Let's start with "The Bad": The back room where I craft has been a bad mess for too long getting ready for the show. No walking space.
Tried to get a decent picture of the whole 5x16 ft booth with my phone but it was hard. I had a table, the old shutter door shelving and a couple vintage pedestal stands.
A pic of the table. People kept trying to buy the red & white chamber pot on the right so I had to take it off. It was just used to prop things up.
I had a snowman on a vintage bobbin with a jingle bell on its collar/ pattern by The Olde Country Cupboard♥. I cannot tell you how many people came up and started shaking the "snow" out of it! I mean everyone likes a good jingle bell ring every now and then but.... One lady asked if it was a rattle. Her friend said yes, it was. She said she should buy it for baby X. I told her it was was NOT a rattle and it was NOT safe for a baby. And then I put it back in the box, LOL! I was scared she would buy it and give it to a baby for crying out loud.
Which brings me to "The Primitive"
not a rattle (ha ha!)
For every person who didn't understand the primitive, there was someone who loved it. And connecting with those folks made my day! Lot's of GOOD!
Just a pic to show you the shutter set up. Didn't have a whole lot left on the shelves.
Except for the gingerbread couple - someone asked if they were voodoo dolls.
But the real kicker was my black snowman heads. Just about everyone thought they were rocks. Some simply pondered, others picked up and squeezed. At one point I wanted to say: "Yes it's a rock, now let me tell you how I sewed the eyes on..." (LOL!)
I have a few other pics and could tell you what seemed to sell and what didn't, but don't know if that would be helpful for anyone. They announced over the loud speaker that 2,215 people paid an entry fee and that didn't include the kids. People still love a good craft show! YAY!
Hope you all were able to enjoy Turkey and rest and survived Black Friday if you dared to venture out!
