Topic Tuesday - Craft Fairs

Just last Saturday I did another craft show. Well...my husband worked most of the day because I had "real job" duties to do. I was amazed at how well the show went because I was one of about 10 booths. It was the smallest show I have done so far. However, I made the same amount of money with less people coming through!? I know it doesn't make sense to me either but I'm definitely not complaining.

My husband also helped me a couple weeks ago by painting the screen that I hang all of my pictures on.

Here is the before:

(the screen is now black!)
The above is also from my most recent show. He sold a lot of stuff for me : )

Below in red I've circled a little of what was sold after I left my husband to man the booth:

It was definitely fun to dig through my stuff later to find out what was sold and what I still have left!

Also, a big thank you to my Aunt who let me know about the show and took care of the booth fee and everything for me. Couldn't have done this without you!


  1. That is a great screen - really makes your pictures pop out with the new color!

    I had a great craft show this weekend, too - one that I went into with great trepidation because it was their 1st annual Fall Craft Festival - but it was much better organized than others I've done that are in 10+ years. I just love it when things work out!

  2. Thanks, Shore Debris! I'm glad to hear that your show went well too. Isn't it nice going in without many expectations and then being blow away? : )

  3. Congratulations on your little show! The new paintjob on the screen is great. I love it when people share their selling adventures - hope you have more fun sales this holiday season!

  4. The booth looks great! Congrats on a successful show.

  5. Thanks Prayers4Theresa and dogdazzle!
