This weekend, I set up shop at my very first craft fair! It was a new experience for me, and while it was small with not a lot of traffic, we did sell enough to make back the cost of our booth plus a little more AND got some great experience.
I had the pleasure of my daughter, Shannon, and my niece, Maddie's company for the afternoon and they were a BIG help. (Shannon also goes to school in the area, so a lot of her little friends came to visit and kept us entertained ;-)
Maddison also came with her own items for sale, some very clever duck tape pens, pencils, purses and wallets. She did a great job and sold quite a few! She also taught Shannon to make them and Shann was able to sell one of her own!
Some of the items I had for sale were these brooches
A few necklaces
Bracelets (both of the mermaid one's sold and were a huge hit!)
Also for sale were the cowls and hats pictured in the first photo.
We had lots of fun, and are looking forward to doing a few more craft fairs over the holiday season!
Hugs and Smooches,
