Swag Barn jewellery and hair accessories will be for sale.   There are lots of other vendors being showcased too, I've heard that about 3000 visitors come to the show yearly.  Hopefully it will be a success!

Successful weekend

This past weekend was my SECOND ever craft show.  The 2-day event was considered a success!  The first day was much busier than the second day but overall I was quite happy with the show.

Again, thanks to my Mom for her help and merchandising expertise!

The feather hair accessories that I make are quite a hit with the younger crowd, especially at this time of year with Christmas and New Year's parties coming up.  I promise to post some photos soon...I know, I know, I have been saying that for ages but this time I will do it.

This week I will be bringing my pieces into work to see if anyone is interested in buying some Christmas gifts.  Also, I am planning an "Open House" in the early part of December for people to drop into my home and socialize and maybe even buy some jewellery.  A friend of mine also sells handbags etc. and will most likely bring some of her things to sell.  Great time to spread some Christmas cheer and buy a few prezzies while you're at it!

More detailed information will follow soon.

First Craft Show... check!

So, this past Saturday was my first craft show ever.  Everything went as planned, beautiful set up... done, photos of my table...done, selling jewellery... done, kinda...

I had a good day, sold a few pieces and took in the experience.  I made a profit and paid for my table but didn't sell as much as I would have liked.  I don't want to make excuses, but I don't think the "cleintele" in Acton was the perfect fit for my collection. 

Overall, I was really pleased with the day.  My Mom was a major help and she even stayed with me all day to keep me company.  Thanks Mom!

I can't wait to get ready for my show this coming weekend at E.C. Drury High School in Milton.  The 2 day event will hopefully double my revenue over the last show.  Hope to see you there!
