Craft Fair Success

I would consider Saturday’s craft fair to be a success- we earned 5 times the registration fee.  It wasn’t a huge sum of money but it made giving up a whole day worth it.  We still have some inventory left that we’re not sure what to with though.

We had a 10′ x 10′ area in the recreation center’s gymnasium.  I was just enough room for us to set up all of our folding tables to display our things.

We sold a little bit of everything and managed to completely sell out our snowman soup kits!  A woman even asked us to make a custom dinosaur tin for her grandson.  It was a fun day spent with a great friend.  I’m so glad we did this together.

Sadly, some of the vendors were not quite as fortunate.  Some did not have a single sale.  Yikes!  That really breaks my heart because a lot of them had some really cool things for sale.  The economy is quite bad here and many of the people who came to the craft fair were just there to look.  So many in our area are having a hard time making ends meet.  I just wish that things would finally begin to turn around but I’m not so sure that’s going to happen any time soon…  It’s depressing to think about so many families struggling.

    Glad to hear your booth did well! You had some adorable stuff! What about putting all the extra’s up in that old Etsy store you had? Or donating to a charity that would give away your items as gifts? I know you worked really hard on all your stuff, so giving it away may not be what you want…just suggestions though! 🙂
