BAZAAR SUNDAYS AT THE STATE
In October, 2013 I applied to be a vendor at the Bazaar Sunday event, which was held at the historic State Theatre in Downtown South Bend and drew a number of artists,, antiques sellers, craftspeople, and unique vendors of all kinds. I thought that my spooky dolls would be a good fit during the month of Halloween. This was my first time taking anything I'd made out in public, and I was both excited and terrified.
Imagine my surprise when people responded positively to my work! They invited me back for the November Bazaar and I continued to particpate throughout the months that it was in operation. I met so many great people and gained some much-needed confidence that enabled me to stretch and grow further as an artist. The experience was invaluable and something I will always appreciate.
