Default Craft Show-day 1

Yesterday was day 1 of my huge two day show. It is my third year doing the show. I have the same spot as last year. The weather is brutally hot. My assistant and I were pounding water all day but we were still suffering in the 95+ degree heat.

Traffic was brisk in the morning. Lots of early shoppers. It slacked off as the weather got hotter and hotter.

Luckily we made a ton of sales in the am. I am on track to make at least as much as last year, if not more, provided people come out today. It is supposed to be just as hot, so I am a little worried.

I had super nice vendor neighbors to the right of me. They even bought us a cold bottle of water when they went to restock. They are first timers and I had been giving them some tips. We sell totally different stuff, so it didn't hurt my business.

I'm so glad your first day went well. The heat here has been unbearable, too. I can't wait for those cooler fall temps!

Bet you're longing for our nice (cool) New England weather right about now... followed by brutal cold and snow and... wait, I'll be right down!

I love having good vendor neighbors, makes the shows so much more enjoyable. Fingers crossed that people will flock to the show today! The heat is a killer.

good luck. Hopefully it cools down a bit for you. If you need to make a profit you can always sell bottle water lol!

2nd day is even hotter! It has been brutal. We had 4 abulances arrive in one 30 minute period. Sales were okay but some people stayed home with the heat.

Wow... that's bad, especially for this time of year. Hope it cools down a little before you start breaking down the booth. Yuck...

Hubby and I went to Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain, GA on Thursday and it was HOT. Sure hope y'all survived the heat and made as much as last year!
