My First Craft Show

Today was my first craft show. It seemed liked I wouldn't get everything done in time but I did. I worked really hard to build up stock for the show and this morning I was blessed to have my family help me set up. I got off to a rocky start because I was right next to another jewelry booth and the lady kept giving me dirty looks. My husband wasn't able to help me past setting up because he had to take care of our little monkey. I was really lucky that both my parents really wanted to help. It was a fabulous day for weather 76 degrees with a light wind. It happened to be Dillinger Day's. I happen to live in Mason City Iowa where Dillinger robbed a bank. They did reenactments all day and offered music, food and fun. I sold 9 bracelets and got a order for a custom piece. Over all I had a fun day with my parents and made some money too. I got invited to another show in November and I can't wait!

Oh congratulations on your first show and it sounds like it was a wonderful success! I know how crazy it can be the first time and you did very well!!

I've been stuck next to another jewelry stand before but I'm sure your work was different and that's just something that happens from time to time. You handled it quite well!

Congrats! I had a great first show this weekend too. I really learned a lot about the process and feel more confident in doing some more soon.
