The Craft Show Was a Success!


Well, my first craft show was this past Saturday and I had a blast! I actually sold quite a few items, which honestly, surprised me. I didn't bring my embroidery machine to the show so therefore, everything had to be ordered. I figured that most people would want to take their stuff immediately so I really didn't count on any sales and hoped to treat the show as more of a marketing opportunity.

Boy was I wrong! I received quite a few orders! I also succeeded in making some great contacts for some future large jobs. All in all, it was definitely a success.

I would like to thank Rechelle from Cutie Pie Bows for basically making the entire show happen. Thanks so much for including me and helping me to "get my feet wet." I really, really appreciate all the help that you've been to me these past couple of months.

So, now the show is over and orders are due. Back to work I go!

Hi, I found your site through Google. I'm preparing for a 4 hour show and just wondered how much of your merchandise you brought to an 8 hour show. I only sell burp cloths and hair bows, so not quite as extensive as what you sell. Thanks for any help.
