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.
