While at the Charlotte Craft Show, note these consumer tips for buying great craft

* Have a plan in mind. For the serious collector or first time buyer,
target the artists or type of art you want to see first.
* Talk with the artists.
* Take notes. There are many exhibitors and great artwork to see.
* Experiment. Discover new mediums you may not have known or appreciated
* Discover the functionality of craft. Craft art’s most unique
characteristic is its usefulness. It’s made to be touched, picked up
and used.
* Buy what you like. Your appreciation of the work creates the value of a
piece, not how much it costs.
* Buy it now, or forever wish you had. Ask the artist if the piece is one-
of-a-kind or if he or she has similar items they can show you that are
not on display. If you find a piece you really love, and want to think
about purchasing it, you may find it sold when you return.
