I shared a little while back that I was able to do my first Craft Fair this last December. I have to say it was fun, stressful, exciting, encouraging, and I think it helped me grow as a crafter. Most of the stress was simply in the fact that I didn't prepare far enough in advance and I kept coming up with more ideas of things to make, but just didn't have enough time to make them. :o)
Anyway, here's some shots of most of the things I made:
These are the camera straps I made from leather and scarves. I also attached a cute camera charm to them.
These snowmen and reindeer chocolate bars were my best sellers by far. Only had a couple of them left. In front of them you can see the pretty Gift Card Holders. These were one of my favorites.
I had lots of cards to choose from.
These lip balm holders were good sellers as well.
Here's my table all set up and ready. I had an awesome helper for the morning. ;o)
I picked up this display piece from a craft store that was going out of business. Thought it might come in handy someday.
I had several of these wreaths. Each wreath came with 8 banners so you could switch it out with the different seasons.
These were one of my favorites! I had two designs, these nutcrackers and some snowmen. So cute!!
I have to say that my sales weren't that great that day, but then, it was a very small Craft Fair. I'm hoping next year to be ready earlier so I can be a part of the bigger one that is a bit north of us. I did actually sell quite a few things after the Craft Fair though, so all in all, I did pretty well and will definitely be doing it again.
I am going to close this here. Don't forget about my monthly special going on. Details below.
I am starting a new Monthly Special as my way of saying "Thank you" for ordering through me. I will be adding a little extra goodie to the Thank You Gift Pack I send out to my customers who have placed an order that month. I already send out a Thank You card and little hand-made goodie of some sort, along with divvying up the hostess credit to those who use my monthly hostess code, but this will be an additional item from our catalog and it will change each month. For the month of January 2016, anyone who places an order of $65 or more will receive a pair of Paper Snips.
IMPORTANT: If you select NO CONTACT when you place your order, I cannot, by law send anything to you, so if you'd like your free gift, please make sure that is deselected. I only use the contact information to send out your free stuff.
Please do NOT add this item to your order, unless you want a duplicate, as this will be sent directly from me, not the company. This is not a competition, there is no single winner, everyone who qualifies gets the free gift. I will send it to you along with your Thank You Gift Pack at the end of the month.
Hope you get a chance to do some crafting this week.
till next time...
God's love and blessings!
Note: please use the hostess code (you can find it in the upper right corner) when placing an order to get more free product! (hostess code is shown above). If your order is over $150 do not use the code as you are the hostess and get the rewards.
