Well, I made it. Got to my first craft show and actually sold a few things! Unfortunately for the vendors and crafters, Wichita had a February temp of high 68 so the traffic was a little light. Most people chose to spend the day in the great outdoors on such a glorious day. We've had some really cold temps, so I don't blame them! I met some really nice people and bought some wonderful jams from Steve's Jams and Jellies.
I opened the Cherry Cheesecake right away to try it. It really taste like Cherry Cheesecake!
Ok, back to my experience.
We could choose to set up either Friday evening, or Saturday morning. I chose Saturday morning, so I could do a mock set up at home first. (I also had to finish up pricing and packing my items) I got up just before 6am, took my shower, loaded my car and drove over to pick up my niece, who was helping me. We arrived right at 8 am and got busy setting up. We were done by 9 and I am very pleased with how our booth turned out.
One of the things my family highly suggested was for me to take the Easter bunnies from last year and see if anyone wanted to order them. That was the best idea of all! I ended up with orders for 10 bunnies!
Here is a look at the bunnies from last year!
All in all, I am very pleased with my first attempt at craft showing. I'll be keeping a look out for another small craft show for the future. In the mean time, I have some bunnies to make!
