Default Bead Fiesta - NYC

Hi - I just received a solicitation to join this new show in NYC, which is trying to replace the Urban Glass Show that fizzled two years ago. It is scheduled for the east side on April 18-19. I'm leaning toward vending, since I live in NJ, which keeps my overhead low, and since I used to do very well at the Urban Glass show. Does anyone know anything more about this? Is anyone from LE thinking of doing the show? jeri

I hadn't heard of it! I am in Viriginia now, so I will try and look it up. Maybe a great weekend of shopping!

I saw their ad in Bead and Button, they do a number of shows, but so far I can't tell much about this one. Jeri

"Bead Fiesta" is put on by Bev & Mac of MacArts (along with mom, Shirley) -- they've actually been doing a series of east coast shows three or four years now. (They took over Looie's Boston show a couple years ago.) They're super folks, dedicated to keeping costs down for their vendors, just all-around good group!

If I wasn't such a sissy about driving the motorhome up in that neck of the woods, I'd be doing their shows in the proverbial "New York heartbeat"!!!!

HTH!
Lea

Jeri, so sweet to offer your driveway! But I'd still have to drive there.

But do give Mac & Bev a try! I've meant to get one of their shows into my schedule the last couple of seasons...

Best,
Lea

Hi Jeri:

What Lea said!

I did Bead Fiesta West Chester, PA last Feb, and I did really well. If I could get to NYC that weekend, I'd give the show a try. The table rate was very reasonable compared to other shows in NYC. Unfortunately for me, that show is one weekend before RMBS out in Denver, so I think for this year, it would be too much running around for me.

Best,
Patti

OK, OK, I guess I had better get it together on the app for this show.....I do wish you were coming Patti, fondling your beads makes me a whole lot less concerned about sales! Jeri

I did some Bead Fiesta shows a couple of years ago when I lived in the area. I thought they were well put together!! I would reccommend them!

Jeri,

I am in the process of deciding to be a vendor at this show with my vintage findings. I'm glad to see they have a good reputation. Does anyone else have any feedback on these shows, or others on the East Coast? I'm ready to jump in!

Many Thanks!!

We just got home from the two day Bead Fiesta show in NYC. This show was small, intimate, and beautifully run. All of the advice I got about these folks was right on the mark!! How nice to meet artist/business people who know their stuff. Set up and break down was a snap, and the show was well advertised and organized.

Admittedly, at times the crowd was a little light, but many customers remarked at how happy they were to "find" some of the original Urban Glass bead vendors (a now defunct show). DEFINITELY keep this on your radar screen for next spring, I think with a little time there will be a ground swell of support for this show. Jeri
