I've been staying up until 3 a.m. every day this past week in preparation of the Flint Spring Craft Fair that happened yesterday. I say it was a success. I sold more than I expected, but I wish I had sold more. I think it helped expand my little store, but I don't think enough people took my paint chip business cards.
I know I started to get a little lazy when it came to spreading the word of my shop and crafts, but now that I'm not stressing over getting ready for another craft fair anytime soon I feel more motivated and inspired to create more. I'll update my shop soon with the items I made specifically for the fair that didn't sell, and when I catch up on sleep I'll start making more. I'm certainly looking forward to that!
Here are some photos of my crafts and table.
The face of From J.Loo To You! I was asked to stamp passports for craft fair attendees, so I was right next to do the door and a bit away from the yummy smelling coffee.
Paintings, gift boxes, earrings, and necklaces.
Embroidered wall pieces, jewelry, cosmetic pouches, hair bows, and broaches.
Jewelry and things.
Wristlets, tote bags, and hand bags.
A closer look at the embroidery pieces and what not.
I say it was a good experience, and I'm sure there are some things I could do to improve my sales. I try my best to ignore my shyness and talk to potential buyers, but most of my conversation took place where I had to stamp everyone's passports. Any advice?
