Upcoming arts events to appeal to collectors

March 26, 2014 by  

There are two arts and crafts events coming up in the Wheeling area this April that should appeal to collectors.

The first of them is taking place in nearby Schaumburg. The Fabulous Spring Gallery Style Show features some of the best teddy bear artists in the country. Guests will have a chance to meet the artists while they browse their booths looking for the perfect bear to add to their collection. Vendors who wish to take part in the show can rent a table for $100.

Later that month, Vernon Hills will be hosting the 3rd Arts and Crafts Show over three days. It is expected to feature handmade arts and crafts, which will probably include jewelry, paintings, clothing, and pottery. Vendors of this show can rent a booth for $210.

Both events will likely be widely advertised in the Wheeling area. Local print companies often help organizers by providing marketing materials like postcards and flyers to be distributed.

The Fabulous Spring Gallery Style Show will be held at the Best Western Plus. Admission is $6 for adults and $2 for children. For more information, call Valerie at 502-423-7827.

The Vernon Hills Arts and Crafts Show will take place at the Westfield Hawthorne Mall from April 11 to 13. Admission is free. Contact Heartland Creative at 708-895-3710 for more information.
