What I learned from my first craft show...

I knew a lot about selling in person from my upbringing in the carnival and doing fleamarkets.

Here's a good link for a lot of those tips

But I learned a few other goodies as well.

A good tent is a must!

Don't bring paper stuff when it might rain.

If it does rain before noon, all hope is not lost, but if it keeps raining until lunch,  then you may have a problem on your hands (this is from my neighbor, who makes his entire living off of craft shows).

Going to my first craft show

 My first craft show, the blueberry festival in Edmonton, KY starts in a few hours.

I'm excited, nervous, and scared all at the same time!

I'll post pics when it's over, if I can remember to bring my camera!

when I get to 60 sales, I am going to do my first giveaway, one of my world famous soap sacks will be given away to one lucky person. At 55 sales now!

Value Yourself

If you are not being treated with love & respect, check your "personal price tag". 
Perhaps you have marked yourself down. 
It's you who tell people what you're worth by what you accept. 
Get off of the "clearance rack," & get behind the glass where they keep all the "valuables!" 
The bottom line is, VALUE yourself more!
