Come to the Craft Show

Last weekend was our last BIG craft show. This show opens at 8:00 a.m., which meant a 4:00 a.m. wake up call for me. I share a booth with my parents (they do all the wood stuff), and we've had some really big shows in the last few months and kind of got caught short with our Christmas/Winter stuff.

These are the posts that my mom and dad make. They have lights on them. Of course, the camera battery died before I got a picture of them lighted up. They sold over 10 of these.

Here's one of our shelves and table displays. EVERYTHING in this photo was sold. Gone. Out the door. Aren't those little frogs absolutely darling? Those are done by my mother. The pillows are mine (well, not anymore, they all found new homes).

It was a rush to set everything up, people were lined up outside the doors before 8 a.m. and I didn't sit down until 12:15 p.m. I was totally exhausted. It will be nice to have this weekend off, and then another show. Our set up will certainly be much easier at the next two shows because we'll only have one set of shelves and a screen to set up.

Hope you had fun coming to the craft show with me!

Wowee! you have been busy! glad to hear you made lots of sales!

Just think of the nice restful weekend you can have.

We went to a craft show last weekend, and I have to say a good 70% of it wasn't really craft, it was mass produced stuff they labelled as 'craft'...have you noticed this at the shows you sell at?

Everything is so darling. It would have been fun to be there! Congratulations on selling so much. Enjoy your weekend off. You have more stockpiled to sell in two weeks, or you will be working night and day to build back up?

Les, your booth is amazing! Congratulations on being "sold out" Does this mean you have to make more of everything now? At this time, people are now in the Christmas Spirit, so best get busy. Your mum and papa's items are adorable! It is no wonder they sold that many!
