What a bummer! I've had a booth at our home town festival for several years and have gradually seen it going down hill fast. When you apply, you're told handcrafted only. Guess they considered anything that a human touches to be handcrafted. Lots of empty booths this year, too. None of the crafters were doing much in sales, but the Made in China folks were doing great. And the jewelry dealers. And if their jewelry was handmade, I'll eat it! Did hear a couple of crafters mention they were requesting their entry fee back. I did about 1/3 of what I usually do.
I guess the one good thing that came out of the show is, I don't have to work like a crazy person for the next show.
Sorry to grumble, but just had to vent a little.
I did sell some teacup birdfeeders, shimmering potpourri, German chocolate cake soap, foamer soaps, few lotion/gel sets, and menopause fans.
