Craft Fair!!

Here is my one and only picture of my booth at the craft fair thanks to Jessica at the booth next door. The weather was perfect - mild day (low 80s), a little breeze, no snow (oh wait this is TX), no rain, etc. The crowd apparently thought the weather was perfect too because I think they were all out playing soccer or something. (Just kidding). I'm not sure if it was the normal crowd or not, but now I know why you only find blog posts about successful craft fair experiences. No one wants to write about anything less than a sparkling success.

So looking on the bright side, I did make some money. I do have lots of inventory ready to ship. I now have fitted tableclothes, signs, onesie display rack, etc.

Lessons learned:
2. It really does take 2 or more people to set up those canopies. Fortunately I had help.
3. It is possible to over prepare.
4. Credit card readers may be great for some people, but I only lost 1 sale due to not taking cards. I guess it depends on the event you are attending.
5. Crafters are happy, helpful people. Everyone seemed to help everyone else in setting up tents and taking them down too.
