The craft show went GREAT! With the help of my trusty friend/accountant/maintainance woman Christine, we sold about ¾ of the items and made about 20% more money than last year! There was a record 4000+ people who went through the show this year, thanks to the addition of food and wine, which drew in many more customers than previous years! Here are some pictures from the show! 🙂 (be prepared…I went a little overboard with the pictures…)
Grubby tea lights and mini snowman clips…sold out!
All cinnamon shapes…sold out on the first day!
Sold ALL but 5 or 6 candles! They were hit!
Signs…not so much. The same thing happened last year. I only sold a few. 😦 I do have a few people who want to buy some for Christmas gifts, so that’ll be good. 🙂
All 3 wooden ironing board displays…gone!
The antiques sold very well. There were other craft booths, but none with antiques. Both vintage scales sold the first day! I love them for kitchen decor.
Christine and our mascot Melanie! Mel sure did draw in the people to our booth…I learned babies are a good marketing technique!
No one bought any of the little candles I enhanced with the texture fierro (brown and green ones along the bottom). I was surprised, because I thought they were really cute! Oh well.
Sold all but one of the country night lights.
I am an antique bottle junkie, and probably sold 1/3 of ’em.
The vintage reindeer and santa went too…wasn’t sure about those guys. I love vintage Christmas ornies! Probably do more of those next year, if I can find them. I got those at the Amvet!
All the lil snowman magnets…sold out!
The penalty box was directly behind my booth space…SCORE! We used it as our little nook…or ‘office’…hehehe! The ledge made for a great transaction area, plus being a few inches off the ice made a HUGE difference in us not freezing out @$$’s off like last year! I am going to request the same space again for next year…it was SO awesome!
There’s one of my Craigslist scores…the tea cart used as a display.
Homespun candy canes and pins…sold out!
The drool queen!
I thought Christine was going to beat me because I sold all of my ironing board display pieces! In place of them are Christine’s little TV trays drapped with fabric.
The trip home was pretty funny. Even though we sold a ton, the truck was full of all the display stuff. Christine took one for the team and was wedged into the front seat with the boxes that wouldn’t fit in the back, along with my brown bag full of wine I bought. lol. Thanks Teeny…I luv ya!
Hope everyone is weathering this snow alright. It’s coming down like crazy here in western NY. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks for looking…I’ll be back soon! 🙂
