Opportunity Knocks?

Art found at ErinJade.etsy.com

Me and my mother have often talked about going to a craft fair or flea market to try selling the items we make. We just do a lot of wishing, thinking, and talking about it. Now that we live two states apart, it's mostly wishing(me in FL, her in AL)! To me, the actually doing part of it is a little overwhelming since I have no experience with it.

Well today on twitter I saw this tweet:
A call to Crafters! Handmade Holiday Bazaar in St. Petersburg, FL - Applications now open!
http://handmadeholidaybazaar.blogspot.com/

The blog says this:
We're looking for edgy, interesting, amusing crafts and crafters for the Handmade Holiday Bazaar. ...

So now the question is, should I apply?? It's $40 for a table, and $60 for a 10x10 booth space. It's December 5th, perfect shopping time for Christmas! Many of my necklaces are unique compared to store necklaces, and I make all kinds of pillows. I think a Sasquatch pillow, like one I sold before Valentine's day this year, would qualify as amusing!! Right?

So now I am just debating the applying part! I know I should, but it scares me! At least I would have many months to prepare and learn how to set up a good presentation. That is, IF my application was accepted!
