Here’s some more fun pictures of my craft show layout. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before but you can ALWAYS click on the pictures to zoom in and get up close enough to kiss your favorite projects!
Lots of emails have come in and you ALL want to know the same thing!
HOW MUCH TO PRICE IT?
WHAT WAS YOUR BEST SELLER?
Well now that I’ve won a “major award” and have ONE craft show under my belt, I’ve decided to trade in my Demo Apron for an Expert Hat! Ha Ha! Really, to tell the truth, it seems that craft shows are a lot like yard sales, ebay auctions and other similar “venues.” You just plain don’t know! What sells at one might not sell at another. I think sometimes the environment affects what might sell. Like if it’s a Christmas show and everybody’s all hyped on Rudolph, your Snowman poop will probably sell better!
I tried to ask myself these questions when choosing items to make for the craft fair:
- Would I want this?
- Would I be willing to pay what it’s worth if the price reflected the labor that really went into it?
- Would I want this? Hee hee….
Spend the time on the items that are just plain cute and simple and don’t COST so much. NOT the things you can get “one just like it” at the store down the street for a fraction of the cost!
Best thing about the craft fair?
GOT to be meeting the people! I am all about meeting somebody new and learning what makes them special.
This picture is of me and Rose, my new friend! ROSE is some kinda awesome. I learned that she used to raise Angora rabbits for their fur. She then SPUN (as in spinning wheel, Sleeping Beauty!) the fur into thread used to make hats and other items out of. She used to demonstrate this at artisan fairs and museums. Know how I learned about it? Just CHIT-Chatting and running my mouth! I wish I lived closer to Rose. I’m DYING to see that spinning wheel and get my own finger pricked! :)
OH, did I mention that I won a MAJOR AWARD for best in show in my category? And that it included PRIZE MONEY? I hate to brag but I was literally jumping up and down and hugging the director and the judge. Who woulda thought?
My stamping besties and friends deserve the credit. Because without them telling me that “it’s not crap” and “no, you have A LOT here” I just woulda quit! Call me Miss “N” for negativity. (Actually that’s what those same people who say they love me called me!) Thanks – you know who you are! Every one of you – I love you!
