Show Report






Well I think I have had a chance to rest up so I thought I would catch you up on the details of the show. We went over the hill to Santa Rosa on Friday afternoon to celebrate Gino's 13th birthday at his Auntie Donna's house. He had requested beef stew for his birthday dinner (so I made a big pot), his Mom (Jenn) made cupcakes and Donna made all kinds of goodies, the best B-B-Que ribs, hot wings, pimento cheese and dips for the chips. We had a great time with friends and family.
We spent the night so that we could get up at 5;30. Jennifer is my show buddy she handles all the money and has a great smile for everyone. Plus she helps to carry in all the props and inventory which is greatly appreciated. Stopped by and got the largest coffee they make at our favorite coffee spot --Caffinos-- and off to the show for the setup. Show starts at 9:00. We had a ton of inventory and limited space so its always fun to see how it all works out. Well the doors opened at nine and we were off to the races. It was very busy, lots of people and I have to admit I do enjoy all the lovely comments. It stayed busy till about 1:00 and then the rain started and the customers left. But I have to say that in that 4 hours I made more sales then both shows last year. I am a very tickled girl. So I would like to thank everyone for all your warm wishes and sweet comments. Now I have to go and get to knitting I have another show in 3 weeks and a depleted inventory. How lucky am I!!!


Peace and love....

I did craft fairs many years ago with 2 friends. Always enjoyed the fairs but not the pressure of getting enough crafts together to sell. Your inventory is great. So many great looking items. FANTASTIC WORK!
