Today was the craft fair! I have good and bad to share.
It was my first experience doing one! I am now more prepared for future fairs.
Having a nice time with my mom and friend Nancy.
The weather was good!
I did sell some things!
I bought a wooden jelly cabinet sold by another vendor.
It was 90%(or more??) retirees. Florida retirees. A demographic not very interested in my kind of items.
I only sold a few things.
The amount of $ I made did not really make up the hours spent preparing.
But now if I do another craft fair, a lot of my ideas will already exist and it will take a lot less time getting ready. So I learned a lot in that way! So it was good and bad at the same time. :)
Setting up the table and also a bench with my pillows was fun.
So here is the general idea for set up while at home the past couple days:
And this is how it all looked today:
Our friend Nancy, who was there selling next to me, let me borrow this pretty bench from her house to display my pillows on. :) My mom helped me a lot. She made the little flag banners for me last night with paper, stencils, and a marker. She let me use something for displaying earrings too.
It was a good day overall, despite not many customers. Next time, I'd like to find a fair with younger attendees. :P
