It’s over! The one and only craft show I do each year!
On Friday afternoon, I loaded the car. The things you see in the floorboard would not fit anywhere else in the car. I had things in boxes, but couldn’t squeeze the boxes in anywhere.
There was a little room to spare on top of the black frame, but I like to secure things best I can in case I’m in an accident.
I even get creative with my seat belts.
I filled every nook and cranny.
This was ALL in my car!
The little pink repurposed foot board bench didn’t sell-the large white chalkboard didn’t find a new home either.
In the background you can see my niece Marie (purple) and her husband Tom (red hat). My niece is from Jamie’s dad’s side of the family. In the green hoodie is my sister’s son Kevin. I don’t know how my sister Jo didn’t end up in any of these pictures. Marie’s booth was to the left of mine, Jo’s booth was next to Marie’s. (the blue and white tent is Jo’s booth)
It’s hard to tell, but my booth ends at the green chalkboard, Marie’s booth had the purses.
The sign display worked out fabulously! It held all of the signs that I took. I brought very few signs home. Oh, and the cute tote bags you see hanging all around are from Donna, a reader. She’s a very nice lady who came to our Mint Julep June Jaunt. Donna recently participated in a show in Tennessee. She had some items left and mailed them to me to sell for her. I happily obliged.
The orange bottles sold well. The rings were Jamie’s. The gold chalkboard in the background did not sell, nor did the book bundles.
The gossip bench came back with me, as did the stainless steel chandy. I bought the phone so that I could display it on the bench. The phone found a new home.
This repurposed window project from long ago sold quickly. The towels (made from vintage linens) hanging from the repurposed shutter are from Donna.
This idea was a bust! Luckily I used some vinyl I got a really, really good deal on. So no money invested, just a little time. I think it’s a great idea, not sure why it didn’t go over better.
I had the pieces in the plastic totes. I guess it was “execution” of display? I had two pumpkins, and moved things around a few times during the day to see it that might make a difference. Donna’s sweet smelling sachets are in the turquoise bowl.
The weather was beautiful, and the crowd was plentiful! Now it’s back to working on the basement. Sales exceeded what I expected, but what didn’t sell will go up to the booth.
Some of the things in these pictures haven’t been blogged about yet. I’ll fill you in on some of the details this week.
