It's finally time to tell you about my first craft market! I didn't get to walk around at all so I only got to take a few pictures of my table this time. Hopefully I'll have a little more time to check out other booths on Saturday. I just took these pictures really quick while no one was at the booth so they aren't great.
I woke up Thursday and my internet decided to be nice to me! So, I started the day with a little blogging.
My table (My friend Maja had some of her stuff there, too)
I ran out of space so I couldn't put all of my items out this time. I need to get a second table!
My rings look great in this display! This one belongs to my friend Renée. I wasn't able to get one in time because the store I tried to get it from was sold out. I ended up ordering one online this weekend because they were still out when I went back on Saturday. The seller assured me that it would be here by the middle of the week. I'm a little worried because I don't have a back up plan. Any suggestions for how to display my rings if it doesn't come in time?
I love the way my necklaces look on this cute necklace tree!
My ponytail holders and clips look so great with my new product cards! This made me so happy! I had to improvise on the price cards a little. I had originally planned to sell them as pairs but ended up selling them individually. I think it was a wise decision. People really liked them.
I had all the clips and ponytail holders looking so nice and facing the same way but the wind kept blowing them around. They were all even and pretty once I got smart and double stick taped them to the table. :-) I just got too busy to re-photograph them.
I ran out of time to make more cell phone cases, but I went ahead and put the one I had out. It didn't sell but people complimented it a lot. I might try some different designs and see how it goes.
I'm still not sure if I'm going to continue to sell the postcards. I like them and I actually sold one of the live music postcards, but they don't really go with the look of my other products. Any thoughts?
Last but not least...the plushies!!! I was very surprised at how well these sold! I'm scrambling to make a few to replace the ones I sold before Saturday! Everyone thought the cookie monster was a doughnut. It was pretty funny. I might have to make a doughnut now! ;-)
This picture was taken after all of the mini plushies were sold so I actually had a couple more in there at the beginning of the day.
I guess that's it. I think my first time out there was a huge success and I can't wait to try it again on Saturday. Even if I don't do well at all of them it's really fun and I'm so happy that I can finally share my work with other people! I think that's what crafting is all about! :-)
