AAJ at Open Streets Franklin

Amy, a Black woman with

This weekend, Amy A Jewelry was out in the streets – Open Streets Franklin Avenue, that is.

As one of Springboard for the Arts‘ artists who was selected for their Ready Made platform, I was invited to set up a vendor table under Springboards’ tent.

Thank goodness for that tent (provided by Seward Community Co-op, one of the event sponsors)!
There were occasional storm bursts throughout the day, but they cooled the temp down and brought even more people into the tent – which gave us artists and the Springboard Career Consultants more opportunities to interact with event attendees.

I hadn’t attended an event as a vendor in the many many years since my young people were little people, I didn’t have the extra hands to help me carry things, so I brought what I could manage (more on that in an upcoming post). It felt like I brought too few of my pieces, but it turned out to be just the right amount.

It was fun getting back in the swing of being an artist-vendor. I met a lot of lovely people – other artists and new customers alike.
