Indie Craft Caravan -Nashville

Hey everyone, thanks for your interest in the Nashville edition of Indie Craft Caravan. Unfortunately, our Nashville premiere has not generated much interest. I hate to have to make this announcement, but we won't be producing a holiday market this year. We started too late, and were not able to introduce ourselves to enough people in time.

However, we feel that if we continue to network in the community, meet more people, and build relationships with Nashville artisans and DIY fans, perhaps we can pull together a spring show.

I hope you'll continue to follow ICC, and share your comments and ideas.

Chug chug chuggin' along

Hi, thought I'd drop in and catch everyone up on the latest. We are working on securing a location for the show, don't want to announce it yet, not until it's signed, sealed and delivered. I know you understand.

I can tell you that we are looking at the downtown Donelson area, a highly visible location with a lot of drive-by traffic. I think it is a fantastic spot, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the owners will accept our offer and terms. I'll blog and tweet as soon as I get the news, trust me! 

Join us on Facebook, give us some feedback and help us build the show you want to be a part of. We are always open for suggestions, after all this is our first venture into the Nashville area, even though I grew up in Nashville.  And tell your artsy crafty friends to join  us, I'll be blogging some craft show marketing tips and promo stuff soon. I hope you find it interesting.

well... here we are.

First post, new blog.  We are new to Nashville TN, but not new to the handcrafted scene, as both an artisan and an organizer.  I hope you will join us, and come see us this November for the first annual Indie Craft Caravan Holiday Artisan Market.    Looking at locations now, in Donelson primarily, and should have our location finalized within the next week or so.    

If you are interested in keeping up with us as we pull this show together, follow our blog or facebook page.  If you'd like to be the first to know when we announce a call for artist for our shows, simply join our mailing list. We'll never share your info with anyone else, we promise.
