I just completed my last show, possibly of the year! The picture above is of my tiny spot at the Buyer's Market of American Craft. This was my first wholesale show, all and all it was a good experience. I went into it feeling a bit ill prepared so the fact that I made it there is pretty amazing and that I had printed materials to hand out is even more shocking! This is not my usual way of going about things but sometimes life throws too much at you at once and you just have to do your best to get through it. And that is what I did. I know everyone wants to know how I did! I picked up a few orders, which seemed to be what the other group booth crafters did as well. I might have done better in my own booth but I might have bombed and paid a zillion dollars - so given what it cost to try this show I'm pretty indifferent.
Now it's on to the making! My shelves are pretty empty and I have a stack of orders to fill. After a little cleaning I'll feel back on track - also, I can finally put my show bins away and settle in for winter?!
