Craft Show Update

on November 4, 2012

My craft show today didn’t go as well as I’d hoped.  I was up until 4am this morning feverishly working on hats so I would have enough stock to bring with me and the only thing I sold was a pair of slippers.  To my father-in-law.  Haha.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE my inlaws?

Despite the lack of sales, it really wasn’t a bad day!  A wonderful friend of mine took the day off so she could help me out and keep me company, I had lots of visits from other friends, I bought a cute little belt for my daughter (for some reason pants don’t fit her properly in the waist and she ends up waddling around like a penguin with her pants halfway to the ground unless I hike them up every 15 seconds), cupcakes for my husband (which he so kindly shared with me, even though I told him he didn’t have to) and a microwaveable heating bag for myself (leopard print- how posh! haha).  The day ended with a trip to the mall to buy myself an Audrey Hepburn-esque dress and the cutest pair of shoes.

Another reason I can’t call the craft show a total bust is I ended up getting a ton of business from it.  I’ve had so many people visit my facebook page and/or place orders- I’m going to be a busy lady for a while!  I can usually get two or three hats done in a day so I don’t think I’ll have too much of a problem keeping up but this Christmas season is going to fly by.  Before I know it we’ll be into January and I’ll be wondering where November and December went!

    Sounds like your success came in an unexpected way….I don’t think there were many ‘buyer’s at that sale…just a lot of looky loo’s…another vendor we know had the same problem. Perhaps with it being the 1st of the Season and the big one at ICS today ???? It was nice to see you again…Anne

    • That’s right Anne! Closed door, open window- right? I talked to a couple other vendors and they said it was pretty slow for them too. I wasn’t the only one selling crocheted/knitted items either- I wasn’t expecting there to be so many similar vendors. It was nice seeing you again too! 🙂
