craft show report for 10-30 and 11-1

grandma_bonnieNovember 1, 2008

No shows for me - just Farmer's Crafter's Market - sold more potato bags. Was sprinkling this morning at the market and business was slow, but I made over $300 today and $60 yesterday (tiny market with very few customers...) Anyone else have a craft show that they did this week-end? Five crafts show this month and 5 more markets this month - two on Sundays! ...and then next month - only two shows!!!

We took a well deserved weekend off. The first since August. We have the final push to the end of the season in mid December. We're doing shows in New York state, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. All of them two or three day shows.
Then we're off until the latter part of January when it all starts again.

I did a show this weekend - Sat. only. I had a double space ($90). Sales were VERY brisk. My little money box was overflowing. It was fantastic. I couldn't wait for the hr. drive home to count my money, so I found an isolated part of the parking lot and counted up $979. I was so happy but exhausted. I didn't even have time to eat lunch it was very busy up to the very end. I love shows like that!

My next show is this Saturday and it is another big one. I will be very busy this week! We are also leaving on vacation on Sun., not sure when I will find time to get ready for that. I think I will have to skip sleeping this week. LOL!

Arlene,

You made over 10 times your booth fee. That's a successful show in anybody's book. Congratulations!
