I've been a bit quiet this week, I know. I did a craft show on Saturday, and needed a bit of a recoup-time as a result. It was a successful show, and am very happy about that! This is a definite "Do Again" show. Although traffic was a bit slow (it's only the third time they've had this particular show, and they just started advertising it locally this year), sales were pretty consistent, and I did get many comments and compliments. Here are a few pictures of my booth....because that is always my favorite part of the "Post Show Blog Review"! ;)
(please note these pics were taken with my iPad...so not the best, but okay)
|I was situated in a very plum spot! Right next to the doors leading to the second, larger, room!|
|My colors are brown and sage green, with a touch of grunged cream.|
I always try to carry that, along with a well, not shabby, not grungy,
but kinda/sorta both, feel to my booth and displays.
Oh! I forgot to mention. This was the first time that I've used Square to accept credit cards. I used it on my iPad. *LOVE* this option!! I think that I only had two non-Square purchases...that "Yes, I can take cards" made all the difference in the world I think.
And, ugh, I hate this, simply because I'm super camera-shy (there's a reason I'm usually behind the camera)...but my sister took a picture of my at my booth that I'm actually okay with posting! Seriously. I hate photographs. Of myself. ;) Ah well. It's always good to put a face with a name, I guess! LOL
So, then, I'll leave you with some eye candy...these are some of the pieces that did not sell. I'll be listing them to Etsy soon, I think...
