The First Craft Sale

Where none of us handmade folks did very well. I think most of us got their table fee back but… I didn’t.

Anyway here are some fellow crafters and their cool set ups 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear that this show didn’t pan out!

    It too me quite a while before my shows were consistently good and I still have at least one stinker a year. I tend to view the small shows more as a way to check my booth setup, get my cards out, meet other vendors… that sort of thing.

    Luckily, haven’t yet had a stinky big show. It’s gonna suck when it happens.

    Nice Pictures Jo!

    Hoping that the next sale goes better for all of us!

    It was great meeting you!

    Great pictures Jo!

    I agree with Elaine – although the sales weren’t great at least we got some cards out and people got to see our product and we got to meet other local Artisans. 🙂
    I’m always leery of Sunday shows…this is the 3rd one that I’ve done and all 3 have been duds.

    Better luck and sales next time! 😀

    Hopefully it was still a good learning experience! Thanks for sharing the pictures. =)
    Maybe you could shoot me an email about how you like wordpress better. You’re not the first blog that I follow that has switched over…It’s making me curious!

    I just did my first “festival” and didn’t sell anything! Granted the booth fee wasn’t very much, I was still disappointed with it. I know how you feel!

    Don’t get discouraged. Our handmade things can thrive elsewhere 🙂

      Thanks so much 🙂 I’m going to another craft sale June 11. I’m an eternal optimist and still think I’m going to make a millions crafting. maybe that’s not optimism… maybe thats just silly!
