This past weekend we had our booth at the craft show. I will consider it a success because I sold quite a few bags...almost all of my sales were the largest bags with wool applique on them...so that was nice. I learned a few things too...I will work a bit more on the decor of my booth...not that it stopped my sales...but I need to make the booth a bit more pleasing...maybe I will attract more shoppers...I need to look for more items to use to decorate...I also learned that I am better at talking to people than I thought...I CAN do it!
I didn't take very many pictures...I got busy...talking with people...trying to stay warm...it was cold...and making new friends with other vendors...there were so many nice people there!
Don was walking around looking at all the booths Friday before the show opened...see Donna in the background...she was so nice and we bonded very quickly! Donna and her husband Bill have been doing craft fairs since 1970's...they were so wonderful and helpful with advice!
There weren't quite as many pretty decorations for this fair as for the Harvest Fair...but the lights were really pretty on Friday night...but it was so cold!
There were Christmas trees for sale all over...and they smelled so good!
Don and I are going to stop and enjoy the rest of the Christmas season...it has been a hectic couple of months and we are going to slow down...I have a couple custom bags to make and a very sad looking Etsy shop...but I will take my time...work on finishing Christmas gifts that I'm making...and enjoy the season the way it is supposed to be enjoyed...I haven't even started decorating my house! That is in the works though...all the bins are down...today I will turn on my Christmas music and enjoy the day cleaning and decorating!
Until next time...slow down and enjoy all the wonderful parts of this Christmas season!
