Default Am in over my head???

So i told my mom that i wanted to get a table at two city exabitions this year. One 2 hours away and the other 5 hours. Both are the first few weekends in augs. Only a week inbetween each other. But i have like 3 months to prepair.Its a 5 day event. So the way i look at it is if i come up with 4000 in invitory ( might be enought might not be) if its not enought whats the worst that can happen i sell out and have 4000 when my goal for the two shows is only a 1000 each show. I just really wanna do this to get some old bills paided off and take a trip. But to my mom thinks i am in over my head. I have 3 months so i think i could do it. BUt maybe its just me. what you ladys think. am i no over my head, or do it.

If you think you can do it, then go for it. But I must say 3 months sounds like a long time to prepare for it but really the time will fly and you might feel real overwhelmed when it comes closer to time. Just think it through real good and go with your gut! A lot of times it's easier said then done

Again, if you think you can do it, then go for it Don't want to get you discouraged, just want you to know what could happen. I've done things that I didn't think I could!

are there entrance fees for these shows? If so, how much? You need to factor that in to your "goal" as well. I would assume there are since they are 5 day shows ... those can be pricey.

I Just had a craft fair last weekend. It was a beautiful day so there weren't as many shoppers as expected. I signed up very last minute for the craft fair and I ws 1 of 3 bow vendors. I think I had about 2 weeks to prepare and I hustled. To me, it was worth it and I feel that way about all the craft fairs I enter. My husband thought I was in over my head, especially b/c I have another one in another 2 weeks and I'm a mother of 2, but I managed. Like the other ladies said, go with your gut and def. factor in any fees that might be involved with having a table. Good Luck!
