I had none of display items down on the gulf with me, so my mom sent me a table cloth and my promotional items I had at the house. I picked up the shelf unit and the four milk glass dishes at an antique store for $50 total. Such a steal. I used vista print for the sign, I had a coupon for a free one, and Kara Haupt designed it for me. Everything else I made out of things I had on hand.
The day of the event I wasn't too nervous, I was actually pretty excited. The event wasn't a craft or gift show so I didn't have much competition. People responded so well!! It made me want to do a million more shows. I hit my goal and made my money back, so I'd say it was a win. I learned so much and what I want to improve on for my next show. You gotta fall to fly.
Hello to all my new readers I met at the show. You all were amazing and so sweet.
