Craft Show Update

So, as I mentioned earlier I did a show last weekend.

What I didn't mention is that this wasn't just any show!  This was a show that I have gone to for years as a customer, but never as a vedor. 

I have wanted to do this show as a vendor for years, but it wasn't until this past year that I got up enough courage to apply.

So, about a month ago, I sent in my application and pics of some of my work and awaited the response.  I got the response about 2 weeks ago... they liked me, they really like me!  Hee hee!

Anyway, the Prince and I got there bright and early Saturday morning along with 70 other vendors.  I can't explain how excited and nervous I was!

At 10:00, people started pouring in and I mean literally pouring in!  Hundreds of them!  I really thought I was going to throw up!

It wasn't long before I started making sales.  The Prince and I were having a hard time keeping up, replacing items on the display.

I also got 2 custom orders, and I wasn't planning on taking custom orders!

Long story short, the items I thought would fly off the display didn't and the items that I wasn't sure about were the first to go!

Oddly enough, the holiday signs weren't very popular.  Wierd!  People loved my lovey dovey signs in all sizes!

And....I remembered my business cards this time!  Woo hoo!!!!!

Here are a couple of pics of my display...



Hubby made a display for me to hang some signs out of an old window that I had picked up and was saving for a rainy day!  It worked out perfectly!



The only thing I wished I had was a shelf or something to elevate some of my other items.  Next time I guess.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Hugs!
