buy handmade!

craft fair yesterday.  

i loce my displays, but they work better on smaller tables than i had.  i had no idea that it would be a full cafeteria table.  now i know to ask when they say that they will be provided.

Cookie Lee was there, which was a bit disappointing, i really don't understand why people like their stuff.

One girl kept bringing her friends over to show them my newest necklace which is designed to be played with while you wear it, and eventually got her dad and his wallet to the table as well.  even before she bought it though i was on cloud nine because of the 5 people she showed it off to.

the booth behind me was another girl from etsy.  she sells really cute handmade boxes with hershey's nuggets in them.  each nugget has a letter that she's printed out and they spell just about anything you want.  i think i'm going to get my mom and my brother's girlfriend them for stocking stuffers.  i might even be nice and get a "sister" one for sandy.  I know that she would like that.

i didn't really sell much, but i did learn that i need to ask more questions and that i don't want to do shows that will allow booths of The Pampered Chef and the like.  IndieSacramento should be good.

i don't want to over do with with a huge post, so i'll let this be and try for more tomorrow!
