The only negative, was lighting!!! I know we would have sold atleast 25% more if we had lighting. It was very dark in the center aisles. The part that irritated me about that problem was that the girls had said that there was light and that we didn't need to bring any. Because we all would have brought our lights and electrical cords, if we knew lighting was a problem.
The place was very cool!! A great big high ceilinged, hardwood floored old warehouse.
They promoted properly and so there was a ton of shoppers. All sorts of fun and interesting people came to shop. It was definitely the place to be yesterday!!!
The crafters were fabulous, interesting, fun, and creative This was not your ordinary craft festival. I was able to find exciting, fun and unique items for my children's birthdays coming up (shhh, I bought a sideshow creature from www.zomberella.com). I bought fresh made the night before, lavendar soap. I also shopped from http://www.lintyfresh.com/ This guy has very cool tshirts and he is a great sales person. He knows his product inside and out, and is incredibly helpful when it comes to fit. I bought myself a beautiful, incredibly wellmade hairband from the girl next to me, http://www.easyedges.etsy.com/ . Her prices were fantastic. Did I mention that everyone had wonderful pricing??? You could afford it all. The girl across from me was selling very funky handmade metal belt buckles that were also bottle openers, http://www.myspace.com/buncombebuckles. I bought from Wren, of http://www.loveyu.etsy.com/ some very cute squirrels that face each other so they can kiss. My kids love their kissing squirrels. Oh and there was a woman with tons of fabric. http://www.shop.someartfabric.com/main.sc I found a fabric that I desperately needed and some others that I wanted very bad!!! My partner in crime, Diane from http://www.dkdesigns.biz/ bought a purse pattern from the fabric lady.
and what did I sell???? absolutely everything. My brand new, made on Wednesday bracelets were a huge hit. I have orders coming out my ears for them. My pocket mirrors sold well and were grabbed up by a brick and mortar store for resale. I sold lots of magnets and earrings and rings and bottle openers. It was a great show. I'm glad I had sales help.
I got to meet http://www.fluffyflowers.etsy.com/ and also http://www.soshesews.etsy.com/ these are some great girls with wonderful stuff!!!
