my first craft sale...9:04 AM
So like I said, yesterday I had my first craft sale! It was for my Aunt's church. They were having a "Ladies Day" and brought together some vendors for the women to shop around in between workshops. It was a pretty small event, only 5 vendors in total, and there was a little bit of everything. Accessories, Candles, Beauty Products, you name it. No one had the same type of item to sell which was nice.
The craft sale was perfect for me because I was pretty much trying to sell all of the hair pins that I used to keep in my shop so I could start on my newest adventure :] I didn't actually end up selling as much as I would have liked, it was an older crowd and more neutral colors probably would have sold better, but I got a really good experience from it and am now confident enough to relaunch my shop!
With school and my hectic schedule, I wasn't able to focus on my display as much as I would have liked. I wanted a more pulled together feel but for throwing it together the night before, I think it looked really nice. My new dress form, which has lovingly been named Monique, was the perfect touch for displaying my scarves.
I took an idea from the lovely Julie Ann and displayed my biz cards in an Altoids can... it's like they were made for each other :]
Mike was a super cute fiance and kept me company ALL day long. He played some games on his computer and was in charge of writing receipts and keeping track of money. He's the man.
Over all, I can't wait to have my next craft sale! I need to focus on graduation right now but maybe I'll apply to be a vendor at the next Yellow Springs Art Show!
