What a disappointment!
Yesterday was the first craft show of 2009 for me, and boy was it BRUTAL! We had lots of people browsing- but not many buyers. My mom and my aunt also shared the booth with me, so they could sell their crafts too. It looks like the economy is really putting us crafters/vendors in a hard position! I sold 2 blank cards and a set of gift tags. My mother sold 1 candle, and my aunt had the better results than we did. She crochets, and had LOTS to choose from. She sold some dish towels, baby bibs, and some slippers. I hope the next craft show on April 18th does MUCH better. I think I will start to get discouraged otherwise! This week I would like to work on making some "squash books." I am hopeful of them, and think they will be a great addition to the things I sell at my craft events! I will keep you all posted when I finish one! I will be trying to be green with them and using recycled cereal boxes for the fronts and backs. It could be successful! (See- I am trying to be optimistic!)
