|gearing up with lots of business cards!|
Gardenscape is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (March 30, 31, April 1). There is a large area in Hall A at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon where you will find art - all landscape or floral themed. You will find fibre, photographs, and paintings of all types and sizes. If you see something you like, you tell the volunteers in that area and they will mark it sold with a red dot. They will take your contact info and give you the artist's contact info. At least that's how it worked last year. The art must remain for the entire weekend. The artists will contact the buyers once the show is over to arrange for delivery. I am not sure if the art area needs payment on the spot to mark it sold or not. I'm pretty sure people paid me directly upon delivery... but it's best to be prepared just in case. I am happy to pay the cost of shipping for any out-of-town buyers.
I'm going to put my framed threadpaintings up the night before the show starts. Everything I put up will be available to purchase - I promise! I won't put up presold items. This is more of a sale than a show, and the display boards aren't huge. I have eight pieces right now to go up ranging from $150 to $310. I won't have my postcards for sale there - those are for another occasion. ; )
Gardenscape is an annual trade show - GIGANTIC - featuring plants, food, decks, gazebos, sheds, trailers, hot tubs, barbeques, landscaping and of course - gardening. There is a fee to get in. People come from all over the province to shop at this event. Last year, tens of thousands of people came through the doors! It's big - so bring your walkin' shoes! I'll be hanging out to volunteer on Sunday - the last day of the show. Please do say hello!
