A Minimalist's Art Market Checklist

A Minimalist's Art Market Checklist

I am an advocate of minimalism when it comes to packing and preparing for your very first art market. Here's a list of essential items I bring to my art market. I find that when I bring less items, there are less to keep track of, and it calms me more than having all possible supplies. For example, I don't bring pens to a market because if I need to take notes, I'll just use my phone. Try not to bring too much to your market so you don't feel even more overwhelmed!
