Last Saturday

I've finally uploaded my pictures from the craft show I did last Saturday. We had gorgeous weather, sunny and in the 60s, with a breeze to keep it from getting too hot. And considering it was a smallish show (only 50 booths I think), we had fairly nice crowds.

However, everyone was looking at things, and few people were buying. The show ran from 10am-4pm, and I made less than $50. Considering my booth fee was $75, I was not pleased. But most of the other vendors I talked to had similar complaints -- people just weren't in a buying mood. Whatcha gonna do?

At least I got these nice pics taken of my booth, so if I decide to apply for a booth at more juried shows (next spring, maybe?), I'll have good photos to send. I have another show in a couple weeks, and one in November as well, so I'm hoping I'll be able to make up what I lost at this one between those two.


  1. That "instant canteens" line really works for me to explain the product, suggest an impulse buy, and sound a little unique all at once.

  2. Thanks! I figured they're like instant coffee or instant soup, etc -- just add water! Or in this case, a water bottle ;-) They've been my biggest seller all summer.


Thanks for stopping by! Stay and chat, won't you?
