough to bookmark it for further exploration.  A couple days later I couldn’t get it off my mind, so went back and started the process of ‘opening’ my own shop!

1000 Markets is a community of incredible artists, working in a huge range of media, as you’ll see.  ‘We’ also join forces under the umbrella of ‘markets’ to make shopping easier if you’re looking for specific items.  A network of shops not unlike a weekend art fair but instead of a transient fair, you can shop anytime from the comfort of home!  The same day my shop was approved, I received an invitation to join a specific market, Walls – decorate your personal space!

I’ve opened my shop with a few bowls from my Celestial Series, the recycled wall pockets and a few other things that you may have seen here, like the hearts in my Valentine’s day post: Happy Valentine’s Day.  I’m working on adding  jewelry, art glass wall pockets, and more sizes of celestial bowls.  If you’ve seen me at an art show or been to my studio sale, you know I have a long journey ahead!

With the Columbia Gorge Art Festival this weekend and work for the Art in the Garden show at Columbia Art Gallery due at the end of this month, it will be next week before I can start adding new items, so please check back often to see what’s new!  By the way, you can leave a note for me on my 1000 Markets blog to let me know how you like it, or just to say ‘hi’!  You can even ‘recommend me to a friend’!
