I wasn't sure how this show would go, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were a large number of artists/crafters there and a steady stream of people. The show was only four hours long, but worth the booth fee and my time.
I met a lot of really nice people that are from the neighborhood and made some nice connections. I also made a nice little amount of money, which doesn't hurt.
This little guy went to a great new home. It was the first thing I sold and the day just kept going like that. I had a bunch of small sales, but those add up. I also talked to two people that were interested in custom orders. One for a multi-strand necklace and one for a beaded skull.
The only problem I encountered was that J had motorcycle class Sunday morning, so I had to set up by myself. It wasn't a huge problem. I asked one of the people putting on the show to help put up my canopy and then I did the rest by myself. It obviously took a little longer then if there were two of us, but it went smoothly. J showed up towards the end of the show to help me tear down. And he stopped by the bakery booth and got me a spicy empanda. Yum! Oh and he passed his motorcycle skills class!!!
So overall it was a nice little local show. The price was right, the people were nice, and the sales were good. Can't ask for much more then that.
Now I need to finish up a custom order I'm working on and get ready for my next couple shows. Luckily those aren't until October, so I've got a little time.
