Small-Time Craft Venture

Saturday was my first outdoor craft show for the summer. While sales were not a success, the weather was nice and enjoyable, though I did get a bit of a sun burn. (Ah, well. ;-)) I was limited to selling hair accessories, post earrings, and rings die to the beaded jewelry being sold by another vendor. At first this worried me that I wouldn’t have enough inventory to fill my booth tables out. As you can see from the pictures below, I needn’t have fretted…

Post Earrings Display

I wanted to make sure I made enough post earrings for my booth. Yeah. I think I made enough.

Headband Booth Display

See some new headbands you like? Don’t worry, I’ll be listing them soon.

Rings Display

Yeah. I think I made enough rings too.

OUtdoor Craft Fair Booh

No sales, but at least the weather was nice!

E-mail Sign Up Form

New! Now you can sign up for my e-mail newsletter at my booth!

The next outdoor show is scheduled for July 12th through the 14th at the Chewelah Park. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by! I’ll be selling a lot more than just posts, hair accessories, and rings too.

    Great booth! So sorry you did not get any sales. I am sure it was great experience though!

      Most shows are generally beneficial, even if there aren’t any sales. Though this one was slow enough for me to say I wasn’t so sure about this one being good for much, except a nice day in the sun! lol

      Thanks! Rings are one of my favorite things to make, and they’re usually a hit at craft shows!

    Wow! You sure have lots of items to display! I’ve always wanted to do a craft show, but I never have the time to make multiples of the same items to show. Maybe, someday… :)

      This didn’t even include my necklaces, dangling earrings, bracelets, anklets, lanyards, etc., etc., lol

    This looks like it would have been a super fun day! I know I always love to walk around markets and see what is available! (Plus, your offerings looked great!) Good luck on the next one!

    My goodness, I can’t believe you had no sales! Do you find most craft fairs all just full of fellow crafters looking for inspiration or a good old natter to like-minded people? Lack of sales is why I stopped doing them, it really shouldn’t be the case when you have such an abundance of beautiful stock.
