RAWArtist is the nations largest showcase in the world. They help and promote so many artist, which is why it was an honor being selected and invited to the show!
I launched my business in September 2018, and shortly was invited as a participant in November. I displayed eight pillows and sold six at the event and two online. It was my first showcase and taste at getting paid from doing something I loved. Since the show I have been inspired to become a vendor and entering art shows. These are things I didn’t consider much before.
With that being said go with the flow, follow your heart, and be open to new opportunity even if you don’t feel 100% ready. I literally rushed to get all my items ordered and reached out to family for financial support. I was intimidated by not only the cost, but the pressure to sell 20 tickets in exchange for my booth cost. I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but the event turned out amazing and the pressure to get ticket sells = guaranteed support from loved ones.
