Default first craft show!

I don't know if anyone noticed, but I've been missing this weekend due to my first craft show! It was not in the best place, but luckily we got enough traffic coming through. I made $320.00 (that's a gross number) so I did have a pretty good profit. It was a great experience for me being my first and considering that there were 4 other girls selling bows, I feel very lucky! I wasn't pleased with my display, it didn't really show how much I really had. What do you girls think?

Great job!

The only thing I would change is your spinner rack set up. It looks as if some of the bows and korkers are different behind the first bows showing. I would move those headbands you have in a basket, to the spinner rack since they are all the same. Them move the bows to the table. The spinner rack is really nice, but if I were to walk up to your booth, if I had to actually move the first bows to see what else you had behind it, I would just walk away. You have to think if you were a really picky buyer and set up that way.

You products look really good though!

thanks ladies, I wanted to do so much more, but I definately had enough stock. I agree with the spin rack I want my bows so you can see all of them, but i gotta think how. I want some grid walls!

Everybody, and I do mean everybody loved the flipflops, you know how people are with baby shoes. Anyway I sold one pair of flipflops, I kept telling people I could order bigger sizes, but I think maybe if I had them already they would have. What I think sold the best for me was the crochet headbands! I sold all my 1.5" ones, they were in lt. pink, hot pink, and white three packs, I sold a lot of the 3 inch also. The fourth of july items were big also. bow pairs and korkers also sold, and I had a few baby onsie and burp cloth sets that everybody liked. I'm hoping from all the praise I got I'll get a lot of customers at my site now.
