Do you know I only do one craft show a year? Last week a vendor at the shop where my booth is was able to get into this show at the very last minute. She called me at 2 PM on Friday. Friday night I was setting up, sharing a booth with her. Bright and early Saturday morning I was there helping her man our booth.
I had the opportunity to walk around and take a gander at the other booths, this cafeteria, two long hallways, a small gym, a big gym, and a couple of lobby areas. This place was packed! I only made one purchase, and it was from the booth that was set up behind us.
I didn’t have much time to get stuff together. I grabbed some stuff from the booth, and a few things from home. See the snowmen? they are hers. Aren’t they adorable?
We put the things that lit up on one side of the booth.
I took several of my spindle trees. Look at the far right and left of the booth behind us. On the right is a bi-folding door, cut in half with every other slat removed to display jewelry and scarves. On the left, another door with every other slat removed to display key chains.
These tiles were my best sellers. I sold most of them, and even got 4 custom orders for people to pick up later at the shop. I didn’t get any pictures of Mona’s other best seller. She sold tons of her snowmen, and a lot of her solar lights. You can barely see one on the table behind my tiles. She uses landscape timbers, binds them together with rope, decorates them really pretty, and puts a solar light in the tallest timber. She sold a bunch of school lights and snowmen.
The craft fair was really busy and quite festive. We had carolers…
Even the big guy himself made the rounds. It was a great day. I had to leave around 1:30 for a Christmas party. Thank you Mona for watching my stuff and hauling it all home for me! I suppose craft fair season is winding down. Perhaps I should have done a few more shows…maybe next year.
