Parade-HosueI have been invited to participate in a Parade of Home – Charity Benefit Holiday Open House.

A  business associate thought I would be a good fit for this event, since it is a Wake County Parade of Homes winner from 2008.  My illustration style is similar to those in the Parade of Homes, which is running on the same weekend as this event.  The home has remained unoccupied since 2009.  The Real Estate Agent thought it would be a great opportunity to get people to come in and look at the home for sale and to open it up to 20 or so Vendors, who would donate a portion of the sales to area community outreach programs for underprivileged children.

I was joined by specialized gift vendors selling hair bows, boutique children’s clothing, toys, hand-made baby bibs, jewelry, stamps and cards, home wares, pen and ink art and stationary (ME), nutritional supplements, spa products, Christmas ornaments, scrapbook materials and programs, gift baskets, and food!

This two-day event ran this past weekend, October 10th-11th.  Saturday was a bust, it was humid and rainy.  Sunday was beautiful.  We had many people going through the home, shopping and with a potential buyer for the home.  I was glad for the exposure to some different potential clients.
