Today was another craft show. I was looking forward to this one, as it was outside and in the parking lot of a coffee shop, which meant good coffee only steps away! I love my neighborhood so much, and today's event just made me so happy. A friend started this show, the first Sunday of every month May-September. I was supposed to do June but after having impromptu throat surgery, I had to pass on that one. So today was the day.
My first ever show I had NO CLUE what I was doing, but now that I've done a few every year, I'm really getting the hang of it. I know what to bring, I know what usually sells well, I know how much to make, and yet still always make way too much! Getting the tables set up is pretty fun, I'm always perusing Pinterest for ideas.
This show I had two smaller tables, which I covered with vintage table cloths (one was a kid's sheet) and I used my wire baskets I have for shows, along with Otis' toy drum, and my Irmi giraffe. He's been holding clothes in Otis' room, but guess what fits on him pretty well? BIBS! I love how it turned out.
I also used my tent to hang clothesline and I hung up some tag blankets and bibs on the side. Last but not least, my trusty vintage sheet bunting I stole from Ingrid's bedroom way long ago. It has since been taken over for hanging at my shows.
I did pretty well today. My goal was to make enough money to buy this pair of clogs. My god, red and cute and Swedish, I just died when I saw them. But money doesn't grow on trees and we need a new floor in our kitchen so I couldn't just buy them straight up. Well, I could, but I'd feel guilty later...Now I don't have to!
