    Any NJ crafters interested in organizing a show for 2007?

    Hi everyone,

    Wasn't sure where to put this...

    I know its been mentioned in a previous thread about the lack of shows in the NJ area that don't cater to crocheted doilies and brick-a-brack. :D I'd like to help change that and I'm looking for some crafty and resourceful people to help organize a trunk show for Spring 2007.

    What I have now:

    • I live in Irvington, NJ which is right between Newark and Maplewood about 15-20 minutes outside of NYC. I have access to a free room at the local library for any meetings.

      Currently I am in negotiations for a indoor location at a local park in Maplewood. The place is very nice...they host alot of wedding receptions and parties here. Plenty of bathrooms, parking, close to main streets, and local transportation. I do have to double check the size of the rooms.


    For those who don't know the area, here's alittle more info:

    Maplewood prides itself on being a diverse and family-friendly community. In a number of surveys it is ranked among the most desirable places to live in the United States. The township has a downtown area alternatively known as "the village" or "Maplewood Center" with its own movie theater, several upscale and midscale restaurants, a small supermarket, independent café, two liquor stores, and a small bookstore. The structure of the village is largely unchanged since the 1950s.

    It has been the site for several films, including Garden State, One True Thing, Stepmom, and The Reader




    Here's some more links:

    Seriously! I''ve been wanting to do something like this for years, partly because I think it would be fun - partly because I get so fed up at *normal* craft fairs that end up having non handmade things, and partly because I want to meet up with other crafters!

    Anyway - here''s the site:
    <a> http://www.HandmadeFaire.com </a>

    It''s in Ocean County, NJ - if you''re anywhere nearby - get a table! It''s only $40, there is onside lodging at a very reasonable price -

    and!!!! All our proceeds go to Natural Resource Education Foundation (essentially - saving the Barnegat Bay & the critters that live there)

    I''m on myspace too -
    <a>http://www.myspace.com/handmadefaire</a>

    I know this thread was made up a while ago - but if anybody pops in - I hope you''re interested!
