My Big Craft Show...

Me_at_Craft_Show
Well everyone, my big craft show is here today and tomorrow. I went Friday night to partially set up for the show, and today was the first day of the show.

Lots of lookers, but not alot of buyers out and about! I hope tomorrow is a better day! I did sell some candles and some jewelry, but there are so many jewelry sellers there this year, that my odds have been greatly reduced! Almost every other table is selling jewelry, whereas last year there were maybe 10 of us selling jewelry. Now the ratio is more than half of the sellers! That really stinks. And this year, they put another jewelry selling table right next to mine!! That isn't how it is supposed to be! You are supposed to space them out.

Anyway, I will let you all know how tomorrow goes.....wish me luck!!!

Thank you all for your comments and well wishes!!

The show wasn't great, but it wasn't a bust either! The stormy weather kept alot of people away, and I think the economy kept the rest from buying.

But like I said in my post...there were so many people selling jewelry, that I think that by the time the people got to my booth at the back, they were sick of looking at jewelry, so they passed right by. I did at least have my soy wax candles to draw them in, and sold some of those, and then some jewelry once they were in the booth. But if they didn't come in, they just passed right on by. I will either do more candles next year, or come up with something different....the jewelery is everywhere!

Thanks so much again for your support!!
My love to all of you!!
Hugggzzzzz!

There are always more jewelry sellers than anything else at thesse shows, lots of competition. Hope you did ok though!

Sorry to hear it wasn't a huge success, but good that you sold some things. Things seem to be pretty slow everywhere right now.

Your booth looked great!

Sorry to hear your show wasn't a booming success. I have one this weekend and am worried that the economy will really effect sales. It is also supposed to rain :-(

Oh my I am so sorry hear this. I just passed through here and saw all of your lovely things.

Did you ever do any better that week end?
