What a relief! It's been a whirlwind 6 weeks of craft show after craft show, but this show marked the end. I don't know whether to feel sad or relieved.
This was another successful show for me in Buckhorn, with lots of customers and good sales. It was a true Christmas atmosphere with marvelous decorations made by the volunteers, and the vendors were so friendly we were almost a family by the end of the weekend.
Just a couple of things that stuck out about this show - several people came into my booth asking if I made stamps, and one lady was expecting me to have stamps for sale. All 3 were opportunities for education etc. One customer who had placed a large on-line order only a few days ago came and introduced herself. She decided to use me as her demonstrator because she had viewed my videos and then checked out my SU webside which indicated that I was a very active demonstrator. She stated that she was amazed at how many shows and classes I was doing and was very impressed. She ended up shopping at my booth while I chatted with her husband. So if any of you have SU websites and aren't putting your events on them, do so - people do look.
Like I mentioned, there was an air of Christmas infused in this show. Here are some pictures that reflect that:
Here are some of the hand made displays outside
Here's what the children made. They did a marvelous job!
