  • First Craft Show

    Friday & Saturday I am in a craft show. It is a neighbourhood craft show that has been going on for 20 years. This is their last year. I went over at lunch time to get sort of set up and will finish this evening.

    Last night when I should have gone to bed I ended up making 3 more necklaces and a bunch of earrings. I'll probably do the same thing tonight.

                    I set up last night and will pop over at lunch time and again after work. I'll be there all of Saturday as well.

                    The people doing this craft show have been doing it for 20 years so they really have a well-honed system. There is a central cash area and shoppers bring their items there and a sticker with name of crafter and cost is put onto the crafters page. At the end of the show the stickers are tallied up and the crafter paid (less the entry fee of course).

                    I string necklaces and earrings as well as sewing a lariat necklace (which takes hours) but haven't attempted bracelets as yet. I've also got scented hot pads and what I call Hat'n'Hand - my version of a Turbie Twist and a German style hand towel which is basically a terry cloth pocket. The Hat fits into the Hand portion for storage.

                            Well, I sold 1 necklace and earring set - that's it, that's all. Oh well, at least the others I've created won't go bad.

                              I am sorry you didn't sell more. My girlfriend had a similar experience at at craft show, selling her stained glass stuff, lot's of lookers and comments, but she didn't sell one thing, not one thing. Very disappointing, and she won't do it again. She now has home shows.
