Dawn’s Currans special guest post
Dawn Curran owner & creator at EarthNerd….
I have a strong desire to create all kinds of crafty, handmade things. Although, I lean toward those that are inspired by nature or upcycling. I’m happiest spending my time outside practicing archery, hiking, camping, or learning about nature and primitive skills. I work at a 40 hour a week office job that was dragging me down. I needed a sense of peace during my free time to find balance in my life so I started my own business .
I now happily own a craft business called EathNerd that I operate in Tacoma’s Stadium District. I love bringing nature inspired herbal body care products, whimsical botanical jewelry and fun upcycled accessories to my local community at craft fairs and local shops like UrbanXchange and American Ritual Tattoo. This summer you will find me vending at both Stadium Fare and Music & Art in Wright Park. I love vending outside in the summer and Stadium Fare is the perfect venue. I enjoy the opportunity selling my creations so close to home to neighbors and tourists alike. Stadium Fare is a well-rounded, convenient market for both shoppers and vendors.
My advice to new vendors is;
Make a to do list and bring it to the event. After the event, update your list (add things you forgot & remove things you didn’t need). Be prepared for anything.
