It's Officially Fall...

Posted by Laura Kasperlik on

Pretty Clever Words is thrilled to be a part of the 45th Annual Chapel Hill Art Festival - yep, that's right - it's time for Festifall 2017!
Last year was a first for me, and I was completely impressed by the organization, the customers and the products flying out of the booth.  As a vendor, load-in can be so stressful, but the organizers and volunteers made it very easy and smooth.  The customers were great - both interested and interesting!  It was the perfect event to make a lot of sales on my fall and seasonal products, and to get feedback on popular items to make for the holiday season.
This event takes place in downtown Chapel Hill, along West Franklin Street, and it is a highlight of the fall craft season for me - I know you will love it too!
See you there, in booth A43!

but when we're done - i'm going to compliment you on your run.
