Definitely An Experience

Well I can say I am no longer a virgin....a craft show virgin that is :)

Things went very well yesterday.  It was a gorgeous day - sunny and warm with very few clouds in the sky.  Got to the show a little early and started to set up.  It took an hour; I couldn't believe it, but I did take basically everything I had as I didn't know what to expect.  I wasn't able to get any pics as I just finished setting up as people started coming in and messing up my

Overall it was an ok day.  It was a small show and everyone was saying it was a little slow as well.  I did as well as I could expect - it wasn't a bust and I did make a few contacts to other vendors for some custom items.

This was definitely a good show to start with and I will be back for their Christmas show.  Glad to have one under my belt now and can't wait for the next one.

So now comes the fun part of listing all the new items I made for the show that didn't sell.  Stay tuned to my shop over the next week as there is a lot to come.

Hoping everyone has a fantastic weekend.

Exciting Week Ahead!!!!

I have to start off by is absolutely gorgeous outside.  It's sunny, warm, a little windy, but gotta love the warmth this early in the season.

I am a bit of a nervous wreck right now.  I have recently quit my job and gone back to my old job and I also have my first craft show this week....eeeekkkkk

It is only a 3 hour show for City Employees only, so it won't be that's a good one to start with.  I am nervous as I don't know how it will go, if anything will sell or if I'll sell it all and have nothing left.  Everything is done and packed up so I don't really have anything to do but wait, which is killing me.

Also my shop will be closed Thursday while I'm at the show, but will be back up and running once updated on Friday.  There may be even some new items to post if they don't sell.

I will post about my experience as soon as I can and let you all know how it went.  I may even have a picture or two of my table.

Wishing everyone a great week.
