The show started at 11 a.m today, a much more humane and reasonable hour. People were lining up to get in, so again I didn't get a chance to look around to see what other vendors were there.
A lot of people came through the building, but again, a lot were "lookers", not buyers. My sales were really sluggish, but I had a lot of people in my booth. I did a lot of talking, but not necessarily selling. But the former can be positive as well.
I brought work with me today. I die cut a dozen spiral flowers, and sat and made roses for the first hour or so. One little boy stood and watched me with wide open eyes. He was fascinated by what I was doing. Quietyly he walked away and came back with his mother. "Are the roses for sale?" she said. I looked at the little guy and his eyes looked so hopeful I replied: "Of course". He was really worried that he could afford this little flower. He was so happy when I told him 25 cents would do, and I made a big do about wrapping his flower up for him. He left a happy little boy.
The remaining roses I gave to individual vendors just because! They were absolutely delighted - and surprised that I could make a rose out of paper.
The usual things sold today. Again, all occasion cards sold more than Christmas cards, and again I'm close to selling out of decorated note pads, & tag/ornaments. I also need to made some more designer business cards. See a post I wrote about how I do this here People tend to keep these cards rather than toss them.
How successful was my weekend? Well, the total income was again $500.00. So two very successful craft fair weekends.
I get a week off before my next craft show, which is a one day affair out of town.
