My friend Kathy had this “brilliant” idea of us doing a craft fair this past weekend. I believe she had this “brilliant” idea at the beginning of October and it obviously didn’t matter to me that I had NOTHING ready and that I only had less than 30 days to come up with things to sell, because I said,”Sure, why not?”
Well 30 days turned into something like 10 days because we had a lot of things go on in October, but I pressed on and was able to whip out of few things.
Like these 100% cotton dish/wash cloths. They are soooo soft.
And I made a few Christmas stockings.
Some crayon rolls.
Dish soap aprons.
Then the day of the fair was here. We didn’t realize that this was the first year the park was putting this on. We also didn’t know that there wasn’t much advertising done in order to spread the word. But all in all it was fun. I got to hang out with my BFF all day and say the words. “And they’re from scratch, not a box.” about 50 times that day.
Oh wait. You want to know why I said that? Well Kathy made some delicious cupcakes that ended up being her best seller at the fair and I felt the need to tell everyone that they were homemade EVERY SINGLE TIME she mentioned them. I’m good to have around for things like that.
When it was all said and done, I sold 3 crayon rolls and 1 dish soap apron. But the way I see it is I now have things to open my Etsy store with. I just have to talk my daughter into taking some fabulous pictures for me.
And just to prove to you that it truly did happen, I’ll leave you with a couple pictures of our booth.
What did you do this weekend?
