I'm back, well sort of, now that my craft fairs are over I am trying to clean up around here. The Closet looks much like a bomb went off in there and the rest of the house has been sadly neglected for far to long. It make take me a while to get caught up to all of you but I'll be by soon.
Over all the craft fairs were disappointing. We had lots of foot traffic and while everyone seemed in high spirits, people were not buying. I have watched my sales and those of fellow vendors drop year by year as the economy continues to worsen. Each year one or more vendors decides it isn’t worth the effort and drops by the way side. Such talented people are missed.
I must say it was all I could do to keep from screaming every time I heard the word CUTE. Seems no one buys cute. I didn’t sell a single one of my votive candle cakes or the candle lollipops. The Magic Piggy Wands sold out at both fairs and I did sell out of my large Christmas planners otherwise I sold a little of this and a little of that.
Not the best photos but I’d like to share my set up with you and especially the lovely banner my sweet son Matt had made for me. It looks much better in person.
