We're vending again, this time at Brooklyn's Atlantic Antic!
This is the first time I've ever even been to Atlantic Antic.  I've heard of it, but back in the 90's when I was going to every festival I could, I didn't know about it.
I'm pretty excited about it.  I never planned to vend so much in the year 2013.  I only intended to visit to get a feel of them.  Then, I would show up in 2014 with a fabulous selection specifically tailored for each event.
Well, you know I vend with the Diaspora Art Mart every second Saturday at the Brooklyn YWCA on 3rd Avenue.  Being with them has exposed Ioni's Creations to more festivals in Brooklyn.  When they run to one, we run too.
But I have to analyze everything to death.  So I want to know stuff like what the style is of the people who attend each festival, and if they are conservative or funky, mostly young or mostly old, diverse ethnic groups or mostly one ethnic group, etc.  I want to know what the people like, so I can give the people what they want!
Anyway, I'm nervous as usual, trying to get some more knitting and crocheting in, when I should be just packing up, lol.  This festival looks really crowded by the picture on top of the flyer.
Hope to see you there!
