5000 Fans and... Surprise!

Almost four years ago, I thought to myself: It doesn't have to be this hard to find shows!  I created a facebook page, and the next morning I woke up to find 100 people waiting to start this journey with me.

This evening we have hit 5,000 fans.  I can hardly believe it.  Are there really 5,000 of you out there reading these posts, applying/shopping/putting on shows and supporting the local arts & crafts community?

That is really amazing.

So, this post is just to say: Hi!  Thanks for reading, for posting, for liking, commenting, and sharing this information with your friends.  Thank you for your patience when I am too slow and your encouragement when I need it most.  Thank you for upgrading your listings, purchasing ad space, and making donations to help me keep this adventure free and alive.  Thank you for stopping by just to say hi.


Just thanks.  I'm really glad you're here.  I'm really glad we are doing this together.  And I'm really hoping we are still at the beginning of a long journey together.


Enough mush.  I feel like celebrating!

Happy 5,000!

  13. You have been a God send to me and my little vending business. I came here for over a year before I realized there was a matching Facebook page. I have told at least 30 people about this site and how helpful you are to have this information for us to utilize without cost. REMARKABLE.
    Continued success and I can't wait to write again once your reach 10,000.
